Youth Football: Eaton Bray Lions

Eaton Bray Lions Reds - 5
AFC Luton B - 0
Lions continued their strong start to the new season with a good result against a busy and determined opposition. After three minutes, Tom Barbato put Lions into the lead with a long range shot, but it was not until two minutes before half time that Dax Roe scored the second, which saw some good passing and movement from Lions.
After making substitutions at half time, it was only four minutes before Roe got his second from a well placed shot and then four minutes later Jack Nevitt added the fourth.
Lions made their final substitution with five minutes to go and Jack Quigley came on and made it five.
Eaton Bray Lions U13 Girls - 1
AFC Kempston Colts - 3
A great match with Lions taking control from the start. Nancy Oliver did well in goal coping with a very long throw-in.
It was from a long throw that there was a forced error that gave Kempston the lead. Lions changed keepers due to an injury and Shannon did well to cope with the long throws for most of the remainder of the match. Lions controlled defence and midfield with a great performances from Katy Thiel and GoM Darcy Ashby.
Ten minutes into the second half, Megan Viljoen scored a well deserved equaliser and from then on it was all Lions until, against the run of play, Kempston's long throws caused more problems and Lions conceded two goals in the last five minutes. Lions were the stronger and better team so this was disappointing.
Woburn Lions U15 - 5
EB Lions U15 - 0
The first half of this County Cup match was a close fought affair. Dear and Moriarty worked hard for the visitors in midfield whilst MoM Gus Thorne and Taylor in defence thwarted the challenges of Woburn.
Even when Woburn managed to break through they found Ali Thorne just too good for them in goal and it was goalless at halftime.
Early in the second half a long shot from Woburn sneaked into the top corner despite Thorne getting a hand to it. EB responded quickly but a great cross from Audouard was kicked over the bar by Moriarty. EB failed to clear the ball from their area quickly enough, allowing Woburn to score their second, and then EB lost Audouard through injury.
This gave Woburn the edge they needed and they went on to score a further 3 goals as they overwhelmed a tiring EB team in the closing stages.
