ON a beautiful sunny morning, Knebworth Youth under-10 Cheetahs Yellows travelled to an in-form and unbeaten Buntingford Cougars at The Bury.
In a close first half, the Cheetahs took the lead when Ewan Fewell converted from close range after good work by Taylor Wilson which had forced a save from the keeper.

In the second period the visitors took control of the game and a clever chest and pass from Ryan Manson set up Wilson to score from an acute angle.
A beautiful passing move involving Wilson, Manson and Fewell ended with the latter scoring his second and Knebworth's third but the goal of the game was a wonderfully crafted effort that was built down the left-hand side by Fewell and Robson Moss before a pass found Manson on the edge of the box and he smashed it home for 4-0.

THE weekend saw a great game between two strong teams who should both be fighting at the top of the division come the end of the season.
Knebworth almost scored from kick-off with a sweet passing move that drew a good save from the Cougars 'keeper.
Further efforts from Charlie Unwin, Harry Isherwood and Mitchell Rogers were all saved as the home 'keeper kept the Cougars in the game with a fantastic performance but the pressure finally told as Rogers followed up his own saved effort to beat the rebound and a half-time lead.
The second half saw Joshua Allen create a chance for Unwin and he made no mistake with his weaker right foot for a 2-0 cushion.
Still the Buntingford 'keeper produced save after save to keep the score down as Rogers and Archie Garrett saw chances kept out.
At the other end Callum Cook had to make a double save bravely at the feet of a Cougars striker to maintain the lead.
Travis Hambleton also cleared another shot off of the line as both teams pressed forward in search of goals.
Another flowing move involving Unwin, Allen and Isherwood saw the latter have his shot well saved and Buntingford were rewarded for their persistence when an own goal reduced the score towards the end.
A good solid Knebworth team performance but man-of-the-match was Hambleton in an unfamiliar defensive role.
