Garston Ladies Under-11 Mets extend unbeaten run to three seasons in title success
6:46pm Thursday 2nd May 2013 in Sport
Garston Ladies Under-11 Mets were crowned Hertfordshire Girls League champions following two convincing victories in their double-header against title rivals Hampstead on Saturday.
The girls only needed one point to secure the title but did it in style, winning 3-1 in the first game and 3-0 in the second.
A Libby Poster brace and a Raaya Thanki strike put the Mets into a comfortable lead in the first game and although Hampstead pulled one back, the result was never really in any doubt.
The second match followed much the same pattern and featured an outstanding headed goal from Thanki. She then grabbed her third of the afternoon before Abbie Lafayette wrapped things up with a fine solo effort.
The Mets have now gone three whole seasons without defeat and still have the chance for more silverware this year with two cup finals to come in May.
The Under-11 Diamonds welcomed Harpenden Colts to the Met Police Club and went ahead thanks to Catriona Condon’s first goal of the season.
But the girls failed to hold onto the lead and ended up going down to a 2-1 defeat.
Garston’s Under-15 Mets took on Bedwell Rangers in a double-header but were unable to pick up the two wins they needed to keep their title hopes alive.
The first game ended in a 0-0 draw, while Clarisse Patel’s goal gave the Mets a deserved win in the second match.
The Under-15 Diamonds took the lead against Hampstead - Karina Hastie volleying home from distance - but were unable to hold onto the lead and an unfortunate own goal gave Hampstead the draw.
Jade Roberts was on top form for Garston’s Under-15 Sharks, scoring all four goals in a 4-0 victory over Bury Rangers Whites, while the Under-18s finished their league season with a 2-2 draw at home to Hampstead.
After going behind to an early Hampstead goal, Lily Commins brought the scores level only for Hampstead to regain the lead before half-time.
Garston battled back after the break and got their reward when Lizzie Smith converted from the penalty spot.
