FC Queen’s Park remain among the leading pack in the Welsh National League Premier Division after a 7-0 thrashing of Castell Alun Colts.
In difficult conditions, the Park’s first goal arrived when Edgar Lima cut in from the left and his delivery took a wicked deflection into a gaping net.
The second quickly followed when Aled Powell burst down the right flank and crossed to the far post for Lima to tap home.
James Gregory prodded in to make it 3-0 after 30 minutes before Barry Torrence produced a moment of brilliance to strike the ball beyond the keeper from distance to end the half.
The Park continued to have the upper hand after the break and another great cross by Powell allowed Torrence to head home at the back post.
Nicky Chesters had run himself into the ground by this stage after his first start in months and the Park produced the first of their veteran subs. The combined age of the three Queen’s Park repalcements was 128 years.
Before any more goals were scored the save of the match was produced by the Park goalkeeper Tom Belton, who kept his third successive clean sheet.
Lima completed his first Park hat-trick as he rounded the keeper to convert for 6-0.
Both Tony Jones and Gregory had suffered knocks and needed to leave the pitch, which meant veterans James Tizzard and Dave Evans were summoned to steady the ship.
Al Huxley made it seven before the end.
