BELOW PAR ABBOTS SUFFER OPENING DAY DEFEAT

Oldland were outclassed from the off as the visitors raced to a five goal half time lead with the hosts having no answer to Portishead's pace and direct play.

In truth,Oldland made it easy for the visitors as time and time again they found themselves with too much time on the ball and their incisive passing was rewarded with five first half goals. The Abbott's seemed unable to track any runners from deep and with Portisheads players finding far too much space in the the box they were two up after just seven minutes.
The Abbott's did start to get themselves into the game with Amy Street firing wide with just the keeper to beat and Romany Cochrane glancing a header just wide. It was on 33 minutes when Oldlands Laura Garlick deflected a shot that was going wide past helpless Oldland keeper Jayde Holcombe.
Oldland conceded two more goals before half time to finish a sorry half.
To their credit, the Abbott's put up more of a fight in the second half and they kept the score to 0-0 over the second 45 minutes although Holcombe made several fine saves once more.
Captain Vicky Mundy nearly scored a consolation goal when her goalbound header from a Jade Scammell corner was somehow turned away by the away keeper.
A performance that was woeful in the first half but a little more disciplined in the second but massive improvements are needed over the coming weeks.
