DORSET Dockers claimed top spot in Dorset & Wilts One South after securing a 38-0 victory at Puddletown.

Both sides started positively in tricky conditions, but Dockers strong pack started to take control.

Front row trio James Cameron, Matt Pieterse and Tom Smith led a push over try for Jordan Cutler.

Neat interplay from brother Peter Davies and Donald Wharton resulted in the latter scoring under the posts. Tom Keir added the extras.

Wharton was on hand again to touch down his second score minutes later, with another Keir conversion.

The final play of the first half saw 17-year-old Oli Mowlem skip inside a couple of defenders for a well-taken try and a 24-0 half-time lead.

Puddletown showed some fight back, however resolute defending from Jon Vickery and Neil Ketchley thwarted the attacks.

Christchurch-based Dockers soon found another score when Oli Cummins sent Ketchley on a 50m run beneath the posts. Keir delivered the conversion.

Cutler touched down his second unconverted try to provide the final score in the closing stages.

  • NEW Milton fell to a narrow 17-13 defeat against Hampshire Premier rivals Eastleigh II.

In wet conditions, Milton created early pressure and scored first with a penalty kick from Adam Lavis.

The hosts responded immediately through their forwards, who pushed for the line and touched down for a converted try.

Zac Smith restored a slender one-point lead for Milton before half-time when he crossed the whitewash.

Milton started well after the break. Scrum-half John O'Regan caught the Eastleigh defence off guard with his run on the narrow side before touching down in the corner.

Eastleigh battled back with a converted penalty kick of their own to reduce to three points the gap between the two sides.

New Milton were penalised again, but this time Eastleigh decided to take a five-metre lineout, which they pushed over for a crucial second converted try.

Milton attempted to wrestle back the lead again, however they failed to find a decisive third try.
