Two late goals sealed a 3-0 win for Bishop's Stortford Community Football Club under-12 Royals over Wormley Rovers Reds as they reached the Mid-Herts Rural Minors League Division One Cup final.

Louis Wilkinson's fine through ball created the opening goal for Arthur Hammick while stellar defending from Dan Evans, Arjan Sokhi and goalkeeper Preston Barritt kept the Wormley attack at bay.

And, after dominating the second half of the semi-final, they put the game to bed in the last four minutes when Joshua Taylor and Thomas Pugh netted thanks to assists from Zach Warner.

Under-18 Rovers also triumphed 3-0 over Paringdon Lions to qualify for the MHRML Division Two Cup final.

Jack Baros, who had already tested the goalkeeper on a couple of occasions, broke the deadlock in the 20th minute with a close-range header after good work by Cameron Street and Adam Blair-Park.

Rovers doubled their lead after the break when Billy Martin won the ball on the edge of the box and drove the ball past the onrushing shot-stopper.

The tireless Blair-Park, who was named man of the match, made the game safe in the closing stages by hammering home following good wing play by Jack Frings.

There was still time for some late drama as the talismanic Charlie Fisher was involved in a clash of heads and was forced to leave the pitch with blood pouring from a wound that later required eight stitches.

Unbeaten MHRML Division Two leaders under-16 Saints strengthened their grip on top spot with a 3-1 success at in-form Hatfield Comets.

Harrison Walker headed them in front from Seth Sheldrake's left-wing cross before man-of-the-match Trey Jarvis leapt highest to convert Tommy Glover's corner.

Ollie Green and Freddie Sperrin were then involved in a scintillating passage of play which resulted in Ben Seary scoring emphatically before the hosts got a consolation.

Freddie Higgs' equaliser earned an improved under-14 United a 2-2 draw with Bocas Tigers in the MHRML Premier Division.

The hosts took an early lead when top scorer James Mutlu dummied the goalkeeper before slotting the ball into an empty net.

Bocas went ahead with a close-range finish and a penalty, but United claimed a deserved point when Higgs beat the goalkeeper at the second attempt having latched onto Rocco Zuccarello's through ball.

Aimee Cole was player of the match for the under-13 girls when they suffered a narrow 1-0 defeat at Oaklands Wolves in the Hertfordshire Girls Football Partnership League Cup quarter-finals.

The visitors caused problems for their St Albans-based opponents in the first half by passing the ball nicely and defending well.

Stortford fell behind early in the second period when a free kick was cleared and Oaklands scored a soft goal on the counter-attack.

Good defending by Cole and Phoebe Edmondson prevented the hosts adding to their lead while, at the other end, Poppy Dwyer forced a smart save from the goalkeeper.

Finn Aylott and Josh Chinn bagged braces to guide Real Stortford under-18 Saracens past Lemsford and into a cup final.

They got the goals in a 4-0 away success as their side booked a showdown with Whitewebbs at Barnet in early May when they will battle it out for the Mid-Herts Rural Minors League Under-18 Division Five Cup.

Under-17 Falcons claimed the bragging rights on derby day thanks to a 1-0 home win over BSCFC under-17 Blues in Under-18 Division Four.

There was little between the sides and very few chances were created.

But, late in the second half, Aaron Spencer fired in from the edge of the box at the end of a rapid counter-attack.

There was still time for their opponents to win a free kick in a dangerous position, but Harry Wilson made a fine save.

Jeffrey Clarke was named man of the match for a dogged display in defence.
