THE celebrations were put on hold for the under-14 Knights after they suffered their first defeat of the season, going down against Stotfold.
They never really got going as the home side raced into a four goal lead at half-time. Although play improved after the break, Stotfold added a fifth late in the game.
The under 10 Templars remain second in Division A despite being held to a 1-1 draw at Stevenage Borough Reds. Dean Brown was on target for Baldock.
The under 10 Crusaders need just one point from their last three games to be crowned Division B champions, after a Christopher Birkett goal gave them a 1-0 win over Stevenage Borough Thunder.
For the under 10 Knights and Lancers, both sides had mixed fortunes with goals Anthony Inverarity and Harry Waters giving the Knights a 2-1 win against Bishop's Stortford Athletic.

In the under 12 section, the Templars enhanced their championship hopes with a convincing 5-2 win over St Neots thanks to a Tom Gornall double and strikes from Anthony Geary, Bonham Harper and James Ward.
The under 13 Templars had a frustrating morning in their attempt to finish runners-up in Division One, after they were held to a goalless draw by Buntingford Cougars.
The Knights continued their impressive form and probably wish their season was just starting, after winning their ninth consecutive game with a 3-0 victory at Weston. George Laurence, Jordan Davis and Harry Nelson were all on target.

A Chris Hogg hat-trick and a Tom Lee brace helped give the under 15 Knights the points with a 5-3 victory over Bishop's Stortford Rangers.

The under 16 Crusaders paid the price for conceding two early goals in their encounter with Sandy. Josh Furness scrambled a reply before half-time, but Baldock were unable to find an equaliser despite their second-half pressure.
