ALREADY promoted Gryphons ladies emphatically ended the season with a fantastic final victory.

The top-of-the-table team instantly took control with Leanne Chitty scoring from a penalty corner. Pressing home the advantage, the home team fought hard before Emma Oliver lobbed the keeper.

Midfield twins Jade and Verity Summerell, and defenders Hannah Holden and Helen Welsh worked tirelessly to keep a clean sheet into half-time.

The second half soon saw Hayley James seize an opportunity from open play, but Mendip battled to sneak a goal. Undeterred, Lara Ford sweetly set up James for her second to seal the game.

Securing the double promotion, table-topping Gryphons ladies’ seconds beat local rivals North Somerset 3-1.
