It took the Sparks just eight minutes to open the scoring at the University of Makati Stadium through Phil Younghusband, who clinically fired home a cross from Roxy Dorlas.
Four minutes later, Jeong Byeong-yeol doubled his side's lead with a powerful left-footed drive from just inside the box and three minutes before the half-hour mark, Younghusband netted his second with a neat header.
Jang Jo-won then got in on the act by scoring in the 31st minute, which was followed by a third goal for Younghusband three minutes after.
The Philippines international then turned proved five minutes before the break when he floated a pass for Mark Hartmann to volley home and give Loyola a commanding 6-0 lead at halftime.
However, they showed no signs of letting up in the second half added two more before the hour mark through Jeong and Chad Gould.
PJ Fadrigalan then made it grabbed the Sparks' 9th goal in the 71st minute and four minutes later, Younghusband added his fourth with a cracking effort before rounding off the scoring four minutes from time, after Wong had weighed in with one of his own in the 82nd minute.
The result was enough to see Loyola book their spot in the quarter-finals as group winners, ahead of Pachanga, who progressed as well following a hard-fought 3-2 victory over Laos.
Needing all three points to overtake Manila Nomads and climb into second place, Pachanga showed plenty of intent from the opening whistle and broke the deadlock on the stroke of halftime when Robert Canedo scored from the spot, before Hector Zaghi put them firmly in control when he netted in the 47th minute.
Laos did pull one back six minutes later through an Adrian Guillermo header and three minutes after the hour mark, the scores were level after Vincent Gambana fired home his side's second.
Nonetheless, Pachanga were not to be denied and eventually grabbed the win in the 81st minute when defender Yves Ashime ventured forward and score to send them through to the last eight, where they will meet Green Archers United.
Loyola themselves will play Philippine Army, who finished second in Group D.
