SAINTS MISS OUT BY A WHISKER
LAST season's Welsh Cup finalists produced a repeat performance at Jenner Park, but this time there was no penalty shoot-out and both sides had to be satisfied with a hard-earned league point.
Barry started with a bang and dominated the opening quarter, without managing to find a finishing touch in front of goal.
Saints soaked up the pressure and broek forward against the run of play for Tommy Morgan to score with a near post header.
Six minutes later Barry were level as Colin Loss chested down a ball on the edge of the area and cracked home a brilliant volley to make it 1-1 at the break.
Saints took their chance on 75 minutes, after resisting more Barry possession, when Chris Whelan put them ahead.
But far from being the final act of a cracking game, the goal only served to start a frantic finale.
Substitutes Cohen Griffith and Dave O'Gorman helped the Dragons get back into contention with eight minutes remaining.
O'Gorman provided a back header from a cross and Griffith nodded home from in front of goal, but barely a minute elapsed before Llansantffraid went ahead for the third time as Adie Jones rounded keeper Marc Ovendale to slide the ball home.
Barry showed their fighting qualities to grab yet another equaliser a minute from time as Tony Bird rose to meet a cross and Phil Johnson side-footed the ball into the net to round off the scoring.
