Bournemouth Sports yet again scored late on too salvage a point from a somewhat feisty game.
The game was very open throughout with both sides creating plenty of chances. For the hosts striker Madison Wilkin almost scored in the first minute, but was denied by Dorchester Goalkeeper Nick Hutchings. Sam Darlow and James Bergin also went close in the first half as well.
Dorchester broke the deadlock in the 29th minute with a counter attacking goal following a Bournemouth Sports corner at the other end. Moreover the visitors went further ahead in the 36th minute when a cross evaded the Hosts backline to pick out an unmarked player in the box to finish off from close range.
The hosts grabbed a lifeline just before half time when Jamie Trimble was bundled over in the box following a corner resulting in a penalty which Sam Darlow calmly converted. HT 1-2
Into the second half and it remained an open game with the hosts Bournemouth Sports having the majority of possession and creating a number of chances. Dorchester only really threatened occasionally on the break.
With the game seeming to be beyond reach striker Sam Darlow finished superbly inside the box in the 96th minute following a cross from Karol Borowski to earn the hosts a well deserved point.
