Chippenham 1sts 8, Bridgwater Men’s 1sts 2

BRIDGWATER travelled to top-of-the-table Chippenham on a high after winning twice last weekend, but that did not last long as they were 5-0 down inside 20 minutes.

Before half time Bridgwater pulled a goal back through Jordan Rawles, and the visitors improved in the second half.

Bridgwater were still to lose 8-2, though, with Kody Fludgate scoring their second goal from left-back.

Unless they can start marking better in the tougher games ahead this season, they will continue to be on the losing side.

Player of the match: Kody Fludgate

Bridgwater Men’s 3rds 0, North Somerset 2nds 8

NORTH Somerset started the better team and were quickly two goals up, and Bridgwater couldn’t get into the game as chances were missed.

The second half saw North Somerset score at will as the Bridgwater team capitulated.

Bridgwater were outclassed and need to think hard about how they approach the rest of the season.

Taunton Civil Service 2nds 3, Bridgwater Men’s 4ths 3

BRIDGWATER travelled the short distances to take on Taunton Civil Service 2nds.

The visitors took the lead from a well-worked short corner, initially well saved, before Mike Eele flicked the ball into the top left hand corner.

Civil Service levelled, then took the lead early in the second half, but Bridgwater equalised when Eele’s long ball was deftly deflected past the keeper by Pigden.

The scores remained level until 10 minutes from the end when Bridgwater again found themselves behind but, with minutes to spare, Steve Turvey scored to gain a well-deserved point.

Sidmouth & Ottery 5ths 9, Bridgwater Men’s 5ths 1

BRIDGWATER travelled to Ottery and started well, taking the lead through James Kettlewell.

However, this shocked Sidmouth & Ottery, who raced into a 3-1 lead with some woeful Bridgwater marking at the back.

The second period saw Sidmouth & Ottery put two more quick goals past the defence.

Despite some more goal line clearances and some quality saves, Sidmouth & Ottery exploited every gap and showed the Bridgwater young guns how to finish, putting three more into the Bridgwater goal.

Mendip 1sts 1, Bridgwater Ladies 1sts 0

BRIDGWATER started the first half positively against their high-flying opposition and were unlucky not to win a number of short corners and penalties.

However, the Bridgwater defence were soon put under pressure in their own D, with goalkeeper Amy Burridge making save after save until Mendip eventually opened the scoring from a penalty corner.

Despite both teams having chances in an end-to-end game, that Mendip goal separated the teams at the full-time whistle.

Sedgemoor Division 2
Bridgwater Ladies 2nds 2, Winscombe 4ths 2

BRIDGWATER attacked from the off and Danni Morgan was unlucky not to score, as her effort hit the post.

The hosts’ persistence paid off when they won a short corner, which resulted in Elesi Ryder scoring her first goal of the season.

Karen Chilcott and Kath Briggs then combined for Briggs to score the second and leave the hosts in control.

However, they were pegged back by two Winscombe goals and the match ended all square.
