Sundon Park Rangers U9 - 0
EB Lions U9 Blues - 1

Eaton Bray Lions AFCLions extended their unbeaten run with a hard-fought away win over Sundon Park to go a point clear at the top of the table.

Shots from Sam Carter, Joe Rabey and Toby McGee might have expanded the margin of victory but only MOM Sam Bramston was able to complete, firing in from the edge of the area for a first-half lead.

Even so there was eye-catching football in the second as Lions unloaded a series of offensive plays, including a fine lob from Joe Thorne. Accomplished defending by James Glover, tireless support from 011ie West in midfield and another clean sheet from Cameron Burchill amounted to another strong display and a statement of intent for the 2009/2010 season.

Langford U12 B - 2
EB Lions U12 - 4

Lions made it two wins in a row with an away victory over Langford on Sunday. Having conceded a goal inside the first 20 minutes, James Hurley drew level with a neat finish to keep the visitors in the match.

Intelligent defending from Tom Horner, Ben Roberts, Jake Draper and Aarin Johnson ruled out the majority of Langford's goal assaults, while MOM keeper Dan Kennel) put paid to a string of difficult shots that broke through Lions' back line.

Increasing the pressure after the break, Lions opened up a series of scoring opportunities, Sean Woodhouse, Will Juster and Charlie Nevitt setting up enterprising runs into the Langford half.

A well-earned goal from Dominic Ryan and a clinical finish by debut scorer Chris McGee opened up a comfortable margin, which James extended further, netting his second of the match.

The hosts remained defiant though and, after missing a penalty, drew one- back with 10 minutes remaining. Even so, energetic runs from Mason Ashby, Alex Poynter and Adam Bradley maintained further goal threats, and a long range Aaron Gauntlett lob fell inches wide of Langford's upright.
