Hutton Girls Under-13s defeated Portishead 4-2.
HUTTON Under-13 girls entertained Portishead Town on a heavy pitch and went into an immediate lead when Rachel Curtis netted.
As the girls piled on the pressure, Lauryn Nigh and Hannah Worley were first to every loose ball in the midfield. Wide players Hannah Capes and Nicole Badman worked tirelessly to feed the forwards and it wasn’t long before Megs Lewis put Hutton 2-0 up.
Portishead forced a string of corners as the match flowed from end to end, but Hutton continued to look strong as the half ended.
Portishead started the second half strongly, but came up against a Hutton defence of Danni Williams, Eva Ferdinando, Orla Crabb and Georgia Ferdinando in good form. As the visitors pressed hard, Hutton broke quickly and Badman extended the home lead.

Chloe Woods in the Hutton goal had to be alert as her defence was broken, but soon after she could do little to prevent Portishead scoring and was injured in the process and had to be replaced.
Portishead pulled another goal back shortly afterwards to set up a tense finish. It was Hutton’s Capes who remained the calmest player on the pitch to score with the last kick of the game to make the final score 4-2 to Hutton.
