Celebrations for the first league game on Carmarthen Town's new 3G pitch turned into a wake as TNS hammered the home side 5-0, Christian Seargeant leading the way with a hat-trick alongside goals from Blaine Hudson and Ryan Brobbel.
Kayne McLaggan went joint-top of the goal chart with his fifth of the season seven minutes from time as Barry ended what had hitherton been a memorable week for the Citizens.
There was controversy at Newtown's Latham Park where Callum Morris was credited with a goal following a goalmouth scramble, despite home claims that the ball did not cross the line when Jamie Price cleared off the underside of the bar (see Sgorio highlights below). Nevertheless, the goal sentenced the Robins to defeat and sent the Nomads into second place on goal difference above Bangor.
Cardiff Met got back to winning ways with a 2-1 home win over Prestatyn Town, first-half goals from Charlie Corsby and Adam Roscrow securing the points despite a stoppage-time response from Noah Edwards.
Cefn Druids shocked Llandudno at Maesdu Park, winning 2-1 with goals from Alec Mudimu and Mike Pritchard in the opening 27 minutes and, despite a second-half goal from Danny Hughes, the Seasiders were unable to force an equaliser.
