Striker Prince Esanga scored four times as Danson Sports Yellow overcame club-mates in Danson Sports Green during a card-littered clash.
There were as many yellow cards as there were goals as Yellow ran out 5-2 winners at Sheppey's Holm Park on Sunday.
“We dominated the game from start to finish, three good goals in the first half and then we let a goal in just before half-time that wasn’t ideal,” said Danson Sports Yellow boss Daniel Sault.
“We said don’t let them back in the game early in the second half but then it went 3-2 so to show that composure at 13-years-old to go on and win the game says how good they are.
“They’re a really special group of boys, they deserved everything they got and I’m really pleased for them.”
It took nine minutes for Yellow to get ahead as the won the ball near halfway and Majeed Ayilara’s rampaging run was finished off by Rhys Joyeux at close range.
The lead was doubled on 23 minutes when Esanga got his first of the game and he skipped past two defenders before his first-time finish was too good for onrushing keeper Chase Lawrence to make it 3-0 after 32 minutes.
Green gave themselves a glimmer of hope in first-half stoppage time when Iosif Evelin Munteanu fired in a low 20-yard free-kick.
That optimism increased further just two minutes into the second half when Yellow keeper Simon Olabode cleared the ball straight to Godwin Ukato, whose right-foot finish went in via the far post to make it 3-2.
Yellow had a great chance to restore their two-goal lead when a handball in the penalty area after Esanga and Joyeux were both initially denied by some stout defending saw them awarded a spot-kick. But Esanga sent his penalty well over the crossbar.
He was not to be denied his hat-trick as it was 4-2 just past the hour mark when Ayilara played in Joyeux and he unselfishly squared for Esanga to convert.
The game was wrapped up after 67 minutes when Esanga blocked a clearance and then raced clear of the last defending before rounding keeper Lawrence and slotting into an empty net.
The drama was not over there, though. There was an undercurrent throughout as both sets of players knew each other well and it boiled over in stoppage time.
A crude challenge by a Green player was punished with the game’s sixth yellow card. There was a subsequent red and yellow card shown to the Yellow management team after they voiced their disapproval at the decision.
On four-goal player-of-the-match Esanga, Sault added: “What a player. I just hope someone sees him. He has every attribute to be a top, top player. I hope someone comes up to me after the game and says can we have a chat with him.
“He’s lightning fast and as strong as an Ox - I’ve been up against him in training and come off with bruises all over me!
“When he signed for us last year he would score one goal in five chances, now it’s one in two or even better.
“I’m so pleased for him and I know he scored four goals but there were other players who could have easily been man-of-the-match as well.”
