Match Reports

Hamworthy Recreation 1  Sherborne Town Res 1

Played away from Magna Road due to continued waterlogging, Rec switched the venue and in part came up short against a dogged Sherborne side. 0-0 at the break, Sean Bartlett gave the hosts the lead in the 57th minute only for Cian Cabel to equalise 5 minutes later. Both sides went looking for the winner, only to be denied by tremendous saves from both keepers.

Cranborne 3  Sturminster Marshall 1

Cranborne secured another deserved win, so keeping up their excellent recent form, but they had to come from behind to do so. Liam Cullen gave Stur the lead in the 7th minute, only for Ollie Hepworth to equalise for the Cranes in the 38th. Into the 2nd half, and Ollie Reynolds-McGowan put the hosts in front in the 70th minute and, with time running out, Reynolds-McGowan got his 2nd and Cranborne’s 3rd to secure the points.

Weymouth Res 5  Hamworthy Utd Res 3

In the battle of the 2nd strings, it was the hosts who ran out winners after an entertaining game at the Wessex Stadium. The Terras opened the scoring in the 5th minute through Josh Tennant and on 16  Syzmon Matuszewski doubled their advantage. Jamie Beesley made it 3 in the 34th minute and a minute later Tennant helped himself to his 2nd and Weymouth’s 4th as they completely dominated the 1st half. Into the 2nd half and Lee Sharpe made it 5-0 in the 65th minute. To Hamworthy’s credit, they never gave up and reduced the arrears in the 70th minute through Nicholas Patrick, 3 minutes later Ollie Clayton got their 2nd. The Hammers continued to press for further goals and Connor Cochlin got their 3rd in the 87th minute to add more respectability to the score line.

Poole Borough 1  Westland Sports 2

In a feisty encounter, Westland’s secured the points with this odd goal in 3 win at The Moor. Borough started brightly and took the lead in the 18th minute trough Dan Frisby only for Josh Payne to restore parity for Sports in the 37th minute, with half time looming Lewis Howchin scored the all-important winner for Westland’s in the 42nd minute.

Match Reports for 21st

Tintinhull 3  Parley Sports 10

13 goals, 4 penalties, this game had it all as Parley ran up a cricket score in Somerset. Dan Hiscock opened the floodgates in the 3rd minute with Toby Holmes doubling the lead in the 15th, Hiscock made it 3 in the 33rd whilst Holmes made it 4 in the 38th. Matt Newberry made it 5 from the penalty spot in the 45th. Holmes completed his hat trick when converting another penalty in the 52nd minute. Joe Smith pulled one back for the hosts in the 60th minute, again a penalty! John Cook notched the visitors 7th in the 67th minute, Holmes then got his 4th and Parley’s 8th in the 70th. Moments later and Gary Mountford reduced the arrears when scoring for the Tinmen in the 72nd minute. Back down the other end Josh Pratt got the visitors 9th in the 75th minute. Again Tintinhull pressed and another penalty, the game's 4th, was converted by Smith - again - in the 83rd minute. Still Parley pressed and the League’s leading goal scorer claimed his 5th of the match and Parleys 10th when converting in the 84th minute.

Westland Sports 1  Portland Utd 1

The Islanders dropped more points in their quest for the title in a match that could have seen them lose all 3 points had Westland’s converted a last minute penalty. 0-0 at the break, Sam Beard put the hosts in the lead in the 70th minute only for Adam Linaker to restore parity 2 minutes later. With both sides searching for a winner the home side were awarded a penalty in the 89th minute, up stepped Sam Carney who blasted the resultant kick over!

Sturminster Marshall 1  Merley Cobham Sports 6

Merley maintained their position at the summit of the League after this routine thrashing of basement boys Stur marshall. Ace marksman Luke Stone scored their first 4 goals in the 1st half with the home side’s Callum Parsley scoring for the hosts. Into the second half and further goals for the visitors came courtesy of Sam Steer and Dave Wrixton.

Blandford Utd 3  Swanage Town & Herston 2

For the 2nd week running the Swans were on the wrong side of a 5 goal thriller as the Royals got the better of them. Ashley Ayley set them on the way when converting a controversial 4th minute penalty only for Jacob Harrop - for the visitors - to equalise in the 44th minute. Ayley restored the hosts lead in the 64th minute and Paul Ford got their 3rd in the 68th. Swanage continued to press and got themselves back into the game courtesy of Tony Parrots 88th minute goal. However Blandford held on to claim the 3 points.

Hamworthy Utd Res 1  Poole Borough 2

Borough maintained their recent upturn in form by winning their local Derby with a Hammers side who played their part in an entertaining encounter. Darryl Williams scored twice for the Hornets in the 1st half in the 7th & 45th minutes only for Ollie Clayton to pull 1 back for the hosts in the 85th minute to set up a nervy ending for the visitors. However, they held on to take the points home the short distance to the Moor.
