NICK Partridge fired four as Ashbourne Aztecs Under-15s marched to a 5-0 win against Mickleover 95.
But it was his team-mate Eddy Donnelly who opened the scoring with a superb left-foot lob from 40 yards out.
And two minutes later he teed up Partridge to score his first of the game.
Donnelly's through ball was latched on to by Partridge, who beat the keeper to make it 2-0.
Tom Jones was the supplier for the Aztecs' third goal, reaching the byline before crossing for Partridge to score.
Mickleover started to bite back and Aztecs keeper Owen Ryan had to be on his toes to keep them at bay with a number of saves.
Kyle Bond had to replace the injured Donnelly before the break and Ben Sanders, Benjo Laurie and Alex Frazer-Smith all had chances to increase the lead.
Mickleover began the second half in determined fashion, winning five successive corners before Aztecs broke quickly. Oliver Sadler found Jones, who released Partridge down the left wing, the Ashbourne marksman driving forward before completing his hat-trick.
Ashbourne's back four of Luke Smith, Jack Coates, James Beresford and Sadler dug in as Mickleover tried to respond before Partridge bagged his fourth goal.

Aztecs keeper Ryan was still called into action to earn a clean sheet, saving a penalty.

Owen Bailey was playing a blinder for Aztecs and they made it 2-0 when Tyler Burton's corner took a deflection off an Alvaston defender to finish in the net.

Substitute Jack Beresford went close to scoring a third for Aztecs, while James Donlan was man of the match for an excellent midfield display.
