A lively start from Clevedon saw them take control of the game, Ella Davey and Anya Colyer in midfield were making life difficult for the visitors and it was no surprise when Colyer popped up at the far post to put Clevedon ahead.
The home side continued to attack, but Lodway gradually worked their way back into the game, great play from Christina Becker and Meg Coulter at the back held them at bay, but the visitors’ experienced players found a way through to level the scores. Clevedon keeper Jemilla Colyer produced some superb saves, including a wonderful save where she used her stick to turn a high shot round the post.
Buoyed by the great defensive display, Clevedon moved forward and the alert Amy Dewfall scored to give Clevedon a 2-1 interval lead.
It was much of the same after the interval, lovely hockey from Harriet Watts and Caitlin Meredith opened up the Lodway defence. Daisy Lacey came close to scoring and Colyer and Dewfall were unlucky not to add further goals.
Tamsin Debude worked tirelessly to thwart the visiting attack and Clevedon crossed the line comfortably to claim the three points.
