Bishop's Stortford Community Football Club round-up
Bishop's Stortford Community Football Club under-12 girls got the job done in style as they beat Hemel Aces 4-1 to win their post-lockdown group.
They only needed a point from their final game and, although their opponents pulled a goal back late on, the result was never in doubt.
Lilly Fach opened the scoring after five minutes before Alexa Baker brilliantly controlled a long ball from Phoebe Edmondson and gave the goalkeeper no chance with a powerful finish.
Kiera Hider and Poppy Dwyer added their names to the score sheet in the second half as Stortford eased to victory.
The Ladies also celebrated securing top spot in their competition thanks to a comprehensive 4-0 win over Bury Rangers.
After a nervy start to the contest in which they needed to avoid defeat, Lara Cauwels opened the scoring in a one-on-one with the goalkeeper.
Ella Fobbester struck to double the lead and settle the nerves before Alice Scott netted with a stunning volley.
And Emily Watkins tapped in a fourth on her final appearance for the club as they clinched top spot.
The under-13 girls were unlucky to lose 5-1 away to a strong Welwyn side, with the final score not truly reflecting the game.
Amy Lenihan scored with a crisp finish from outside the area and Ella Schneider hit the bar twice while, at the other end, Amber Owen made some brilliant challenges.
On the boys' side, the under-15 Eastern Junior Alliance team continued their march towards the title by beating Chelmsford 4-0.
They were two goals to the good at the break thanks to nice finishes from Sam Foster and Luke Ellis.
Chelmsford failed to take two excellent chances after the restart and Stortford punished them as Ellis netted again before captain Finn Osbourn claimed his first goal of the season from a free kick.
And under-10 Rangers produced an excellent display in a narrow 2-1 loss to Ipswich Town.
Oliver Pressman, Morgan Maddison, Reuben Reid, Sam Tredget, Konrad Heron, Ashton Begg, Jamie Mulheron and Hayden Webb, who gave them the lead, all played well in what was a great match.
