Five-star performance puts Isledon Wolves through in cup
Keiron Loughney and Harvey Lea-Bramble both recorded braces as Isledon Wolves Under-14s stormed into the next round of the Camden & Islington League Cup with a 5-1 win over Regent’s Park.
Loughney powered past four defenders to smash in the opener and Lea-Bramble’s double sandwiched a Regent’s Park reply.
A second for Loughney was followed by Herbie Lea-Bramble’s strike to round off the scoring. Midfielder Ethan Irvine was Wolves’ man of the match.
Wolves Under-12s put in a dismal performance as they crashed out of the competition with a 4-0 defeat to The Hill, who looked the sharper side all over the pitch.
A late own goal earned Wolves Under-nines a 3-2 victory after they came from behind in their cup tie against The Hill.
