Six-goal Saints cruise past the Junction

THE New Saints cruised into the Welsh Cup's last eight with a comfortable 6-0 success at Llandudno Junction's compact Flyover ground.

There was never any doubt about the outcome once Steve Abbott had underlined the Saints' early domination with a 10th-minute 12-yarder from a Craig Williams cross.
And TNS were well inside the comfort goal with a four-nil half-time lead.
Former Llangefni Town keeper Liam Ewing, who otherwise made some superb saves, produced a schoolboy howler as he allowed Phil Baker's 25-yard free-kick to trickle between his legs for the second on 23 minutes.
Chris Seargeant surged past defenders to fire the third, before Steve Evans headed in at the near post from Seargeant's left wing flag kick.
The Junction goal led a charmed life for much of the game with Tony Wilson and John Blundell both making goal-line clearances, while Ewing saved superbly from Seargeant's goal-bound shot and a Scott Ruscoe 30-yarder.
The hosts rarely threatened Saints' keeper Paul Harrison, although Luke O'Mahoney's drive across the face of goal just failed to find a touch.
And two more goals inside three minutes emphasised the visitors' superiority, with Seargeant getting the fifth and Abbott a simple tap-in after a Williams header had hit the crossbar.
