Bedfont Green U13s won their first trophy of the season at the weekend - but they needed to win two penalty shoot-outs to do it!
They won the Yeading Tournament after beating Princes Park A 4-3 on spot-kicks on the final following a goalless draw, having beaten Majix A 5-3 on penalties in the semi-final following a 2-2 draw.
Earlier, they beat Princes Park A 3-1 in the quarter-final having progressed from the group stage with two wins and two draws.
Jordan Hardman top-scored with four goals, while Mitchell Birkhead and Frankie Romp hit two each and trialist 'John' scored one.
It was so nearly a similar story for the U10 Colts, but their first trophy of the season ended up being the runners-up one at the Elm Grove Tournament.
Like the U13s, their semi-final and final went to penalties, and keeper James Chandler was the hero in the semi, saving three spot-kicks after a 0-0 draw against Kingston.
But he could not repeat his heroics in the final against Esher A, which Green lost 4-3 on penalties after another goalless draw.
Adam Ellis netted three, Harrison Livinsgtone two and Ben Carter one for the U13s, who earlier topped their group with four wins and a draw.
Clean sheets were the order of the day for the U16s, who won the Comet FC Tournament in Hemel Hempstead without conceding a single goal.
Karl Yates scored twice, and there was a goal each for Jack and Ben Brooks-Smith and Chris Boxx for the U16s, who celebrated their second tournament win and fourth trophy of the season.
Also landing their fourth silverware of the campaign were the U9 Youth, albeit the runners-up trophy at the Kingstonian Tournament, which they won last year.
They triumphed in three out of four group games, losing only to Epsom Eagles Colts, who then beat them 1-0 in the final after Green had beat Epsom's Colts side by the same score in the semis.
Killian Newport netted four goals while brother James bagged three, and Nicholas Hashimi grabbed two.
At the same tournament, the U9 Colts just missed out on the semis but were awarded the prize of an England shirt for most sporting U9 team. Yousef Hedfi notched their only goal.
The U8 Youth players will be sick of the sight of penalties after missing all four in their semi-final shoot-out against Binfield Fire at the South of England Championship in Reading.
Even more frustrating, they had dominated the game, and had earlier won three and drawn one of the four group games.
But if that was bad luck, the U14s must have run over a black cat on their way to the Yeading Tournament.
Fielding two teams, they lost Jimmy Hamlet to two broken toes and George Plavin to a hamstring injury, meaning no subs.
To make matters even harder, Mitchell Scott had to sit out the rest of the tournament after being sent off in the second game, but both teams scraped through to the quarter-finals.
There, the As went out 3-0 to eventual winners Pinnacle, while the Bs lost an epic penalty shoot-out 11-10 after a goalless draw with the hosts.
Ben Stamps netted two goals, while there was one each for George Coyte, Darren Butler and Tony Hamilton-Bower.
Also in action at Yeading were the U11 Youth, who also exited on spot kicks in the semi-finals, while the U8 Colts were knocked out in the group stages following three goalless draws and a 2-0 defeat.
The U11 goalscorers were Dean Mooney, Mattie Dowling and Cieran O'Halloran.
