Welwyn Pegasus U18s are through to the second round of the Hertfordshire U18 County Cup after a 5-2 win over derby rivals Welwyn Garden City.
Pegasus took the lead thanks to a fantastic strike from distance by Jamie Riley which whizzed past the unsighted City keeper and high into the top of the net.
They doubled their lead after a retaken penalty was eventually converted by Jack Kimber. His first effort was well saved by the City keeper.
And Pegasus went further ahead after Ryan Thorlby struck a fierce left-footed curling free-kick into the bottom corner.
City also scored direct from a free-kick to narrow the gap before half-time but Tyler Edwards was rewarded for his efforts with a fourth 20 minutes into the second half.
And Pegasus put the result out of reach when a lovely move found Kimber in space and he finished in some style.
City did keep battling and scored a second late on but it is Pegasus who go through.
