Wells City U14 6 Timsbury U14 2
Wells City under-14s battled hard in driving rain to win at home to Timsbury.
It took 15 minutes before Liam Davies opened the scoring, calmly lobbing the keeper. Wells kept the pressure on with good play from Shaka Moody, Sammy Wilson, Oliver Glass and Tom Lafferty.
A Timsbury defender headed into his own net to double City's lead but the visitors fought back and took advantage of sloppy defending to reduce the deficit before half-time.

Play became more ragged in the slippery conditions but another own goal gave Wells breathing space, only for Timsbury to narrow the gap again.
The Wells defence of Louie Ellis, Scott Ricketts, Lyndon Hobbs and Oak Sheldrake ensured there was no way through again for Timsbury and City extended their lead when Nik Healy's through ball was finished off by Davies.
Sam Winkworth and Angus Panton combined to set up Davies for his hat-trick and he added a fourth in the dying minutes.
Wessex Dragons U12 1 Pen Mill U12 1
Wessex Dragons worked hard to earn a point at home to Pen Mill.
The back three of Hugo Dumontroty, Jamie Andrews and Toddy Di Giovanni did a great job of protecting keeper Jack Hoddinott, who saw a lot of the ball early on.
Mill hit the crossbar but Wessex also went close as Jack McCann's shot rattled the far post and came back across goal but no one was able to get a touch.
Luke Bird and Tom Helps also had efforts before half-time but could not break the deadlock.
After the break, the hosts strung some good passes together, with Ethan Boland- White, Charlie Case and Riley Bickham combining well.
Dragons took the lead when McCann's pacy corner missed everyone and crept in at the back post.
Mill responded quickly and headed home a corner from close range to level the scores.
The visitors had chances to win it but Jo Pitman and Keiran Holdsworth came on for Wessex and did well to hold Mill at bay.
Man of the match: Riley Bickham.
