After losing the first game of the tournament, this proved to be their only defeat with five wins and two draws from their eight games, leaving them clear at the top of the table.

All of the squad members played exceptionally good football and positive forward play and determined defending took the girls through to their first tournament win.

Goals were shared around the squad members, who included Kaci Horner, Kerri Townsend, Charlotte Lewis, Megan Williams, Mel Heath, Eilidh Patterson, Natalia Bak, Zoe Collyer, Lauren Wall, with Lauren Small being named as McDonalds Weston player of the tournament.

Team Mendip Red won two and drew two, scoring six goals, conceding three and going through in second place.

The semi-final saw the two Team Mendip sides facing each other. Team White beat the Reds 2-1 and faced Frome Town in the final.

The final was physical from the start with both teams showing a desire to win. Frome went a goal ahead early on and led up until the last few seconds of normal time when Mendip’s Amy Clark broke free and smashed a stunning strike into the back of the Frome net levelling the game at 1-1 and forcing extra time.

The score remained tied after extra time so penalties were called for to settle the final.

Orritt and Flourentzou both scored before Frome missed their second and keeper Adem made a great save, making sure Team Mendip ran out tournament winners.

Team Mendip AP Heating player of the tournament went to Adem.
