Hutton girls Under-13s defeated Bristol Ladies Union with only 10 players.

HUTTON Girls Under-13s travelled to Bristol Ladies Union with only 10 players due to illness and injury and an entertaining game ensued.

Hutton started brightly forcing their hosts to defend from the beginning and with lone striker Rachel Curtis’ bustling play causing concern it looked like it wouldn’t be long before Hutton took the lead.

However, BLU defended strongly and restricted Hutton to a few half chances and when wingers Meg Lewis and Danni Williams did break through, they were denied by good goalkeeping.

Hutton continued to attack leaving keeper Chloe Woods a bystander for most of the first-half as Eva Ferdinando, Anya Lawrence, Hannah Capes and Georgia Ferdinando easily dealt with any threat BLU could muster.

The second half continued in the same manner with Hutton’s central midfield of Hannah Worley and Lauryn Nigh working tirelessly to set the girls on the attack, but BLU defending defiantly.

Woods was called into action to prevent a shot on goal and Hutton’s defence was starting to be stretched as the girls began to tire.
