Ja­mal Creighton fired in a hat-trick as Ter­minix La Hor­quet­ta Rangers ham­mered Guaya Unit­ed 7-0 to climb in­to the fourth spot in the As­cen­sion In­vi­ta­tion­al Foot­ball League Di­vi­sion One at La Hor­quet­ta Recre­ation Ground, La Hor­quet­ta on Tues­day night.

In the resched­uled match, na­tion­al strik­er Kadeem Corbin opened the scor­ing in the sev­enth minute for Rangers be­fore Samuel Delice dou­bled the ad­van­tage eight min­utes lat­er. The team got the third item two min­utes in­to time added on at the end of the first-half by Creighton.

Creighton made it 4-0 in the 57th minute with his sec­ond on the night while Jo­moul Fran­cois fired in his fifth of the cam­paign in the 74th to ex­tend the ad­van­tage to 5-0.

With nine min­utes left in the match, Creighton com­plet­ed his tre­ble to car­ry his sea­son tal­ly to four, be­fore Keron "Ball Pest" Cum­mings round­ed off the scor­ing four min­utes in­to time added-on

The vic­to­ry lift­ed Rangers to ten points from four match­es, lev­el with Cunu­pia FC and FC San­ta Rosa, but ahead of goal-dif­fer­ence.
