Under-11 Herts County Cup, First Round

FRESH from their 7-1 win at Sawbridgeworth last week, the Lions went into their County Cup game with Hemel Aces in good heart.

They were 2-0 up within a couple of minutes as first Jack Marshall and then Ned Ford scored.

Some superb passing continued to open the opposition's defence allowing Marshall to score his second before Dominic and then Keenan McDermott made the score 5-0 at half time.

Knebworth rung the changes throughout the game to give everyone a run out, and although Hemel did come back into the game more in the second half the result was never in doubt as further strikes from Alex and Dan Hill added to Dominic's second goal.

Overall the result was satisfying and only team is only seven games away from silverware.
