VINTAGE PERFORMANCE FROM MORGAN
TOMMY Morgan provided a vintage performance to inspire Llansantffraid to their first home Konica League points of the season.
Veteran Morgan rolled back the years as he scored two and created two more and virtually had to be dragged off the pitch when substituted in the 80th minute.
But it was by no means a one-man show with striking partner, Billy Morris, and new boy John Whelan also having fine matches.
Morgan put the Saints ahead after two minutes when he stabbed in from a yard, after Garry Evans' free-kick was fumbled by keeper, Geoff Livens.
Morris made it two five minutes later when he latched onto a 50 yard ball from Mike Watt to finish from 18 yards.
Almost immediately, Mold reduced the deficit when Richard Laughton scored a good individual effort.
Lively Morgan made it 3-1 on 21 minutes when lan Evans' mis-hit shot fell into his path to slot home from a tight angle.
Evans then wasted a glorious chance to increase the lead, shooting weakly at Livens from eight yards before Morris did find the target.
Morgan released Gary Jones whose harmless looking cross was dropped by Livens onto Morris's foot for a 4-1 half-time lead.
Mold rallied in the second half and pulled one back through a 25-yarder from Terry Jones.
Keeper Andy Mulliner was also forced to make a fine double save before the game was made safe in the 67th minute.
Morgan burst down the left and squared for fullback Whelan to finish at the far post to crown an impressive debut.
The fifth took the sting out of an enjoyable game but there was still time for Laughton to complete the 5-3 scoreline in the last minute.
The result eases Llansantffraid's relegation worries and if they can hit this kind of form regularly, they should see a steady climb up the table.
