Teenager Matty Bell notched a hat-trick as Trojans thumped Winchester 6-3, the result leaving the city club stranded at the South League Premier Division basement.
The difference in game intensity between the two teams was apparent from the start as Trojans, in front of a bumper Stoneham Lane crowd, flew at Winchester who struggled to deal with the pace of the attacks, writes Jon Player.
Sam Broadhurst scored Trojans inevitable first goal from close range after six minutes and three minutes later James Butt was waiting at the far post to knock home a simple effort.
Trojans were relentless as they added a third on 13 minutes after an initial George Harris save and then a fourth on seventeen minutes as the ball was crashed into the "D" and deflected home.
Showing some spirit and refusing to capitulate, Winchester then rallied and began to win a meaningful share of possession and were able to pull a goal back when Harry Trussler drag-flicked Winchester's first penalty corner past Steve Cole in the Trojans goal.
Harris made another fine save with the ball travelling into the top corner, but Winchester finished the half strongly, planting another penalty corner just over the bar.
The second half went better for the visitors, changing formation to better compete in midfield but first they had to endure a Trojans fifth almost immediately from a rebound from Harris's pads at a penalty corner.
Five minutes later, Todd Hutcheson scored Winchester's second after an initial Cole save and shortly afterwards Ben Hibberd went close, flashing a loose ball over the bar.
Winchester were now creating chances and Kent Langridge gave Winchester some hope as the ball was drilled across from the Will Evans, controlled by Ben Hibberd at the far post and laid square to his long-time attacking partner to make it 5-3.
Colin French, hit the inside of a Winchester post, but James Pauley, effectively playing now as a solo centre back as Winchester pressed forward, was increasingly masterful in stemming Trojans danger. However, a defensive error led to Trojans final and killer goal and gave youngster Matty Bell a great hat trick in front of a good crowd.
