For the first time in Southern Premier history, table-toppers Weymouth travelled to Dorset rivals Wimborne for a league game with both teams keen to add to their points total.
The opportunity to compare the league’s leading goalscorers, Toby Holmes and Brandon Goodship, attracted a large crowd. But the weather proved to be an integral part of the match with the wind howling down the pitch; and defences held firm.
The first incident came on the 16th minute when Luke Burbidge whipped in low free kick towards midfielder James Stokoe who just headed the ball wide to the left.
Luke Holmes fired a low menacing shot towards goal but the visitor’s keeper, Tom McHale, managed to parry out the ball over his head on the 32nd minute. On the 70th minute the wind took a toll on Weymouth’s Yemi Odubade as his shot was caught by the wind and headed towards the corner flag.
However, the home side used the wind to their advantage as they continuously fired towards McHale throughout the second half. Despite the torrential rain and the strong wind, both sides gave everything but neither team were able to fire the ball in the back of the net.
