Daniel Alaezi scored a hat-trick for the second week running as he steered Real Stortford under-17 Falcons to a 4-1 home win over Harlow Town Kestrels.

The hosts, who kicked uphill in the first half of the Mid-Herts Rural Minors League, Under-18 Division Four contest, took an early lead through Alaezi.

The visitors were grateful for numerous saves from their goalkeeper and then managed to equalise before half time.

Falcons did well to withstand some pressure before getting on top and they regained the lead as Louie Day powerfully headed home from Graham Humphries' corner.

Another corner from Humphries was only cleared to Alaezi on the edge of the box and he expertly fired in, before he completed his treble to seal the points.

Seb Smith and Aaron Spencer had chances to extend the lead while midfielder Tom Gleeson was man of the match.

Sam Ranford equalised to earn under-16 Bulls a point as they drew 2-2 at home to Whitewebbs Eagles in Division Three.

They went ahead through Charlie Sloan after good work from Ashley Elgar, but, despite having chances to pull further clear, they conceded twice to trail at the break.

Bulls looked like a different team after the restart as man-of-the-match Lesharn McManus-O'Connell and Charlie Baker drove them forward.

They got their reward when Ranford arrived in the box unmarked to steer home a corner before Jake Lacey and Elgar stretched the defence as they searched for a winner.

There was disappointment for under-18 Saracens as they lost 1-0 at Ware Lions to exit the League Shield in the preliminary round.

Bishop's Stortford Community Football Club under-16 Saints came from behind to beat Enfield 3-1 and go top of the table.

The victory saw them leapfrog their opponents and means they are the only unbeaten team left in Mid-Herts Rural Minors League, Division Two.

Some sloppy defending by Saints at a corner resulted in them falling behind, but they soon equalised as Alfie Smith collected Zen Rapley's pass and beat the goalkeeper with a fierce shot.

Smith then got in behind the defence again to double his team's tally before the interval.

The second half was a real midfield battle with neither side prepared to give an inch.

And, as Enfield pressed for a leveller, Saints wrapped up the win when man-of-the-match Trey Jarvis' exquisite through ball released Harrison Walker and he raced half the length of the pitch before firing home.

George Geddes sealed a 3-2 victory for under-15 Rangers over Sandy as they climbed to third in Royston Crow League, Division Two.

Finley Tritton and Callum Baker also scored as they twice came from behind before Geddes' outstanding strike earned them maximum points.

The under-13 girls were involved in a 3-3 draw when they entertained Harpenden Jets in Hertfordshire Girls Football Partnership League, Division Two.

Carolina Garcia gave Stortford the lead after just 21 seconds when she finished off an excellent move orchestrated by Lilly Fach.

In a frantic start, the Jets equalised and took the lead with only six minutes on the clock.

The hosts made several changes at half time and equalised when captain Bonnie Kirby converted Fach's cross.

Stortford went back in front as Keira Hider beat the goalkeeper after good work from Kirby and they had several more chances to pull further clear.

But, after Poppy Dwyer was cynically fouled just outside the penalty area when looking set to score, the Jets made it all square with three minutes remaining.
