THE under-12 Templars became the club's first team to reach their League Cup final this season after a tremendous semi final victory at Bishop's Stortford. The home side started the game as clear favourites but goals from Dean Laing and Alex Canter booked the Templars place in the final against either Fairlands or Letchworth with a 2-1 victory. Both the under-10 Templars and Crusaders were beaten by Bishop's Stortford. The Templars went down by 4-0, while both Elena Pisapia and Connor Doyle were on target for the Crusaders in their 4-2 defeat. There was better fortune for the Knights who gained a victory over Stevenage Borough Blues thanks to a single Jack Court goal. In Division Four of the under-11s, a Conor Clarke goal helped the Knights gain a point in a 1-1 draw against Stansted. In the under-12 Division Three, the Knights were beaten 4-1 at Letchworth Garden City Eagles Yellows despite a George Laurence goal. A Steven Scarlino hat-trick was not enough to bring the under-12 Lancers any reward, as they were defeated 6-3 at Royston Celtic. The under-13 Templars just failed to make it through to the last four of their League Cup, after being beaten 2-1 by Wymondley Park. Alex Baker was on target for the homme side. In Division Three, the under-13 Crusaders maintained their excellent end of season form by collecting another three points against Hormead Hares. Top scorer Callum Bishop was on target twice while Reece Glasgow and Charlie Cree also got their names on the score sheet as the Crusaders ran out comfortable 4-0 winners. The under-13 Knights picked up andexcellent point against a Wymondley Park Wanderers side which went into the match needing a win to secure the Division Four title. Knights were not in a generous mood however, and defended stoutly throughout the match to frustrate the home side and at the final whistle the game remained goalless. The under-14 Knights hopes of landing the Division One title took a knock in a double header against Stevenage Borough Blues. A single goal gave the Blues the points in the first match, while in the second neither team could find the net and each had to settle for a point in a goalless encounter. It was a disappointing day for both under-15 sides in action. A David Beedell goal was not enough to bring the Templars any reward, as they were defeated 2-1 at Potton, while the Crusaders were beaten 6-3 at Symonds Green, with the visitors goals coming from Richard Nicholls, James King and James Whenman. A James Smith goal helped the under-16 Templars to a 1-1 draw against Bishop's Stortford Northolt in their Division One clash. The under-17 Crusaders gained ample revenge for an early season 5-0 defeat at Sawbridgeworth, as they produced their best performance of the season. In a pulsating first half an hour the home side raced into a four-goal lead with two goals each coming from Harry Holland and Ross Cook. The Crusaders then comfortable repelled any hopes Sawbridgeworth had of getting back into the game to take the points with a 4-0 victory.
