U11s through af­ter 3-0 win

Harefield Gazette - - SPORT - By Jon Batham tms-sport@trin­i­tymir­ror.com

IT WAS a good time to be an un­der-11 at Den­ham Ladies FC this week, with both the Pu­mas and the Wild­cats pro­duc­ing im­pres­sive wins.

The for­mer over­came a slow start to book their place in the semi fi­nals of the League Cup with a vic­tory over Pro Di­rect Academy on Satur­day, with Evie Perkis, Jes­sica Polton and Phoebe Smith the girls on tar­get.

Just 24 hours later, the Wild­cats won 3-0 at Sut­ton, where Maisie Swan was in great form in goal to keep the scores level be­fore the vis­i­tors took con­trol with goals by Paige Hoile, El­lie Trigg and player of the match Madi­son Perry.

An­other side within touch­ing dis­tance of cup glory are the U14s, who ad­vanced to the last four of the U15s Cap­i­tal Girls Cup at the ex­pense of Pro Di­rect Academy. A com­bi­na­tion of U14s and U15s, saw off their ri­vals 2-0 thanks to strikes from player of the match So­phie Hud­son and Claire Weiner.

The U13s reached the third round af­ter they beat Broom­wood FC 2-1 with goals from Mia Al­men­dros and Sa­van­nah Charles, which was a fine bounce back from a 6-0 Hert­ford­shire League Cup de­feat to Steve­nage 24 hours ear­lier.

The U10s’ win over St Al­bans City Youth was some­thing of a fam­ily af­fair, with both Me­gan and Kate At­twell get­ting on the score­sheet, along with Keira Neill, and Scar­lett Tucker, who took the player of the match hon­ours, while the U14s bat­tled hard but went down 2-0 at Harpen­den Colts.

The se­nior team bowed out to hold­ers Charl­ton Ath­letic in the quar­ter fi­nals of the Cap­i­tal Women’s Se­nior Cup, while the U12s found play­ing a strong Tot­ten­ham side from the year above their level too big a chal­lenge, los­ing 11-0.
