A DISAPPOINTING second half for the young Reserves saw them concede three goals in the last 15 minutes to lose 4-1 to Treaddur Bay in the quarter-finals of the Lock Stock Fireworks League Challenge Cup at The Oval.
The visitors came out of the traps quickly and went ahead after only five minutes from a hopeful ball forward that eluded the Bay defence.
The windy conditions made it difficult for both teams to settle into a rhtym, but Colwyn Bay equalised when a perfectly timed through ball from Michael Taylor enabled Greg Hall to bear down on goal and made no mistake from a tight angle
Trearddur Bay hit the angle of bar and post shortly afterwards following an impressive attacking move, but there were no other clear cut chances created and the teams went in at half-time level at 1-1, with Colwyn Bay finishing the half the better.
There were early signs that the Bay were going to take control of the game in the second half, but the away team nullified Bay’s attacking threat very well throughout the majority of the half, and with every passing minute started to look the more likely winners.
