Hutton girls Under-13s were narrowly defeated by Keynsham Town.
HUTTON girls Under-13s entertained second-placed Keynsham Town to try and gain revenge for their heaviest defeat of the season.
Hutton started well and soon had the ball in the visitors net when Tia Craig prodded home after a defensive muddle, only to be ruled offside. Keynsham started to test the home defence, with Chloe Woods in the Hutton goal continuing her recent good form.
Nicole Badman, Eva Ferdinando, Hannah Capes and Georgia Ferdinando worked tirelessly to restrict the visitor’s powerful attack to half chances, while Lauryn Nigh and Saskia Moore, ably assisted by Anya Lawrence and Danni Williams continually set Hutton on the counter attack.
Hutton took the lead midway through the half after Rachel Curtis’ persistence enabled Nigh to fire home. Keynsham were rewarded with a fine goal to make the half time score 1-1.
The second half saw Keynsham attack constantly without creating any clear cut chances, with Hutton responding on the break. As the half looked like ending in a stalemate, the visitors got the slice of luck that won the game when a Hutton clearance struck a defender and ricocheted back into the net.
With time running out, Williams was brought down on the edge of the visitor’s penalty area with the resultant free kick being hacked off the line to safety.
Referee Anthony Badman controlled the game well, with Chloe Woods being awarded Silvermoor Interiors player of the match.
Hutton girls are close to starting their second team and are actively looking for enthusiastic Year 5 or Year 6 girls who want to play football. Contact Ian on 07835 243616 or Jen on 07414 096126 for further information.
