Swiss Valley Girls Under-12s continued their winning streak by beating Ashton 8-1.
Swiss Valley Girls Under-12s continued their winning streak with a great team effort at home to Ashton Girls.
Ella chalked up her first hat-trick of the season, but was upstaged by girl of the match Jasmine who put away four goals to round off a wonderful all-round performance to help her team to an 8-1 victory.
Nancy scored the other goal, but all would not have been possible without a great performance from team mates Cecily, Maggie, Shannon, Marta, Scarlet, Celia and Xara.
The Under-11s gave a great performance against Isle of Wedmore, despite losing 4-2.
Evie, Jemima, Isi, Xara, Lizzie, Amelia, Jasmine, Lucy, Maya, Niamh, Darcy and Ella all had a great runaround creating multiple chances throughout the match, only to be thwarted by some excellent goalkeeping from Wedmore keeper. The SVR development team can be proud that on another day, many of those missed chances would have been put away.
Portishead Town Under-14 Girls returned to winning ways in spectacular form to run out 9-1 winners against Axbridge to go top of the Somerset League.
Keira Howse scored four, Emily Edwards two, Hannah Osmond two and Megs Jefferies one. The pick of the goals being Edwards’ second, a neat one-two from girl of the match Amelia McGawn-Brown to Hannah Osmond to Edwards then into the back of the net.
The top-of-the table clash with Team Mendip from Weston, saw Portishead run out 6-0 winners to go top of the Bristol League.
Portishead took an early lead when Edwards broke clear, but despite Portishead carving out some goal scoring opportunities, the score remained 1-0 at half time.
The second half saw Portishead get into their stride, neatly passing the ball around the increasingly beleaguered Team Mendip rearguard. First Keira Howse put Edwards through for her second, then Livvy Morgan put Howse through for her first.
Next a one-two with Millie Rosenior gave Edwards space to hit a shot too strong for the Team Mendip keeper to keep out, then a Rosenior cross to Keira Howse whose turn and shot made it 5-0.
The scoring ended when a Katie Quick through ball allowed Howse to round the keeper for a final score of 6-0.
Hannah Osmond, a stalwart in defence was awarded girl of the match, the clean sheet being as important to an impressive victory as the six goals. Faith Constable, on her debut, fitted effortlessly into the Portishead midfield, with her neat foot work and passing.
