EBBSFLEET U10 Whites missed some early chances against Darent River Green, but still managed to record a comfortable victory.
Darent scored first early on, although the Fleet came back well and efforts from Cameron, Darcy and Hugh earned them a two-goal cushion at half-time.
The second half started with another goal by Darent, yet the Whites didn't panic and settled down to create some good passages of play and capitalised twice more on Darent errors to finish 5-2 winners.
THE U11s were unlucky not to emerge with even a draw as they hosted Lewisham Youth Black.
Charlie Stewart and George Jordan dominated in midfield, but a momentary loss of concentration allowed Lewisham to score the only goal of the game in the final moments.
EBBSFLEET U13s coasted to a comprehensive success at home to Dover Athletic to consolidate their position at the top of the table.
In a fantastic team display, Josh Algar bagged a well-deserved hat-trick, with the other goals going to George Goodwin - after the goalkeeper had parried a Will Sims strike - and James West, following a terrific run through the heart of midfield.
The Fleet's defence also put in another quality performance to maintain a clean sheet in the 5-0 triumph.
THE U14s travelled to table-toppers Real 60 and were pipped in a competitive match.
Fleet made the early inroads and took the advantage with a brace from Robbie Cameron. However, Real battled back and showed plenty of guts to run out 3-2 victors.
