Injury-hit Watford FC Girls Under-18 triumphed against the odds to beat Edgware Town Ladies 4-2 on Sunday and move within two points of the leaders in their Greater London Women’s Football League division.

The Hornets were up against it from the start with only 10 players available but having fallen behind twice in the first half, they battled back after the break to win thanks to a brace apiece from Maggie Bristow and Nieve Buckley.

The Under-9 Yellows had made the short trip to play Garston Pumas the previous day and had Kimberley Ortiz and Evie Rose on target with a hat-trick each.

The Under-10s were also in Garston and Vedhika Walia was at the forefront of a fine team performance with four goals. Elsa Walker added a hat-trick, with Verity Richman (2), Chase Bembridge (2), Elisha Price and Jamaica Ogilvie-Charlesworth completing the scoring.

The Under-11s played host to Bedwell Rangers Dragons at Sun Postal. Solange Brellier hit a brace for the home side, with Kiahna Atkins, Sienna Greener, Zara Labastide, Sarah Zaoui, Ugomma Ekendu-Obi and Erin O’Connor also scoring in another impressive team display.

The points were shared in a 3-3 draw in the top-of-the-table clash between Watford Under-12s and Berkhamsted Raiders Youth Reds. Victoria Lussambo scored a brace and Sundai Amele added a single for the Hornets.

The Under-13 Girls also played out a draw at home, 1-1 against Herts Girls Red, with Olivia Brock coming off the bench to score Watford’s only goal.

The Under-14s enjoyed a successful trip to Tottenham Hotspur Ladies Blues, winning 5-1 thanks to a brace apiece from Charlotte Foster and Lucie Kirby and Millie Tugby’s sole effort.

Edie Sunman and an own goal had put the Under-15s on top at Berkhamsted Raiders Youth Reds, but Watford had to hang on for a 2-1 victory after the home side had pulled one goal back early in the second half and were the better side thereafter.
