Hutton Under-16 Girls avenged an early season defeat by Keynsham Town with a comfortable victory.

Hutton Juniors Under-16 Girls entertained Keynsham Town looking to avenge an early season defeat and duly recorded a comfortable victory.

Strikers Robyn Perrett and Gabby Massey were quickly supported by wingers Cat Coates and Tia Craig as the Keynsham rear-guard were stretched. Hutton’s midfield duo of Phoebe Payton and Jodie Filer were quickest to the loose ball as the girls strived hard to open the scoring.

Keynsham were dangerous on the break, but struggled to find any fluency as the home defensive unit of Anya Lawrence, Eva Ferdinando, Meg Lewis and Georgia Ferdinando held firm, with keeper Lauren Filer increasingly becoming a bystander.

Hutton continued to press for an opening and forced a number of corners and from Jodie Filer’s delivery, Craig headed home to open the scoring. Another Filer corner was headed against the bar by Craig, while Massey struck the bar from the rebound before quickly reacting to fire Hutton into a two goal lead.

The second period was a more even affair as Keynsham’s physical approach disrupted the flow of the game and they pulled a goal back as replacement keeper Hannah Worley was beaten.
