Revenge was swift for Worcester City Youth when its Under 18 Girls team won 5-1 at Stratford Town on Saturday.
The comprehensive victory followed a 2-4 defeat for their male counterparts less than 48 hours previously in the Floodlit League Cup despite a 2-1 half-time lead given to them by Joel Owusu and Tom Allen plus a tremendous goalkeeping display by Sean Dayus.
In the JPL Elite League, two City sides clocked up the miles and chalked up wins. The Under 14s claimed their first win in the competition with a 4-2 success at Grantham Town, whilst the Under 15s kept a second successive clean sheet as they won 2-0 at RTC North Somerset in Clevedon.
After netting 11 times the previous week, the Under 12s went one better versus Kidderminster Harriers as they ran out 12-2 victors in another dominant performance.
Also in the goals were the Reserves who notched some spectacular strikes in a 6-0 triumph over Wyrley. Hassan Shah set the tone when he dribbled past five players to net the opener and then grabbed the second when he applied the finish to a superb team move.
Further first-half goals by Christos Gabriel and Jacob Keane were added to by Riley Keasey, who curled in a fifth from the edge of the box before thumping home a 20-yard drive to put the icing on the cake.
After being comprehensively beaten by Hereford United earlier in the season, the Under 13s could so easily have come away with the points in their return fixture. They battled well but were left to rue several missed chances as Ed Bowers scored the only goal in a narrow 1-3 defeat.
The Under 10 Boys and Girls showcased their progress in challenging games against Kidderminster Harriers and West Hagley, whilst the Under 11s came up against the best side that they have faced so far this season in an entertaining match with Oxford Skills. In yet another close contest, the Under 16s drew 1-1 in their friendly with Stourport Swifts as Matty Patrick-Rivers was once again on the mark for City.
