The first-half was very competitive with neither side able to score, despite lots of chances being created at both ends.
The second half saw Uphill rewarded with a good team goal. Banwell started to create their own chances and Kaan Berk got Banwell’s first goal and Tom White was rewarded with two great goals.
Joe Honey scored the fourth with a great strike outside the box, before Uphill pulled a goal back from a corner, but the game was wrapped with a great header by Luke Maskell.

THE first game of the season saw newly-promoted Locking Athletic draw 2-2 at Priory Pumas.
The Locking back four were well organised by centre-back Jake Dunn, limiting Pumas chances on goal. Connor Porter and Jake Manville fought hard in the middle, and their efforts were rewarded when a move starting with Manville ended with a fine finish from Jacob Flavell. Pumas countered well and with Porter off injured, capitalised with an equaliser.
The second half was end-to-end, with a revitalised Vinnie Sibley a constant threat to the Pumas defence, yet it was Pumas who took the lead.
Adam Bungay and Ramel Smith worked the wings well, while Harry Baxter flourished alongside Sam Ford who added composure to the midfield. Locking’s pressure led to a free kick 20 yards out, which Porter drilled home with five minutes to go.
A special mention to full-backs Huw Pearse and Ryan Hill for their solid work. The Western Power Distribution man of the match went to Jack Howard.
