It was a mixed weekend for Portishead Town Under-14 Girls.

On Saturday, they faced an accomplished side from Ilminster in the Somerset League. A couple of good passing moves saw Portishead go into the break 2-0 down, despite the goalkeeping heroics of girl of the match Phoebe Delafaille.

Emily Edwards brought the scores level, first running onto a Megs Jefferies lobbed through ball, then a Kim Parker through ball. Unfortunately, Ilminster retook the lead and held on to win 3-2.

On Sunday, it was a rematch with Downend Flyers who took an early lead. Edwards was involved in Portishead’s three-goal reply. First a free kick into the six-yard area put away by Millie Rosenior. Then a corner sliced into the net by a Downend defender and finally a solo effort for a half time score of 3-1.

The visitors narrowed the gap before Tilly Smale lobbed the Downend keeper. Portishead stretched their lead with the best move of the game, begun by Kim Parker to Edwards whose cross found Keiana Jones to make it 5-2.

Toward the final whistle, Downend scored again, but the 5-3 win means Portishead stay top of the Bristol League.
