Six minutes of battling between both teams then commenced during which time Apex took the challenge to their opponents and put two more goals away before the end of the first half.
Lewis Fry had decent efforts to increase the lead following the break, and did so when one effort took a deflection into the net.
Two minutes later an unfortunate defensive move saw Letchworth awarded with a penalty and although 'keeper Stefano made a great leap for the spot kick it nestled into the right hand corner.
Letchworth were never going to get back into the tie and with just minutes left they conceded again as Apex wrapped the game up 7-2.
The secretary's award for best performance went to Kalvin Stocker for a superb role he played when stepping into the defence unexpectedly.
