The Under-16's West were playing Oakhill Tiger Sharks in the Spring Challenge Plate and despite going two goals down early on, Carl Biggs' brace put them back on level terms.
Biggs would have grabbed his hat-trick but for the boggy conditions and Oakhill made them pay when they went straight up the other end to grab the winner in a disappointing finish to the match.
The Under-16's East were away to Sun Postal Yellow and they emerged 2-0 winners thanks to goals from Michael Alderman and Max O'Shea. There were good performances from Michael Hill and Christian Pascal.
The Under-16's South went down to a 9-2 defeat against Harpenden Colts Hawks after picking up several injuries during the match. James Sissons and William Ellis grabbed their goals while Neil Jardine put in an all-action display to catch the eye.
A sparkling second half display by the Under-11's Boreal gave them a 5-2 win away at Tring Tornadoes.
Andrew Hewitt and Tom Mathieson both grabbed two apiece while an excellent solo effort from Sian Khan-Boylan completed their scoring. Khan-Boylan's effort was the highlight of the contest with the player dribbling from inside his own half before finishing calmly.
