WEYMOUTH 3

SALISBURY 4

WEYMOUTH were beaten by title contenders Salisbury on an icy day on the south coast.

The home side were looking to replicate their success at Salisbury earlier in the season when they came out victorious.

Both sides started brightly with Weymouth holding the majority of the possession, but their failure to capitalise on the chances created would ultimately prove costly.

In contrast, Salisbury were extremely efficient in possession, as they bided their time and scored the opener after some excellent play.

Frustration was clearly brewing for the Seasiders, with left-back Michael Westlake pushing the umpire, and receiving the first of many cards in the game.

Salisbury took advantage by scoring with a delightful chip over the keeper from 15 yards, only for Weymouth to rally and get one back through Matt Underhill to make it 2-1 at half time. Despite the Seasiders strong end to the first half it was the away side who retained control, scoring two quick goals to put them into a commanding position.

Salisbury retained control with some excellent controlled passing, however, a series of defensive interceptions led to Weymouth hitting back to 4-3.

Weymouth battled until the end but an organised Salisbury defence held on for victory.
