Maidenhead B&G FC
Maidenhead u12s Panthers produced a much improved performance to clip the wings of AFC Henley Hawks 5-2 on Saturday.
Billy O’Brien got on the end of a Harry McGill cross to put them ahead before Callum Neeson-Roberts netted from a Will Howarth corner to make it 2-0 in the 18th minute. Henley's tails were back up after Maids conceded a soft goal early in the second half, however, McGill lashed home a shot to restore the two-goal advantage. Patrick Spiers then fired in from a rebound to get his first goal for the club and a second for McGill, after a strong run, completed their scoring.
Megan Harper netted four goals as Maidenhead Girls improved on their rusty first half performance to beat Goring Robins 5-4 in this u15s Division 1 clash. Maids fell behind in the early stages but another hat-trick for Harper ensured they went into the interval with a 3-2 advantage.
Defensively Maids were much improved after the break and some lovely flowing counter-attacks led to them scoring twice more, through Harper and Amelia Gilbert. However, Goring gave as good as they got, scoring twice more to keep things interesting until the final whistle. Harper was named player-of-the-match for her four-goal salvo and determined defending in the final minutes.
Maidenhead u12s Vipers conceded early in the second half as they lost an even match 1-0 to Reeve Rangers Hoops in Division 4.
Elsewhere the u18s Anacondas beat Barton Rovers Royals 2-0 at home, the u15s Boys were 1-0 winners against Henley's Hurricanes and the u14s Cobras beat Pinewood Panthers 5-3 in an eight-goal thriller.
FC Cippenham Sharks came from behind to beat RedKore 2-1 in a well contested u11s Development Trophy final on Saturday.
The highly entertaining final was in doubt until the final whistle, after RedKore stunned the Sharks by scoring with their very first attack.
However, after gradually gaining a measure of control in midfield, Cippenham came back into the contest. Mackenzie Sear's well struck drive was saved by the RedKore keeper, but the Sharks continued to circle before striking an equaliser through James Jasinski.
An open second half saw both sides get chances to score, but it was Sears who bagged the winner with a clinical finish.
The scales were tipped in Maidenhead Warriors favour in the second half, as they beat Boyne Hill Bullets 5-2 in the u10s league.
Yusuf Ali and Toby Wheeler were on target for Warriors in a finely balanced first half, but two second half goals without answer from Warriors, the second of them from Lucas Dolphin, took the game away from the Bullets.
A Freddie Hibbert free-kick earned FC Cippenham Wolves the points from a 2-1 win over Burnham Junior Leopards Blue.
Burnham made a bright start and took the lead inside 10 minutes, but Cippenham regrouped after half-time and levelled matters through Zack Mason. They clattered the crossbar with a thunderous shot but wouldn't be denied as Hibbert swept home the winner after Aaron Whitehead was brought down just outside the box.
In the u13s league FC Cippenham Rhinos stormed to a 5-0 win over Golden Eagles while Windsor Royals Youth drew 3-3 with Slough Town Juniors.
