Bradley's brace sees Ingleside overcome Clifton
INGLESIDE Under-11s edged a close game against travelling Clifton Blacks, but they were made to battle all the way for their 3-1 victory.
Charlie Turner opened the scoring for Clifton on ten minutes, finishing off an excellent passing move, and Ingleside had keeper Giddeon Brown and defender Adam Monks to thank for making sure they didn't fall further behind.
Clifton also missed a penalty in the first period and they were made to pay for it as Ingleside managed to equalise just before the break through Joel Bradley's fine individual goal.
Ingleside took control in the second half with the outstanding Rioul Scharschmidt dominating midfield, although Clifton were always dangerous on the break and Brown had to save another penalty with the score at 2-1 to the home side courtesy of Del Piero Ross' goal.

Three minutes from time, Bradley, with his second of the game, settled Ingleside's nerves by adding a third for his team.
Meanwhile, Thornbury Town outscored Southmead in a 15-goal thriller to claim the points with a 9-6 success.
Town pushed forward from the first whistle with Cameron Salmon and Michael Gowie both looking dangerous on the flanks, while Ewan Bishop kept it tight at the back with some useful clearances.
In the end, five goals from Sam Flawn, a Chris Webbe hat-trick and a Leighton Tuodolo strike saw Thornbury safely home, having at one stage seen their early 2-0 advantage overturned as spirited Southmead roared back to lead 3-2 at the interval.
Golden Hill Sonics Under-14s players dedicated their 8-2 A-Division victory over Southmead to their midfielder Liam Buckland, who is recovering from heart surgery.
Sonics led 5-2 at half-time thanks to Josh Parsons' four goals and Eddie McGee's effort, which were replied to by strikes from Jacob Walsh and Danny Wilkes for the visitors.
After the interval Rob Grant, James Noakes and Harrison Jackway, with a fine header, hit the target to ensure Sonics were comfortable winners.
In the B section, Iwan Hughes fired a hat-trick and Matt Dillistone claimed a double as Bishopston United B moved into second spot with a routine 5-0 win over Ingleside Colts.
In the Bristol Under-18 Combination, Bristol Central leaders DRG Stapleton were given a major fright before emerging 4-2 victors over bottom side Bromley Heath.
Goals by Finbar Money and Daniel Price had fired struggling Heath into a 2-0 lead inside the opening half hour, and they would have added more but for some fantastic saves by Kristian Summers.
Instead, DRG roared back to level by the break through Kareem Burton's finish and Arthur Cheophell's 30-yard wonder strike, before two second-half Jed Fields goals ended brave Bromley's resistance.
Roman Glass adapted to the heavy conditions better than visiting Southmead CS as they eased to a 7-2 success with efforts by Ashley Jackson, Sam Futcher, Liam Payne (2), Tom McGloan, Luke Healey and Adrian Nadason, who created their first two goals. Lewis Cox and Callum Malpas netted Southmead's consolations.
In Bristol North, Frampton Rangers secured an exciting 5-4 come-from-behind win over Bristol Rovers SC thanks to four fabulous Aaron Turner strikes and a Ben Woods goal. They had to achieve it the hard way as Rovers had led 2-0 through Ben Waldron and Ben Haggerty and then 3-1 via Joe Thomas' direct free-kick before Frampton's successful fightback. Waldron later struck a second for Rovers to make it 5-4 and set up a tense finale.
Kingswood made a slow start against a ten-man Bradley Stoke side who were further reduced to nine men approaching the break, but they proved too strong in the end for their depleted opponents to run out 5-0 victors.
