THE men from Maes Gwyniad have continued their march in a big regional competition.

However, Bala had to do things the hard way to see off lower league Wrexham and reach the semi-finals of the Rybrook Land Rover Conwy North Wales Senior Cup.

A good-sized crowd was in attendance as Division One (North) Bala paid a visit to unbeaten Division Two (North) high-flyers Wrexham.

It was the home side who made the better start, with a converted try and a penalty giving them a 10-0 advantage inside the opening 20 minutes.

Stung into action, back came Bala and a converted try cut the gap between the teams down to three points at the interval.

The second half belonged to the visiting side and after some pressure, an unconverted try gave them the lead.

Next, it was the turn of Owain Aled to cross the whitewash as Bala moved nine points in the clear.

There was no way back for Wrexham after this and Bala secured their progress when Endaf Jones crossed in the corner for a converted try.

Jones would cross for another converted try to seal the deal for the visitors before the final whistle.

Thanks to his efforts to score two tries on the night, Endaf Jones was named as the Rybrook Land Rover Conwy man of the match.
