Juniors 3 Town 2
Outstanding Juniors keeper ensures all three points....
Portishead Juniors under 14’s entertained Thornbury Town and found themselves behind within a few minutes. Some stunning saves by man of the match Joseph Sands
ensured the hosts remained in the game. Juniors began to find their feet with Jacob Brand
equalising on ten minutes after a clever headed flick by Jack Nattress
. Juniors shuffled the pack, then began to control the midfield through Jacob Weekes
and Louie Dun
. A minute before the break Isaac Rylett
found Harri Battista
on the edge of the box and he jinxed through the visitors defence to fire home. Juniors started the second half better with Jack Booker
going closest before the creativity of Ethan Monks
picked out Nattress for the striker to finish in style. The two goal lead was short lived as Town quickly responded to capitalise on a mistake. The hosts spent much of the remaining minutes defending well through Daniel McCorquodale
, Will Wade and Angus Jones
to secure all three points. A scrappy game on a heavy pitch which Juniors just edged, they only forced one corner in the final two minutes which somewhat summed up their day.
