FOR the first time in Buntingford Cougars' 36-year history, a Cougars side have been crowned Herts County Cup champions following the under-10 Blues' 2-1 victory over Broxbourne Rangers Youth Reds.
At The County Ground, Letchworth, in front of a large crowd, it was the Cougars who made the brighter start, pushing hard with Charlie Owen almost opening the scoring.
Broxbourne were denied by impressive defending from Louie Debnam and Conner Bridge, but took the lead when a cross was deflected past his own keeper by Harry Andic.
In the second half, Cougars were thwarted by a number of good saves from Rangers keeper Marco Tuzzeo.

But they equalised with a well-taken goal from Owen.
In extra time Cougars' Charlie Rome was unlucky not to edge his side in front when his clever strike was pushed away by player-of-the-match Tuzzeo.
