Portobello travelled to Bristol this weekend to compete in the first BWPL weekend of the 2012 season. First up Portobello were up against Penguin and the Edinburgh boys held their own with a good win bagging 15 goals to Penguin's 12.

Porty then faced Cheltenham and were unfortunately defeated by 7 goals to 12, although the scoreline does not really reflect the way Portobello played. In reality the game was much more closely fought.

Last up were Invicta, and Porty's solid defence allowed them to cruise to a convincing 12-6 win.

Lancaster and Cheltenham would go on to win all their matches to take 6 points after one meet, Porty are solidly in the mid table in 4th position on 4 points.
