Penybont 0 TNS 4

TNS made light work of nine man Penybont to maintain their unbeaten start to the season.

Club record scorer Greg Draper was back on the goal trail with a double while summer signing Louis Robles also helped himself to a brace as the Oswestry side eased to an emphatic win in Bridgend.

TNS never looked back after breaking the deadlock inside the opening four minutes with Robles picked out by Adrian Cieslewicz to fire past home goalkeeper Ashley Morris.

The Saints continued to dominate and doubled their lead on 19 minutes with Leo Smith sending Draper scampering through before squaring for Robles to net.

Draper saw an effort cleared off the line five minutes later as TNS looked to seal the points by half-time.

However the home side rallied and enjoyed their best spell of the game with birthday boy Mael Davies and Nathan Wood both firing wide just before the break.

It was all over within seconds of the second-half restart when Kweme Boateng was felled in the box and Draper made no mistake from the spot.

Draper broke through the home defence to slot under the advancing Morris to complete his brace on 53 minutes.

With 12 minutes remaining the hosts were reduced to 10 men with Wood picking up a second caution and moments later Kostya Georgievsky saw red as Penybont ended the match with nine men.
