SUNDAY proved to be a perfect day for the Hares as they won all five games.
The under-15s were involved in a seven goal thriller against Royston Town Colts, running out 4-3 winners in a very physical, but entertaining game.
Goals from Sam Benjamin, Dave Turner, Callum Scowen, and the winner, with a 60-yard run and fine finish from Daniel Banks-Smith, got the Hares off to a great start.
The under-11s, playing their first 11-a-side game, started where they left off last season with an emphatic 6-0 away win over Melbourn Dynamo Tigers.
Ewan Edwards hit a great hat-trick, with a goal apiece from Luke Barker, Louis Morton and a goal on his debut for the club from Liam Doonan.
Win of the day though, goes to the under-12s who put on a superb display to beat rivals Buntingford Cougar Whites 11-0.
Jordan Scowen led the way with a hat-trick, with Louis Kugler, Jonathon Ilett and Ryan Thurgood all hitting a brace, plus further strikes from Sammy Radley and James Kaye.
The under-12s put in a great performance against Letchworth winning 5-0 with goals from Adam Purvis, George Congrave, Scott Adamson and a pair from Jack Penney, while the under-16s were commanding in their 6-2 win against Weston.
Hares under-13 girls were missing a couple of players in their first ever 11-a-side game as well on Saturday, and apart from the final five minutes were always in contention against a strong Royston Town Colts side.
A great team goal was finished off well by Becky Turner and a neatly dispatched penalty from Hope Bayford-Smith got Hares back to 3-2.
But as they tired in the last five minutes Colts were gifted a further two goals with the score finishing 5-2 to Colts.
Also on Saturday, the under-sevens were unlucky to lose 1-0 in both games against Buntingford Cougars in their first ever outing after going close on a number of occasions.
