Our U12's & U14's are through to the quarter-finals of the London Girls Cup whilst our U16s suffered a narrow defeat
Charlton U14's 4 Tottenham U13's 0
We entertained Tottenham at Coldharbour Sports Ground on Saturday morning and had to revert to 9-a-side for this cup competition.
It took us a little while to settle to a different formation and a smaller pitch but we soon started to dominate the game.
We oped the scoring after 22 minutes when Grace Whitelock threaded a balll through to Leah Saunders who saw her first shot saved by the keeper before firing home the rebound.
Tottenham came within inches of levelling the score before the break as a long range effort hit the upright.
We started the second-half strongly and their keeper made a great save tipping Lou Hembrough's free-kick wide.
With 55 minutes gone player of the match Beth Bunker made a great run from midfield and set up Bea Hembrough who shot just inside the far post.
Another goal came soon after as Jessica Healy-Regler's cross was controlled by Bea Hembrough who set up Beth Bunker to fire home goal number three.
Jessica Healy-Regler then wrapped up the scoring when she met Lucy Kerr's left wing cross to fire home from 6 yards.
In the quarter-finals due to be played in February we have been drawn at home to Hampstead
S&T Academy U16's 1 Charlton U16's 0
On Sunday morning in a physical encounter we went out of the cup by the only goal of the game.
We dominated much of the possession and created numerous chances but just could not find the back of the net.
LOASS U12's 1 Charlton U12's 7
A Sunday 12 noon kick-off meant manager Megen Lynch could not be there due to 1st team commitments so injured 1st team player & qualified coach Kristina Manktelow took charge of the team.
We played some great passing football and found our goalscoring touch with Tayla Williams bagging 5 goals. Our other goals came from Faith Jones and Lucy Pennington.
In the quarter-finals due to be played in February we have been drawn at home to Alexandra Park
