Albion's Under-18s suffered another heavy defeat against Brighton's youngsters on Saturday afternoon.
Markus Ifill's first-half hat-trick, along with strikes from Jaami Qureshi and Jake Gee put the Seagulls out of sight early doors, as they took a 5-0 advantage into the second half.
Efforts from Jack Hinshelwood and Zak Emmerson made it 7-0 to the hosts, and although Narel Phillips set up Layton Love to reduce the difference for Peter Gilbert's side, it didn't affect the final scoreline as the young Baggies suffered a second consecutive defeat.
Albion: Hollingshead; Hall, Machisa, N'goma (Olofinjana 72); Williams (Phillips 49), Heard, Lamb, Richards, Shaw; Hurlock (Higgins 61), Love.
