Best Double Secures The Points

By Swanage FC

3 away points....................

Blandford United 2 Swans 3
Swans secured all 3 points with a 3-2 away win against Blandford United in The Dorset Premier League.

Keeper Dan Beeston produced a great save after 3 minutes and apart from the hosts hitting the post the Swans controlled the first half and deservedly led 2-0 at half time with goals from top scorer Paul Best following a superb pass from Parslow, then the maker became scorer when Elliot Parslow hit a speculative shot that nestled in the far corner of the net. H.T.0-2.

The Royals seemed more determined in the second half and produced some good chances, however the Swans gave the hosts a lifeline with a defensive error which Mark Ford took advantage to score from close range for 1-2 and game on.

The home side were now pressing for the equaliser with several near misses but it was the Swans who increased their lead when skipper Paul Best completed his brace and seventeenth goal of the season with a great finish from close range following a superb cross from Atkinson. The Royals never gave up and Ben Oxtoby reduced the arrears to produce a tense finish but the Swans held firm for the 3 points.
