A WEAKENED under-11 Blues team were unlucky not to take a point from their visit to Bedwell Rangers, going down 3-2.
A wonder goal from Daniel Share and a second from James Hughes looked to have earned them a draw until the final when a strike from Rangers gave them the points.
The under-12s were unlucky on Sunday when they came up against a very strong Bishop's Stortford side and lost 5-0.
Cougars had quite a few shots at goal but could not make them count, but despite this they battled away right up until the final whistle.
The under-13 Whites were Cougars were left thinking of what could have been following a close game against Royston Celtic Greens.
A lacklustre start for Cougars prompted a stern half time speech from the managers. Going in 1-0 down Cougars needed a response.
In the second half that response was loud and clear and Cougars were pretty much in control.
Joe Pemberton got the equaliser and there were several more chances but the Celtic Keeper did well to keep the shots at bay.
Jake Peacock's goal was only a consolation for the under-15s as they were hammered 7-1 by Sawbridgeworth Town.
The under-eights won one and lost one on Saturday at Letchworth. The Blues struggled to create any clear cut chances despite having most of the possession and conceded a goal in each half losing, 2-0.
In contrast, the Whites were far too strong for Letchworth B and scored a goal in each half - the first a great strike from James Pooley and the second from Josh Godbert, his first of the season.
Jacob Pike kept Letchworth at bay in defence, and the increasingly impressive Dane Hyland showed great skill in midfield.
A disciplined performance saw the under-10s overtake league leaders Letchworth with a fine 4-1 win.
An excellent strike by George Ganellin cannoned in off Shane Dansie's head to open the scoring. Liam Price got a brace before Letchworth pulled one back. Daniel Howard led the team with persistent tackling in defence threading a ball through for Callum Faik to complete the victory.
The B team also won, 3-2, with Hugh Wrigley poaching the first goal for Cougars with a fine volley from a well taken corner.
Alex MacGregor scored from the left following a mazy run from the halfway line and Brandon Foster triumphed when he scored his first goal for Cougars. Letchworth never gave up and pulled two goals back but ran out of time.
