....Town's Park Avenue on Saturday. The Seasiders never recovered from the Lakesiders' opening blitz, which yielded two goals inside the first 7 minutes and, to add insult to injury, had a player red-carded for the fourth consecutive game.
Lee Hunt was only 80 seconds into his debut when he started to repay his large signing-on fee, snaffling a goal from close range after home keeper Steve Cann was only able to parry a Mark Jones shot. Mark Connolly had acres of space to add the second through a static home defence but Andy Parkinson came close for the hosts when rounding goalkeeper Terry McCormick only to see his shot deflected clear. Substitute Michael Howard had only been on the pitch 3 minutes when he received a straight red for foul and abusive language and further goals from Connolly and Hunt completed the rout. Four clubs grouped on seven points are chasing the Lakesiders, with The New Saints winning a stodgy live TV affair at Llanelli's Stebonheath Park 1-0.
Greg Draper struck the winner from 12 yards 5 minutes after the break, but the Saints had Matty Williams dismissed in stoppage time for a second yellow card. Prestatyn Town hit a club record six goals at home to hapless Carmarthen Town, player-boss Neil Gibson leading the way with a brace, the first from the penalty spot. Port Talbot Town found themselves behind to a goal from Newtown defender Kevin Davies at the GenQuip Stadium, but hit back with a Cortez Belle penalty and late brace from sub Martin Rose. Bangor City took an early lead through Alan Bull at home to Afan Lido before Jonathan Hood notched his second of the campaign to level for Andy Dyer's side. But Les Davies restored the lead and further goals from Chris Jones and sub Kyle Wilson completed a 4-1 win.
