BRIDPORT Reserves were knocked out of the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance Senior Trophy as Blandford United claimed a 2-0 victory in their quarter-final at Park Road.

Due to flooding at St Mary’s Field, the match was switched to the home of the unbeaten Dorset Premier League leaders.

And the Royals duly started briskly with a goal in the second minute courtesy of Jack Satterley after the Bees’ defence failed to cut out George Coleman’s pass.

Both sides struggled with conditions in the first half but the second period was far more eventful.

Niall Dixon embarked on a mazy run and supplied ex-Weymouth striker Mark Ford who was brought down by Jaydon Scadding in the box for a penalty.

However, experienced goalkeeper Mark Cuff saved the Bees’ bacon with a superb stop from Ford’s spot-kick.

Bridport were still bang in the game and chasing an equaliser until an error from Cuff, clearing straight to Ford, allowed the striker to run through and seal the victory in stoppage-time.

Blandford join Sturminster Newton, Holt and Wimborne Reserves in the semi-finals.
