Swiss Valley Under-13 Girls narrlow lost in a seven-goal thriller against Brislington.

Swiss Valley Under-13 Girls and Brislington were involved in a fabulous match which had end-to-end action throughout.

Brislington took the lead from a fortuitous goal after a mis-placed back pass from SVR. An equaliser came from a great team goal involving Zia, Katie, Lucy and Skye, all combining to set Emelia up to score.

After the break, Brislington took the lead again, but Swiss replied with goals from Lucy and Skye, both grabbing their first goals in competitive football and making the score 2-3 to the away side.

Swiss looked to be in control until the last 20 minutes when they went a player down due to a slight injury. Brislington were kept at bay with Emily, Sabrina, and Immy putting in a great shift covering at the back.

Jazmin, who had an excellent first half in defence, was now bettering that performance with some fantastic saves in goal. With Swiss starting to tire, Katie came back on to try and help at the back, but was unable to stop the home side stealing victory.

With plenty of fresh players on the bench, the home side managed to score two late goals to make the score 4-3.

Swiss Valley Rangers Girls Under-10s, 11s and 12s enjoyed a team outing at Bristol City Ladies v Brighton after a visit to the Avonmouth LaserQuest.

The day ended with the Swiss girls meeting each of the Bristol City players at the end of the match which finished 3-0 to the home side.

Portishead Town Girls Under-14s were away to Whitchurch in the Bristol Girls League and returned with an 8-1 victory.

Emily Edwards opened the scoring with a tap-in from a Keiana Jones dribble and cross. For her second, Edwards squeezed a shot under the home keeper having received an exquisite diagonal pass from former Whitchurch midfielder, Faith Constable.

Edwards completed a first-half hat-trick receiving a through ball from Jones. However, Portishead were pegged back when their defence failed to deal with a bouncing ball for a half time score of 3-1.

Edwards continued the scoring in the second half from the edge of the box receiving a pass from girl of the match Keira Howse. There was an element of luck in Portishead’s next goal, when a home defender deflected Kim Parker’s goalbound shot into the corner of the net.

Next an Edward’s dribble, centred for Howse to score with a half-volley from the edge of the box, followed by a Constable cross for Catherine Southern to net the loose ball, and finally a Jones break from left back into the home penalty box, before lobbing the keeper for a final score of 8-1.

Clevedon United Under-13s Girls lost to top of the league Mendip.

The girls faced a tough challenge against a Mendip side who have only lost one game this season. In the first-half, Clevedon were strong and the defence stopped the Mendip attacks, while the midfield worked hard down the flanks to create a number of good chances.

However, after the break, Mendip turned up a few notches and Clevedon tired resulting in goals for Mendip. Girl of the match went to the Clevedon Roseanna, her performance was outstanding.
