Ruthin won three very valuable points with two goals from midfielder Pat Hinchcliffe.
The game was an even contest before Ruthin broke the deadlock with a fine shot from
Hinchliffe on 24 minutes. Holywell levelled the scoring with a headed goal by
Matthew Harvey from a corner just before half time.
Both sides went on to win the game with Ruthin having to face some sustained
pressure in the second half. Pat Hinchcliffe eased the tension for the home side
with a nice individual goal as he cut in from the right with half an hour to go.
Chances fell to both sides as Holywell pressed for an equaliser with Ruthin looking
dangerous on the break.
Ruthin stood firm to take the points with a much improved performance.
