Charlotte Cooper netted five goals for Team Mendip Under-16s in their 8-0 victory over Yate.

TEAM Mendip Under-16s travelled to a windswept Yate and came away with an 8-0 win.

Five goals in the first half from Charlotte Cooper (3) and Melissa Sturman (2) saw Mendip take charge. The second half was much harder against the wind and with Amy Clarke (captain) missing, the remaining backs Letaasi Lucas, Chloe Williams and Lacey Bell had to work extra hard.

It was not long before Mendip scored again with Cooper adding another two to make her total five and Sturman crossing to Yaz Little to score the eighth.

Parents’ player of the match went to Letaasi Lucas.

HUTTON Under-14 girls visited Portishead Town to try and keep their hopes of a fourth place finish alive and came away 1-0 victors.

Lauryn Nigh and Hannah Worley were instrumental in breaking up the home attacks and feeding Danni Williams and Rachael Curtis on the wings, while Hutton’s rear guard of Hannah Capes, Georgia Ferdinando, Meg Lewis and Eva Ferdinando were in no mood to concede any ground, with Chloe Woods alert in the visiting goal.

In attack, Hutton posed a constant threat as Jazz Hurrell and Bobbie Perrett’s movement stretched the home defence.

Hutton were forced to reshuffle following a hefty challenge on Curtis, but with Anya Lawrence, Nicole Badman and Steph Abram coming off the bench, this had little impact on Hutton’s attacking intent.

They took the lead midway through the half as Hurrell’s quick turn and fine finish caught out the home defence.

Portishead were given a lifeline with 10 minutes remaining when they were awarded a penalty, but Woods turned the resultant kick over the bar.

The supporter’s player was awarded to Chloe Woods and Silvermoor Interiors girl of the game accolade went to Hannah Capes.

The club’s best wishes go to Rachel Curtis, who was forced to leave the game early with a broken collarbone.
