Airbus crash land in Treflan rout

AIRBUS crash-landed at Treflan with a vengeance as their side of academy youngsters were given a pasting by the Saints.
Ken McKenna's men were not flattered by the scoreline, which could easily have reached 20-0, prompting league secretary John Deakin to write to the Wingmakers for an explanation.
In a facile affair, three players notched hat-tricks, including Michael Wilde, who came off the bench at half-time.
Martyn Naylor prompted the rout on 13 minutes with a cross that was knocked back by Scott Ruscoe for Nicky Ward to convert.
A rare Tommy Holmes goal seven minutes later ended a great run and cut into the box and Airbus keeper Ashley Crossthwaite knew it was going to be a long night.
Ward hit the bar before exchanging passes with Toner and sidefooting the third, with Ruscoe adding a fourth before the break.
Gerard Doherty made a rare save to stop Leigh Jones, but the goals continued thick and fast with Hogan and Ruscoe in turn crossing for Toner to grab his second and third of the night. Wilde headed in his first from Toner's cross, adding another when Michael Jackson's long ball found Hogan in space to set-up his team-mate.
Ward added the ninth before a double salvo within a minute added more woe for the visitors, Toner's pace putting in Ward and Wilde in quick succession.
It was men against boys, but at least the visitors prevented TNS from adding another and notching their highest-ever score in competitive football.
