Chapel Gate 10.02.24 – KO 2PM
Westland Sports were hit for six against a resurgent Bournemouth Sports on a pleasant sunny afternoon at Chapel Gate.
The hosts took the lead in the 12th minute when striker Sam Darlow powered home a header from an excellent cross by Karol Borowski. Bournemouth had most of the possession in the first half and were rarely troubled. Westland Sports were reduced to 10 men midway through the half when a player kicked out at Darlow.
Full back Matt Ellis went close to putting Bournemouth 2-0 ahead with a great solo run and shot that cannoned off the crossbar. At the other end and on a rare attack a Westlands striker saw his effort hit the side netting when in on goal.
In form Sports striker Sam Darlow would grab two goals just before half time, a shot inside the box and a header from a corner to grab his hat-trick and send his team 3-0 ahead at the break. HT 3-0
Sports started where they left off at the end of the first half when a through ball by Jamie Trimble saw Jack Voisey played in, but his shot was well saved by goalkeeper Sam Watts. However in the 51st minute Darlow would grab his 4th of the afternoon with another finish inside the box.
The hosts seemed to switch off for the next period and conceded two quick goals against the run of play. First of all from a free kick in the 54th minute a player headed home and in the 58th minute following some confusion in the Sports defence saw a player capitalise and score.
Bournemouth striker Jack Voisey raced clear of the Westland defence four minutes later and cooly fired past Watts to put the hosts 5-2 ahead before scoring again 3 minutes from time following a cross into the box by Karol Borowski and with his back to goal scored an overhead kick to complete an impressive display and performance from the men from Chapel Gate. FT 6-2
