STEVENAGE Town Youth continued their impressive goal-scoring record, seeing off Division One rivals Bishop's Stortford Rangers with a comfortable cup final victory.
After a quiet opening spell, it was Stevenage who began to take control with Jordan Spencer's tidy first-time passing setting up a number of attacks.
Town captain Ben Worbey was also impressive as his industrious passing and combative style kept the ball moving for Stevenage.
Jake Barrs tested Rangers keeper Paul Wavell with one low drive, while Wavell was also on hand to turn Rhys Ratcliffe's chance wide, as Town threatened to open their account.
Against the run of play Joe White hit the Stevenage bar with a looping header following a brilliant cross from the left. However, Rangers were quickly sent packing when Ben Robb slotted home Worbey's spilled strike from the edge of the box.
Wavell made two more decent saves to deny both Robb and Jordan Spencer, before he was cruelly beaten for a second time as Reece Bush's hopeful cross found its way into the Stortford net just before half time.
In the second half Town continued to turn the screw, and they had a third when Robb powered home a brilliant header following Ratcliffe's pin-point cross.
Luke Green then made it 4-0 when he won the ball on the edge of the Stortford box and lashed home a confident strike into the bottom left corner.
Stortford deserved a goal for the endeavour and commitment, but against such a solid Stevenage defence their forwards found chances few and far between.
Then with seconds on the clock Bush grabbed his second of the match heading in Luke Green's cross from the right.
THE remaining Crow League finals matches take place at Garden Walk this Sunday, first kick-off at 1pm.
