It was a successful weekend for Watford FC Girls, with some high-scoring action in the child-friendly section of the Herts Girls Partnership League and plenty of league and cup success in the older age groups

All the defensive work from the Under-9's coaches in training went completely out the window as the Greens and Yellows once again locked horns.

The parents were treated to a goal frenzy from both sides with Isabella Millar (3), Evie Rose (2), Drew Brady (2), Amelia Mariappa (2), Amelia Baskiewicz (2), Olive Mitchell and Daisy-May Bird all finding the net.

There were hat-tricks for both Elsa Walker and Jamaica Ogilvie-Charlesworth in the Under-10’s fixture against St Albans Central. Vedhika Walia struck a double and there were goals also for Chase Bembridge, Verity Richman, Elisha Price and Charlotte Grosso.

Solange Brellier scored three times and Zara Labastide and Sophie Birkett also netted as the Under-11s entertained Hitchin Belles.

Lola Ogundere, Lauren Reeves and Victoria Lussambo held their nerve as the Under-12s beat Tottenham Hotspur Ladies on penalties in the HGFPL League Cup.

Lussambo had earlier given the Golden Girls the lead, but the two teams could not be separated as the tie finished 1-1 after extra-time.

Watford’s Under-13s became the second of the club’s sides to reach a Herts Cup final as a Maddi Armstrong goal was enough to secure a 1-0 triumph at Garston Ladies Wildcats.

Charlotte Foster led the way with a brace as the Under-14s won 5-2 at Kinja Youth.

Grace Craven, Lucie Kirby and Erin Shacklock were also on target to keep the Hornets one point clear at the summit and with a game in hand on second-placed Pro Direct Enfield.

Another tight League Cup match saw Aulona Xhema’s goal sufficient for the Under-15s to win 1-0 at Tottenham.

Age proved no barrier for the Under-16s as they hosted Crystal Palace Under-18s in a friendly on Sunday.

Charli O’Connor scored twice and there were individual strikes for Ceri Milnes, Amy Holdcroft, Hilly Reid and Leah Knapp in a 6-2 victory.

The Under-18s finally managed to break down a resistant Hackney Women Reserves defence as goals form Tiarna Reid and substitute Chloe Fletcher secured a 2-1 win.
