Weymouth Football Club’s senior men’s team made it 3 National League South wins on the bounce beating Dartford away by a solitary Joe Cook goal to nil.
Our Man at the Match said,” A great result for the Terras who produced a much improved display that came after the half time break and Weymouth could have scored more goals, however they will be happy with the result as it is and 3 more league points in the bank”.
Dorchester hosted Plymouth Parkway at the Avenue Stadium and thought they had snatched the result as late as in the 89th minute when Shaq Gwengwe placed the ball into the back of the Devon side’s net only for it to be ruled out by the referee for a foul on the visitors keeper so the match remained goal less.
Portland United went down by a goal to nil at Grove Corner at the hands of visitors AFC Portchester, but Bridport managed to return to Dorset after drawing 3 goals each at Bovey Tracey although the Bees lead the game at one stage by 3 goals to 1.
Riley Weedon netted a brace for Bridport with Breydan Jones adding a third goal.
In the local rugby Weymouth & Portland made the short trip to Bestwall Park to lock horns with Swanage & Wareham.
The game went almost the same way as it did when the 2 sides met at Monmouth Avenue earlier in the season with the Seahorses leading at half time and the Swans coming back after the break to win with the final score 37 points to the Swans and only 22 to the Seahorses.
The visitors crossed for 3 tries, one each from Casey Perring-Hogg, James Davis and Jacob Brunell with centre James Baker kicking 2 conversions and a penalty.
Dorchester overwhelmed this guests Corsham winning by 46 points to 22 at Coburg Road, Bridport won at Brewery Field beating Wimborne second team by 57 points to 7, Blandford travelled to Lytchett Minster and returned to Greenfields after losing the game by 23 points to 10 and Puddletown won away at Chapelgate beating Bournemouth third team by 54 points to nil.
On Sunday Weymouth Football Club’s women’s team played Ridgeway Ladies at Redlands and won the game by 5 goals to nil with goals from Emily Screen 2 and one a piece from Lucy Roberts, Charlie Wilson and a Ridgeway own goal. The Terras’ Ladies’ Development squad drew 1 goal each with Longfleet Ladies their score coming from Zara Hunt.
Bridport Ladies lost by 3 goals to 2 at home against visitors Burnham, the Bees scores courtesy of Laura Tatershall and Florence Valinski.
