The bell tolls for Trostre as Hemingway racks up four
GOING great guns at the top of the table in division one of the Carmarthenshire League are West End United, who are seven points clear of the chasing pack following a 6-2 win at home to Trostre Sports.
With Trostre's pitch out of action, the game was switched to Penygaer.
Trostre started like the home side, playing attacking football and deservedly took the lead after ten minutes with a well taken goal.
This spurred West End into action and the scores were levelled within five minutes when Stuart Hemingway fired home.

The same player doubled his tally 10 minutes later to leave West End 2-1 ahead at the break.
The second half saw Trostre push forward but the home side held firm and as the game went on West End started to find more space.
The next goal came from Dyfrig Frater, whose great run through the opposition backline gave him an easy tap-in past the advancing keeper.
The advantage was increased within five minutes when Hemingway powered through the middle to notch another hat-trick.
The fifth goal came from the spot after the visiting keeper was outfoxed by the pace of Paul Thomas and gave away a penalty which Hemingway fired home.
A corner from Trostre saw them score a scrambled goal, but the home side rallied again and substitute Charlie Weston ran hard from full back to complete a 6-2 victory for West End.
Also in division one, Pwll Athletic dominated for most of the game at home to Felinfoel and thoroughly deserved their 3-0 win. After getting the better of the midfield battle, Pwll eventually secured the points through Gavin Evans, Marcus James and Kevin Evans.
Burry Port have games in hand to launch a promotion challenge, and they'll be delighted with a 2-0 win against visiting Caerbryn.
After taking the lead through Joseph Pullman, who rifled his shot past the keeper from a ball squared to him by Darren Pullman, Port secured the points when Dean Evans tapped in on 65 minutes.
Still rooted at the foot of the table are Llangennech, who were very much second best in a 6-0 defeat at Pontlliw. The visitors have only registered one win from 12 league games.
Drefach are still odds-on favourites to be relegated in division two, but the players haven't given up hope of staying up judging by their performance in the 3-1 win against Llandeilo Town.
The game was switched to Llanelli after the Llandeilo ground was declared unfit, and for the first 20 minutes their opponents were on the back foot.
Gradually, however, Drefach came more into it, and in the 25th minute they took the lead through Elli Digone. He got the better of a one-on-one with the keeper.
Digone, who was born in the Ivory Coast, is a student at Trinity College, Carmarthen, and is making quite an impact since signing for Drefach.
David Williams drilled a low shot past the keeper on 70 minutes to double the advantage, and Drefach looked on their way to maximum points.
Although Llandeilo pulled a goal back in the 83rd minute, Hedd Tudur secured the points for Drefach when netting from a free-kick in the 90th minute with an unstoppable shot from the edge of the box.
Kidwelly Town were involved in a tough away clash against Johnstown United, who came from behind to win a thriller 5-4.
Leading 2-1 at half-time, four of the goals for Johnstown were shared between Tom Harvey and Callum Deadman. Also on target with an equaliser to make it 1-1 was Adam Thomas.
There was a first-half hat-trick, all from headers, for Greg Fisher, which helped Garden Village account for visiting CK Swiss Valley 8-4. Chris Jones struck twice.
It was 4-1 at half-time to Village, and three more goals were scored by Joe Parker, Anthony Logan and Sam Richards.
In the big game in the premier division, Trallwm climbed into second place in the table after a hard-earned 1-0 win at home to leaders Loughor Rovers.
One goal always looked likely to settle the outcome, and it fell to Trallwm in the 70th minute when Liam Samuel let rip a free-kick from 35 yards.
After ousting mighty Seaside from the Senior Cup the previous week, Bwlch Rangers followed up with a 10-1 win at home to Wellfield.
Matthew Hughes and Clayton Jenkins scored four goals each, with Ross Morgan netting twice.
Only a couple of weeks ago Cross Hands were talking about promotion from division three, so it came as quite a shock when it was announced in midweek that the club were withdrawing from the league.
Gwendraeth Valley rivals Bancffosfelen were on top form in the away clash against KRUF, a hat-trick from Lee Williams helping them to a 6-1 win.
His hat-trick was the perfect combination, one goal with his left foot, one with his right, and the other a header. Also on target were Daniel Lewis, Jamie Jones and Lee Mandry.
And what a terrific performance from Pembrey in defeating Llanelli Steel 3-1 on their own ground.
After going behind to a penalty by Steven Myers early in the second half, Pembrey hit back through two goals by Dean Thomas. Sandwiched in between was a strike by Josh Bunyan.
Sitting at the top of the table are Greenfield Rovers, who beat Porth Tywyn 4-0 at home.
Dan Geary netted twice, while Chris Osborne and Kevin Davies also scored. It was 2-0 at half-time.
In reserve division one, Seaside, trailing to an early goal, recovered to beat visiting Camford Sports 2-1. On target with both goals for Seaside was Christopher Dawe.
In reserve division two, Burry Port came from behind to beat Gorseinon Athletic 3-1 in their own back yard.
Trailing to a goal by Ceri Williams at half-time, Port hit back through Tom Shaw, Josh Clement and John Fleming.
And in reserve division three, Frankie Vaughan, Chris Pritchard, Christian Forest and Keith Evans scored for Bancffosfelen, who beat Porth Tywyn 4-0 at home.
