Cougars U8s Stripes vs BSC FC Youth City, Saturday 21st September Away

Taylor, Fathers, Tansley, Chaplin, Harvey, Lucas, Russell

The Stripes faced an unusual afternoon away game in beautiful sunshine at Bishops Stortford this week.

In a continuation of last weeks strong performances all the Cougars players performed admirably against a speedy and determined Bishops Stortford side.

Goals came from Fathers (3), Tansley (2), Harvey

Chaplin and Tansley gave disciplined performances in midfield making driving runs forward and pacy recovery runs to support a determined Taylor in the defense all ably assisted by Russell who did fine work in goal smothering numerous Stortford attacks and making some fine saves.

Lucas came on to make some purposeful runs in the second half to relieve pressure on his tiring teammates - notably putting his body on the line to block a clearance that fell kindly for a teammate to slot home.

Harvey and Fathers made the most of the larger spaces available on the u8 size pitch, repeatedly racing away to make numerous opportunities with the scoreline kept close by some lightning fast recovery running and quality goalkeeping from both sides.

Well done Stripes another fine performance.

Another fine bright day for the Buntingford Cougars Blues U10s today as they played Royston at 10:00am.

Both teams had a strong start and were evenly matched, despite the Cougars playing uphill and into the sun. Although the ball was in the opponents half for much of the first half, Cougars defence held up well.

The second half saw a change of Captain from Henry to Jonny and then back again, and Cougars score with an outstanding header from Sebastian.

Cougars remained strong throughout the second half with lots of near misses keeping Royston's goalie busy. A solid performance from Blake and fantastic shot from the half way line by Jonny very nearly provided Cougars another but it wasn't to be this time.

All Cougars players contributed well to the game and it was a pleasure to watch.
