Real Stortford FC round-up: Men are the Real deal as they blow away table-topping Unpredictable FC
Real Stortford Men found top-of-the-table Unpredictable FC lived up to their name as they blew them away with an amazing brand of attacking football to win 5-2 at Grange Paddocks and go level on points with their opponents.
During a tight first half in which chances were squandered at both ends, the visitors took the lead through a gift of a goal to go in at the break 1-0 up.
The second half was a different story altogether. Real equalised early in the period through Correy Davidson after good work from Charlie Kettle, and Davidson turned provider for Jamie Riley shortly after.
Unpredictable equalised against the run of play before Real put their opponents to the sword, Kettle supplying the finish to a sweeping end-to-end move, Davidson bagging a second and Olly Travell slotting home a late penalty to seal a memorable victory.
Hugo Vasconcelos was the Click Click Photo Centre man of the match with a superb display at the heart of all of Real's attacking play.
Under 15 Bulls three times came from behind against Wodson Park to eke out a deserved and hard-fought 4-3 victory.
Trailing 2-1 at the interval, after Ashley Elgar had netted for Bulls in the first half, Mackenzie Lewin scored their second equaliser, only for Wodson Park to reclaim the lead with 10 minutes from time.
However, Bulls, who haven't been blessed with much luck this season, made it 3-3 just a minute later through Darragh Flood and three minutes later Elgar grabbed his second to seal the win for courageous Bulls. Charlie Baker was man of the match with an influential performance in midfield.
Under 17 Saracens kept their long winning record going with a tough 1-0 victory away at Lemsford. In-form James Baird sealed the points with a cracking header. Saracens were unlucky not to get a second, with Ciaran Bridle going close after Josh Chinn had hit the bar. Man of the match was Bridle for his non-stop effort throughout the game.
Under 16 Falcons had a tough day at the office with a rare defeat, going down 5-1 at home to Hertford Town, who outfought an uncharacteristically lethargic Falcons side.
Daniel Alaezi got the goal that gave Falcons brief hope to pull the score back to 2-1 just before the break, but Hertford restored their two-goal cushion midway through the second period and grabbed two late goals.
