Bridgwater 1sts 4, Bristol UWE 1st 2

BRIDGWATER kept the pressure on top side Old Bristolians as they defeated Bristol UWE.

The early exchanges were equal and keeper Pete Saunders and his defence kept UWE at bay.

Todd Barrett then seized on a loose pass and Will Pope slotted home the first goal.

UWE responded quickly, but Pope and Barrett combined again to enable Barrett to put his side back in front.

Barrett put Bridgwater further ahead via a deflection and Paul Bond picked up on another defensive error to make it 4-1.

The damage was done and, although they conceded a second goal, Bridgwater ran out deserved winners.

A fine through ball from captain Kettlewell found Steve Miller, who broke the deadlock.
