Wildcats put on a show to go close in Olympic Park contest
DENHAM United Ladies under11 Wildcats narrowly missed out on a semi-final place in a futsal tournment at the Olympic Park’s Copper Box Arena on Saturday.
Winning two games, with the others ending in a draw and defeat, the team played well and met Arsenal Ladies midfielder Leah Williamson afterwards.
United also won against Barnes Eagles on Sunday after goals from Madison Perry and Ellie Trigg and outstanding performances from Lola Almendros and Ruby McCulloch.
But the U16s suffered a 1-0 loss at Carshalton Athletic on Sunday, despite Denham dominating the first half with 12 shots on goal to the hosts’ two. The Carshalton keeper stopped Denham in the second half as the opposition, on a 3G surface, created two strong chances before a last-minute goal.
Kodi Spencer was voted parents’ player of the match against Carlshalton.
All other games were called off due to frozen pitches.
