Portishead Town Ladies Reserves Remain at the Top After a 7-0 Win
Portishead Town Ladies Reserves Continue Their Unbeaten Start to the Season
Portishead Town Ladies Reserves hosted 3rd in the league Ilminster Town Reserves on Sunday in a highly anticipated game. Portishead Town put on the pressure from the start with the Ilminster goalkeeper making a number of saves denying Portishead Town of any goals. Portishead Town took the lead with a perfectly placed ball from Hannah Fletcher
through to Eloise Hubbard
to make it 1-0. Portishead Town continued the pressure which paid off from another Hubbard goal just before half time.
Ilminster Town started the second half returning the pressure Portishead Town had given them in the first half, however the strong and calm defence of Molly Yeatman, Catherine Evans and Vic Wright
denied any chances of any attacking runs through the back line leaving goalkeeper Fiona Hull little to do.
Fletchers runs down the left wing paid off when she cut inside and smashed home Portishead Towns 3rd goal, closely followed by Hubbards 3rd of the afternoon making it 4-0. Ellie Purle ran through Ilminsters defence beating off a number of players and hit the post which lead to Natasha Bridge
hitting home the deflected ball. Portishead Town pressed the ball from the Ilminster center kick leading to Bridge's 2nd goal of the game making it 6-0. Lisa Hills runs along the right win paid off with an accurate cross in to the box which Hubbard placed in to the back of the net to make it 7.
