NORTH Wales Coast West Division One top scorer Luke Baum continued to impress as he hit another hat-trick for Talysarn Celts in their latest win.

Darren Usher’s side have been in a free-scoring mood of late, racking up 26 goals in their last five league matches.

The Celts bounced back from a 4-2 defeat to Bethesda Athletic in ruthless fashion on Wednesday evening as they hammered Y Fali 11-0 away at Cae Mwd.

Tom Usher was first on the scoresheet just 7mins in before a Morgan Jones own goal made it 2-0 two minutes later.

Baum joined in on the goal-scoring action on 19mins before making it 4-0 just after the half-hour mark.

Glyn Hughes-Thomas then helped himself to a brace as the visitors went into the break 6-0 up.

But if anyone thought that the Celts would take the foot off the accelerator in the second half, they were sorely mistaken.

Baum netted just seconds after the re-start to complete his hat-trick. That was his 8th goal in his last 5 outings.

The 20-year-old attacker has been in sensational form this season and is currently the tier five top scorer with 35 league goals to his name in just 23 appearances.

Tom Usher then hit his second goal of the game on the hour before substitute Sion Williams came on to score a brace (66’, 68’) in the space of 5 minutes after coming on.

Usher completed his hat-trick and the scoreline from the penalty spot on 71 mins.

That victory keeps the Celts in third place in the Division One table with four matches remaining for them.

Elsewhere on Wednesday evening, Bontnewydd claimed a 1-0 victory away at local rivals Mountain Rangers, Cai Edwards goal being the only difference in a feisty affair which saw six yellow cards produced by referee Robin Williams.

Llanystumdwy moved up to fifth in the table as they beat Llanfairpwll 4-2 at Dwyfor Park. Darren Parry was the hat-trick hero for the Gwynedd club, with top scorer Sion Parry also on target for his 34th league goal of the season.
