A crucial match against third place Bournemouth turned into a goal fest for Weymouth. Only a few minutes after the start of the game, Ellen Dewey stole the first goal to get the ball rolling. Weymouth battled on and tallied up the score sheet to an impressive 6-0 by half time. Goals from Foot, Drewitt, Stuart-Smith, Butcher and Squibb left the away side extremely comfortable and confident for the second half. Bournemouth continued to make penetrations into Weymouth’s half throughout the game, but were quickly closed down and repelled by Weymouth’s solid defence. Some excellent play on the right side by Emily Bloxham and Ellen Dewey resulted in two quick goals from Squibb and Drewitt. The final nail in the coffin came from a short corner strike from Butcher, which nutmegged the home keeper to finish 9-0. A great win considering Bournemouth’s 3rd placing in the league tables. Weymouth now dominate channel division 1 and remain 6 points clear at the top of the table. They face bottom of the table Wimborne Wayfarers II on Saturday, home at Redlands, 12.30pm.
