A dream start to their big semi-final failed to earn the College of West Anglia a shot at national glory.
The CWA Elite Football Programme took the lead through Dylan Edge early on at home to Myerscough during their last-four match in the English Under-18 Colleges' Trophy.
That outstanding opening continued when keeper AJ Jarvis made a sensational penalty stop to keep his side 1-0 ahead. But a stunning free-kick from a visiting player in the 25th minute made it all square and the Preston outfit took control after the break to progress.
They found the net in the 64th, 75th, 80th and 84th minutes as they booked their place in the final against either Hartpury or Stanmore.
CWA Sport's Twitter feed said: 'FT: CWA 1-5 Myerscough. The CWA lads bow out of the national cup at the semi-final stage. Best team won on the day #teamcwa'.
