HAT-TRICKS for Harding and Eardley helped Kewstoke Under-14s overcome Nailsea Athletic in a 10 goal thriller.

Kewstoke took the lead through Eardley, but Nailsea equalised and took the lead themselves, despite some great defensive work from Flynn, Richardson, Beckingham and Haskayne.

However, this was short lived with Eardley equalising immediately from the restart. Kewstoke finished the half strongly and were unlucky not to take the lead after missing a penalty and hitting the bar.

In the second half, Kewstoke thought they had a commanding lead after two well-worked goals from Harding, only for Nailsea to draw level with two great strikes from outside the area.

Kewstoke rallied and restored their advantage with Harding and Eardley both completing their hat-tricks. This was a tough game and Kewstoke were thankful to their defence for a great performance to restrict Nailsea’s chances and protect their advantage.

The Under-11s faced an in-form Priory Pumas in what turned out to be thrilling match.

Priory had the better chances in the opening stages, putting pressure on the Athletic defence, yet it was Kewstoke who scored first with Adam Bungay capitalising on a well-executed counter attack.

Priory responded well and found themselves 2-1 up within minutes, but Kewstoke never gave up and Sam Ford equalised just before the break.

As the pitch worsened, both teams struggled to keep possession and the game became a midfield battle, with Szymon Swierczyna putting in a great performance.

Despite some excellent work at the back from Andy Page Web Design man of the match Jack Howard and a second goal from Ford, the game finished 5-3 to Priory.

WESTON Crusaders Under-12s began slowly against Portishead, who were unlucky not to be in front.

Against the run of play, Havard found himself in on goal and scored, but Portishead responded quickly with two goals in as many minutes to lead 2-1.

The midfield of Ellis-Barker, Cox, Shipway, Santoro and Morteo could not get going and the defence of Bonner, Denyer, Rac and Buxton, although playing well, were over-worked and Filby in goal was disappointed with the two goals conceded. Portishead conceded a penalty after Thomas was fouled and Havard converted to draw the scores level. With five minutes remaining of the half, Crusaders began to dominate and Thomas put Crusaders 3-2 up.

After the break, Crusaders introduced Burgess in goal and re-shuffled the midfield. Crusaders scored again when Morteo was played through on goal after a superb pass by Buxton.

Rac then added a fifth after a thunderous shot from the edge of the box and Thomas got his second. The Portishead keeper made some fine saves in the closing five minutes to keep the final score 6-2 to Crusaders.

Crusaders man of the match was Lorenzo Santoro.

BANWELL Under-12s travelled to Churchill and made it nine league wins out of nine with a good 7-1 win.

Kaan Berk put Banwell one up when supplied with a fine cross from Syd Reames, with Berk volleying home. Ben Tucker stepped up to the mark with his best performance since returning to the club with a quick fire hat-trick.

Sam White made it 5-0 at half time with a penalty after the striker was felled in the box.

Banwell lost their shape in the second half after a few changes were made, but they added to their tally. Luke Maskell was involved in both goals, a nice one-two with White ended in White scoring a simple tap-in, then Maskell shot from 20 yards into an empty net.

Churchill were rewarded with a goal with a couple of minutes to go after a mix-up in the Banwell penalty area.

Special mention to the back four of Burns, Reames, Edwards and Vernon, who were marshalled well by Jordan Robinson in goal.

Supporters man of the match was Ben Tucker and the man of the match went to Syd Reames.

WORLE Under-13s were defeated 2-1 by top of the table Portishead.

Worle got off to a poor start and were 2-0 down after 10 minutes. After that Worle stepped up and showed why they were second in the table with some lovely football.

Lucas was controlling the game with great runs, passing and tackling.

This was giving Tom Stephens and JT the chance to get in the box, helped by Coggy and Alex Young playing well on the wings.

After the break, Worle’s good football continued and Tom Stephens scored a great goal to reduce the arrears. The final 12 mins were frantic as Worle hit the bar twice and had a goalmouth scramble, but could not find the equaliser.

Trowbridge Plumbing and Heating man of the match went to the whole team.

HUTTON Juniors Under-13s (current year 8 boys) are looking to recruit an enthusiastic goalkeeper for their Woodspring League side to play on Sunday mornings.
