Hutton girls keep unbeaten record

Hutton Under-15s girls’ unbeaten run was stretched to eight games after a 5-1 victory over Bristol Ladies Union.

HUTTON Under-15 girls’ entertained Bristol Ladies Union in an attempt to extend their unbeaten start to seven games, including friendlies.

The girls once again started on the front foot making BLU defend in numbers to prevent them going behind and only some smart saves from the visiting keeper kept the scores level.

Hutton continued to press with both Lauryn Nigh and Jodie Filer creating openings for Tia Craig and Robyn Perrett to exploit, before Nigh’s pass put Perrett in the clear and her cool finish opened the scoring.

BLU were struggling to contain Hutton’s slick play and Filer’s corners were a constant threat, before Craig’s header extended the lead. BLU responded well from the setback and as half-time approached, they pulled a goal back from a quick break, giving Lauren Filer in the Hutton goal little chance.

BLU started the second half well as Hutton were slow to start and were unlucky not to equalise as indecision struck the home rear guard. This stung Hutton back into action and Nigh restored the two-goal cushion.

With the home defence of Hannah Capes, Georgia Ferdinando, Nicole Badman and Eva Ferdinando now back in command, wingers Danni Williams and Jazz Hurrell were able to push forward to create further chances and Gabby Massey came close, before Meg Lewis’ long-range effort left the visiting keeper stranded.
