YOUTH FOOT­BALL

Harefield Gazette - - SPORT -

KATIE Ack­er­man and Kayleigh Cur­rivan both laid claim to the match-ball as Den­ham Ladies U15s booked their place in the League Cup semi-fi­nal on Sun­day.

Both girls hit hat-tricks in an 8-0 suc­cess which came hot on the heels of last week’s league win over the same op­po­nents.

Ju­lia Thu­rauf and player of the match Alkita Rragami also scored in the rout.

The club’s re­serves were also League Cup win­ners against a North­wood side two di­vi­sions above them in the pyra­mid.

In a dra­matic game, Char­lieLeigh Dixon’s goal had the scores level, be­fore Emma But­ler grabbed the win­ner for Den­ham in the dy­ing sec­onds to book their place in the last eight.

The U14s had their shoot­ing boots on in league ac­tion, com­fort­ably beat­ing Hemel Hemp­stead 6-2.

Sha­nia Fo­ley and Niamh Reynolds bagged dou­bles, while player of the match Slisha Ba­jwa and Mia Steven­son were also on tar­get.

The se­nior de­vel­op­ment team came close to vic­tory against AFC Phoenix, but Kirsty Rus­sell’s late ef­fort rat­tled the cross­bar mean­ing they had to set­tle for a 1-1 draw.

The first XI were an­other side out of luck, los­ing at home to Nor­wich de­spite dom­i­nat­ing the game through­out.

The visi­tors scored with their only two ef­forts on tar­get, mean­ing Alissa Down’s lon­grange strike was scant con­so­la­tion for prob­a­bly their best per­for­mance of the sea­son.

Else­where, the U12s and U10s lost to St Joseph’s and Tot­ten­ham re­spec­tively.

Mean­while, Rayyam Mur­ray was West Dray­ton Ex­plor­ers’ big­gest hot-shot hit­ting six of the best in the U11 Reds’ 13-3 win over Taplow.

Sa­muel Sa­zov weighed in with a hat-trick while Ai­den Ed­wards and Cian John­son were also on tar­get.

The U14s en­joyed their first win over Boyne Hill in an­other goal fest. Danny Gnau­lati and David Gal­jak led the way with hat-tricks with Bran­don Pritchard and Jack Storey also scor­ing.

The U10s had sharp­shoot­ers of their own, Reece But­ler, Ran­vier Jam­gortre and God­win Usifo all scor­ing twice and Louis Bunn and Steely How­ell-Bur­ton one apiece in a 9-1 thrash­ing of Taplow Youth.

The U7 Reds al­most matched this feat in beat­ing S4K Sharks 8-1 thanks to dou­bles from Ruben Lury and Odeiro Brand and one each for Do­minic Gon­calves, Sean Shee­han, Harry Mac­fay­den and Aleks Ko­valenko.

Coun­ter­parts the U7 Blues also won hand­somely 5-2 against De­laford Colts thanks a brace from Kennedy Kithinji and fur­ther strikes by Joshua Onye­dum, Hamza Na­mani and Asanti Ra­jar.

The U9 Pur­ples also hit five in a vic­tory over Taplow Boys with Nico Mar­tucci and Rokas Bal­tru­saitis among the goals.

Char­lie Pe­nil, Joe Ros­siter and Tris­tan Vil­lacru­sis were the boys on the mark for the U9 Reds as they beat Phoenix OB 3-1, while the U8 Blues hit 10 with­out re­ply in vic­tory over SFK Wolves.

In other games the U8 Reds drew 0-0 but there were de­feats for both the U15s and the U9 Blues. WEST Dray­ton Ex­plor­ers U14s held their nerve to beat Sandgate U14s A on penal­ties at the week­end.

The Ex­plor­ers looked to be go­ing out of the cup when they fell 5-2 be­hind in the fi­nal 10 min­utes, but pro­duced a dra­matic come­back to force ex­tra-time.

West Dray­ton twice took the lead in the ad­di­tional pe­riod but it fin­ished 7-7 be­fore the Ex­plor­ers went on to tri­umph 4-3 in the end-of-game lottery.

Else­where, the U7s beat Foxes Whites, the U9s drew 2-2 at Foxes Or­ange, there were wins for the U8s Blues, U10s and U13s while the U8s Yel­lows and U12s were nar­rowly beaten. HAR­LING­TON NET­BALL LEAGUE RE­SULTS
