Olympian League Review
Herts Sunday Junior Cup Round One
Cassiobury Revolution are the only Olympian team through to the next round after a 2-0 home win over Sandon FC.
The home side took control of the game from the start and went in front midway through the first half when Chris Massey found Darren O'Brien, who took one touch to control and a second to slide the ball home.
Sandon played some good football but were unable to break through and were caught on the counter-attack when Lewis Clay played a ball through the defence to the on-rushing Massey to secure the win.
Two other sides, Oxhey Park and WD Athletic , went out after extra-time.
Oxhey lost by the odd goal in nine to Berkhamsted Athletic.
They led 3-2 thanks to a hat-trick from Shane Flynn until the sixth minute of added-on time when Berkhamsted scored an equaliser. Park took the lead again through Jay MacHugh in extra-time but two late goals in the second period put them out.
WD Athletic’s game against Camp KBK was goaless after the 90 minutes.
Despite a spirited performance, they ran out of steam in the extra 30 minutes, with Camp scoring three times without reply.
Both of the other games ended in 6-2 defeats, with Roundbush losing at home to The Ridge - Joe Sugden and Joe Girvan the men on target - while Ebury Olympians had to make the long trip to the village of Pelham close to the Essex border with just nine players. They gave a brave performance, with Dev Patel and Jason Quilley scoring the goals.

Shiva Kurup scored a goal in each half, with the others coming from Daryl Richardson, Ganero Venneri and a late srike from substitute Marc Brimble.
Old Danes Athletic's winning start to life in the top flight continued with a 4-0 victory over Reed Rangers .
Chris White got the ball rolling after stuborn early resistance from Reed and Joel Foskett then scored a second from the penalty spot.
In the second half, Ross Bennett and Rob Rossiter completed the scoring.
The clash between Woodside and Colne Valley ended in a 2-2 draw.
Paul Saunders scored twice to give Valley a 2-0 lead after 35 minutes. Woodside were then reduced to ten men but responded the better, with Drew Snailham netting twice before half-time, the equaliser coming from the penalty spot.
Valley controlled the majority of the second half but were unable to finish several good chances, although Woodside could have won the game at the death when Snailham saw his one-on-one chance tipped around the post by Valley keeper Dave Durbridge.
All three games in this division produced high-scoring affairs.

FC Aps twice lost a two-goal lead as they were held to a 3-3 draw by Inter .
Martin Clarke and Chris Cook put Aps two goals to the good at the break. Nathan Khider pulled one back in the second half, before an own goal restored the two-goal advantage.
Liam Watts reduced the deficit again before, in the last minute, a long cross from Khider was fumbled into his own net by the Aps keeper for the equaliser.
Johnny Armitt hit a double hat-trick as Brookside thumped Bushey Olympians 12-0.
James Blackwell, Barrie Horn, Matt Gee, Mehmet Shemmedi, Jordan Cocomazzi and an own goal completed the scoring.
