Robertson stars as resilient Blues fight by on 4 occasions

Despite going down on 4 different occasions, the Blues gained a much deserved point in this top of the table clash...

The torrential rain wasn't enough to get this crucial game called off at Imber court. Both Weymouth and Met police are trying to keep their spot in the top 5. The blues also play Weymouth for the first time ever.

Weymouth grabbed the early goal from a wide area, where Baggie saw an opportunity to play Goodship through as he just poked the ball beyond debut keeper Mason.

Blues had a excellent chance to draw level after a cross from a corner met the overhead kick of Jack Mazzone, but only went as far as McHale's hands.

The quality corner of Knight met the flick on from Arthur to see Mazzone's high header tipped over the bar by McHale.

Blues nicked an equaliser seconds before the break after a free kick from King met the diving header of Robinson that reached the mouth of the net.

Weymouth regained the lead through a penalty deeply discussed by the ref and linesman after a foul on Brooks. It was converted by Goodship.

Half time: Met Police 1-2 Weymouth

After competitive football from the blues they found them selves with a way back in, after Knight received the ball on the left managing to put the cross in, that got nodded home by Robertson after rising above the defender.

The lead yet again was retained by Weymouth, after Mccarthy was put through at an angle only to put it across goal only to be placed in a free net by Goodship.

Met police saved their hopes after a fighting their way back since going down. A far ball met an unmarked Luke Robertson who was gifted a powerful shot by Weymouth that met the back of the visitors net.

Both teams gave their all to gain the win, but failed to create any worthy chances. But an entertaining game all round.

Weymouth went more defensively after bringing two attacking players off, for two defensive fresh legs.

The game calmed down for blues, but Weymouth continued to play through balls causing problems for the blues back line.

Blues had their hearts broken with not a lot of time to go, after the ball was pulled back inside the box by Odubade that was smashed in by Murray.

What an entertaining fixture as the game was brought level for the fourth time today. The talented through ball from Chislet gave Josh Webb space to cross that was met by Luke Robertson's head at the near post. To let him complete his hat trick this afternoon.

This tie ended equal in goals after a series of entertaining moments in front of 270 people. It was a deserved point from both sides.

Full Time: Met Police 4-4 Weymouth
