FOOTBALL: Matty Peart stars but Portland Town hit for six
PORTLAND TOWN U18s 0 HAMWORTHY UNITED U18s 6
PORTLAND Town got hit for six at home by high-flying Hamworthy United after being reduced to 10 men in the second half.
The islanders fought hard throughout but the Hammers had too much quality on the day and deserved their win.
A defensive lapse allowed the visitors to take the lead before a great team effort added a second just moments later.
Another effort then clipped the crossbar as the visitors threatened to kill the game off in the opening half-hour.
However, Portland continued to battle and almost pulled one back when Matt Dunlop had a shot well saved following combination play between Floyd Musson and Danny Clifford.
Edd Barber also went close for the islanders while Matty Peart tipped over another Hamworthy attempt at the other end.
After the break, Portland began brightly with Dunlop and Musson both threatening but when the Hammers added a third on 64 minutes the game was all but over.
To make matters worse for Town, they then lost substitute Brad Davis to a red card following a debatable penalty decision.
The visitors tucked away the spot-kick and then went on to add two more.
They also won a second penalty but on this occasion Peart pulled off a terrific save. Ricol Leisure Man of the Match: Matty Peart
