Melbourn Dynamos Panthers U12s were unfortunate to go down 8-4 away to Baldock Templars.

Templars took the lead after 15 minutes through an own goal after Melbourn lost possession on the edge of their own area.

Within a minute Panthers equalised after a teasing right-wing cross from Josh Hutton rebounded into the path of Luke Eades to grab his second goal of the season.

Templers continued to make the most of the downhill advantage and took the lead again after 20 minutes with glancing header from a corner before furthering their advantage shortly after half time.

Templars scored two more goals to make it 5-1 but, to their credit, Melbourn never gave up and reduced the deficit through a dipping shot from Storey. And a few minutes later it was 5-3 when Lees scored a fine header.
