In between his strikes, Errol DeCastro netted the second on 24 minutes before Koesi Francis and Craig Mason rounded off the scoring in the 63rd and 70th minutes.
 
Jamie Phillip, who awfully missed a sitter in front an open goal when John Hughes were trailing 1-0, make it 4-1 10 minutes in the second half of the 70-minute affair but by then the result was inevitable as the home side bowed out with a single point.
 
Warriors had to avoid defeat in their last group game but managed to over Grenades, who despite having already qualified for the quarter-finals, who gave it a good fist.
 
Grenades took the lead when the top goals-scorer Elroy Shaw notched up his fifth from the penalty spot with quarter of an hour played.
