Mekong Rangers defeated Kew Park Rangers 5-1 on Sunday in their Boys U14 Premier League game of the IndoChina Starfish Foundation-Barclays Youth Football League at the National Institute of Physical Education and Sports Grounds.

Juice Master United forced The Blue Flag to wave a white flag of surrender after a 4-1 victory, while New Hope clipped the wings of the Flying Tigers with a 6-2 win. Cains Advocates failed to win their case against Malu Lions, the teams sharing the spoils in a 2-2 draw.

Meanwhile, The Seasiders found themselves on the winning side of two U10 Boys section matches in differing fashion. While the Seasiders’ second string were pinning the Cains Advocates against the wall in a 14-2 rout, the first team had to fight tooth and claw against the Malu Lions before eking out a 6-5 win.

A brave fightback by Hagar CLC was not good enough to prevent The Flying Tigers from winning 7-4 in the third fixture of the day.

Northbridge Nomads kept finding the net at regular intervals to complete a 6-1 win over Ruby Murray’s Ladies in the U14 Girls category. The loudest local cheer was reserved for Chak Kropop Po Monkol, who prevailed 4-2 over the Flying Tigers.

In the other two matches, Sunrise blanked Super Sonics 7-0 while the SocceRoos managed to squeeze out the closest win of the round against CS Larrikins by the odd goal in five.
