In an ordinary game of fluctuating fortunes Hotspur and Penrhyncoch shared 10 goals, and if any thoughts were of an easy three points after two away successes at Penrhyncoch already this season were quickly dispelled.
Penrhyncoch taking a two goal lead in 7 minutes which could well have been more by the quarter hour mark, however Holyhead showed fine character to turn it around by the break through Gareth Owen, Rory Courlander and a Jay Gibbs Penalty (half time 3-2).
Dean Garmey made it 4-2 on 61st minute but the visitors reduced the arrears on 64th minute. And on the 66th minute Holyhead were reduced to 10 men when Michael Luke Roberts was dismissed for diliberate handball as ball going in the goal, the penalty was converted by Arron Lemon to make it 4-4. Mel McGuinness was then fowled in the box 71st minute, Jay Gibbs stepped up and slotted the penalty away to make it 5-4, however on 80th minute Aneurin Thomas scored to make it 5-5.
Although in the end a point was perhaps okay with Holyhead down to 10 men for the last 25 minutes, Campbell and Garmey will want an improved defensive display next Saturday at Guilsfield.
