Published at 07:42, Wednesday, 23 January 2013
FIONA Hamilton became the first member of Wylam Rockettes to reach the landmark of 100 appearances as she contributed to the U12 draw with Cramlington United.
In her century competitive game, Fiona saw Rosie Spragg net in the 1-1 draw with Rockettes unable to find the decider despite some great attacking play by girl of the game Georgia Briggs.
Wylam Rockettes U11 secured back to back victories over Cramlington United as they ran out 3-2 winners.
Girl of the Game Faith Birch opened the Rockettes account with an excellent long range effort, and it took two late graces from Grace Stanton to secure the points.
Wylam Rockettes U10 continued the club’s tradition of dramatic Cup exits as they lost on penalties after drawing 3-3 with Whitley Coast Soccer.
The Rockettes scored through Fay Scott, Courtney Peel and girl of the game Annie Spragg, and could count themselves unlucky not to win in normal time after hitting the post four times.
Lottie Murphy confidently converted her penalty but Wylam ended up losing the shoot-out 3-1.
Wylam Rockettes U13 were on the wrong end of a mauling by an excellent Bedlington Town Wildcats team.
Girl of the game Lucy Rankin’s never say die attitude helped Ellen Packham and Georgia Birch to notch in the final 15 minutes, but it proved not enough for Wylam.
Hexham U11 Greens held their own against KYPC Storm in the North East Youth Development League but tired legs saw them fall away towards the end.
Goals from Jacob Kroese and James Watt, and a man of the match performance from Alex Willis, saw Hexham take the lead before their opponents stormed to success.
Hexham U16 made the long trip up the A1 to take on Berwick in the Pin Point Recruitment Junior Football League, full of hope after the previous week’s brilliant win. However, the only joy for the team was a tremendous free kick from Angus Rutherford as Berwick tasted success.
Prudhoe YC U18 failed to make the final four of the Northumberland FA Sunday Junior Cup when they lost 6-3 to Wallsend Community U17 despite a string of excellent saves from goalkeeper Liam Blair.
With goals from Callum Alexander, Joe Appleton and Ben Dibb-Fuller, Prudhoe had their opponents worried at 4-3 with five minutes remaining, but Wallsend pushed on to put their name in the semi-finals draw.
Sharing six goals with third placed Wallsend Community was enough to keep Prudhoe YC U14 Yellows top of Pin Point League Six, while a top of the table clash in Pin Point Five saw Prudhoe YC U15 Reds lose ground to rivals Wallsend despite a determined display in the 5-3 reverse.
Prudhoe YC U14 Reds were beaten 6-0 by runaway NEYDL leaders Newcastle East End, and Prudhoe YC U11 Rockets lost 6-3 to Cramlington United in NEYDL 9v9.
