CROYDON were crushed 6-0 at home by promotion hopefuls South Park last Saturday.
In this one-sided affair, the visitors asked the questions from kick-off and they took the lead after 20 minutes when Kieran Lavery turned and placed his shot into the far corner.
However, Croydon nearly equalised when Jason Thompson forced South Park goalkeeper James Wastell into a good save from a free-kick outside the box.
But after 32 minutes Chris Smith double Park's lead with a chipped shot.
Wastell once again had to save a Thompson free-kick from 20 yards before half-time as Croydon looked for a goal back.
Just before the hour-mark, Lavery's shot from 18 yards was too hot to handle and the ball fell to Smith, who fired home on the rebound.
The away side should have been 4-0 up on 75 minutes as Lavery's goal-bound shot was turned in by Smith, but he was flagged offside.
South Park youth team player Jordan Hall replaced Lavery up front and was soon causing the Croydon backline problems. He was rewarded when he placed a shot into the corner to make it four.
Five minutes later, Hall raced clear and found the net again as he entered the danger area. And there was time for him to complete a ten-minute hat-trick.
