Continuing their preparations for the 2013/14 Youth Alliance League campaign, Billy Russell’s were in impressive form right from the off and took the lead with the first attack of the game.
Sam O’Connor’s initial effort was well blocked by the Boston defence but the rebound fell kindly at the feet of the Irish youngster, who made no mistake second time round with a neat finish into the bottom corner.
The visitors got themselves back on level terms from the penalty spot on 20 minutes but City responded well and regained the lead just three minutes after conceding.
Eoghan McCawl was clearly fouled midway inside the Boston half, but a good advantage played by the referee allowed the ball to reach John Mahon, who took a couple of touches before finding the top corner with a sweetly-struck shot from 20 yards.
The goals continued to flow in the second half as City extended their lead on 64 minutes with a superb strike from Devonte Morton.
Collecting the ball with his back to goal, the striker turned and produced a beautiful curling finish from distance that beat the Boston keeper all ends up.
It was 4-1 just three minutes later when Max Clark scored from a direct free-kick after Daniel James had been upended on the edge of the box.
James then got his name on the scoresheet with seven minutes remaining. The Wales U17 international kept his composure with just the keeper to beat to slot the ball into the bottom corner.
Joe McFadden then completed the scoring four minutes from time when he latched onto a through ball before producing a low finish under the Pilgrims’ keeper.
