Resounding victory for Hutton girls

Hutton Under-18 Girls overwhelmed opponents Dursley Town in the first group game of the GFA League cup, running out 13-1 winners.

Hutton Juniors Under-18 Girls visited Dursley Town in the first group game of the GFA League Cup and came away with a resounding 13-1 victory.

The Hutton girls took the game to their hosts from the outset, forcing a number of early corners before Gabby Massey opened the scoring heading home Jodie Filer’s flag kick.

It was not long before she added a second which was quickly followed by Cat Coates’ powerful shot to give the girls an early 3-0 lead.

Tia Craig’s decisive wing play kept the tempo of the game high with her strong running, while Filer and Phoebe Payton were the quickest to any loose balls in the midfield areas.

Dursley tried to get a foothold in the game, but were comfortably denied by Hutton’s defence of Anya Lawrence, Meg Lewis, Courtney Raynard and Josie Cherson, leaving Lauren Filer in the Hutton goal a virtual bystander.

Hutton continued to press forward and Payton’s shot from the edge of the box beat the overworked home keeper. Robyn Perrett added Hutton’s fifth before Massey added a further three to give an 8-0 half-time scoreline.

Positional changes for the second half slowed the momentum towards the home goal for a time while the Hutton girls settled back into the game, but the Dursley goal threat had diminished.

Perrett started the second half scoring before Filer, Coates and Massey took the score to 12. Cherson was denied her first goal for the club after another flowing move as an earlier infringement brought back play, before Dursley grabbed a late goal with a lofted shot that Lauren Filer had little chance to prevent.

Hutton then contrived to miss three presentable chances to extend their lead further before Coates wrapped up the scoring.

McDonalds player of the game was awarded to Phoebe Payton, with the EMS supporter’s award going to Cat Coates.
