Kick Off 15.00 Actual 14.50

Balti Sports 2 Portland United 7,  attendance 52

@ The Thomas Hardeye School, 3G Pitch

Queen’s Avenue



No admission or programme.

The early kick off this morning meant plenty of time to get to a second match, even allowing for very heavy holiday traffic on a fair bit of the A31.

Balti Sports finished last season as runner up in the Dorset Premier League. Portland United were champions of the Wessex League Premier Division, which is two levels higher.

Portland missed a penalty, which was well saved, then found themselves 1-0 down, but levelled at 1-1 just before the break. It was 1-4 after 70 minutes and despite a Balti goal on 76 minutes, Portland added another three goals for a resounding win.

Andover Town v Downton

@ Sparsholt College

Westley Lane



SO21 2NF

No admission or programme.

This game, between two teams from the Wessex League, never looked like producing a goal, but after Andover (Premier Division, with Downtown in Division 1) scored after 52 minutes the game opened up and it was 3-1 just eight minutes later. The final goal came five minutes from time.
