Liam's hat-trick keeps Penlan firing
PENLAN Colts Under-13s came out on top against Mumbles Albion in a keenly contested game in Division B of the Swansea Junior League.

The result keeps them joint top after a draw and two wins in their first three games.
SA1 Stars enjoyed three wins.

The first was against Landore, with Joel Jones equalising and a late Joel Murnieks strike sealing victory.
A convincing performance in the second game against Garden Village saw goals from Dylan Thomas and Aaron Davies.
Stars finished with a local derby against Bonymaen, which they won 3-1 thanks to goals by Robbie Dyer, Joel Murnieks and Aaron Davies.
Bradley Parry had a hand in a number of goals, and once again keeper Jared Lake was outstanding. Equally impressive was Nathan Lake.
Treboeth Under-10s and West End played out a 0-0 draw in the first of the day's three games.
West End played neat passing football but Tito Anderson and Bradley Morgan made some excellent challenges and blocks.
When the defence was breached, keeper Nick Tooze made a string of point-blank saves to ensure the score remained level.
Treboeth's best chance was created by some skilful work out wide by the impressive Zak Connor. However, the onrushing AJ Storton just failed to make contact.
Talycopa United took an early first-half lead in the next game when they caught the Treboeth defence cold.
Andrew Toulcher thought he had equalised soon after but the Talycopa keeper managed three superb blocks in quick succession.
Chaquile Collins, AJ Storton and Zak Connor created a couple of chances early in the second half, but the ball would not go in.
The improving Brandon Williams won the ball in midfield before advancing but sent his shot narrowly wide.
Talycopa then broke away and despite Nick Tooze saving the first attempt, Talycopa's impressive midfielder stroked home the rebound.
He quickly doubled his tally with an individual effort to seal a 3-0 win.
The match was closer than the scoreline suggests but Talycopa deserved victory.
The final match of the day saw the Treboeth and Penclawdd Blue defences on top in another 0-0 draw.
Again Tito Anderson stood firm at the back, assisted by Bradley Morgan, who blocked everything thrown at him, while he also made some excellent surges forward.
Zak Connor and AJ Storton carved out several chances for Jamie Gibbs and Andrew Toulcher.
Chaquile Collins made some clever passes in midfield which allowed others to advance. Towards the end both teams threw everything forward looking for a winner. Tito Anderson was excellent and Nick Tooze tipped a fine Penclawdd effort round the post.
As the match entered the final seconds, the speedy Jamie Gibbs ran from box to box and looked set to grab a winner but the Penclawdd goalkeeper saved well.
In six games, Treboeth have lost only once, which augurs well for the rest of the season.
Brynawel Juniors Under-8s again showed good form to defeat Mountain Dew, Talycopa and St Joseph's.
Sam Evans and Billy Thomas scored two, Jac Ace a hat-trick and Jack Austin one, while Daniel Iqbal was in excellent form in goal.
Team: Daniel Iqbal, Sam Evans, Shay Nicholas, Kim Hughes, Jack Austin, Jac Ace and Billy Thomas.
Garden Village Colts suffered a 2-0 defeat to Plough Colts, who scored a goal in each half.
The midfield pairing of Lewis Sullivan and Dylan Thomas created numerous chances for Village, but they were not taken.
Village then found their shooting boots with a 2-0 victory over Bonymaen Colts.
Goals from Dylan Thomas and Lewis Sullivan gave them a hard-earned victory, though the Bonymaen keeper made a string of impressive saves to deny James Lawrence and Kai Hopkins.
Mumbles Rangers saw off Village 6-0 in the final match of the morning with a ruthless attacking display.
Three goals either side of half-time was more than enough to see Rangers home, and they could have had more but for some great saves by Jamie Burge in the Village goal.
