Boakye got the opener for the Black Stars in the 23rd minute before Partey doubled the the lead for coach Kwesi Appiah's side after three minutes.
The Congolese however pulled a goal back after Illoy Ayyet headed in from a corner, but the Stars restored their two-goal lead after Partey fired home for his second of the game right before half-time.
Partey grabbed his hat-trick with his 69th minute goal in the second before Boakye Yiadom hit the back of the net again with just 5 minutes to full time.
