Deflected shot gives Bradley Stoke the spoils over Bristol Ladies Union
BRADLEY Stoke Under-10s came out on top in a seven-goal thriller against Bristol Ladies Union Red thanks to a dramatic stoppage-time winner.
A corner floated in by Daisy Ackerman found Kayleigh Jennings on the edge of the box and the striker's shot hit a Union defender, who unluckily carried the ball over the line and into the net to bring to end an amazing game between two attacking sides.
Bristol Ladies had begun well and Stoke were thankful to captain Ackerman, Millie Eveleigh and Leah Powell for some strong defending, as well as keeper Zoe Maddock, who made two wonderful stops, while Olivia Hood and Lydia Tang were always a threat on the offensive.
Jennings had earlier handed Bradley Stoke the lead with an accurate finish, while Paige Fowler and Ackerman were their other scorers in a 4-3 victory.

Lawrence Weston Colts Girls Under-12s were on the attack from the start en route to a 2-0 victory over Bristol Rovers.
Hannah Price hit a post and Emma Anderson and Charity Morris both struck the crossbar with rasping 30-yard attempts.
With Madison Price, Abigail Price and Olivia Burton making good attacking runs down the wings, the first goal was duly set up for Sophie Price, who skilfully slotted the ball home.
Shortly after a slick exchange of passes between Madison Price and Hannah Price enabled the latter to finish well and make the game safe.
Becki Nash scored a last-minute winner for Brislington Under-15s as they returned from Gloucester City armed with three points from a 3-2 victory.
After a goalless first half, Emma Sims pounced on a poor clearance to put Brislington ahead, before Mia Williams converted a Nash cross to extend their advantage.
Gloucester responded well and the Brislington defence of Charlie Osborne, Abbie Nicholas, Casie Dixon, Cheryl Marvel and Yasmine Kassous was put under severe pressure.
Elanor Keys and Jarmaine Douglas worked hard to level up the scores for City, only for Brislington to snatch an exciting win with seconds remaining.
AEK Boco Under-13s' prolific striker April Scadding completed her fifth hat-trick of the season in a 5-1 win over Bristol Ladies Union. The 11-year-old is closing in on her record of 40 goals in a season and has just to score a few more to match that total she set two seasons ago.
In the GFA Girls Cup quarter-finals, Bromley Heath Girls U-14s produced an amazing footballing display to beat Cheltenham 7-0 away.
Heath flew into a four-goal lead by the break and added three second-half goals against a team currently heading their own league table.
Paige Botta, Ellen May, Ellie Todd, Rosie Williams and Charlotte Appleyard were excellent at the back while Jess Jefferies, Megan Wiltshire, Maddison Buss, Chloe Fuller, Lauren Penny and Rhiannon Fowler were unstoppable on the offensive.
Fowler, Penny and Williams each notched braces and Wiltshire scored the other, although Cheltenham battled right until the end and contributed to a great game.
