...championship decider at the end of April and it was City who grabbed the title.
It was a different story in front of the S4C cameras on Saturday afternoon, the visitors gaining sweet revenge with a 3-0 victory.
The winning margin does not reflect a game in which Neville Powell's side had much the better of the first half after Steve Evans had given the Saints a 4th minute lead.
Twice the home side hit the visitors` woodwork and also had one cleared off the line, but you have to take your chances in tight games and they were made to pay for their misses after the break.
Greg Draper got the visitors second on the hour-mark and Matty Williams sealed a good afternoon for the former champions when he gained possession on the half way line and calmly struck the ball passed Idzi in the Bangor goal.
That win takes Mike Davies' side into second, but it's Bala Town who stay top after a 1-0 win at Prestatyn Town, Mark Connolly getting the visitors winner 10 minutes before the break.
Colin Caton's side are not the most prolific goalscorers, but they have the meanest of defences and this was their fifth consecutive clean sheet.
The only goal that they have conceded so far being in their 1-1 draw at TNS on the opening day of the season.
The side with the worst defensive record so far is Newtown, who were at Llanelli on Saturday afternoon and were on the wrong end of an incredible 9-2 drubbing.
Both Craig Moses and the prolific Rhys Griffiths scored hat-tricks for the Reds, while Chris Venables grabbed a brace.
It was certainly an afternoon to forget for the visitors, who look likely to face a difficult campaign.
Saturday's fourth match was at Park Avenue, where Aberystwyth Town entertained Port Talbot Town.
The Seasiders had seen a player sent-off in their four previous games and at least they managed to finish with a full complement for the first time this season.
It did them precious little good, however, as first half goals from Cortez Belle and Chris Hartland ensured the visitors went home with the three points.
