Garston Ladies romp to Stevenage win
10:54am Thursday 11th October 2012 in Sport
Garston Ladies Under-10s cruised to a 7-0 win over Stevenage in the League Cup.
Paige Andrews netted a hat-trick while there was a brace from Beth Chambers and goals from Claudia Bulow and Ella Jennings. The Under-11 Mets also progressed to the second round of the competition. The holders eased to a 5-0 win over Harvesters. Abbie Lafayette (2), Raaya Thanki, Megan Allaway and Nicole Brimble were the goalscorers in a one-sided contest.
The Under-11 Diamonds found the going much tougher against First Division Bury Rangers and went down to a disappointing 7-0 defeat.
It was a game of two halves for Garston’s Under-12s as they welcomed local rivals Watford Ladies to the Met Police Club.
Garston took the lead early on thanks to a Tegan Davis shot from the edge of the box only for the visitors to equalise. Davis soon made it 2-1 to Garston with another piledriver. The game was turned on its head after the break as Watford fought back and notched three more goals to seal a 4-2 victory.
Garston Under-13s went goal crazy at The Met with a stunning 9-0 win over Harpenden Colts. Ellie Fitzgibbons and Molly McGuane netted braces and strikes from Casey Bunker, Katy Porter, Charli Dormer, Ellie Stringer and Jade Ralph completed the scoring.
There were also goals aplenty as two of Garston’s Under-15 teams met each other in the league. The Mets came out on top in an 8-0 victory against the Diamonds.
The game was much closer than the scoreline would suggest but clinical finishing won the day with a Lauren Berryman hat-trick, two each from new signings Rachel Rabin, and Lauren McKenzie and one from Clarisse Patel.
The Under-15 Sharks played out a remarkable game against Hemel Hempstead as they lost 8-6 after extra time in the League Cup. Five goals from Jade Roberts and a Megan Grace strike had taken the score to 6-6 at the end of normal time before Hemel edged through.
