Junior Hoilett netted a hatrick as Queens Park Rangers Under 21s coasted beyond Colchester United.
Rangers coasted to victory after a stunning first half saw them put the Us out of sight with ex-Chelsea and Israel defender Tal Ben-Haim turning out for the Rs.
Hoilett bagged the first of his three inside five minutes when he latched onto a Michael Doughty free-kick to swivel and power home beyond Carl Pentney.
Mo Sharif continued his good scoring form this campaign, latching onto Frankie Sutherland's through ball to convert the second of the encounter with little over ten minutes on the clock.
Sharif doubled his tally for the day, profiting from excellent work down the right wing from Michael Harriman - that coming after a period of pressure from the visiting side.
His goalscorer prowess was only matched by his eye for an assist, as Sharif's run and cut-back made easy picking for Canadian Hoilett to double his tally for the day inside 30 minutes.
Sutherland was unfortunate not to get on the scoresheet when his inswinging cross came back off the upright, but Hoilett profited for his hatrick and QPR's fifth.
Freddie Ladapo reduced the deficit with a goal shortly before half time, but the scoreline was even more damning for Harlington's visitors as Doughty bagged a deserved goal.
After being denied by a last ditch tackle previously, Doughty unleashed a venomous volley after a Sutherland cross was only half cleared, to rather epitomise a fine afternoon's work.
Rangers had a chance at seven when Tom Hitchcock's effort was handled, but first team midfielder Samba Diakité could only blaze over from the spot - the seventh did come however.
Hoilett tantalised before crossing for Hitchcock to make it seven with ten minutes remaining, and Michael Petrasso broke away to beat offside trap and net Rangers' eighth.
Ladapo did net another consolation for the vanquished Us, with QPR's first teamers getting a good run out, and youngsters such as Hitchcock and Sharif once again proving their worth.
