Youth league games yield goals a plenty

Several teams recorded flattering victory margins as the Barclays ISF Youth Football League completed its ninth week of competition at the National Institute of Physical Education and Sports on Sunday.

The Boys U14 and U10 sections were virtually overflowing with goals, with the winners and losers accounting for close to 170 goals.

The Blue Flag set the trend with a 20-3 thrashing of Appleton Wildcats 2’s in the Boys U14 Premier category. There was no dearth of goals in the other four matches as well.

The Wildcats first unit, however, struck a winning note, beating Hagar 5-3. The Flying Tigers were all over Tonle Sap Teddybears in their 17-6 win while Flying Dragons put out Sunshine 8-4 and Scherinin demolished Pun Phnom School 14-1In the U10 section, The Seasiders’ plight was somewhat similar to the Wildcats’. ASPECA were merciless in their 20-2 drubbing of The Seasiders 2’s, even as the Seasiders 1’s left the ground with smiles on their faces after prevailing 9-6 over Sunrise.

In other matches, Hagar beat MJB 10-7 and The Cavalry charged home to a 17-1 win over Flying Tigers. It was bitter-sweet for Robas Rangers. While the Rangers first team beat Blue Eagles 10-7, Rangers second string went down, ironically, 10-7 to Covehead Gunners.

Girls U14 Group A results saw Chak Kropop Po Mongkol beat FABBA’s Tigers 9-2 and GXD Larrikins edge Super Sonics 3-2.

Meanwhile in Group B, Taylormade overcame Ruby Murray’s Ladies 6-3, while Blue Dragons routed Northbridge Nomads 8-2.

In Girls U18 games, ASPECA bested The Blue Eagles 1-0, and A New Day Cambodia won 4-1 over Flying Tigers.
