Dorchester Sports 1 Hamworthy Recreation 3

IAn excellent win for Rec against a very capable Dorchester side, for whom this was their first defeat of the season. After an average start to the game, Rec came alive in the final twenty minutes of the first-half and scored three times to lead at the interval. Despite missing some good chances in the second period and conceding a late goal Rec held on for the win.

The hosts came close when Sam Jones parried from close-range, with Rikki Walden clearing off the line and the ball bobbling along and hitting the post before being cleared. Rec's moves were breaking down in the final third, with the home defence never unduly troubled.

But as Rec settled they went in front on 35 minutes. Ash Boyt and Callum Charlton were instrumental in a fine move that ended with HARRY STOKES clipping the ball inside the post for 0-1. Just two minutes later it was two when Charlton, again, showed great control to tee up CHRIS LONG to slam in for 0-2.

Rec's third followed on 42 minutes in controversial circumstances. Another good move saw Long fouled in the build up, but he managed to nudge the ball to Boyt, who closed in on goal, but fired over from close-range. However, after consulting with his assistant, the ref brought play back for the original foul. Home protests were ignored and BOYT, having missed from yards out, promptly smashed the free-kick in from outside the area for a beauty. HT 0-3.

Ash Boyt was having a great game for Rec and could easily have claimed a hat-trick early on in the second half. First he crashed a shot against the bar after Charlton's shot had been blocked, then he robbed a defender, but blazed over.

Dorchester were struggling to create any real chances, but Jones made a vital block from a good attempt, before Rec conceded possession tamely in midfield to let the hosts pull one back, on 83 minutes.

With a nervy closing period in prospect Dorchester missed another chance, with a free header from a corner going over the bar. But Rec composed themselves and held out for an impressive win. FT 1-3.
