Guernsey eased into the semi-finals of the Island Games football tournament with a 4-0 Group B win over Gibraltar.

Dominic Heaume opened the scoring eight minutes before half time as he volleyed in a corner before Ryan-Zico Black doubled the lead a minute later.

Heaume got his second seven minutes after the break as he headed in Ross Allen's cross before completing his hat-trick with a spectacular volley.

"We talked about managing the game and being really intelligent, and looking after the ball, and all those things we did well," Guernsey manager Steve Sharman told BBC Sport.

"Our shape was fantastic and we really deserved to win the game," he added.

Heaume's hat-trick means he is Guernsey's top scorer with four goals in three games after a 5-2 win over Ynys Mon and a 3-0 win over Gotland.

"It's been a long time since I've scored a goal like my third," Heaume said.

"We've had three tough games in three days, but to a man we've put in fantastic performances in all three games.

"We've done what was needed, which was to win three games and make the semi finals, now we have another massive task of winning two games and hopefully taking the gold."
