BECKY Turner saw off Bassingbourn Youth and shot Hormead Hares Girls under-13s to victory with a last-minute winner.

However, it was the hosts who took the lead early on, only for Daisy Holmes to grab a Hormead equaliser just before half time.

Then after a stirring second half performance Hormead sneaked a winner with Turner finding the target with a well-taken strike.

Hormead Hares under-16s powered home with an impressive 5-1 win over Hertford Town. Jack Clark Ward grabbed a deserved hat-trick, while Daniel Banks-Smith and Callum Scowen's excellent finishes completed the rout.

In an entertaining game, Hormead Hares under-8s A bounced back from three goals behind to see off Bassingbourn 6-3.

Showing great character and resilience the Hares hit back with four goals in 11 minutes, before they grabbed two more second half strikes. Sheldon Best nabbed a hat-trick while Chrissie Georgiou took the man-of-the-match award after a magnificent display in defence.

A comeback was also required for the Hormead Hares under-8s B as they came from behind twice in their 2-2 draw with Bassingbourn.

And Hormead Hares under-11s carried on their fine form with an 8-1 drubbing of Arlesey. The Hares were 7-1 up at half time thanks to Alex Underwood's hat-trick and Rhodri Hughes and Hugh Wrigley doubles. Danny Elford scored the only goal of the second half.

Despite playing well Hormead Hares under-13s were undone against league leaders Ware Lions and went down 3-1. Ware took the lead with a first-half strike, before adding two more in quick succession after the re-start. Charlie Ball pulled one back for Hormead with a calm close-range finish.

Hormead Hares under-9s Blacks battled for a credible 0-0 draw with FC Comets. The result was helped by Callum Edwards' goal line clearance, with keeper Max Kerr also in fine form.

At the other end, player-of-the-match Owen Hughes came close but saw his effort go just wide.

And it was bad news for Hormead Hares under-9s Oranges as they let a three goal lead slip, with FC Comets B coming back to win 4-3.

The Oranges were sailing, thanks to two Harry Jarman strikes and Elliott Rowe's first for the club. But their opponents hit back with a flurry of second-half goals, including a last minute winner.
