A brace from Giuseppina Carnevale was not enough as Brent under-11 girls suffered a 5-2 loss against their Lewisham rivals.

Despite a brave effort in the first half, the Brent girls found themselves 4-0 down at half-time.

Carnveale rounded off a fine team move early in the second half to pull one back for the Brent girls.

Though Lewisham were able to add a fifth, Carnevale then added her second late on to ensure Brent scored the final goal.

“I am so proud of the girls. They really battled hard. They are improving every game,” said Brent coach Chris Ampofo. “The defending was excellent in the second half and the two goals were sensational”
