Cranborne 2 Portland United Res 7

Sunday 12th November 2017

Portland United Reserves climbed in to 4th position in The Dorset Senior League on Saturday as they despatched relegated Cranborne although the visitors were made to work hard in what was a tight first sixty minutes.

The Blues went in to the break at 2-1 as Che Curran bundles the ball in the net after Sean Zimas header has rebounded off the crossbar and Shane Evans deft lob after a good passing move. Portland were caught napping as Cranborne pulled one back right on the stroke of half time.

Josh Camp grabbed the 1st of his 4 goals before Cranborne made it 3-2 with a fine solo goal but that would be as good as it got for Cranborne as Josh Camp added another 3 goals and Dean Taylor scoring when put through 1 on 1.

Looking back at the game Portland United Reserves Manager commented "That was a comfortable victory in the end, but we didn`t have it all our own way and for 60 minutes it was closer than it probably should have been. We were guilty of missing some good opportunities, it maybe should have been 4-1 at half time. The second half they just couldn`t live with us, the substitutes all made an impact and Josh Camp getting 4 goals which he will be delighted with."

Faulkner also added "We made a poor start this season but we have recovered well, still plenty of games and plenty of hard work left but to be 4th having played 7 games and of them 5 have been away and we face our 6 away game in 8 next Saturday. We are getting stronger as we move through the season which is pleasing and we look forward to next week."
