Nomads and Cofis win big to kick-off MD30

Aber and Druids play out stalemate at Park Avenue

Connah's Quay Nomads kept the title race going for at least one more day as they cruised to a 4-1 victory away at Bala Town.

Nathan Woolfe, returning from a loan spell at Airbus, bagged a hat-trick whilst Adam Barton got his first goal for the club to seal the victory and move them to within four points of leaders The New Saints.

Woolfe opened the scoring early on, charging in at the back post to power home Michael Wilde''s flick on from a long throw.

Henry Jones then equalised for the Lakesiders, slotting home on the rebound after Lewis Brass had saved his initial effort.

From a short corner, Nomads retook the lead, as the ball was played to Woolfe on the edge of the box and he lashed home a shot that swerved past Ashley Morris.

Just after the restart, he completed his hat-trick with a great no-look volley which squeezed past Morris into the top corner.

Anthony Stephens was dismissed for Bala late on for picking up his second booking, before Barton wrapped things up four minutes from time for the Nomads.

Caernarfon Town sealed a home semi-final in the European Playoffs with a thumping 4-1 win over Newtown at the Oval.

Goals from Danny Brookwell and Jamie Breese had the Cofis two up at the break, and Darren Thomas and Cai Jones struck early in the second half to make things comfortable for the home side.

Kieran Mills-Evans replied late on for Newtown, who can also secure a home playoff next week if they get at least a point at home to Bala.

Aberystwyth and Cefn Druids meanwhile drew 0-0 at Park Avenue.

The point leaves Aber two above Cardiff Met, who play Llandudno tomorrow.
