Hutton girls Under-14s reached the county cup semi-finals after beating Wells City 6-1.

HUTTON girls Under-14s travelled with only 10 players to Wells City in the quarter-final of the county cup and put in a fantastic performance to run out 6-1 winners.

The visitors took the lead when Rachael Curtis and Georgia Ferdinando combined to set up Tia Craig for the first goal.

Craig, Curtis and debutant Jazmine Hurrell were a constant menace to the Wells defence and with Robyn Perrett and Ferdinando controlling the midfield areas, Hutton doubled their lead when Craig scored again.

The Hutton defence of Eva Ferdinando, Nicole Badman and Megan Lewis played with great assurance, leaving Chloe Woods in the Hutton goal a bystander.

The Under-12s visited AEK Boco and enjoyed an eight-goal thriller.

Boco took the lead in the opening five minutes and Kerri Townsend in the Hutton goal had to be alert as Boco created chances almost at will. However, Ellie Burrows set up Lauren Wall for the equaliser.

Boco responded immediately and only good defending from Kaci Horner, Paige Nigh and Charlotte Lewis kept their hosts at bay, but they could do little to prevent Boco from taking the lead just before the break.

The second half saw the Hutton girls spring into life from the outset and within minutes from the restart they were level when Wall again struck from distance, before good work by Amelia Seaton and Megan Williams set up Mel Heath to score.

Boco again came back strongly and equalised following a corner. Hutton responded well and Wall outpaced the home defence to restore the girls’ lead, but Boco struck from distance to draw level again.

McDonalds Weston player of the game was awarded to Lauren Wall.
