SAINTS OVERCOME PHYSICAL SEASIDERS

TNS overcame a physical Aberystwyth outfit with relative ease, although the match contained some sour moments which involved the crowd and the respective managers.
The Seasiders had given Barry a close shave a few days earlier in the Welsh Cup, but if there was to be a surprise at Treflan, TNS soon eased any fears when Steve Evans slotted home a hotly disputed penalty.
Nicky Ward added to the total midway through the first period and TNS were very much in control.
After three yellow cards had been waived, Kinsella got his marching orders after 55 minutes, although it didn't seem to deter the away side from their tactics.
Scott Ruscoe added a nerve settling third for the hosts soon after the visitors were reduced to 10 men, but they were able to hold on to the 0-3 scoreline despite the Saints' numerical advantage.
