FOUR goals from striker Ellie Bray set up a good win for Backwell Athletic Girls Under-14s against a spirited St Nicks team.

After an even start, Backwell started to get on top and deservedly took the lead when Bray burst on to a through ball and tucked it past the keeper. Imo Fisher doubled the lead just before the break with a fine strike from a tight angle.

Bray made it 3-0 early into the second half with a powerful shot into the top corner, before St Nicks pulled a goal back. Backwell were too strong and two more fine finishes from player of the match Ellie Bray sealed the win.

AEK Boko 2

PORTISHEAD Girls Under-12s returned to winning ways after three successive draws.

Boko opened the scoring after 10 minutes with an excellent finish after a defensive mix up in the home defence. Portishead equalised when a run down the left wing by Laura Jone saw her weave through the Boko defence and score.

After the break, Portishead raised their game and straight from the kick-off Jess Smailes strode forward and her shot flew into the top corner to take the lead.

Portishead were now creating chances and two minutes later an own goal from Boko was the reward after good pressure. Boko pulled a goal back to make it 3-2, but a minute later, Smailes’ cross was converted home by Mia Shears.

Molly Yeatman got the goal that her performance deserved to make it 5-2 to Portishead.

Felicity Hind took home the player of the match trophy.
