Two penalties from Andy Glover and goals from Stuart Pacey, Mikey Hutton, Joe Andrews, Michael Hegarty and Lee Curer sealed the win.

Kevin Pulman (two), Scott Kermeen, Jay Chatwood and Stephen Betteridge scored the goals in a 5-4 win at Gymns, who found the net through Jordan Cooper (two), regular marksman Max Stokoe and Nick Bowden.

Ramsey Youth Centre had too much know-how for Onchan, who scored through Josh Brockbank, in a 2-1 win at Lezayre Road.

Malew gained a fine 2-2 draw at Pulrose.

Barry English had given the hosts an interval lead with Owen Canipa netting the other.
