CHEDDAR Valley became the latest to run into an in-form Weston Crusaders Under-12 side that swept them away with ease, winning 13-0.

Goals came from a Thomas hat-trick, Havard Shipley, Rac, Morteo (2), which meant the game was effectively over by half-time as Crusaders hit eight.

Changes were made at the break with Bonner and Redding coming on and still Crusaders were relentless. Further goals came from Morteo, who completed his hat-trick, Denyer, Rac, Ellis-Barker and Havard completed the scoring, making the final score 13-0 to Crusaders.
