BRIDPORT Reserves extended their winless run to four matches as they fell to a Balti Sports side that claimed their first win in 11 matches in the Dorset Premier League.

Sam Handyside and Alan Hill scored for the Bees but goals from Ricky Lane, Phil Anderson and Oscar Preece secured the win for Balti.

Bridport were boosted by the addition of Hill from the first team, who did not play in their Les Phillips Cup loss to Shepton Mallet.

Hill secured a great start for Bridport when a gap opened up and he drove into it, before he fired a low shot into the right-hand corner past Balti goalkeeper Andy Nott after seven minutes.

Balti responded strongly when Liam Taylor put a through ball into Lane who finished excellently into the far corner on 10 minutes.

After an attempt on goal from Finn Cooper for Bridport, Balti countered quickly and scored a second goal with an identical finish from Lane as he restored the lead in the 18th minute.

Bridport drew level when Matt Condliffe struck a shot which was parried by Nott to Handyside who struck a right-foot shot into the net.

From a short corner, Danny Andrews chipped it into the back post and Anderson scored with a diving header with half an hour gone.

Shortly after, Andrews then fired in from the edge of the box to get himself a goal and widen the lead to 4-2 at half-time.

Lane turned provider for the fifth goal, popping a cross over for Oscar Preece to finish into the top corner to wrap up the match in the 60th minute.

Bridport manager Shaun Annetts said: “We were poor.

“I thought we had turned a bit of a corner at Christmas.

“We fancied our chances there but they were firing on all cylinders especially offensively.”

Balti host Hamworthy Recreation on Saturday (3pm) while Bridport Reserves are not in action until Wednesday, April 25 when they travel to Shaftesbury Town Reserves (7.45pm).
