CODICOTE Youth Under-14s bowed out of the County Cup 2-1 to Tornado Junior Sports in a close encounter at John Clements Memorial Ground.
The opening 30 minutes all belonged to the home side.
Matt Cattrick and William Rogers dominated in midfield, while the back four snuffed out any half chances from the Tring side.
With the home team in sparkling form, the pressure started to mount on the visitors.

Taylor Roff and William Hanson had half chances, but after 15 minutes things were still even.
But soon Joel Pullen got his second goal in two games when he found the top corner after neat passing on the edge of the area from Hanson and Roff.

Codicote once again should have gone on to take greater advantage when Hanson was put through on goal by a delicate chip from Roff.
He was thwarted by a deliberate handball from a defender, who was booked.
From the free-kick, Codicote captain Zack Broad only found the hands of a grateful keeper.
Codicote's form started to dip in the closing 10 minutes and left-back Tom Bundy had to come to his side's rescue on a number of occasions with some last-ditch tackles.
Towards the end of the first half Sports levelled.
An inswinging corner saw a deflected header hit the hands of the unfortunate Tom Bartholomeusz to give the Tring side a penalty, which they scored.
The second half started badly for Codicote as they conceded again within three minutes.
Codicote then had a right battle on their hands.
The young lads threw everything they had at the visitors, but to no avail and crashed out.
