Emeralds (U18) sponsored by White Star Memories
MK City U18 Emeralds took on Chesham United Ladies in a quarter-final match. A very close game for us today, seeing 2:2 after 90 minutes. After a very tense penalty shootout, the Emeralds WON 5:4 on penalties. The girls are now through to the semi-final of the league cup. Great goals and penalties from both teams, with some cracking saves from our keeper. On to the semi-final in the new year. Well done Emeralds.
MK City Mens North Bucks (Saturday)
City unbeaten in 7 now. Tough game today with Twyford putting in a good performance against us but City managed to find the win.
Twyford 2 – 3 MK City FC
Onto a HUGE game with Newport next Saturday ⚽️
Sapphires (U12) sponsored by BQI protection
Sapphires faced division 1 side Tring in the second round of the league cup.
The first half was a tight affair, both sides played some good football creating the odd chance but no one was able to convert, 0-0 at half-time.
Tring started the second half well and their pressure paid off when they scored a slightly fortuitous goal, a deflected shot looping over the Sapphires goalkeeper Charlotte Stevens, Tring then scored 2 more quick goals from fantastic strikes. Sapphires didn’t give up though, Shania Ismail and Tilly Allen going close on a few occasions. With Sapphires trying to get back in the game, Tring capitalised hitting them on the break to make it 4-0. Tring were also awarded a penalty which Charlotte duly saved.
Shania did manage to get one back but Sapphires couldn’t quite manage to nick another to set up a nervier finish to the game, despite their best efforts.
Final score 4-1 to Tring. A slightly harsh score line in the end, a great performance against a good Tring side and loved the way the girls were still pushing to get back in the game even at 4-0.
