ISE Lodge 8 D Town Saxons U9s 0

Clinical finishing as opposed to the wintry weather conditions put paid to Saxons’ brave attempt to upset title-chasing ISE Lodge.

Saxons were also punished for not marking tightly enough at set plays.

Saxons battled hard throughout and several players took knocks as a result of their efforts.

Man-of-the-Match was Hannah Ridgewell.

Black Panthers 1

A strong first-half performance by Weedon saw them lead by four goals at half-time.

But the game finished 4-1 with Weedon deserving their win.
