Berrow FC 2
MENDIP were at home for this game and started brightly with good passing from the midfield of Abby Ewles, Onzia Lucas, Kayleigh Fear and Sophie Marks looking to bring the strike partnership of Roxy Newman and Sally Cooling into the game.
A Marks pass put Newman through on goal whose shot was parried by the Berrow keeper, but Marks followed up to score after just five minutes.

The Mendip defence of Alice Spearing, Charlotte Wright, Emma Morgan and in particular Beth Reasons kept out any form of attack that Berrow could muster and linked well with their midfield.
Much of the first half saw both sides cancelling each other out in all areas, until Fear played a great ball Cooling to out sprint the entire Berrow back four and score, but Berrow hit back right away with a good goal.

The second half saw an improved performance from both sides, with Berrow taking control of the game for long periods and scoring another goal again from good play for 2-2.
Mendip continued to battle and take the game back to Berrow, Marks and Lucas picked up the pace in midfield and showed good determination to win the game with good tackles and running. Lucas put a first-time ball in behind the defence and again Cooling showing great pace beat the defence to score the third. Mendip's keeper Coran Lockwood made a great point-blank save in the last minute to prevent Berrow from getting a share of the points.
