BEMERTON Heath Harlequins moved up second in the Wessex League Division One table after beating visiting Andover 4-2 on Tuesday night, , writes DAVID HEATHER.

Andover dominated the first half, but glaring misses meant that they were only level 2-2 at half time, as Justin Bennett scored both Harlequins goals.

After the break it was much more even in fact Harlequins started to run the game and it was no surprise that they eventually ran out winners with two more goals from Scott Hassell and Ryan Lewis.

Bemmy are at home again on Saturday when Petersfield are the visitors.

Last Saturday, Harlequins exited the FA Vase after losing in extra time 2-1 to visiting runaway Wessex League Premier Division leaders Alresford

Alresford started strongly and took the game to their Division One hosts straightaway.

Good defending and a magnificent save from Dan Kempson kept them at bay.

Harlequins gradually got into the game and after 15 minutes took the lead when Danny Finnegan took advantage of a defensive mix up to score.

Chances went begging at both ends the most glaring miss coming from Justin Bennett when he was clean through only to shoot wide.

Alresford equalised on the stroke of half time when Mason headed home a cross from the left.

The second half was even and no side looked in control extra time was looming and sure enough

it was to be.

Alresford took the lead in the first period courtesy of a very hotly disputed penalty from George Hallahan. Kane O’Keefe was sin binned for disputing the decision.

Harlequins then laid siege to the Alresford goal Eddie Perrett, Scott Hassell and Bennett all going close but to no avail in what was an a very good and unlucky performance
