Three Leyton Orient Advanced Soccer School (LOASS) sides lifted silverware at the cup finals day of the Essex County Girls Football League in Basildon on Sunday.

LOASS took three sides - their Under-12s, Under-13s and Under-14s - and each came home having triumphed in their respective cup finals.

The Under-12s were first in action in the League Cup final against Little Thurrock Dynamos (LTD) and got the ball rolliny by winning on penalties.

Medina Asif scored a stunning solo effort for LOASS in a 1-1 draw at the end of normal time and it was LOASS who were on top in extra-time without forcing a winner.

Goalkeeper Louise French successfully converted LOASS' first spot kick before returning to her goal to save the first two Little Thurrock kicks.

From that platform, LOASS emerged victorious from the shoot-out, winning 4-2 to complete a league and cup double.

The Under-14s were next up, with Billericay standing between them and the President's Cup.

LOASS were comprehensive winners, securing the cup with a 4-2 win thanks to goals from Ellie Barra-Gilbert, Gemma Aldeen, Lauren George and Jameela Barratt.

Finally it was the turn of the Under-13s to try and maintain LOASS' 100 per cent record on the day and they did so in emphatic fashion, saving the best until last.

Going head-to-head with FC Claction in the President's Cup final, LOASS crushed their opponents 5-0, though it could have been more had it not been for an excellent display by the Clacton goalkeeper.

Aaliyah Boyea put the East Londoners ahead before the break before Rheanna Patterson grabbed a second-half brace to take the game out of Clacton's reach.

Ciara Gavin netted a fourtb efore Boyea applied the gloss with her second and LOASS' fifth.
