Team Wellington went back to the top of the ASB Youth League on Wednesday night with a 5-0 victory over the Wellington Phoenix at Newtown Park.
A Finn Moore hat-trick led the way for Team Wellington in the Round 11 re-scheduled match, two of those strikes coming in the first half along with a Wellington Phoenix own goal for a 3-0 half time advantage.
Moore completed his hat-trick in the second half with a 66th minute strike – taking his goal tally to 10 for season, joint top of the competition along with Phoenix player Gianni Bouzoukis and Auckland City’s Myer Bevan.
Substitute Nick Lane completed the scoring in stoppage time as Team Wellington went one point clear of second-placed Canterbury United.
The Phoenix sit in 10th position with two victories from their 10 matches played.
