Real Stortford under-14 Falcons end on a high against league champions Whitewebbs Eagles
Daniel Alaezi’s brilliant hat-trick helped Real Stortford under-14 Falcons beat league champions Whitewebbs Eagles 3-1 in their last home game of the season.
Every single player rose to the challenge against their bigger and more aggressive opponents.
James Smith deserves great credit for saving a penalty at 2-0 and also doing enough for the Whitewebbs player to blast another over minutes later. Louis Day was also immense at centre-back.
Under-18 Lions defeated in-form Lemsford 3-1 to keep up the pressure on leaders Cheshunt.
They took a third-minute lead when Henry Wilson converted Michael Woodward’s cross. And the advantage was soon doubled as Callum Taylor slotted in after good work from Nick Bartels.
Lions uncharacteristically took their foot off the gas and could not turn good possession into a third goal, with Lemsford reducing the arrears from the penalty spot.
But the third goal did finally come as Oscar Gray and Adam Row combined to find Bartels at the back post and he squared for Dennis Earle to net. Archie Burrell was man of the match.
Under-13 Bulls put in a monumental effort as they lost 4-0 to high-flying Royston Town with only ten men. James Hanson made some top saves and man of the match Jake Lacey did a great job leading the line.
Bishop’s Stortford Community Football Club under-13 EJA won 5-3 at Welwyn.
Ben Smith’s brace was added to by Luke Ellis, Joe Nardelli and George Hoddle.
Under-12 Wanderers drew 3-3 with Standon & Puckeridge Hares in a six-a-side contest.
Tony Olusofan scored two goals and man of the match Ross Shinnock got the other.
Under-11 Town were runners-up in the Great Yarmouth Easter Soccer Tournament.
