Portishead Town Ladies Reserves Remain Undefeated
Portishead Town Ladies Reserves travelled to Purnell Sports Reserves on Sunday for a hard 1-1 draw.
Portishead Town fort hard in the first half but neither team managed to break the defence. Injured striker Chloe Fensome was replaced by Lisa Hill who threatened the Purnell defence on a number of occasions with Mia Nestor and Eloise Hubbard looking to support.
The second half started 0-0 with Purnell coming out of the starting blocks with haste, but Portisheads defence of Catherine Evans, Vic Wright and Phoebe Sherborne were too strong for the strikers. Portisheads Hubbard and Lisa Hill kept Purnells defenders on their toes with their fast runs down the wing with Fiona Hull unlucky to make a connection in the box.
Portishead received a free kick inside Purnells half which saw Evans pick out Hubbard who made a cross for Hill to slot the ball away into the bottom corner.
Portishead continued to look for a second goal with Tash Bridge and Ellie Purle battling in central midfield. However with a Purnell shot from outside of the box to lob keeper Fensome, the game finished 1-1.
The Robert John Hairdressers Player of the Match went to Lisa Hill and Phoebe Sherborne.
