CARDIFF Met University have made a blistering start to the new campaign after narrowly missing out on promotion to the Welsh Premier on the final day of last season.
The unbeaten students made it five wins from six with a 7-0 demoltion of bottom club Garden Village, with a brace each for Adam Roscrow and Kyle McCarthy, alongside goals from Chris Baker, Eliot Evans and ex-Bangor youngster John Littlemore.
But second placed Goytre United, who have a 100 percent record from five games played, kept up the pressure with a 2-1 away win at Risca United.
Third placed Goytre hit five without reply at home to Briton Ferry Llansawel, who suffered a backlash from their midweek Word Cup heroics at Carmarthen Town.
Ton Pentre are in fourth spot after a 3-3 away draw at Penybont, while Aberdare Town are fifth after defeating reigning champions Caerau (Ely) 1-0.
Cambrian & Clydach continue to struggle and went down 3-1 at home to Afan Lido, whose first win of the season was kick-started by a goal on 28 seconds from returning striker Chris Hartland.
Monmouth Town overcame Aberbargoed Buds 3-1 while, on Friday night, Taffs Well and Barry Town United shared the spoils from a goal-less draw.
