A round-up of the latest matches involving Brent Schools’ FA teams

A superb hat-trick from Scout Waddington propelled Brent under-12 girls to a 6-0 victory over Queens Park Sharks.

Waddington opened the scoring with a slick finish after five minutes, before Maya Rosenberg doubled the lead with a calm finish into the corner of the net.

Chloe O’Donoghue made it 3-0 shortly before half-time, dribbling past two defenders before unleashing an unstoppable drive into the top corner.

O’Donoghue then grabbed her second of the match after the interval when rounding out a flowing team move.

Waddington netted the final two goals to complete the scoring for Brent, with her second of the match coming after a goalmouth scramble and her third following a good passage of play.

“The team are really enjoying their football. Some of the passing was superb. They really work hard in training and are getting better with every game,” said under-12s coach Chris Ampofo.

Brent: O’Donoghue, Ulusele, Dibley-Dias, Rosenberg, Waddington, Margetson, Kew, Lewis, Blue, McIntosh.

*The Brent under-13 boys’ team put in a spirited performance to come from behind and earn a well-deserved 1-1 draw against Barnet.

Brent goalkeeper and man of the match Ted Smith made a string of superb saves, while William Whitwell was outstanding in defence.

Shyon Dennis was a constant threat on the right wing and in the dying minutes of the game, the skilful winger beat two defenders and shot, only for a superb save from the Barnet keeper to deny him from scoring the winner.

“The players played some good stuff and showed real spirit to comeback. There were lots of positives,” said Brent manager Alvin Bubb.

Elsewhere, the Brent under-11 boys’ ‘A’ team went down 5-1 away from home against a strong Wokingham side.

The under-11 boys’ ‘B’ squad struggled in their match against Haringey, ultimately losing 6-0.

That was the same score the Brent under-12 boys’ team lost by in their fixture away to Barnet.

The Brent under-15 boys’ team showed promise in their first outing of the season under new coach Patricia Taylor.

The youngsters performed well in the second half of their game against Barnet, but went on to lose 4-2.
