PANSHANGER Under-11s Leopards continued their run of form against Mid Herts rivals Bury Rangers Blacks on Saturday.

The Leopards dominated the first half with a great display of passing and individual skills.

The home team got an early lead and by the end of the half Kane Montenegro, Andy Sifolongwane and Abel Solomon had all netted twice. Not to be outdone, Terri Harvey had a header saved and Jon Brind had the keeper beaten but saw his shot go wide of the post.

A goal from Tomas Martins and an unfortunate own goal meant the Leopards ended the first half 8-0 up.

A resilient Bury side made the Leopards work hard in the second half but couldn't stop Sifolongwane and Solomon completing their hat-tricks.

Defender Reece Maggs was unlucky not to get his first of the season after the keeper pulled of a great diving save from a close-range shot.

Maggs then went in goal to give stand-in keeper Billy Kentsley his chance to make the final score 11-0 to the Leopards.
