Goalless for girls

Hutton girls Under-13s were held to a goalless draw by Portishead.

HUTTON girls Under-13s travelled to Portishead with only 10 players due to the effects of Mother’s Day.

It was a stuttering start for both sides, but Hutton were first to show their attacking intent as they nearly caught their hosts on the break. Hutton’s central midfield pairing of Lauryn Nigh and Hannah Worley looked most likely to provide an opening and both Tia Craig and Meg Lewis were both denied by the home keeper.

Danni Williams worked hard on the wing, while the defence of Anya Lawrence, Georgia Ferdinando, Nicole Badman and Eva Ferdinando stopped everything that the lively Portishead attack could throw at them.

As the first-half drew to an end, a momentary lapse saw Portishead threaten, but Chloe Woods in the Hutton goal was swiftly off her line to avert the danger.

The second half saw Hutton having far more of the attacking play, but Portishead defended resolutely. Worley went close and moments later Hutton were again unfortunate when the ball again rolled narrowly wide.

Portishead continued to attack and Silvermoor Interiors player of the game Badman came to Hutton’s rescue with a perfectly timed challenge. With the game coming to an end, Craig was bundled over in the Portishead box, but with nothing was given and the game ended scoreless.
