JORDAN Hall grabbed his eighth hat-trick of the season as Royston Town Colts A under-13 hammered five past Hormead Hares in their final league game.
In a first half of very few chances, Royston dominated large periods, with Hall going closest with one effort rattling the crossbar following some clever play by Jack Bailey and Lucas Sekobawane.
Then just as it appeared the half would end in a deadlock, Jake Benstead crashed the ball home reacting quickest to an in-swinging corner.
Colts then went 2-0 up just after the interval, with Bailey and Benstead combining to free Hall who tapped in at the back post.

At this point Royston were in rampant mood, and they signed off in style with Sekobawane and Ashley Chapman's one-touch football picking out Hall for his 41st goal in 20 games, and his side's 100th goal of the season.
Buntingford Cougars under-15 also ended their season on a high note with a commanding 3-1 win at St Neots Town Boys.
Doing the double over the division runners-up, the result left the Cougars wondering what might have been had they played like this all season.
In a game they dominated almost from the off, Buntingford created a host of chances with Alex West at the heart of every move.
Michael Holland finally broke the deadlock to ease his team's nerves as Cougars took a deserved half-time lead.
By tradition, the visitors gave their opponents the first 10 minutes of the second half and as a result Town drew level following a calm close range finish.
Buntingford's midfield then returned to action, with Josh Sewell and Alfie Long particularly impressive. And when they found the forward-running Holland, the talented midfielder kept his cool and rolled the ball home for his second.
Moments later Scott Piggott made it three for the Cougars with another fine finish, as Buntingford ran out comfortable 3-1 winners.
