Leys Park 3
LEYS PARK under-17s recorded a dramatic win over May & Baker in an exciting game.
Baker's took a 2-0 lead but, stunned into action, Leys hit back with three goals to snatch victory.
First, Russell Hardy netted, before an own goal brought Leys parity and within sight of a memorable win. That was ensured by Maulkerson, who powered home a wonderful goal.
Leys Park: T Peacham, Roper, D Peacham, Maulkerson, Potts, Stacey, Murphy, Hardy, Hammond, Whitham, Jago, Olodo, Young, Mendbayar.
Barking Colts 0 Ryan 8
BRAVE Barking Colts under-15s were beaten by league leaders Ryan but left with their heads held high.
Colts were ravaged by illness which meant that they could only play with eight fit players, but Callum Hill was in fine form.
Captain Ryan Harvey was forced to play in goal and he made outstanding saves, while Joshua Whincup and George Brown both went close for Barking.
Their spirit could not hold out in the second half though, and Leon Turrell, Tom Wiltshire, Ryan Bussey and Paul Barlow were all a credit to the game.
Barking Colts: Harvey, George, Brown, Turrell, Wiltshire, Barlow, Hill, Whinchup, Bussey.
Prostar 3 Cobra 4
COBRA under-13s went top of the league after winning a dramatic clash with Prostar despite having a man sent off.
After falling a goal down, Cobra fought back to level via a Staines strike and another two goals from him gave him his hat-trick and his team a comfortable lead, until Prostar scored twice to even the scores.
Staines, however, secured the win for Cobra with his fourth goal and in the process fired them to the top of the league.
Cobra: Burke, Helps, Cash, Berrecloth, Lawrence, Pickett, Newlyn, Staines, Saffa, Nelson, Chivuge, Owen, Ayers, Kuria, Cater, Baldry.
Valence United 6
Harold Hill 0
VALENCE UNITED under-12s crushed Harold Hill in sizzling fashion.
Remi Awosanya hit his second hat-trick in a week as Valence swept forward, a brace from Joel Mensah and a fine strike from Daniel Shobande sealed victory.
Valence United: Heard, Smith, Hodgson, Adebayo, Hand, Shobande, Abiola, Okus, Duckett, Mensah, Awosanya, Adecoya.
Ryan 5 Euro Dagenham 2
EURO Dagenham under-11s could not find the form they displayed the first time they met Ryan and went down to a crushing defeat.
Euro started the game poorly and found themselves 4-0 down at half time before goals from Jehow and Everitt salvaged some pride. Man of the match went to Tahiri.
Euro Dagenham: Conroy, Dobson, A Everitt, J Everitt, Graham, Hussain, Imbert-Thomas, Jehow, C Mcnicholas, D Mcnicholas, Olagbaju, Tahiri, Wheatley.
