Four hat-trick men in the junior section on Wednesday night with Sam Kirk, David Graham, Reuben Lennon and Ethan Hanna all grabbing the glory.
Also on the mark were Sam Carson, Caoilan Lennon and Karl Martin (2). Chloe Casement scored yet again to show the girls are every bit as good.
The P4 penalty king was Jay Dickson with Lewis Kennedy and Jamie Carberry sharing the P3 penalty crown after a series of sudden deaths failed to separate them.
A total of 14 players managed to get on the scoresheet in the senior section with coach Mark Murray having a job keeping a record of some outstanding finishes.
Daniel Noble and Luke Thompson were the most clinical around goals, each bagging a hat-trick.
