Tigers tamed by rampant Lamms
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.
