Champions Bangor leave students in a spin
10:00am Friday 14th February 2014 in Sport
WARRINGTON campus first team continue to struggle after a 9-1 thrashing by newly-crowned champions Bangor in their latest fixture.
Captain Ryan Cannon’s goal proved to be the only high point of an otherwise miserable 90 minutes for the visitors, who were taken apart with class by the runaway league leaders.
Elsewhere, the second string claimed a respectable 3-3 draw against campus rivals Chester.
Tom Elliott and Ryan Hanlan, two, got the goals for Warrington as they repaired some of the damage caused by November’s 5-3 defeat to the division leaders, who remain most likely to claim the league title with two games remaining.
Warrington thirds maintained their 100 per cent record as they struggled to a 2-1 win over Keele.
Michael Barton cancelled out Adam Dorken’s first half strike to seemingly earn an impressive point for the Staffordshire side.
But the table-toppers, who were kept at bay for large periods by goalkeeper Michael Wellings, finally found a route to victory thanks to Yiotis Alamanos’ winner.
The result sees the hosts rack up their fourth win in as many games this season, opening a two-point gap at the summit with four games left.
Full back Alamanos, after finding himself in an advanced position, saw his wild effort deflected past the helpless Wellings to earn a valuable win for Warrington ahead of next week’s crunch clash vwith second-placed UCLAN.
