Former schoolboy goal-scoring machine Brian Brown and Leon Irving each scored second-half hat-tricks to power Montego Bay United to a big 14-0 mauling of Barrett Town on Wednesday to advance to round two of the St James FA Captain's Bakery and Grill Knockout.
But the first salvo came from attacking midfielder Kemar James, who fired the opener in minute five and it appeared to open the floodgates as Barrett Town wilted under the pressure.
Keniel Kirlew then doubled the lead in the 27th minute before Fabian McCarty netted his team's third seven minutes later.
4-0 at half-time
The rout was on in earnest when the speedy front man Allan Ottey pounced to add his name to the score sheet three minutes before half-time to make the score 4-0.
Barrett Town never looked comfortable with the Premier League aspirants' hunger for goals and fell further behind when Omar Gordon scored his first of two, five minutes after the interval.
From there on, it was the Brian Brown, Leon Irving show and the former Rusea's High sniper took United's match tally to six in the 52nd minute. He would score his second in the 76th minute and completed his hat-trick three minutes later.
Irving netted his triple in the 54th, 61st and 86th minutes while Kirlew scored his second in the 87th minute of play.
Elsewhere, Norwood Strikers behind goals from Renaldo Bernard (49th minute) and a 57th-minute winner from Odane Campbell, gave them a come-from-behind 2-1 win over Copperwood FC at Bicketsteth.
Copperwood took the surprise lead through an eight-minute strike from Dwight Hibbert, but failed to hold on to the lead and were pegged back by Bernard's goal before losing the plot and failed to advance.
Meanwhile, Western Confed Super League outfit Catherine Hall were awarded the win and with it advanced to the next round, after Paradise FC failed to show for their game at the UDC playing field.
