Results W/E 5th May 2024

The Seniors led the way this weekend whilst it was only the U12 Boys who went through to the next round of the Trophy Cup:

The Firsts beat Hayes and Hillingdon 3-2 at home. This was a particularly pleasing win against one of the leading teams in the League. After a very fast start the Dragons were 1-0 up but then had to weather some challenging periods. The Dragons showed the spirit and quality that the Coaches expect and in doing so have set the platform for next season.

The Blues drew 3-3 to Kodak away. A great performance from the Blues who were unlucky not to clinch a win away from home.

The Old Dragonians beat Hillingdon Abbots 4-2 away. A great way to sign off the Old Ds season with a comprehensive victory over HA which also included their forwards 3rd hattrick of the season. The Dragons are unbeaten in their last 8 games which is a great credit to the players and Coaches who have worked hard throughout the season.

The U12 Boys Red beat London Eagles 5-3 at home to go through to the SF of the League Trophy. A good game to watch with lots of goals and passion. The Eagles tried to get back into the game in the second half but were met with solid saves. Another two goals from the Dragons caused a few tempers to flare towards the end, but the Dragons kept their heads, and crucially the lead, to go through to the Semi Finals.

The U12 Boys Whites lost 2-6 to Headstone Manor in the QF of the League Trophy. Trying to emulate their fellow 12 Boys Red, the Dragons battled as hard as they could and left everything on the line. Alas, it wasn’t to be this time.

The U15 Boys drew 1-1 at home to Regents Park in normal time of their League Trophy QF only to then bow out 1-3 in penalties. The Dragons were 1-0 up at halftime but RP got the equaliser early in the second. From then on each team dug down and as hard as they tried, no one could find a winner. The Dragons played well but will be practising penalties over the summer.

The U17 Boys inexplicably lost their lead in the last three minutes to Celtic away in the League Trophy. Both sets of spectators were put through the ringer in this most exciting of matches. Recovering from 1-2 down at half time, the Dragons were the better side for 42 minutes of the second half, scoring twice in 3 minutes. Leading 3-2 with a place in the semifinal almost in their grasp the Dragons somehow managed to concede once in normal time and 2 more in added time to lose 5-3. A painful lesson in game management to learn and benefit from next season.

The U18 Boys lost 2-4 at home to Regents Park in the QF of the League Trophy. The Dragons played well and hard but eventually, at the final whistle, were the ones on the wrong side of the scoreline and thus their Cup run ended.

The U11 Boys, U13 Boys, U14 Boys and U16 Boys had no scheduled games.

The U10 Boys trained.

The new U11 Girls beat Brook House 4-0 away. Another great win for the Dragons who displayed incredible team work from beginning to end.

The U13 Girls lost 1-2 at home to Most Wanted Elite. The Dragons fought a close contested game and were unlucky to not win.

The U14 Girls lost 2-4 away to Islington Borough away. Away to a formidable opponent, the Dragons gave everything they could on the pitch and played well. A result to learn and build from.

The U16 Girls had no game.
