Joe Bentham’s double enabled Islington & Camden Under-12s to beat Haringey 3-1 and gain revenge for their 5-3 defeat earlier in the season.
Bentham opened the scoring after 20 minutes on the astroturf at St Aloysius’ College, firing home a volley from the edge of the box as the I&C boys gained control.
Haringey responded well in the second half, but the home side doubled their advantage when Tyrese Litchmore played a superb pass behind the defence and Mark Stephenson capitalised to score.
Bentham grabbed his second of the game with 10 minutes remaining, finishing off a scramble in the penalty area with a left-foot shot before the visitors netted a late consolation.
