West Dray­ton spring a cup gi­antkilling

Harefield Gazette - - SPORT -

SA­MUEL Spasov led the way as West Dray­ton Ex­plor­ers un­der­12s claimed a cup come­back to re­mem­ber.

Play­ing a year up in the U13 Slough & Wind­sor Open Tro­phy, Ex­plor­ers looked down and out when they trailed 4-1 to Front­line U12s. Spasov though, had other ideas, and fired a hat-trick with Josh Odell and man-of-the-match Udonna Ukachkwu also find­ing the net, Ex­plor­ers fought back to win 5-4.

They weren’t the only Ex­plor­ers side in­volved in cup drama as the U15s also won a knock­out game in the tens­est way pos­si­ble. Goals from Bran­don Pritchard, Szy­mon Kowal­czyk and Josh Da­ley saw their tie with Golden Ea­gles fin­ish 3-3 be­fore Ex­plor­ers won the shoot-out 3-2.

Back in league ac­tion, God­win Usifo’s dou­ble set the U11s on their way to a com­fort­able win over TFA United. Reece But­ler, Ran­vier Jam­gotre and Cruz Ojo were the other boys on tar­get in a 5-1 vic­tory.

The U9s shared the goals around as they thrashed BJ Whites 4-0. Man-of-the-match Kasey Daven­port, Mar­cos Valero and Has­nain Riaz all found the net with an own goal adding to their tally.

Ex­plor­ers’ two youngest sides also got the win­ning feel­ing this week­end. Filip Pon­ski’s tre­ble led the way the way for the U7s as they trounced Taplow United 7-1. Ka­jus Cepas hit a dou­ble there while Aman­dio Mor­eiro and player-of-the-match Lukas Darzin­skas also hit the tar­get.

Not to be out­done, the U6s proved too strong for Sandgate U7s, win­ning 6-2. Kyan Po­lidire was the hat-trick hero there with Tommy Clarke and Fred­die Pe­nil also among the scor­ers.

The U10 Reds were the only Ex­plor­ers to draw, Joe Ros­siter and Matthew Keane’s goals se­cur­ing a share of the spoils against Chal­font Saints.

Else­where, Daniel Mikale’s dou­ble and an own goal could not save the U8 Blues from a 5-3 de­feat at Thames Val­ley Youth and the U10 Blues lost 5-2 to the same op­po­nents de­spite strikes from Al­berto Ro­driguez-Owens and Christopher Bur­ton.
