THE under-10 Templars strengthened their hopes of finishing Division A runners-up after two goals from leading scorer Charlie Briggs was enough to earn a 2-1 win over third placed Bedwell Rangers.

The under-10 Crusaders recovered from last week's rare defeat to maintain a 12 point lead at the top of Division B as a Hayden Mabert goal gave them a 1-0 win over Bedwell B.

The under-10 Knights and Lancers both suffered defeats at the hands of Shefford Saints. The Knights were defeated 3-0, while a Kier Boyd goal was the Lancers only consolation in a 6-1 defeat.

The under-12 Templars reached the semi-final of their league cup competition after goals from Joe Fraser-Bossom and Tom Gornall gave them a hard fought 2-1 win over Bedwell Rangers.

The under-12 Crusaders continued their winning streak to remain very much favourites for promotion from Division Three following their latest success at Letchworth GCE's. Toby Harvey, Iain Robinson and Robbie Wilcock were all on target as the Crusaders ran out 3-2 winners.

It was a disappointing day for the under-12 Knights as they finished on the wrong end of a 5-0 score line away to Bishop's Stortford.

The under-13 Templars and Knebworth shared the points as they fought out a goalless draw in their Division One match.

It was a good day for the under-13 Knights and Lancers who both picked up 2-0 away wins in their Division Four matches.

Goals from Ben Humberstone and Lee Rogers helped the Lancers return from Bishop's Stortford with all three points, while for the Knights, both Jordan Davis and Charan Basra were on target against Stevenage Colts.

The under-14 Templars suffered a disappointing 3-0 defeat at Bishop's Stortford Town, while the under-14 Knights took another giant step to the Division Four championship by demolishing Bishop's Stortford Rovers.

Jordan O'Neill opened the scoring for Baldock, and the Knights added two more goals through Axel Morris and Roshan Aujla to lead 3-0, before needlessly conceding a penalty to bring the visitors back into the game at 3-1.

The Knights dominated the second half and further goals from O'Neill and Aujla plus a first goal for the club from Glen Wales completed a 6-1 victory.

The under-15 Knights returned from New Hall Rangers with a point after holding their hosts to a goalless draw.

The under-16 Crusaders came back from a goal down at half time to beat local rivals Weston 2-1 with top scorer Josh Furness scoring both goals.

The under-18 Crusaders will be kicking themselves for not turning their domination into goals at Stevenage Colts, finally conceding the only goal of the game to give the Colts all three points.
