TEN-MAN Bridport Reserves conceded six second-half goals as Hamworthy United Reserves stormed to a 6-0 win at the County Ground.

Adam Herring’s Bees were left to ponder a red card for substitute Brandon Thorpe at 0-0, leaving Hamworthy free to dominate the second half in the manner they did.

Up to Thorpe’s dismissal, the Bees nearly led when Antony Carlile’s shot whistled past the post, while the Hammers went close when evergreen keeper Mark Cuff saved from Tadgh Case.

Just before half-time, Thorpe was shown a straight red for bringing down Brandon Williams when last man and Hamworthy never looked back.

The Hammers needed just eight minutes of the second half to open the scoring, albeit in fortuitous circumstances, as Neemo Nixon’s prodded effort took a heavy deflection past Cuff for 1-0.

Nixon doubled his and Hamworthy’s tally on 55 minutes when he darted inside and let fly towards the bottom corner, his shot too powerful for Cuff’s outstretched glove to keep out.

The floodgates were now officially open as Case collected a half-cleared corner on the edge of the box and shaped a tremendous shot beyond Cuff for 3-0.

Hamworthy had squandered 3-0 leads against Balti Sports and Dorchester Sports in recent weeks but a youthful Hammers side made no such mistake on this occasion.

Nixon made sure of the victory by snapping up a hat-trick goal, running clean through before ruthlessly beating Cuff.

Tymoteusz Famurat’s accurate finish made it 5-0 and Nixon turned down an attempt for a fourth personal goal when he ran through and squared for Case to notch his brace.

Herring’s men, who remain in 14th, travel to Chapel Gate to face Bournemouth Sports on Saturday (3pm).

Bees: Adler, Baker, Baggs, Carlile, Cuff, Day, Etherington, Kamara, Leader, Mansley, Steele. Subs used: Burwood, Coombs, Gee, Taylor, Thorpe.
