BRIDPORT Reserves smashed five past Wareham Rangers in a big 5-2 victory over Wareham Rangers in the Dorset Premier League.

The result sees the Bees up to ninth in the table, and have games in hand over Portland United Reserves and Dorchester Sports above them.

The Bees got off to the perfect start, Jaydon Scadding crossed a ball in from a corner for Ryan Gall to head in after two minutes.

The corner itself was disputed, and Bridport Reserves boss Shaun Annetts later admitted he did not think it was a corner and believed it should have been a goal kick.

The lead was then doubled after 11 minutes, when a ball through from Harry Fleet found Josh Hunter, who clinically finished to the goalkeeper’s right-hand side.

Wareham were rattled and the Bees were in a very efficient mood, as Robin Jones netted a third after just 13 minutes.

Wareham did have their chances however, and a challenge from Dan Baggs gave away a penalty after 30 minutes.

However, this was struck firmly against the crossbar and away to safety.

Yet the Bees kept their 3-0 lead with them into the break.

The second half began on a difficult note for the Bees, losing Riley Weedon to a groin strain.

Yet Hunter pounced to widen the margin not long after, firing in his second and the Bees’ fourth after 50 minutes.

The Bees became complacent however, and Wareham grabbed a quick double to narrow the scores, netting in the 77th and 86th minute.

However, Gall grabbed his second to restore the three-goal cushion after 89 minutes.

After the match, Annetts was pleased with the result but bemoaned the concession of the two goals.

Annetts said: “I am pleased we were clinical, because I said to the players, the team are bottom of the league, we need to get at them and we need to get at them early and we need to put this team to bed early if we can.

“They did exactly what I asked, but then to concede two sloppy goals took the gloss off the result.

“Against better teams we would not have got away with that so much.”
