Uplyme 3
Perry Street & District League, Division Two
Att : 30
St. Mary's Playing Field, off Skilling Hill Road, Bridport
Admission : Free. Programme : No. Refreshments : No

For the second consecutive evening I opted for a game in Dorset and, although the venue couldn't quite match the scenic splendours of Kingston Lacy, it was nevertheless a very pleasant setting in tree lined St. Mary's Playing Field, immediately behind Bridport FC's ground where dressing-room facilities are used.

Plenty to play for here with already promoted Uplyme looking to win the divisional championship if they could, while third placed Pymore were still in the hunt to win the league themselves - given that the final game will be between these clubs at Uplyme on Saturday! Failing that, promotion in second place would certainly be an acceptable alternative.

Uplyme shaded the early stages and looked confident on the ball. A miscued shot from their number 10 when he was through on goal after 14 minutes kept the game at 0-0, but six minutes later the pressure told when the number 7 slotted the ball home after one or two defenders paused for an offside whistle that never came.

Further problems for Pymore arose when their keeper was injured and had to be replaced after 34 minutes by an outfield player. He was grateful to see the opposition's centre half head well over the bar just before the break.

Determined to get back in the game, Pymore mounted a promising attacking spell at the start of the second half and their number 11 produced the best goal of the match with a swerving shot on the run after 48 minutes. Shortly afterwards, the Uplyme keeper made a great save to keep out a shot from the home side's number 10.

Despite this good period, Uplyme reasserted themselves when the home defence failed to clear their lines and the ball came to the number 16 who executed the classic two touch finish and the ball was crashed into the net.

Two goals in a minute completed the scoreline. Pymore's number 10 was in the action again when he survived handball appeals to prod the ball over the line after 76 minutes. Then Uplyme surged forward from the kick-off and an ill-judged attempted tackle inside the area resulted in a trip and the inevitable penalty kick which the visiting number 10 converted with ease.

In the final desperate minutes Pymore threw everybody forward - including the replacement keeper who abandoned his goal entirely and hustled around the penalty area at the other end, even falling dramatically but quite rightly not achieving a last gasp penalty award!

Much celebrating from the Uplyme contingent and sporting congratulations from the Pymore side. I'm sure Saturday's game will not be short of incident either, so maybe I'll be heading there instead of Netherbury!
