BASSINGBOURN'S two under-10 teams slipped to defeats against BSCFC, both going down 4-1 away from home.

Against a tough-tackling Bishop's Stortford-based side, Bassingbourn kept the score level in this Division C fixture with keeper Becan Davies in fine form.

And it was the visitors who took the lead, when Evan Goldman slotted home after taking advantage of some hesitant BSCFC defending.

However, the home side soon equalised with the Knights' defence failing to clear the ball, and a BSCFC striker poked the ball into the net.

Despite some resolute defending from Harry Vines and Charlie Colling, the home side went in front just before half-time, when a deflected shot found its way past Davies.

After the break BSCFC continued the pressure and increased their lead when another deflected strike made its way past a helpless Davies.

BSCFC added a fourth late on with a Bassingbourn defender knocking the ball over the line.

In Division D, despite what the scoreline suggested, Bassingbourn Daze played some good football and gave their stronger BSCFC opponents a tough game.

Two quick goals gave the home side the advantage, though Bassingbourn's Nicholas Partridge, Tom Needham and captain Jonathan Marriage went close.

BSCFC added a third just before half time to deflate Daze's hopes.

But Daze got a reward when Needham's pressure forced a BSCFC defender to knock the ball past his own keeper.

However, despite the best efforts of Alice Gumble and Edward Kelly, BSCFC added a fourth before the final whistle.
