Upminster’s Branfil Primary School proved dominant in football and hockey as they booked their place in the London Youth Games.
Up against 27 Havering schools in the football, they won five of their six group matches as they took on Crowlands, Langtons, Ardleigh Green, Mead, Brady and Clockhouse.
In the quarter-finals they had to go through a nail-biting penalty shoot-out before getting past St Marys, while Harrow Lodge were beaten 2-0 in the semis.
