Goal rush fires U10s
SANDGATE under-10s had two candidates for the matchball after going goal crazy against AFC West End on Sunday.
Nabil Mezali and Chouaib Halfaoui hit hat-tricks in a 9-1 rout which saw a brace for Rajan Hadji and one from Daniel Garrod.
Jake Nickless made a great first impression for the U18s, scoring a hat-trick on his debut as they beat St Helliers 4-0 – Fadel Odewole the other scorer.
The U16s had a hat-trick hero in the shape of Valentino Buonanno. His treble proved vital in a 5-3 win over SCR Colt Yellows with Abdi Ganamo and Taylor McGaw the other teens on target.
The U15s had several standout performers, the pick of the bunch being keeper Peter Scott, who made a string of superb saves in the 3-1 win at Manorcroft. David Kawalski scored a brace on his debut with the other goal a spot-kick from Ben Shiolou.
Sandgate had plenty of other scorers at the double in victories. Mikey Martins and Adam Smith each bagged braces in the U13 Arrows’ 4-2 victory at Ruislip Rangers. Archie Goodliff ’s two goals saw the U14s to a 2-0 win over Esher Wizards and Joshua Dean’s double for the U10s came in a 3-1 win over Bedfont Eagles where Kunmi Omijola was the other youngster on the mark.
Cassidy Cripps scored his first goal for the club in just his second appearance as the U12s drew with Kew Association. Paul Doherty was Sandgate’s other scorer while Callum Pullen was named man of the match.
The U11s also shared the points, in a 1-1 draw with Esher Wizards, Isaac Olum the scorer.
The club’s four other sides suffered defeat, the U9s going down 4-2 at Carshalton despite goals from Stanley Callier.
Strikes from Alfie Clark and Shane Cooper could not save The U12 Colts from a 5-2 reverse at league leaders Thames Valley while goals from Harry Ward and Charlie Side proved in vain for the U8s as they suffered a heavy 8-2 loss to Woking Cougar Youth.
And there was no joy either for the U13 Blades, who lost 3-0 to AFC Walcountians.
BRACING: An Archie Goodliff double saw Sandgate U14s beat Esher Wizards 2-0.
