Old Bristolians 4th XI 0

Clevedon Ladies produced a scintillating display brushing aside Old Bristolians to bring the curtain down on the first half of the league programme.

From the off, Ella Davey drove Clevedon forward with superb tackling and passing. Harriet Watts opened the scoring stealing in at the far post. Anya Colyer made it two with a well-placed strike, while Daisy Lacey got the third.

The home defence with Meg Coulter and Laura Gillespie in commanding form kept OBs attack at bay.

With all the home players working hard for each other, there was no way in for the visitors. Rachel Elliot scored the final goal of the half to see Clevedon 4-0 up at the interval.

After the break, OBs upped their game but Davey, Nicola Gillespie and Christina Becker were giving nothing away.

Clevedon regained the initiative and Keziah Douglas and Nicky Warburton stuck passes deep in the heart of the visiting defence. Lacey popped up to notch number five, before a well executed reverse stick strike gave Amy Dewfall number six.

Douglas reaped reward for her powerful display with two well-taken goals to complete the scoring. Old Bristolians put in lot of effort to take the game to their hosts in the final minutes, but were unable to break through.
