THERE were goals galore as Bemerton Heath Harlequins drew 4-4 at high flying Hamworthy United.

The home side took the lead after 20 minutes, but Bemerton equalised as an excellent cross from the impressive Jake Rawkins was powered home from close range by Kelvin Robinson.

Hamworthy regained the lead shortly after and it soon became 3-1.

Bemerton hit back again, Rawkins picked up another assist, as he fed Jordan Matthews, who finished well inside the left hand post.

Unfortunately, the home side added a fourth, but the scoring was not over in the first 45 minutes.

Jake Rawkins picked the ball up just inside the home side's half, beat three defenders and slotted the ball in to the bottom right corner.

Bemerton came out on the front foot in the second half adamant not to defend like the first.

A Rawkins' free-kick was somehow kept out and then the home goalkeeper saved a point blank shot from Robinson.

Shortly after, Jack Slade rose highest at the far post to head home only for the goal to be disallowed for an off the ball incident.

The visitors continued to dominate and got their deserved equaliser, with literally the last incident of the match, skipper Jake Burgess rose like a salmon at the back post to level the scores.

Manager Rae Hughes said: "Well where do I start, it was a shocking defending performance in the first half. I don’t mean just the back four, as a side we didn’t work anywhere near what is expected out of possession.

"Both sides looked like scoring every time they went forward. Credit to the boys though we were excellent in the second half and in my opinion should of taken all three points. Hamworthy are a decent side though so it was a good point.

Bemerton are next in action on Thursday away at Fareham. On Saturday they are at home to Team Solent and on Wednesday April 25 they are away at Horndean. They finish their season at Baffins Milton Rovers on May 1.
