Tigers Dominant at Futures Cup

Futures Cup 2014 Day 4 Story Image
The Saxon Tigers were victorious in both the Girls & Boys U18 competition as they ended the Futures Cup on a high. 

The Tigers Girls went into the final full of confidence after yesterday’s excellent second half performance which saw them snatch a place in the final from Leopards.  And they put Thursdays defeat against the Mercia Lynx behind them to once again come from behind to secure victory. Livvie Hopkinson’s early goal for the Lynx wasn't enough as a goal on the stroke of half time from Lucy Holder, followed by a second half goal from Kate Robinson won the cup for Tigers. 

In the Girls playoff for third place, the Pumas improved from their performance on the opening day but still came up against a strong Leopards side who took third place. Naomi Kelly scored twice in a 3-1 victory.

The Saxon Tigers Boys carried the dominance they’d shown in the pool stages into the final to defeat the Wessex Leopards 3-1. It was a much improved performance from the Leopards from the day before, but they were unable to overcome a strong Tiger’s team who scored a total of 18 goals in the tournament, conceded just three to become worthy winners.
Mercia Lynx gained their revenge on the Pennine Pumas from Saturday to finish on a high. Coming from a goal down, the Lynx put in a strong performance to defeat the Pumas 5-2.
