Team Mendip started this South West Women’s League game brightly despite the hot conditions and scored after just four minutes.

Ellie Roberts latched onto a good pass from Karmisha Wilson to beat the advancing Oldland keeper.

Mendip dominated the first-half winning several corners, but were unable to capitalise on the excellent deliveries by Ellie Orritt. However, it was the prolific Roberts who eventually headed home from an Orritt corner.

Mendip continued to control the game in the second half, until Oldland were awarded a free kick which was delivered to unmarked Nicky Hawkins-Hoare who headed home from close range.

This changed the game and Oldland had a good spell pressing for the equaliser which came on 80 minutes when a long-range shot from Anneka Hawkins-Hoare evading stand-in keeper Sarah Adams.

Both teams pressed for the winner and Mendip came out on top when Roberts’ left-foot finish grabbed the points and her hat-trick.

Ellie Orritt and Tash Crew shared the PD & CL Building Services girl of the game. Mendip are at home to Chippenham Town on Sunday in a double header. Kick off 2pm at Worle Recreation Ground.
