Normally a close tie, Leighton Buzzard Ladies crushed neighbours Tring 5-1 on Saturday.

Though a good effort from both teams, Siobhan Hennessy’s 1st goal set the pace for the rest of the team. Goal after goal managed to find their way tumbling past Tring’s defence and ending with a satisfying bang of the back board.

Hennessy’s first was a precursor an outstanding goal scored by Gabbie Avola from a tight angle to make it 2-0.

This week’s Player of the Match Hollie Taylor scored a brace, and displaying some lovely runs in midfield.

Hennessy rounded off the scoring with the final goal of the game.

Trings effort was not to be sniffed at with a solid goal piercing the LBHC defence mid-game.

The Men’s 1sts patchy form continued though as they went down 3-1 to Wallingford 2nds.

Leighton got off to a rocky start as Wallingford’s forwards managed to take the lead early on with three quick goals.

Leighton found their feet and had some nice passing done which lead to a nice goal from Ben Smith who got a deflection from a great strike by Nick Marshall from the top of the D.

Strong midfield play from man of the match Sam Gale lead to further opportunities helping Leighton dominate the second half with some great work from the forwards Dave Fry and Tommy Lakins who made some great attempts but were unable to get the ball home.

It was better news for the Fledglings though, who won an eight-goal thriller against Aylesbury 5ths.

Adrian Gotzheim fired Leighton into the lead, before Aylesbury responded with two strikes to take the lead.

Gotzheim fired back with two goals to complete his hat-trick, putting Leighton 3-2 up.

Jonathan Rogers doubled Leighton’s lead before Aylesbury pulled one back. Matt Carter made sure at 5-3.
