Dafen Cricket Club took on the Scarlets Allstars on Tuesday evening in a friendly game of soccer at Parc Y Scarlets, completing a busy week of community events for the rugby region.
The cricket team squared up to the men in scarlet while playing in Dafen 'Bluebirds' colours, the kit generously on loan from the village soccer team.
The entertaining game was won on penalties after finishing 4-4 at full time. Misses by Scarlets' Jordan Williams and Aled Davies in the penalty shoot out allowed the popular Simon Jenkins to clinch the match for Dafen, beating the keeper to win the game 4-3 on penalties.

Dafen's Kyle Letheren helped Dundee Fc's to a 2-1 win over Dumbarton to secure the Scottish First Division title and a place in the top flight next season. Two first half goals settled the nerves for the Dark Blues, but a spirited fightback by Dumbarton led to a successful penalty midway through the second half. Dumbarton almost followed up their goal with a shock equaliser, but Letheren pulled out a great fingertip save to ensure victory for Dundee.
Goalkeeper Kyle signed for Dundee in the summer of 2013 after spending just over two weeks training with the club. The 26, started his career as a youth player with Swansea City and represented his country Wales at under 21 level when only 17 years old.
Kyle was awarded with a trophy for Player of the Year days later, voted by Dundee FC supporters.
Two fascinating interpretive panels, researched and provided by Llanelli Community Heritage, were officially unveiled at the 'Box' Cemetry on Friday, 2nd of May.
The panels highlight some of the interesting people who are buried at the cemetery as well as giving a general history of the cemetery and its origins.
Dafen School pupils, who sang at the cemetry chapel for the unveiling, were presented with a scaled-down version of the 2.2m x 1.1m panel so that the school's current and future pupils can learn about their local past.
