Bright Start For Leopards at Futures Cup

Futures Cup 2014 Day 1 Story Image
The Wessex Leopards enjoyed the brightest start of Day 1 of the Futures Cup, winning three of their four matches. The U18 girls caught the eye out of all the Leopards teams, putting six goals past Pennine Pumas with Frances Westenburg scoring two. Luke Cornish also bagged himself a brace in the Boys U18 as they also defeated the Pumas. 

Saxon Tigers also had a good start and lead the way in two of the four leagues. Tendo Kimuli was on fine scoring form for the Boys U18 as he scored two in his team’s 5-1 victory over last year’s winners Mercia Lynx. 

Pennine Pumas Girls U16 picked up where they left off at last year’s Futures Cup and secured a convincing win over Wessex Leopards. 

The Mercia Lynx Girls teams began with a 100% record as both defeated Saxon Tigers, with Erica Sanders scoring twice for the U18s. Another Lynx player also scored two, with Harry Bennett scoring both of his teams goals in a 3-2 defeat to Saxon Tigers.
