Dorset Premier League: Sports continue fine form
11:22pm Tuesday 1st October 2013 in Non league football
MERLEY Cobham Sports continued their best start to a season since the early 1990s with a 2-0 home victory over Swanage Town & Herston.
In-form Sports climbed to second in the Dorset Premier League on goal difference after getting the better of the basement boys with two second-half goals.
David Weeden put them in front on 65 minutes and the points were secured when Stuart Cannie netted with a minute remaining.
Hamworthy United reserves were unable to build on a promising start as they suffered a 6-1 thumping at the hands of reigning kings Portland United.
A shock briefly looked on the cards when Dan Manual fired the Hammers into the lead on 25 minutes.
But within five minutes, hat-trick hero Joe Toghill had levelled with his first of the game, and his strike sparked a goal fest as Tom Carter, Lewis Clarke and Alex Halloran also got in on the act.
Hamworthy Recreation lost top spot and slipped to third following a 3-2 defeat at Parley Sports.
Parley registered their first win of the season thanks to goals from Jason Briten, Matt Newbery and Ben Bosley with Colin Dand netting twice for Rec, who were reduced to 10 men following the dismissal of Jamie Moores.
Ten-man Weymouth reserves claimed a 1-0 win at Blandford, while Shaftesbury moved into the top six with a 4-3 victory at Poole Borough.
Wareham Rangers secured a second successive win thanks to a 5-0 hammering of struggling visitors Cranborne. Craig Dunn and Duane Hobbs both struck twice, with Kevin Gill also on target.
Holt United and Sherborne Town reserves shared four goals. The Bulls battled back in the second half with goals from Paul Lane and Jason Lovell. Sherborne struck through Joe Smith and Jason Bond.
