Druids travelled to Maes Tegid in search of their first points of the season - It was Bala who started brightest as Steve Tames found himself one-v-one with Michael Jones inside four minutes but could somehow only hit the side-netting to let Druids off the hook.
He made no mistake five minutes later, however, as Tames broke forward, beat a defender and curled home for 1-0 to give Bala the lead.
Druids were still in the game, of course, but Bala did have some good spells of possession as Henry Jones, Danny Gosset and Tames caused problems for Huw Griffiths’ side as the half wore on, but never managed to quite find the back of the net, and it stayed 1-0 going into the break.
Naim Arsan made it 1-1 with 33 minutes to go and leave the Ancients with a real chance of securing their first points of the season.
Anthony Miley rattled the bar with a header from a Jones free-kick late in the game, as Bala pushed hard to get back in front, but Druids struck the woodwork themselves in added time and Tames had a glorious chance to secure a winner palmed away by Jones in goal to keep Druids level, but it was Henry Jones who made the decisive impact as he scored a late winner for Bala.
Druids are now without a point in their opening three games of the season, something tha will be of concern to the Management team with Llandudno up next.
