Portishead A team continued full steam ahead with victory over Worle Rangers.

Worle came to Bristol Road for the return leg in the league, having already played the home fixture a matter of weeks ago.

Young Lewis Wheatcroft opened the scoring for Portishead with an absolute firecracker into the top corner. The lead was doubled by another young gun - Luke Osgood, who added to his five-goal haul last week with a back post header.

Worle were gifted a lifeline by Posset, who conceded a penalty which was converted before half-time.

The game was on edge, but Posset held firm in the second half and created chances, before Osgood was taken down in the box to win Portishead a penalty which he despatched.

This made the last five minutes a little more comfortable for the home side. Three points clear at the top and Posset A have 15 points from 15 in the league. Man of the match Ollie Carter got the votes for his complete performance.

On a five-game winning streak, Portishead were on a high going in this game.

Both teams started strongly, but defences kept out any chances before Clapton broke the deadlock by netting two goals to put a pressure on the Colts to get back into the game.

Portishead came back with a brilliant strike from John Freeman to give the away team a chance of getting back into the game by making it 2-1 at the break.

In the second half the battling continued, but it was Clapton who capitalised on their chances by scoring another two goals. Portishead were not finished as a spectacular strike from Matt Coyle gave Portishead hope of a revival.

Soon after, the Colts piled on the and with minutes to go, man of the match Leon Kitchen saw his strike hit the crossbar and beat the Clapton keeper.

With a minute to go, the pressure was too much for the home team as Ben Skipps’ wonder strike saw the ball fly past the Clapton keeper once more for the equaliser to continue Portishead’s unbeaten run.
