Battle of the keepers ends with Coalpit Heath coming out on top against Fry's
COAPIT Heath Under-16s put in another stirring performance to beat Fry Colts 1-0 in a pulsating Division One match.
Colts keeper Harry Edgell and his opposite number, Sam Wilmot, pulled off some superb saves as both teams went on all-out attack.
Heath's Frankie Vaughan was denied twice and there were superb displays from Ashton Coleman and James Bracey in the Coalpit midfield.
With five minutes left, Heath finally broke the deadlock when Vaughan laid the ball off for Luke Burman to strike a left-footed shot into the bottom corner to decide the match by a solitary goal.

Dan Notley struck twice and Louis Pratt, Josh Cottrell, Liam Crew and Cian O'Mahony netted the rest in Keynsham Town Colts Under-16s' exciting 6-4 success against local rivals Oldland in Division Two.
Keynsham Town Under-14s produced a terrific display to overcome Fishponds 5-3 for their fifth win of the second division season. They broke the deadlock on 20 minutes through Olly Townsend following a fine Matt Owen pass.
But Keynsham missed many chances and Fishponds capitalised with Kieron Wood netting on the brink of half-time.
Fishponds snatched an unlikely lead after a quick counter attack led to Hamza Khander finishing well, and only a superb diving save from Mason Bean denied them going 3-1 up.
Instead, on 55 minutes, another Owen cross was met by George Rooke in the box to bring the scores level and minutes later Rooke netted again from a Ben Sainsbury delivery.
Rooke completed an eight-minute hat-trick to put Town 4-2 up and although Matthew Woodward pulled another goal back for lively Fishponds, Jasper Mumuni netted with virtually the last kick of the game to end their comeback hopes.
Ashton Boys Under-14s' perfect start to the Division Three season continued with a comfortable 5-1 victory over Bradley Stoke.
They had to come from behind to achieve it after Stoke had snatched the lead. Solid performances from Liam Chard and Jack Sanderson gave Ashton the platform to equalise through an acrobatic Ben Pope volley on 26 minutes, before a Sheldon Chappell brace ensured a healthy 3-1 half-time lead for the home team.
Staunch defensive displays from Ollie McGauley and star man Ellis Tremlett kept the score the same until the 65th-minute mark when Gudjon earned a penalty which was coolly converted by Jack McMichael.
There was still time for a 25-yard thunderbolt from Ashley Ballard to complete the scoring.
Two second-half goals ensured Avon Athletic Under-12s came out on top after a tough Division One tussle with travelling Keynsham Town.
Keynsham created the best of the early chances, Toby Cooke shooting wide when through one-on-one while Harrison Peacock's shot, after good work down the right by Oscar Derrick and Adam Smale, was somehow clutched on the line by Avon stopper Louie Osborne with the aid of his right post.
Osborne's opposite number Charlie Kelly pulled off one excellent save early on, but had few scares in the Keynsham goal, as Avon's lone striker Daniel Winstone was superbly marshalled by defenders Brendon Barry, Sam Harris and Charlie Stacey.
Avon snatched the lead with a penalty ten minutes into the second half after the referee spotted some pushing inside the box. Winstone stepped up to slot home and the skilful attacker later finished off a good move down Avon's right to secure the win.
Daniel Young was outstanding throughout for Keynsham in a holding midfield role.
Broadwalk Under-12s bounced back from the previous week's disappointing 1-1 draw with Coalpit Heath by playing some of their most attractive football of the season in a 7-2 success over Ashton Boys.
Terrific strikes by Jordan Lee-Waters, Keegan Thorne, Mitchell Sully (2), substitute Cody Vile (2) and star man Ross Hopkins, who hit the goal of the game with an inch-perfect lob from the halfway line, ensured Broadwalk kept to within one point of Shirehampton Colts at the top of Division Two.
Whitchurch B Under-12s battled their way to a 3-0 win over Bromley Heath in a well-contested Division Four tussle.
Church took a 20th-minute lead via a well-struck free-kick from Daniel Thomas, while Wayne Okutu was unlucky not to increase it when his shot rattled the bar. But Bromley Heath were unfortunate not to equalise early in the second half when they fired a penalty wide of target.
Whitchurch increased their lead when Kyle Lovegrove's shot was parried by the keeper and the loose ball was tapped in by Finley Roberts.
Church keeper Jack Pringle made some excellent saves to keep his side in front before Daniel Thomas sealed the points with another free-kick in the final minutes.
Also in Division Four, Ashton Boys Under-12s secured an impressive 7-0 win against an organised St Nicholas Colts side. The Broad Plain House-based team snatched two early goals when Louis Carter's deflected shot found its way into the net and Caillou Proctor fired a raking shot through the hands of keeper Jayden Hover.
Saints battled on gamely, but were prevented from creating any chances by Ashton's defensive line-up of Casey Quick, Mohamoud Ahmed, Finlay Edwards, Louis Gardiner and Cameron Parker.
Two more Proctor goals, to completed his hat-trick, and efforts by Ayan Azad (2) and Jaigo Edwards sealed an emphatic Ashton win, helped by strong midfield performances from Tony Grinnall and Milo Sellick, while substitute keeper Joe Collinson made several excellent saves.
Ethan Ansell grabbed all three goals as Stoke Lane Under-12s returned to winning ways in Division Five with a 3-0 away win over Winterbourne United. It was an excellent team performance by Lane with Sam Haskins and Harry Collett in particular enjoying superb games, while Dan Laver was in inspired form between the sticks.
Keynsham Colts Under-12s gave Division Five leaders Frampton Rangers an almighty fright. Visiting Frampton were defending a 100 per cent winning record, but Town gave as good as they got and were unlucky not to take a point.
An even first half finished 1-0 to Frampton and, although Town started the second half well, an early second goal for Rangers suggested they'd secure another comfortable win.
However Keynsham roared back and a Charlie Payne goal and a powerful Josh Abrahams free-kick brought the scores level.
Two goals in the final five minutes broke Keynsham hearts, although their disappointed manager, Chris Young, expressed pride in his team's efforts.
Ashton Colts Under-13s grabbed their first win of the second division season after a tight tussle with Longwell Green. They took the lead through Archie Jefferies following good play by Max Hogg, and for long periods after that they played some fine football.
They were dealt a setback, though, as Longwell equalised with a penalty awarded for a handling offence, Tom Frankcom making no mistake from the spot.
Ashton began the second half with purpose and they reclaimed the lead through Charles Hendy after he had fastened on to a great pass by midfield dynamo Kyle O'Driscoll.
Longwell hung on in and equalised for a second time, from a twice taken free-kick drilled into the corner of the net by Frankcom.
Yet again Ashton forged in front when a cross from the impressive Hendy was turned into the net by Jefferies.
This time they clung on for the points.
