BLANDFORD United’s Dorset Premier League clash at Bridport reserves was abandoned after a broken leg sustained by Rob Way.

The contest came to a halt on 67 minutes when Way went into a challenge with Bridport’s Jake Mansley, with the sides level at 1-1.

Blandford had taken the lead through William Johnson’s penalty on 21 minutes only for the hosts to equalise just after the break through Kriss Radivojsa.

A statement on the league website said: “Our thoughts are with the player, we wish Rob well in his recovery.”

Goals from Alan Marsh, Asa Phillips, and Ben Satterley helped Merley Cobham Sports triumph 3-0 at home against Balti Sports.

Victory was Cobham’s 11th in the league from 19 games this season.

Nine-man Hamworthy United reserves saw their four-game unbeaten run abruptly ended with a 4-0 loss at home against Westland Sports.

Jordan Basing and Liam Lindsay both saw red for two bookable offences as Westland took advantage thanks to a Jamie Green double and goals for Henry Lawrence-Napier and Anthony Herrin.

Parley Sports went down 3-2 at the Avenue against Dorchester Sports.

The visitors fell behind to Jamie Symes’s early opener but fought back thanks to strikes from

Joshua Moody and Jack Voisey.

Parley could have made it 3-1 but Moody’s effort cannoned back of the bar before Symes drew Dorchester level just before the break.

And Symes completed his hat-trick for the hosts from the penalty spot in the second half to condemn Parley to defeat.

Goals either side of half-time from Dave Best and Cameron Beard gave Swanage Town & Herston a 2-0 success at Sherborne Town reserves.

Wareham Rangers remain rooted to the bottom after losing 5-2 at Shaftesbury reserves.

Aaron Merredew and Will Bartley netted what proved to be consolation strikes for the visitors.

Rangers have recorded two wins from 18 league games so far this season.
