Clevedon Ladies 4
Mendip 3rd XI 0
Most of the game was played in the Mendip half, the over populated D and the impressive performance of the visiting keeper was in some way responsible for Clevedon’s lack of goals.
Time and time again Clevedon were thwarted by the towering Mendip keeper, who proved agile and quick to get down to ground shots, but a quick thinking Vicky Ford broke the deadlock with a powerful strike.
Caitlin Meredith, Amy Dewfall and Anna Barzotelli went close, while Ashlee Carter and Amy Douglas plugged away, but the score remained 1-0 at the interval.
After the break, Mendip pushed forward but Tamsin Debude, Laura Gillespie and the irrepressible Ella Davey were always in control.
Clevedon moved purposefully forward a beautiful ball from Barzotelli found Meredith who swept the ball home to make it 2-0. It wasn’t long before the next goal, Dewfall seizing on a loose ball to make it three.
A rasping shot from Douglas hit the post and Meg Coulter went close, Ellen Armstrong was heavily involved in the home attacks and Rachel Elliot took every opportunity to join the attack.
Davey made it four following a short corner, more effort followed, all watched by Christina Becker, the Clevedon keeper who for the majority of the game was a spectator.
On Saturday, Clevedon travel to play Hanham for a noon start at Abbeywood School.
