Futures Cup: Day 2 Round-Up

Futures Cup Day 2 1

The second day of the Futures Cup lived up to its hype after 41 goals were scored in a yet another thrilling day of hockey.

In the Under 18s competition, the Saxon Tigers boys bounced emphatically back from defeat on the opening day by beating Pennine Pumas 6-0. A standout hat-trick from Sam Barrett and strikes from Bill Cain (2) and Tom Crowson gave the Tigers a welcome boost heading into the weekend’s action.

The Wessex Leopards carried on their impressive form, narrowly beating the Mercia Lynx 4-3 in an exciting affair. A late goal from Ben Park was enough to secure the points for his side.

The Tigers also secured victory over the Pumas in the girls Under 18 competition, after finding the net seven times. Two goals from Emma McIntyre put the Tigers on their way to a 7-4 triumph.

The Lynx carried on their good form, beating the Leopards 1-0. A 31st minute strike from Jodie Beddow was enough to pick up another three points.

In the Under 16 boys competition, the Pumas beat the Tigers to win their first game thanks to goals from Sam Buckingham and Thomas Russell. However, a consolation goal from Archie Winter made the final score 2-1.

The Lynx overcame the Leopards 5-2. Two goals in the second half from Elliot Killington confirmed their win over the Leopards.

Futures Cup Day 2 2

The Pumas did not share the same fortune in the Under 16 girls competition, going down 3-0 to the Tigers. Goals from Alexandra Went, Robyn Bentley and Ellie Rattu ensured their side have won both group games.

The Lynx girls secured a close 2-1 victory over the Leopards to ensure they got their first win of the Futures Cup through goals from Abi Speight and Caroline Spence.

After a great opening two days to the Futures Cup, these young talents are sure to produce some more brilliant hockey over the weekend.
