Tigers tamed by ram­pant Lamms

Egham News - - SPORT -

TWICK­EN­HAM TIGERS were kicked into touch as Staines Lam­mas U13s scored a scrum of goals in a 7-0 suc­cess.

Staines started brightly and never looked in trou­ble in a one-sided af­fair. The goals started flow­ing after five min­utes and there could have been more had it not been for the Twick­en­ham keeper who had a su­per game.

Jay Miller (2), Henry Starr, Ryan Porter and a hat-trick for man of the match Milo Miller were on tar­get.

Another U13 clash saw Spelthorne Sports lose 2-1 at Leather­head.

Spelthorne be­gan the sharpest, test­ing the home keeper on a cou­ple of oc­ca­sions but it was the Tan­ners who opened the scor­ing when the ball fell nicely in the box for a striker to tuck away.

Spelthorne were soon back on level terms when mid­fielder Har­ley Yates scored his first goal for the team, lob­bing in after a good free kick from Scott Jones wasn’t cleared.

Leather­head got an early goal in the sec­ond half to make it 2-1 and de­spite lots of pres­sure and chances from Spelthorne, they could not find an equaliser.

In the U15 Se­nior Cup, Staines Town were in­volved in a 10-goal thriller against Ted­ding­ton Ath­letic.

A hugely en­ter­tain­ing game saw both teams giv­ing their all with Staines win­ning 6-4. The first half was tense with Staines com­ing back from a goal down to lead 2-1 at half time thanks to strikes from Liam McMen­emy and Ja­cob Moth.

The sec­ond half saw seven goals in a 12-minute spell, the lead chang­ing sev­eral times.

Staines scored through Luke Nice and De­men Chan­dok – two in two min­utes – and a Rob­bie Dyson penalty which sealed the win.

It means the club play away in the quar­ter-fi­nals against Knaphill Vul­tures in Jan­uary.

The man-of-the-match vote went to Max Wil­liams for a gritty and de­ter­mined per­for­mance in de­fence.

At U16 level, Cam­ber­ley Town Reds ended up feel­ing blue at Lyne Lynx – the hosts run­ning out 5-3 win­ners.

Another good all-round team dis­play from Lyne saw them tri­umph, with ex­cel­lent move­ment and fluid pass­ing key to their vic­tory.

A su­perbly de­liv­ered cor­ner by Charlie Han­lon was firmly headed in by Wil­liam Gul­lick to open the scor­ing for Lynx, then Gul­lick added his sec­ond.

Two fur­ther goals by James Goodey, fol­lowed by his third from a per­fectly-timed through ball by Ben Luff, com­pleted the scor­ing. Lynx con­tinue to climb the ta­ble in the sec­ond tier of the East Berk­shire League.
