Everton Under-18s maintained their high pre-season goalscoring rate by beating Preston North End U18s 6-3 on Thursday afternoon, two days after defeating Bury 6-1.
Everton raced into a three-goal first-half lead after George Newell converted from the penalty spot, Delial Brewster netted with a tidy finish and Nathan Broadhead scored from close-range.
North End then fought back, pulling one back just before the interval and scoring twice in quick succession after the restart. Once again, there were wholesale changes to Everton's outfield on the hour as they retaliated by scoring three further goals to win the game in convincing fashion.
Calum Dyson bagged a brace after twice breaking clear and finishing in impressive fashion, while Liam Walsh wrapped up the victory with a low 20-yard strike.
Everton U18s: O'Loughlin; Birch (60' Yates), Graham (60' Myers), Mellen (60' Thorniley), Robinson (60' Yarney); Davies (60' Kinsella), Bainbridge (60' Walsh), Charsley (60' Edge); Brewster, Newell (60' Dyson), Broadhead (60' Holland).
