Some impressive performances from Worcester City Youth sides with two teams hitting double figures amidst some outstanding football across all of the age groups.
The Under 18 Girls defeated Coundon Court 10-0, whilst their male counterparts romped past Tuffley Rovers by 12-1 in the Midlands Floodlit League Cup. Hat-tricks for Hassan Shah, Joel Owusu and Christos Gabriel, a Riley Keasey brace and a further strike from Matty Patrick-Rivers doing the damage in an emphatic team display.
Despite being down to the bare bones in terms of squad numbers, the Under 15s beat Stoke RTC 4-1 in an entertaining clash at Perdiswell. A stunning free-kick by Dexter Dudley-Toole and acrobatic volley by Corbin Jarvis supplementing goals from Jack Fisher and Joe Rothery.
The Under 14s came from behind to take a share of the spoils from their home match with Kidderminster Harriers as Reece Day and Jay Dimmock netted.
In another 2-2 draw, the Under 12s were denied victory by a last-gasp Stourbridge equaliser in what was a pulsating encounter between two very good sides. Sam Shean opened the scoring and then supplied a cross that Oliver Pierkarski fired home to give City a 2-1 lead before the dramatic finish.
In the Under 13 clash between the same sides, league leaders Stourbridge won 6-0 but City can take plenty of positives from a game in which they held their own for long periods despite missing five players through injury and illness.
Elsewhere whilst the Under 10 Boys and Girls and Under 11s were taking on DB Academy, Wyre Forest Phoenix and Aston Villa Ladies respectively, the Under 18s travelled to Oxford City where they were edged out 1-2 with a late Cam Monteith goal setting up a tense finale in which the visitors came close to grabbing a leveller on several occasions. The Reserves dominated possession but succumbed to two late goals in a 0-2 loss versus Nuneaton Griff.
