HUTTON Under-13 girls hosted Portishead Town and continued their good form with a convincing win.
Great wing play from Danni Williams and Meg Lewis stretched Portishead and with Rachael Curtis’ determined forward play and Tia Craig’s trickery, Portishead struggled to get a foothold in the game.
Hutton continued to dominate as Lauryn Nigh and Georgia Ferdinando were first to the loose ball in midfield and the opening goal came when Nigh’s cross was deflected past the visiting keeper.
Portishead responded well and started to test Hutton’s defence, but Anya Lawrence, Nicole Badman, Eva Ferdinando and Hannah Capes were in top form.
Hutton extended their lead after the Town’s keeper pushed a fierce free kick onto the bar, but Craig fired home the rebound and shortly after, Badman was first to react to a loose ball to make the half-time score 3-0.
Portishead came out for the second half with renewed determination and scored, despite good play from Orla Crabb and keeper Chloe Woods.
Hutton responded well and were driven on by Saskia Moore, before Nigh sealed a 4-1 win with a great finish.
Silvermoor Interiors players of the match was awarded jointly to Lauryn Nigh and Danni Willams.
