Hutton Under-15 girls hosted Banwell for the first meeting between the two sides.

HUTTON Under-15 girls entertained Banwell in their first-ever meeting in this long awaited local derby.

The girls established an early lead when the visiting keeper was unable to hold Gabby Massey’s shot in the driving rain and Tia Craig made no mistake from close range. Minutes later the lead was doubled when Massey netted.

Almost immediately, Robyn Perrett’s shot was stopped on the line by some desperate defending, only for Jodie Filer to rifle the ball into the roof of the net.

Banwell regrouped and made inroads into the Hutton half and Lauren Filer in the home goal was brought into the action. Hutton’s defence of Nicole Badman, Eva Ferdinando, Hannah Capes and Georgia Ferdinando were playing with great composure and with Lauryn Nigh and Rachael Curtis pulling the midfield strings, Hutton continued to push forward in search of further goals.

Nigh and Filer combined to find Meg Lewis and her cross was met by Massey at the back post to score Hutton’s fourth of the day.

Hutton continued to have the better of the exchanges and another cross from Lewis caused confusion in the Banwell defence and Massey nipped in to complete her hat-trick. Hutton added a sixth of the half when Craig’s cross found Filer, whose shot was saved, but Lewis calmly stroked home the rebound.
