Euro Dagenham B 3 Barn Sports 1
EURO Dagenham under-14s maintained their place at the top of the table thanks to a crucial double strike from Gb-Dumaka in the second half.
Ferrol gave the hosts the best possible start when he slammed home the opening goal after 10 minutes but Barn responded well and equalised soon afterwards.
Euro were not to be swayed from their attacking mentality and they continued to take the game to their opponents, with midfielder Gb-Dumaka netting twice and Appiah being rock-solid in defence to help keep his side's two-goal advantage.
Euro Dagenham B: Amato, Flint, Postbeschild, Gb-Dumaka, Appiah, Stafford, Obi, Poopaj, Land, Brown, Haastrup, Ferrol, Sarki, Rexhepi, Fernandez.
Dagenham Knights 1 Upney Tigers 5
EVEN though they ran out 5-1 winners, Upney under-14s' dominance of Dagenham Knights was far greater than the scoreline suggested.
Tigers made a sluggish start though, conceding a sloppy early goal to Knights' Tim Doe, but once Sid Taylor had created and subsequently finished a move just before the break, the visitors were always in control.
The quality of their passing and movement was a joy to behold and it was Cameron Maxwell and Bradley Chapman who profited, grabbing a pair apiece, with Maxwell's turn, jink and shot being the pick of the goals.
Upney Tigers: Brightman, Brogan, Murray, Fluck, Rowan, Cooley, Taylor, Levett, Moore, Chapman, Cruikshank, Maxwell, Hall, Crane, Wise, Williams.
Bardag 6 Redbridge B 5
BARDAG under-14s prov-ided further evidence of their doggedness as they battled back from 4-1 down to eventually beat Redbridge B.
The visitors went ahead early and after Shaun Gordon had briefly levelled things up, Redbridge netted three without reply to stun their hosts into action.
Daniel Alele reduced the deficit after the interval, Kevin Bokanga kept his cool from the penalty spot and then Bardag were back on terms when Alele grabbed his second.
The striker was in super form and duly completed his hat-trick with a fine header to finish off a sweeping move and once Rezi Useh netted number six for Bardag the points were in the bag, with James Downes being voted man of the match.
