Portishead Town Ladies Reserves defeated Pen Mill Reserves to stretch their lead at the top of the table.

Portishead Town Ladies Reserves extended their lead at the top with a 7-1 victory over Pen Mill Reserves.

Lisa Hill opened the scoring with a quick run down the wing before beating the keeper. Ellie Howard was quick to follow with a stunning free kick from 30 yards.

Howard made her second of the afternoon with another free kick on the edge of the box, before Pen Mill secured their one goal of the afternoon with a run through the middle to lob the Portishead keeper. Portishead finished the half 4-1 up after Hill scored her second of the afternoon.

Portishead started the second half looking to extend their lead. Ellie Purle netted next and after a Pen Mill corner, Portishead were quick to break with Eloise Hubbard running the length of the pitch, cutting inside and smashing home her first of the afternoon, shortly followed by her second, finishing the game 7-1.

The Robert John Hairdressing of the match went to Hannah Fletcher and Ellie Howard.
