City of Bath A 4, Bridgwater 5

BRIDGWATER made the journey to Bath and, with only three games left, the target was to win them all. 

Bath struck first but Bridgwater skipper Tom Lott hit back with his first of the day, then added another soon after.

A lapse of concentration near the end of the first half enabled Bath to draw level but, after the break, Bridgwater came out confident and Lott scored his hat-trick, which sparked a run of goals.

Bath levelled before Mulberry Threlfall-Eyres scored to put the visitors back in front.

It was soon all square again before Josh Gale hit the winner following a mazy run.

Man of the match: Tom Lott

This Saturday sees Bridgwater, who are fifth, host eighth-placed Taunton Vale B (2.15pm start).

Keynsham 7, Bridgwater B 2

PROMOTION-chasers Keynsham pressured from the off and only managed to breech the Bridgwater defence once in the first quarter. 

Bridgwater equalised through Rich Biddle on the right wing who, after running and beating the opposition’s best player twice, blasted a great shot past the keeper. 

Unfortunately, that woke up Keynsham and they scored two more before half time.

After the break, the game ebbed and flowed but Keynsham’s superior firepower made all the difference.

Sam Uminski capped off a fine performance with a scrambled goal.

Men of the match: Rich Biddle and Sam Uminski

This Saturday Bridgwater entertain Old Bristolians B (12.15pm).

South East 2
Bridgwater C 1,  East Devon C 4

THE men’s 4ths were well beaten by runaway leaders East Devon.

Despite the loss, they’re still set to finish strongly with a very respectable top four finish if they win their next two games.

The first of those is away to Taunton Vale D on Saturday (3pm).

South East 3
Bridgwater D 2, ISCA E 5

ISCA had an on-field advantage and were able to exploit a young Bridgwater side. 

The visitors opened up the scoring and were three up at the break, despite some good saves from Christian Durkin.

Bridgwater tried to strike first but Harvey Larcombe narrowly missed the target.

However, by half time ISCA were 3-0 up.

The second half started much brighter, with Bridgwater playing some good hockey. 

Sims tried hard, with great support from Toby Knight, Sam Thomas, Nikita Cernikovs and Matt Graham.

Ben Sims pulled one back and Durkin made some more fine saves, but ISCA capitalised on some Bridgwater lapses as they pushed forward.

However, Simon Burland had the final say for Bridgwater as the second half ended 2-2.

Taunton Vale 3rds 1, Bridgwater 4

BRIDGWATER opened the game with plenty of pressure on their opponents and were soon a goal up through Sapphy Reed-Yang.

Yang’s second came from great link up play in midfield - Laura Coles to Sue Chaplin and on to Lucy Burridge then touched in by Yang, which saw the ball in the net from just three passes. 

Bridgwater gave away a sloppy just before the break but it was all Bridgwater’s way in the second half.

Their third came from Laura Coles and the fourth was deflected in by Sheila Burridge from a strong cross by Coles.

Bridgwater move to fifth in the table with three games left, and they host top-of-the-table Winscombe on Saturday (10.30am).

Sedgemoor Division 2
Bridgwater 2nds 3, Taunton Vale 5ths 1

MIDFIELDERS Jenny Hayden-Briffet, Rose Baker and Danni Morgan set up this derby win, dominating their territory.

Bridgwater’s first goal came through Rose Baker but Vale enjoyed a fair amount of possession but were unable to capitalise against a stout defence.

Their second came from Jess Shobbrook and, three minutes into the second half, Shobbrook added another.

Vale reduced the arrears and Karen Chilcott had to make some vital saves to keep the visitors at bay.

Bridgwater held on to take the points with a great all-round team performance.

Player of the match: Tracy Gue 

On Saturday they go to White Eagles 2nds (11am).
