St Albans Rangers thrash league leaders
11:10am Friday 15th March 2013 in Local Sport
St Albans Rangers Under-10 Reds produced an outstanding team display to thrash league leaders Omonia 6-2 and close to within three points of them with games in hand.
A really bright start saw Flynn O’Callaghan grab a quickfire hat-trick to go 3-0 up. Omonia came back strongly though with two well-worked goals to make it 3-2 at the break.
Rangers dominated the second period with further goals from Matt Mooney, Ronnie Rowland and David Emiloju. Captain Harry Catterick won man-of-the-match.
Rangers Under-9 Reds returned to Harperbury and faced higher league opposition in their first Spring Shield match against Harvesters South.
Both teams worked hard to keep the game even before Bayley Shipp scored to put the home team ahead.
Rangers defended well to hold off the equaliser South were searching for before Oscar Reeves scored through a crowded box to secure the win for Rangers. Tom Every was the pick of their side with excellent movement off the ball.
Rangers Under-10s Blue were very unlucky to lose to Hadley Rangers in the Spring Trophy. A plucky Rangers side came back from 4-1 down to finally lose 4-3 but were unlucky not to take anything from the game.
A brace from Oscar Drury and a goal from Harrison Shipp made the last few moment tense for the away team. Lewis Horden was the man-of-the-match after a solid defensive performance.
The Under-13s lost 3-2 in a feisty local derby against Borehamwood 2000.
Omar Bounyafe and Reece Bilsby scored but couldn’t get an equaliser.
Rangers Under-16 Reds striker Will Kilpatrick’s brace helped them beat St Albans City North 5-2 in the Spring Cup.
The other scorers were Sonny Disspain, Brendon Katurura and Callum Moriarty with a penalty.
