WEYMOUTH 5 BEAMINSTER 1
SOPHIE Foot chalked up a brace as Weymouth recorded a comfortable victory over Beaminster.
The hosts started this pre-season friendly with a new formation and created some good play down the centre of the pitch.
Their defence was also proficient in keeping the Beaminster attack at bay and stopping several short corners.
Despite their solid set-up though, they did not get the scoreboard ticking over until the second half when Foot finally opened the scoring from a penalty corner.
Linda Drewitt then added a second after a fine pass from Caitlin Dive before Foot made it three after some creative link-up play with Emily Austin.
Beaminster continued to battle but their opponents were now in full flow and two more short corners soon resulted in two more goals with Dive bagging the second of them.
However, the visitors did get a deserved consolation towards the end with a sweet strike from their striker as the game eventually closed at 5-1.
Weymouth: Emily Austin, Anneka Rogers, Jacqui Riddler, Sophie Foot, Berni John, Dervla Ireland, Lottie Crane, Caitlin Dive, Olivia Culbreth, Alex Hearn, Gina Huntley, Leify Hendricks, Lara Blundell, Gill Ore, Anna Dencher, Luce Bryne, Susie Stone, Chloe Van Crugten, Linda Drewitt.
Player of the Match: Caitlin Dive
