Team Mendip Under-16s were held to a draw by Cheltenham Spa.

WITH not many matches being played due to waterlogged pitches, Team Mendip Under-16s opted to try out @Worle’s 3G pitch for their home match against Cheltenham Spa.

Mendip started off well only allowing Cheltenham to shoot from distance with no luck, but on the half-hour mark, one shot was spilt by Mendip’s goalkeeper and Cheltenham were quickest to react and score the only goal of the first-half.

After the break, Mendip made a few tactical changes and it wasn’t long before a great cross from the right was buried by Emily Wightman. Soon after, Cheltenham came back and scored after a defensive mix-up.

Mendip battled back and with two minutes to go, Lacey Bell crossed from the right, which Charlotte Cooper controlled and fired in for the equaliser.
