Five goals of the highest quality from Fenton Hancock, Chris Moore, Caspar Courlander, Dan de Noijer, and Adam Morris.
As the teams came off for half time, it seemed a rout was on the cards,
In the second half, however, Thaxted played with renewed spirit, for which they and their coach should be commended.
They scored within the first five minutes, reminding the Yellows that no game is ever won until the final whistle.
No more goals were forthcoming in the second half as the Yellows slowly re-established control of the match, but there were several chances at either end.
