RESERVES HIT FOR SIX

Tuesday 23rd November.............to complete a dismal weekend for the club the reserves were drubbed 6-1 by Tisbury in the Dorset Senior League on saturday. MATT DARBY scored a cosolation goal for Sports in an afternoon to forget.


CUP EXIT COLLAPSE

Monday 22nd November.............Sports were dumped out of the DPL Cup on saturday losing 5-1 away to Hamworthy Recreation. Westlands were on the back foot from the start and if it hadn't been for the heroics of goalkeeper Sam Stroud we could have been a couple of goals down in the first 15 minutes. It was a welcome surprise then when Sports took the lead after 20 minutes in our first real attack of the game. We forced a corner out on the left and when the ball came over MALIK KAMAL rose at the front post to glance a perfect header into the far corner. It was backs to the wall for Westlands for the rest of the half but some solid defending and some poor finishing by Hamworthy saw us go in at the interval 1-0 up. A blow for Sports happened just before the break with skipper Adam Barratt hobbling off with a hamstring injury, being replaced by Luca Martin. We knew Hamworthy would come out fighting so hopefully Westlands could keep it tight defensively and frustrate the home team. However the worst possible start to the half followed as Rec equalised after one minute's play. We gave the ball away in our own half and were punished, 1-1. Sports replied with a Luca Martin header that bounced over off the top of the crossbar but in the 50th minute the home team went in front after an attempt to pass the ball around on the edge of our own box ended in disaster, 2-1 Rec. Four minutes later a soft free kick on the edge of the box was dispatched into the far corner to make it 3-1. Sports were reeling now with huge gaps appearing in the middle of the park which Hamworthy were quick to exploit. In the 60th minute their #5 ran about 30 yards with the ball and set up his team-mate who made it 4-1. Three minutes later, with Sports all at sea they made it 5-1. With about 25 minutes left it was a bit concerning but Sports managed to regroup a bit and there were no more goals.

MoM is Sam Stroud who had a top class game and showed he was up for the fight.

Line-up: Stroud: Plumley, Trevett, Chorley, Howchin: Barratt, McCabe, Kamal: Payne, Ormrod, Ewens. Subs: Martin, Park.


SPORTS SHOOT SIX ON ROAD

Sunday 14th November.............another high scoring week for Westlands yesterday in the Dorset Premier League with a 6-1 win at Corfe Castle. Liam Samways was a surprise selection in goal for Westlands, and there were starting places for Sam Plumley, Freddy Chorley, Olly Crisp and Tim Trevett. Sports were passing the ball around quite nicely and the opening goal came after only 15 minutes when TIM TREVETT came up from the back and headed in a Duncan McCabe free kick. In the 22nd minute it was 2-0 after a mighty scramble in the Corfe box. Several shots were blocked before SAM PLUMLEY finally thumped the ball into the net through the crowd of players. Corfe's best moments came when they pumped long balls forward which were causing the Sports defence a few problems. So much so that the Westlands defence changed from a back 3 to a more familiar back 4 after about half an hour. The game developed into a bit of a stalemate for the rest of the half which ended 2-0 to the visitors.

The second half was only 5 minutes old when Westlands grabbed the crucial 3rd goal and a tremendous solo effort it was. ADAM BARRETT chased down a Corfe back pass, robbed the keeper of the ball and smashed it into the empty net. A great example set by the team captain and his team-mates responded well. Two minutes later, DUNCAN McCABE just got his foot to a bouncing cross and lobbed the advancing keeper to put Sports in an almost unassailable 4-0 lead. After another 2 minutes it was 5-0. After a slick passing move, FIN CAULDWELL cut in from the left and from 18 yards drilled a low shot into the far corner of the net. A three goal blitz in 5 minutes by Westlands had now put the game out of sight at 5-0. In the 80th minute the referee spotted a shirt tug in the box and STEVE ORMROD belted in the penalty kick to make it 6-0. At this point we were hoping Liam Samways would get his clean sheet as he had made a couple of good saves, but it was not to be. In the 80th minute a bit of a misunderstanding between a Westlands defender and the keeper was punished with a looping header that finished in the back of te net. That made the final score 6-1 and a good win for Sports. MoM is Duncan McCabe who ruled the midfield all afternoon.

Line-up: Samways: Green, Trevett, Chorley: Plumley, Barratt, McCabe, Crisp, Howchin: Ormrod, Cauldwell. Subs: Payne, Woollard, Park.
