AFC Fylde 1-4 Maidenhead United
Dave Tarpey produced a finishing masterclass with a four-goal haul, including two penalties, as Maidenhead won 4-1 at fellow National League top flight newcomers AFC Fylde
His two first-half spot-kicks were followed by two more strikes after the interval as Maidenhead punished the hosts who played over three quarters of the game with 10 men.
Josh Langley was sent off, as well as being carried off, after committing the foul that gave Maidenhead their first penalty, awarded in the 21st minute.
Lewis Montrose then gave away the second penalty 11 minutes later, when his handball was punished by Tarpey's clinical second spot-kick.
Montrose headed in to cut the deficit to 2-1 in first-half injury time but Tarpey made the game effectively safe when completing his hat-trick in the 58th minute.
He rounded goalkeeper Rhys Taylor after meeting a pass over the Fylde defence before rifling in a 78th-minute free-kick for his fourth.
Tarpey, who scored 44 times in National League South last season, has now struck seven goals in four games this season to make him National League top scorer, two ahead of Dagenham & Redbridge's Corey Whitely.
