AN AWAY point was enough to put Clevedon level on points with the leaders in Brunel Division 2.
Clevedon were quickly out of the blocks, forcing the home side back. Beth Barzotelli was tormentor in chief as she took on the Shepton defenders, forcing the keeper into action. It wasn’t long before a Barzotelli cross was met by Zoe Patterson to put Clevedon ahead.
The midfield of Annie McNamara and Ella Davey combined well giving good ball to the front line. Clevedon continued to pepper the home goal with shots from Patterson and Barzotelli, but Shepton held out and with the first-half coming to a close, Clevedon were caught on the break as Shepton equalised.
The home side started the second half the stronger, bringing the Clevedon defence into action. Sarah Friend and Izzy Gray, supported by Libby Barzotelli nullified the threat, as the half wore on Clevedon re-asserted themselves.
The Davey/Barzotelli combination operating on the right opened up the home defence, but despite the best efforts of Patterson and Sophie Brown, the home side held on for a point.
On Saturday, Clevedon 2nds visit Nailsea 2nds in a Brunel Division 2 local derby at Gordano School.
