THE Cougars' under- seven teams, who had not played a competitive match for two weeks, were unable to continue their high scoring ways, with defeats to Letchworth.
The under-seven first team lost 3-1, with a consolation strike courtesy of Luke Garratt, and the second team went down 2-0.
Cougars' under-12s fared better, beating Symonds Green 4-1.
Jonathan Bowell opened the scoring with a well-taken penalty, and then set up Danny Skipp for his first goal of the season, and Buntingford's second of the match.
Louis Ganellin also grabbed his first goal of the season before Lewis Fitzgerald completed the convincing win with a well-timed header from a Bowell corner.
The under-13 side played host to Stevenage Colts, but a string of missed chances meant they finished the game 2-1 losers.
