Barking Colts 3 Loughton 1
BARKING Colts under-15s overcame Loughton in fine style.

Ascot 3 Upney Tigers 3
UPNEY Tigers' title push took a blow as they squandered a 3-0 lead against an organised Ascot.
Upney had chance after chance without scoring, before a corner from Ben Cox found captain Dean Puddick who powerfully headed home.
Upney took control and Jay Simmons netted twice but Upney's defence fell asleep and paid the price.
Upney Tigers: Puddick, Newall, Moorton, Gammaldi, Collins, Barclay, Chapman, Bundock, Cox, Baker, Simmons, Wallace.
Prostar 1 Dagenham United 1
A FAST and furious game resulted in some good football being played and a point for Dagenham United under-12s.
Both sides displayed passion and a draw was a fair result. Dagenham's goalscorer was Charlie Herring and man of the match was Bradley Retter.
Dagenham United: Herring, Retter, Murphy, Ling, Meleady, Hazell, McGlynn, Adeshina, Weller, Farley, Sendeke, Duncan, Akinkule, Mohamed, Endean-Coyle.
Jays 3 East Thurrock 3
(Jays won 3-1 on pens)
A COMPLETE team performance from Jays under-11s saw them come back from what seemed a lost cause to win the Echo Cup on penalties.
After going 3-1 down the game seemed all but over, but Jays had other ideas and could have gone on to win in normal time after a hat-trick from man of the match Ernestas Allionis. Extra-time could not separate the teams which led to the nail-biting lottery of a penalty shoot-out.
Jays goalkeeper Charlie Kelleher made himself big and stood firm to save two kicks and Alex Bray scored an emphatic penalty to win it for Jays.
Jays: Kelleher, Unwin, Maycey, Allionis, Huber, Bray, Pryce, M Brown, K Brown, Parsons, Mcknight, Sleight, Ogunseitan, Mburn.
Buckhurst Hill 1
Dagenham United 7
DAGENHAM UNITED under-11s steamrollered Buckhurst Hill in style.
Dagenham only led 2-1 at the break with goals from Olly Houghton and man of the match Joe Belcher, but the second half saw the team wake up.
Strikes from Sidu Odelusi and Ian Bartlett as well as a great hat-trick from Josh Brett put the game out of reach.
Dagenham United: Grey, Meekcoms, Anness, Belcher, Turner, Bartlett, Pitkin, Lloyd-Reshan, Houghton, Odelusi, Waites, Philips, Lawrence, Brett.
