Tormarton U18s travelled to fourth place Keynsham on a bitterly cold afternoon and played their full part in a entertaining game which ultimately left them returning home empty handed. 

In a match littered with mistakes on a sticky, muddy pitch, Keynsham took an early lead. Tormarton settled, found their rhythm and equalised through skipper Charlie Moore following a goalmouth scramble. Keynsham were concentrating their attacks down the left hand side and this brought about their second and third goals, with Tormarton equalising each time courtesy of Miles Theobald and a super header from Josh Timbrell following a corner. The half time 3-3 score line promised an entertaining second period. 

After the interval Keynsham gave themselves breathing space with two quick goals to lead 5-3 and although Tormarton applied significant attacking pressure, they could only manage one more goal when Ethan Lloyd slotted home after good play by Miles Theobald and Lewis Wynn. 

The result leaves Tormarton in mid table in the Bristol Under 18 Combination League with Keynsham moving up to second place with  the teams meeting again in their next fixture.
