Key unlocks Wargrave defence for Wealdstone

PUBLISHED: 16:33 28 November 2012

Sarah Key scored the winner with a classy solo strike as Wealdstone Girls under-18s claimed the points with a 2-1 win at Wargrave.

Wealdstone started well and Ria Bird should have put them in front when she sped into the Wargrave penalty area, but fired over the bar with just the goalkeeper to beat.

Bird made amends just before half-time, tapping in the opener after a good move involving Sophie Clegg and Catherine Fahy on the right.

Wargrave pressed hard in the second half and grabbed a deserved equaliser, while a superb stop from Sydney Goodwin prevented them from taking the lead five minutes later.

The home side struck the post as well, but it was Key who settled the game 20 minutes from time, running almost from the halfway line and bringing the ball into the penalty area before steering it just inside the far post.

Wargrave almost snatched a draw in the last minute after a break down the right, but Goodwin came to the Stones’ rescue again.

Midfielder Piper Krase was the star performer for Kinja under-12 Rockets as they demolished Watford 7-1 in the first round of the League Cup.

Krase produced a majestic performance, scoring two goals and setting up two more as Nicole Moore netted her second successive hat-trick.

Kinja created a string of chances and Bianca Stapledon was also on target, while Deja Campbell added the Rockets’ seventh goal with a powerful free-kick from 30 yards.

Goals from Elijah Carter and Richy Azowenu secured a 2-0 home win for AFC Wembley under-12 boys against Larkspur Rovers.

Azowenu and Jelani Inyama both went close before Carter gave AFCW the lead, finishing off after Azowenu had rounded the goalkeeper and cut the ball back.

Carter won a penalty in the second half, only to blaze the spot-kick wide, but Azowenu clinched the points, netting the rebound after Shakur Farah’s effort had been tipped onto the bar.

The under-12 B team went down 4-3 at Yeading HEW, but the under-11s triumphed 4-2 against TFA Totteridge and the under-13s hammered St Joseph’s 7-1.

There was little joy for AFCW’s under-16 team, who slumped to a 5-0 home defeat by Spartans, while the under-14s were beaten 5-3 in a Harrow Youth League Challenge Cup tie at Ickenham.
