GRASSHOP­PER Greens un­der-12s se­cured a 5-3 win against Dy­namo United. United started strongly and took the lead af­ter some good early pres­sure. Grasshop­pers fought back and were back in front at half-time. The home side held out for the win de­spite a bat­tling per­for­mance by the Dy­namos. A hat-trick from Emma Gun­ton guided Grasshop­per girls’ un­der-12s to a 3-2 win against Dover Rangers. Grasshop­per started strongly and two goals from Gun­ton gave them a 2-0 lead at half-time. In the sec­ond half, poor de­fend­ing al­lowed Dover to pull level be­fore Gun­ton fired home the win­ner. The un­der-10s were held to a 1-1 draw against Dover Rangers. Grasshop­per opened the scor­ing through Harry Hodg­son and looked to be head­ing for all three points un­til some poor de­fend­ing al­lowed Dover to score the equaliser late on. � ROM­NEY COUGARS went down to a late win­ner against Hast­ings Gun­ners on Sun­day. Gun­ners took the lead from a free-kick which Harry Welsby equalised. Both teams pro­duced good foot­ball in the sec­ond half be­fore the Gun­ners broke through to snatch the win­ner.
