SHOLING ended Bemerton Heath’s unbeaten run, as the Hampshire side came out 4-0 winners.

Bemerton Heath went into this game flowing with confidence after being unbeaten in five matches, the points were much needed after a shaky start to the season. Sholing themselves were in a rich vein of form, confidently sitting in third position in the league.

Both teams started the game well and cancelled each other out for the first half an hour of the game. The game however swung into Sholing’s favour, in the 32nd minute a dangerous corner was delivered into the Bemerton box for Byron Mason to head home.

Unfortunately for Harlequins they didn’t learn from this and just six minutes later, Cuthbertson headed home powerfully completely unmarked.

Bemerton were in a difficult situation losing 2-0 at half time and in an attempt to get a foothold back into the game they introduced Slade to try and reduce the deficit. Bemerton did carve a few opportunities, however they could not find the end product on this occasion. Sholing pushed on and eventually got their third of the game with a fantastic strike into the right corner from just outside the box.

The fourth and final goal of the game came from yet another corner when Sholing’s captain rose highest and headed home.

Manager Rae Hughes was disappointed with his side’s inability to defend from set pieces, and said: “Our defending at set pieces today was unacceptable at any level of football. Sholing have beaten us comfortably without opening us up once.

“They are a very organised, powerful unit who did a very professional job on us today.”

“We didn’t do the dirty, horrible side of Football today which is disappointing as it is this that has seen us pick up points recently. It’s important we regroup and move on quickly whilst learning from this.”
