BEMERTON Heath Harlequins miserable run of results continued as they lost 3-0 at Horndean in the Wessex League Premier Division.

The visitors started the game really well and had the majority of possession for the first 15 minutes, but just lacked that bit of quality in the final third.

Shooting up the slope they defended very well and limited Horndean to a few half chances.

The only goal of the first half came following a defensive mistake which left the Horndean attacker Harry Jackson one on one and he made no mistake.

Bemmy did not start the second half well and Horndean killed the match within seven minutes of the restart.

The first came on the break from a visiting corner from Mark Smith.

Then shortly after a poor pass out of defence was intercepted by Jackson and again Horndean were clinical.

After this Bemmy kept going and on another day they could of easily scored a couple.

Bemerton manager Rae Hughes said: "It is a tough fixture even if we had everyone available, but with so many missing it was always going to be a tough task.

"There are absolutely no excuses though, the lads who started are all capable and did very well except for seven minutes at the start of the 2nd half.

"I have seen enough signs to know that the first win is just round the corner and we will start to climb the league very soon. We have been in this situation before and we know we have the players to get us out of it."

This Saturday, Bemerton are away at Hamworthy and then on Tuesday evening they entertain Shaftesbury both games are in the league.
