A FIRST-ever senior goal from Shaun Cavanagh rescued a home point for Bangor City against Bala Town at Nantporth.

Michael Elstone scissor-kicked an early chance for the Blues over the bar from a Ryan Edwards cross while home keeper Connor Roberts tipped a fierce drive from Anthony Stephens over the bar.

Playing their first league game for several weeks, the Lakesiders broke the deadlock on 35 minutes when Ian Sheridan started a move before tapping home after Roberts had parried a shot from former City striker Lee Hunt.

Kieran Smith fired a shot against the post for the visitors before half-time while, at the other end, Ashley Morris denied Ryan Edwards with a superb save.

Sion Edwards hit the woodwork for the hosts in the second half with Roberts again doing well to keep out a Mike Hayes effort as Bala enjoyed the majority of the play.

Missed chances proved costly for the visitors nine minutes from time when substitute Cavanagh volleyed home after Town had failed to clear their lines from a corner.

City went close to a winner as did Bala, but Roberts made a fine save from Sheridan.

Aberystwyth's game at home to Carmarthen was postponed for a second time due to a waterlogged Park Avenue pitch and will now be played next Tuesday, December 22.
