D Town Saxons U9s 2

Parklands Tigers Black 0

Super Saxons tamed the Tigers with a hard-fought but well-earned 2-0 victory at Parklands.

Title-chasing Saxons with two wins, seven goals and two clean sheets in their last three games showed they had learnt the lessons of the recent defeat at Welland Valley.

They passed the ball well as a team, made excellent use of the wide spaces and Luke-Barker Poole delivered quick ball into the danger area to good effect throughout.

Nayan Bryce scored in each half to maintain his impressive run of form and Aaron Hu deservedly won man of the match for a hardworking midfield display.

Alex Smith was commanding in defence with Saxons defending more effectively overall as a unit when under pressure.

Saxons should have scored more on the day hitting the woodwork twice and peppering the Parklands’ goal throughout.

Saxons were guilty on occasions of ball watching rather than following up efforts on goal, which if converted would have made for a more deserving scoreline.

Daventry Danes U13s 0

Wootton St George 3

The first-half was all Danes with Mason Graves, Sam Flockhart and Ethan Thomas all going close.

But it was against the run of play when WSG broke twice and scored twice. WSG scored again in an even ssecond-half. Mason Graves bossed midfield and was voted man of the match.

In the second-half Daventry were stronger going forward all the time and passing the ball well. A good strike from Ben saw him get his first goal 3-0.

Brixworth kept trying but could not get their passing going and with a good ball in the box Aston hit the bar and Ben was there with the rebound to get his second for 4-0.

Man of the match went to Aaron.

All Stars U11s 5

Woodford United 0

All Stars took the lead in the 10th minute and the Woodford goalkeeper pulled off several good saves to keep it tight at half-time.
