The second day of the Futures Cup at Oaklands College, St. Albans saw some finalists confirmed and other pools left to be decided on the third day of competition.
In the Under 15 Boys competition, Wessex Leopards beat Caledonian Cougars 1-0, but will have a nervous wait to see how Mercia Lynx fare against the Cougars if they are going to have any chance of reaching the final. The Pennine Pumas will play Saxon Tigers for a place in the final after they beat the Celtic Jaguars 9-0.
Mercia Lynx booked their place in the Under 15 Girls final with an 8-0 win over Caledonian Cougars, with Surbiton’s Lily Johnson notching a hat-trick with Maddie Long and Sally Pethybridge also on the scoresheet. Pennine Pumas need to beat the Celtic Jaguars to meet the Lynx in the final.
Saxon Tigers reached the Under 17 Boys final after a 5-0 win over Caledonian Cougars. Pennine Pumas beat the Celtic Jaguars 6-0 and will play Mercia Lynx for the chance to face the Tigers in the final.
Wessex Leopards beat Caledonian Cougars 1-0, but that was enough for them to secure their second win of the tournament and a place in the final. The Pennine Pumas beat Saxon Tigers 3-1 and simply need to avoid defeat to Mercia Lynx to take on the Leopards for the title.
