Barry Town 2-0 Connah's Quay Nomads: League leaders Connah's Quay lost their 100% record as they were beaten at Jenner Park.

Kayne McLaggon's penalty gave the hosts the lead after just six minutes, with Mamodou Toure making sure of the points for barry.

Carmarthen Town 2-0 Cardiff Met: Carmarthen earned their first win in the league this season to upset the odds against Cardiff Met.

Liam Thomas gave Carmarthen the lead, before Mael Davies gave the scoreline some gloss.

Newtown 2-0 Bala Town: Nick Rushton's goal brace at Latham Park extended Newtown's unbeaten run to three games and saw them overtake Bala in the table.

Cefn Druids 2-1 Llandudno: Cefn Druids secured their first win of the season to move off the bottom of the table at the expense of Llandudno, who are still without a win.

Dean Rittenberg headed home Druids' opener on 33 minutes but Steve Thomas levelled four minutes later, Llandudno's first league goal of the season. But Nathan Peate's second half header secured a much needed victory for Huw Griffiths' side.
