Match Reports for 20/12/2014

Blandford Utd 0  Merley Cobham Sports 5

Merley go nap again as The Royals crumble.  Goals from Luke Stone (27 minutes), Will Gage (35), Matt Steer (38), Aaron Atkinson (76) and Dave Wrixton (90+3) gave Merley the points.

Sherborne Town Res 0  Portland Utd 1

A weakened Portland left it late at Raleigh Grove, James Hansford scoring the only goal in the 83rd minute.

Parley Sports 3  Poole Borough 1

2 reds (both Boro players), 6 yellows and an aftermatch scuffle made this a memorable match for the wrong reasons.  A goal from Toby Holmes gave Parley an 18th minute lead only for Rob Teppett to equalise in the 74th. Sports immediately regained the lead through Matt Newbury before the same player wrapped things up with his 2nd in the 89th minute. Undoubtedly more will be heard about the less savoury aspects of this game.

Mere Town 1  Hamworthy Recreation 2

Rec gained revenge for their recent home defeat to the Moonrakers in what was a scrappy affair.  Jamie Moores put Rec ahead in the 51st minute only for the visitors to be immediately pegged back. Dom falco scored Rec's winner in the 75th minute.

Tintinhull 0  Wareham Rangers 4

Rangers eased to a satisfying win with 3 goals in the last 20 minutes. Richie Parsons gave them the lead in the 30th minute and so the score stayed until a 3 goal burst in 13 minutes (Adam Frohlich 72, Dave Best 75 and Jordan Basing 85) gave them a compfortable victory.

Westland Sports 2  Swanage Town & Herston 2

Second half goals from Leao Hayward and George Irvin for the hosts were cancelled out by a brace from Swanage's Adam Richards.

Sturminster Marshall 1  Hamworthy Utd Res 6

Last week's draw against Rec went for nothing as the Hammers swept into a 6 goal lead before Duane Hobbs scored an 88th minute consolation from the spot. The Hammers goals were scored by braces from Asa Phillips (35 & 55) and Oli Clayton (25 & 78) and a single from Nicholas Patrick.  Their 1st was an OG in the 10th minute.
