The Brent under-12 girls’ football team opened their Camden & Regent’s Park League campaign in fine style with a 7-1 victory over Regent’s Park.

Chloe O’Donoghue opened the scoring for the borough girls, collecting a pass from Giuseppina Carnevale before dribbling past a defender to rifle into the net.

Carnevale then got into the act, driving down the left before cutting inside to drive the ball home.

Good play from Tirion Lewis set up Carnevale to make it 3-0 with a cross-shot to put Brent in full control at the break.

Early in the second half, O’Donoghue added her second of the game when rounding off a flowing move from her side.

Substitute Maya Rosenberg then showed great technique finishing a sweeping Brent counter-attack with a crisp first time shot into the net to make it five.

Scout Waddington capped a fine combative display with a well taken goal to make it 6-0 to Brent.

Though Regent’s Park nabbed a consolation strike, Lewis ensured Brent would have the last word by scoring the final goal.

“The girls passed the ball well and played some great football. They can take confidence as they showed they can compete,” said coach Chris Ampofo.

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

*The Brent under-11 boys’ football team showed great skill in collecting a 4-2 victory over Dartford.

Despite the final score, Dartford opened the scoring before the borough boys rallied and took control.

Two goals in quick succession from Troy Kelly shortly before half-time turned the game around in Brent’s favour as they led 2-1 at the interval.

Dhyan Sharma then extended Brent’s lead, before Dartford halved the arrears with a goal from a corner.

Casper Lindner then saved a Dartford penalty, before Kelly completed his hat-trick to seal the win for Brent.

Brent: Azziz, Barrett, Chevannes, Kelly, Lindner, Lovell, Moore, Muslika, Pollendine, Prela, Sharma, Somers, Zaniuncio, Zebiri.

* The Brent under-11 boys’ B team suffered a 4-3 defeat at Haringey despite a determined display.

Jack Egan scored twice in defeat for Brent, with Joel Otaraoh nabbing the other goal.
