BEMERTON Heath Harlequins continued their recent good form in the Wessex League Premier Division with a comfortable 4-1 victory over struggling Petersfield Town.

From the first whistle Bemerton were on top, finding space and causing the visiting defence problems.

However, for the first 20 minutes they were unable to convert any chances and it was the visitors who took the lead against the run of play.

On a rare attack the Petersfield forward was bundled over and the referee awarded a penalty which was finished well by Danny Thompson. From this point on though it would be all Bemerton.

They were soon awarded a penalty of their own when a Petersfield defender handled on the line.

Seb Dawes stepped up and finished well.

They got their a second shortly after when Jack Slade reacted first in the six yard box to poke home.

The second half was completely dominated by Bemerton but it was not until the 65th minute when 18-year-old Jordan Matthews scored the goal of the game.

Cutting in from the left hand side and curling his shot in to the bottom left corner of the goal from outside the box.

More chances came and went but it was the returning Jake Rawkins who came on as a substitute who scored the fourth with a mazy room in to box and slotting home.

Manager Rae Hughes said: “It was a good win against an improving side, we took a little while to get going but once we did we played some decent stuff. Petersfield played much better than their position in the league suggests so it’s nice to get the three points and move on.”

This Saturday, Bemerton now tenth in the table are away at Sholing and then on Tuesday night entertain Bournemouth.
