A mixed-age Swiss Valley Rangers team made a fine start in their first match against Yatton.

A mixed-age Swiss Valley Rangers team made up of girls aged 13-15 took on Yatton.

Swiss played well for a team that had only three weeks preparation to set up as a team and play their first-ever match. Although conceding three, Swiss also managed to score three excellent team goals.

The first goal was a through ball to Emelia who timed her run brilliantly to beat the offside trap and score. The second was a volley by Mia and the match looked to be lost when Yatton scored a breakaway goal near the end, but Swiss managed to tie the game with a great cross from Katie saw Emeila bag her second with a great strike.

Congratulations go to Emily, Jaz, Daisy, Yara, Zia, Lucy and Lily, who also had parts to play in the three goals scored.

Swiss Valley Rangers Under-12 Girls and Stockwood shared the points in an exciting 3-3 draw.

With the away side being second in the table just three points behind SVR, this was always going to be an exciting encounter. Stockwood took the lead late in the first half before Swiss equalised just before the break.

After the break, Stockwood scored another two goals, while Swiss scored one. At 2-3 down, SVR went on the offensive which was to be scored by Cecily, another hat-trick hero on the day.

Celia, Shannon, Ella, Marta, Jasmine, Nancy, Xara, Jemima, Cecily, and Scarlet also had sterling matches, but SVR girl of the match went to Maggie.

At Gordano Fields it was top versus bottom in the Bristol Under-14 Girls League as Portishead Town took on Bradley Stoke Youth.

Portishead soon took the lead with a Keiana Jones solo run and lob over the keeper and also hit both post and bar in search of a second goal, before a deflection off a Jones cross made it 2-0. The half was rounded off with a Keira Howse lay-off for Emily Edwards to rifle home from the edge of the box.

The scoring picked up in the second half. Howse scored from a Millie Rosenior through ball and an attempted Bradley Stoke clearance made it 5-0.

Jones scored her second from an Edward’s corner, before Edwards made it 7-0. A Catherine Southern lob forward for Howse to despatch her second was followed by a Hannah Osmond goal.

The scoring was completed when Romia Nash played the ball to Southern for a final score of 10-0. Katie Gaman was awarded girl of the match.

Clevedon United Under-13 Girls travelled to Wembdon on the tail of a defeat to the same team in a closely-contested game last week.

Looking for revenge, the Clevedon team started on the front foot with a number of attacks with Leah and Iva prominent. Halfway through the first half, Maisy took control of the ball and fired a shot past the Wembdon keeper.

At the back, the strong Clevedon defensive line-up of Roseanna, Abi, Evie, Maria, Tia and Eleni held firm and the midfield took the game to Wembdon with strong work from an injured Holly, Keona, Phoebe and Aimee.

This work paid off allowing Maisy to score another goal. Girl of the match was awarded to Abi.
