The Bradley Stoke Youth FC (BSYFC) Under-11 Girls remain unbeaten after their 6-2 win over Longwell Green Whites on Sunday morning.
The game, which was held at Patchway Community College, kicked off in windy conditions which affected the game throughout.
The home side got going early when Zoe Jones hit a wonder-strike into the top of the net just minutes after kick off; this was after the first goal got the scoring on its way when the ball rolled into the net just out of reach for the keeper.
This was closely followed by some excellent team play from the girls which ended in Olivia Hood getting the next with a fantastic assist from Lydia Tang, who then got the fourth herself with an excellent finish.
It all looked set to be a perfect half for the Bradley Stoke side but Longwell Green were able to capitalise on a slight defensive error to squeeze in a goal of their own before half time.
Millie was the next to put the ball in the back of the net for the Bradley Stoke side; she took an excellent touch to set her up for a fantastic shot that found its way into the bottom corner for the first goal in the second half.
Longwell Green were the next to have the ball in the net as they claimed their second goal of the game, but they could not keep up with a fantastic Bradley Stoke side who managed to get a total of six goals over the course of the game, Olivia and Esme scoring the two goals for Longwell Green.

The A Team did not have a game at the weekend so it left three of the Saturday sides to bring home the points, but sadly they were not able to do so.
The B Team, although being 3-0 up in the game and looking impressive, were not able to stop a Broad Plain side equalling the score and going on to win the game 7-3
The First Team had a disappointing game against The Ridings Reserves as they lost out to one goal. The scorer, debatably, could have been sent off earlier in the game. A tackle on Bradley Stoke’s Tom Harris only brought a yellow card from the referee’s pocket however Bradley Stoke had defender Craig Potter sent off for two yellow cards in the last five minutes of the game.
The Reserve Team didn’t have the best of games at Patchway where they faced Sneyd Park in the cup. They managed to get one goal through Adam Sykes who leapt higher than anyone else and headed past the goalkeeper. They too, however, could not keep up with the scoring of Sneyd Park who eventually won the game 5-1.
