Sherborne went into this game full of confidence after their last outing result against Cobham,The Hammers on the other hand were keen to get back to winning ways after their set back in the Trophy game against Holt. The home side took the game straight to their visitors and took the lead with their first shot on 45 seconds. This was courtesy of Ben Morris, who grabbed his second goal in two games finishing nicely after being put through by Pete Ireland. United responded well and equalised five minutes later after Sam Carter pounced on a loose ball in the Sherborne penalty area. Two minutes later Sam Carter scored again keeping his head to find the net after being put through on goal with just the keeper to beat. This meant three goals had been scored in the opening eight minutes. The Town got back into their stride, and were looking to
level things up, but missed a host of chances. Three of these came from headers following corners, and so the score remained the same at the break.
Sherborne came out in the second half still chasing the equaliser. Craig Royle nearly succeeded, but the Shane Cooper the Hamworthy keeper, who was in fine form all afternoon, kept him at bay. United scored their third when Sam Carter was once again put through on goal beating the offside trap to score his deserved hat trick on seventy minutes. Carter was then brought off to be replaced by the very promising Under Eighteen striker George Deem. To be fair, Town never really showed up in the second half and the visitors scored their fourth with a fine individual strike from all of 20 yards from George Deem to send the Hammers home happy. Hamworthy climbed the Table to half way with this result and if they continue with their improvement can look to go even higher.
