Swiss Valley Rangers under-12 girls moved up to fourth in the table after upsetting leaders Ashton Girls Youth at Clevedon School on Sunday.
SVR were quickly out of the blocks to create chances for Ella W and Jasmine, with support from Ava and Libby.
But Ashton began creating chances, which SVR kept out thanks to Amelia, Poppy, Ella B and Maggie.
Katie pulled off some great saves and used the ball well, as Ella W made a solo run through Ashton’s defence and slotted home.
Fern and Nyah added fresh legs in defence, with Xara and Nancy coming into midfield and attack. And good link-up play from Nancy and Ava created chances for Jasmine.
But Ashton kept pushing to force girls of the match Fern and Maggie to repel more efforts and Katie made a fingertip save from a late corner to preserve her clean sheet and seal a memorable triumph.
