EBBSFLEET U9 Whites breezed passed Bexley with a crushing 14-1 triumph.
Grant Runter got two early goals to get the ball rolling before Sam Miles quickly added a third. Jayden Gildea (2), Donvieve Jones (2) and Harry Clancy then upped their tally before half-time. Clancy struck again after the break before Danny Peen (2), Miles and Gildea finished off the scoring.
THE U9 Reds secured a comfortable victory over Footscray Lions Yellow. Both teams looked to go on the offensive from the start, but it was Ebbsfleet who broke the deadlock after six minutes when Zachary Garratt found the back of the net from a corner. With three minutes left in the first half Luke Carey struck twice and then Jack Fenton made it 4-0 to open up a sizeable cushion.
After the break, James Miles got on the scoresheet, Carey added a second and Garratt completed his hat-trick to make the final score 8-1.
EBBSFLEET U10s were denied a late penalty in their draw against Beckenham Town. They were unlucky to concede a goal in the second half to go behind, but Liam Rosenfield smashed home an equaliser, which was how the two teams finished.
THE U11s faced little opposition in the form of Chislehurst in their Bexley League fixture. Jack Best and Ben Francis struck hat-tricks, while Mitchel Lidle, Sam Stewart, George Jordan and Ross Hicksman took them into double figures.
FLEET U13s were untroubled in the second round of the Kent County Cup against Sevenoaks Town Juniors. Will Sims put them ahead and, although Sevenoaks levelled soon after, Fleet then soared clear.
Sims benefited the most, adding five more to his tally, while James West struck a treble. Bradley Baker, Jack Easter and Josh Algar were also on target and central defender Jordan Payne, allowed a rare foray forward, got his first of the season.
THE U14s crashed out of the Kent County Cup despite taking a two-goal lead at Anchorians Phoenix. Goals from Kaiyne Woolery and Jackson Hughes put Fleet in a commanding position before they shipped five goals without reply.
