Portishead had the majority of possession in the first half with Catherine Evans, Aimee Falla and Eloise Hubbard creating the chances down the wings with the Cheddar goal keeper denying each shot.
Second half saw Portishead geared up for the much needed win, with Ellie Howard scoring her first of the afternoon early on, closely followed by a second. Ellie Purle made some strong runs through the Cheddar defence but was unfortunately denied by the Cheddar keeper.
Cheddar kept battling for a goal, hitting the cross bar in the second half but failed to convert a goal through the strong portishead defence, Alice Kerr, Gemma Bryant and Vic Wright and a clean sheet was maintained from the two keepers, Chloe Fensome and Fiona Hull.
Evans made a fast run along the right wing finished with a shot in to the bottom corner to make it 3-0, with Howard making her hatrick close to the end. Portishead will travel away to Hamilton next Sunday
The Robert John Hairdressing player of the match went to Ellie Howard for her 2nd hatrick in 2 games.
