Freddie Higgs and Finley Fraser help Bishop's Stortford Community Football Club under-13 United beat Welwyn Garden City Typhoons in Mid-Herts Rural Minors League
Freddie Higgs and Finley Fraser helped Bishop's Stortford Community Football Club under-13 United beat Welwyn Garden City Typhoons 7-1 in Mid-Herts Rural Minors League, Division One.
The strike partners scored two goals apiece as they maintained their unbeaten start to the season.
Max Hibbert scored from close range after great work by Finn Paxton and Josh Bowler headed home. The pick of the goals was Callum Castle's 30-yard lob.
There was also a brace for Rory Flood as under-13 Rangers overcame Bury Rangers Reds 3-1 in Division Three.
Jared Lolomari got the other goal and goalkeeper Enzo Dragan, along with the defence, played his part in ensuring they preserved their 100% record.
Tom Wildman King claimed a hat-trick as under-14 Wanderers triumphed 6-2 at Bedwell Rangers in Royston Crow League, Division Three.
He was joined on the score sheet by Luke Rosier, Jacob Lines and Lewis Crowther. Man of the match was Jonty Crow.
Under-15 Saints acquitted themselves well when they lost a difficult MHRML Division One match against Welwyn Pegasus Sapphires 4-2.
Ethan Gaynor scored from the narrowest of angles and Harrison Walker converted from Tommy Glover's set piece as they equalised twice.
Captain and goalkeeper William Lumby made several brave saves and man-of-the-match Trey Jarvis was outstanding at full-back, but Sapphires netted twice in the last five minutes.
Goalkeeper Oliver Bissell's save earned under-15 Black a 10-9 shootout victory over Enfield Borough in the Eastern Junior Alliance League Challenge Cup.
The tie had finished 1-1 after extra time, with Finn Slater on target for Stortford.
Unbeaten under-15 Red also advanced to the next round of the EJA Cup with a 4-2 extra-time success against Southend Manor.
Ben Smith's goal was instantly cancelled out by the hosts and they fell behind at the start of the second half.
A formation change and hard work paid off as George Collins equalised with a fine finish to take the tie to extra time.
Stortford then dominated and Joe Nardelli converted a penalty after a foul on Alfie Harris before the latter scored himself to seal the win.
Adam Blair-Park's goal was only a consolation as under-17 Rovers were hit by a smash-and-grab raid from Panshanger under-18 Lions as they went down 2-1 in MHRML Under-18 Division One.
They were finally rewarded for their good play in the second half when Blair-Park slotted home after linking up with Bryn Henriques.
But their cause was not helped when the tough-tackling James Caldwell was forced off with an injury and they conceded an equaliser against the run of play.
Henriques hit the post and Billy Martin was denied by the goalkeeper as Rovers looked like they could win it, but Lions somehow grabbed a second goal five minutes from time and Ethan Wildman's volley in the dying seconds went narrowly over.
Charlie Fisher, who ran himself into the ground for the unlucky losers, was man of the match.
Harry Wise's four-goal salvo secured him the man-of-the-match award as he guided under-12 United to a 6-0 victory at Risden Wood Rangers in MHRML Division One.
The unbeaten team's other goals were registered by Miller Fallis and Finley Jarrett-Morris.
Lilly Fach got the only goal of the game as the under-12 girls maintained their 100% start to the Hertfordshire Girls Football Partnership League, Division Four campaign with a 1-0 win at Hemel Hempstead.
She struck midway through the first half against a side who had not conceded a goal in their opening two fixtures, and they could have scored more as they produced some excellent attacks.
Bonnie Kirby was player of the match as she dominated in midfield and kept the opposition's chances to a minimum.
