Clevedon United Colts Under-11s enjoyed victory over Priory Pumas.

Clevedon United Colts Under-11s got back to winning ways after strong early season form saw them entered into a tough league.

The Colts dominated possession against a strong Priory Pumas team, but finally got the breakthrough after some great skill and a clinical finish for George T, his first of the season.

They continued to push for a second as Rory was dominating midfield and some great wing play from Charlie almost set up Will for what would have been a deserved goal.

Just before half time and against the run of play, Pumas managed to equalise on the break with a well-taken finish that the returning George G in goal could not quite manage to keep out.

The game followed a familiar pattern after the break with the Colts putting pressure on the hosts defence and it finally paid off as Jamie swept in a deserved second from a Colts corner.

Howard thumped a sweet volley just over the bar and Cam was unlucky to have an effort cleared off the line before Ben S wrapped things up from the penalty spot that was earned by the pace and trickery of Will.

The Larkhall coaches were full of praise for Portishead Under-13s as they put in a dominant performance, running out 5-0 winners.

In the first half despite having most of the play, Portishead continued to pass up chance after chance in front of goal which included a goal ruled off for offside and Portishead keeper Ethan Noble made a great low save.

Portishead finally made the breakthrough with Tom Averley being fouled in the middle of the pitch, but with the referee choosing to allow advantage, Oscar Boorman carried on before playing the ball into Alex Esposito who fired the visitors into the lead.

After the break, Boormann forced the excellent Larkhall goalkeeper into a good save to parry the ball to Ronnie Budd who fired wide.

Finally, a second goal arrived as Esposito set up Sammy Foster to score. A few moments later Esposito was unlucky not to wrap up his hat-trick as he smashed the ball off a post.

The third goal came from an unfortunate own goal after good work by Piotr Petrinski whose cross was deflected in. Soon after it was 4-0 when Foster scored his second.

Portishead wrapped up the points with Boorman setting up Foster to make it five.
