THE New Saints racked-up their 26th-win of the season in all competitions to equal the 44-year-ol0d record held by Ajax.
Cefn Druids kept their opponents at bay for 41 minutes before going two down inside two minutes to Alex Darlington and Adrian Cieslewicz. Greg Draper added two more after the break and TNS can break the record with a win in the reverse fixture later this week.
Second-placed Gap Connah's Quay and third-placed Bala Town both won, the Nomads emerging victorious from the Flitshire derby at bottom club Airbus UK Broughton. After a goal-less first half, Les Davies scored at the far post from a Wes Baynes cross early in the second period. Matty Williams scored with a 15-yarder and Davies put the icing on the cake late in the game from a NAthan Woolfe free-kick.
Bala trounced Rhyl 6-1 at Maes Tegid with Lee Hunt bagging a hat-trick against on of his former clubs. A Mike Hayes brace before the break completed the Lakesiders' nap hand, with the visitors pulling a goal back through Carl Lamb and then suffering yet another red card with the dismissal of Rob Hughes. Stuart J Jones added the Lakesiders' sixth goal five minutes from time.
A Shaun Cavanagh goal five minutes from time sealed a 2-1 home win for Bangor City over north Wales coast rivals Llandudno at Nantporth. The visitors held the lead briefly through a Lee Thomas penalty, but Henry Jones levelled for the home side three minutes later.
Carmarthen Town drew 0-0 at home to Cardiff Met, while a late Kurtis March goal earned Abeystwyth Town a 1-0 home win over Newtown at Park Avenue.
