There was little in the way of fireworks at St Mary's today as a competent, well organised Cadbury Heath side outplayed a Bridport team that struggled to register an attempt on goal. In the opening exchanges, the Heaths Brad Abrahams sent a shot fizzing wide after eight minutes. Bees defender Sam Buckler
headed over with 23 minutes elapsed, but the hosts best attempt came three minutes later. Midfielder Chris Luke tenaciously fought for the ball, prodding it into the area for top scorer Ryan Dovell
to chase, only for a last gasp tackle to rob him as he caught up with the ball at the far post with the goal at his mercy. On the counter attack a move on the left wing switched to the right and found Nick Dyer, who curved the ball past Bees keeper Sam Filkins
from 18 yards. Ben Clarke
and Dovell had one good combined move thwarted on the half hour, before the latter was substituted due to injury.
Cadbury Heath looked to have doubled the lead two minutes into the second half, only for Rob Scott to be ruled offside. Bees captain Ryan Hayter
blocked a goal bound shot after 57 minutes, but other than Dyer seeing a shot fly back off of the bar with 65 minutes on the clock there was little goal mouth acivity, with the midfields firmly in control. The visitors seled the points with four minutes remaining when substitute Mark Cherry disposessed keeper Filkins and a defender to score from six inches.
