Kewstoke Lions 2

Hutton 1

THREE Division 1 points were vital to Kewstoke Lions after two straight defeats and they started quickly against an organised Hutton side.

Aaron Bray and Jack Brewer used the flanks well to create chances for others. The opening goal followed a Bray free kick into the box that was partially cleared only for Leon Brueford to smash home.

Hutton got back into the game in the final 20 minutes of the first half, Nick Blake making a superb stop from the only real chance they created.

The second half was an open game and Hutton equalised after Kewstoke failed to deal with a long kick and the striker turned and finished well. The winner came from an excellent long range shot from Ben Popperwell.

Man of the match went to captain Adam Brueford.
