Jordan Hunt's blistering speed then set up Arran Marshfield to run 40 metres under the posts, with Clay adding the extras.
Nailsea got themselves on the scoreboard when their full-back intercepted a pass and ran 65 metres to score midway through the half but that was their only reward on the day.
A good combination move between Roach and Goodland got Tor back on the front foot, with Allen cutting inside to add his second converted try.
Mark Cinicola then sent captain Alex Gooby under the posts for a try converted by Clay, before Goodland darted over the whitewash again to give the hosts a 38-5 lead at the break.
Roach continued the charge with another touchdown as the second half got under way and he capped a fine display with two further tries in quick succession.
A Tor lineout just inside Nailsea's half led to another catch and drive, with Goodland making ten metres before Allen finished off the score.
Goodland wrapped up the win with the final try late, with Clay adding the extras for his seventh conversion of the day.
