Everton Under-18s were ruthless in their 5-1 victory at Sunderland on Saturday.
Anthony Gordon gave Everton a flying start to the fixture at the northeast side's Academy of Light, the prolific attacking midfielder netting twice inside nine minutes.
Striker Manasse Mampala then took over, firing in two goals shortly before half-time and completing his hat-trick just after the hour mark.
The hosts responded with five minutes remaining to deny the young Blues a clean sheet — but they had long since secured the three points which lifted them a place into 3rd in the Premier League Under-18 North division.
Everton U18s: Hilton, Moore, Anderson, Collins, Ouzounidis (58' Richards), Denny (58' Kerr), Duke-McKenna, Scully, Mampala (64' Adedoyin), Gordon, Iversen.
Subs not Used: Johnson, Corke.

Anthony Gordon seems to be progressing well. Long may it continue.
