Presteigne St Andrews picked up a point from a 3-3 draw against Waterloo Rovers in their Spar Mid Wales League fixture at Llanandras Park, but they will probably feel it should have been three as they led 3-1 at the interval.
After falling behind, Barry Williams’ side hit back well with Joel Layton levelling things up before Max Powell netted twice in two minutes to give Presteigne a healthy half-time advantage – and, by all accounts, a deserved one.
But the home side failed to hit the same kind of heights in the second period and Waterloo netted twice to take a point from the game – the view from some of those there was that this was probably two points dropped rather than one gained.
Meanwhile, St Harmon are in serious danger of becoming the Reserves’ nemesis this season as Andy Crowe’s side was beaten for the second time in the hills above Rhayader.
The talk ahead of the match was about how ‘Crowie’s’ side was determined to erase the memory of the League Cup defeat, but unfortunately it wasn’t to be.
Jamie Allen reportedly put the Reserves a goal up in the first half, but St Harmon hit back after the interval to win the game 2-1 and so posted their second home win in as many weeks.
While it was clearly disappointing for the Reserves, credit to St Harmon as – while I haven’t yet seen all the Mid Wales League (South) results – the three points gained should be enough to lift them off the foot of the table.
More detailed reports will follow over the next day or so as soon as I can get hold of the information while I will also post the 100 Club winners for February at some stage too.
If you are going to the Freddie Mercury night, hope you have a good time and please feel free to have an extra drink (if you are driving) as apparently the cost of three officials for the first-team match was more than £100.00….
