Swans Win With Best Hat-Trick

By Swanage FC

Hat-trick and sent off.............

Swans 4 Dorchester Sports 2

Swans won a deserved 3 points against visitors Dorchester Sports at Day's Park in The Dorset Premier League after a late scare.

Swans returned to winning ways with a positive start and took the lead after 18 minutes with a superb goal from skipper and leading scorer Paul Best (pictured above) winning the ball and chipping the keeper with a superb shot. Swans deservedly doubled their lead when just before the interval Paul Best completed his brace with a header following a cross from Garip. H.T. 2-0.

Manager Tim Brown introduced new signing Charles Daries as a second half substitute and it took the french man only 5 minutes to make an impression when he created the third goal for his side with Paul Best completing his hat-trick. Swans took their foot off the gas and the visitors scored 2 goals in 2 minutes to cause a nervous finish for the hosts, however it was the home side who secured the points with a minute remaining when debutant Charles Daries finished well following good work from substitute Landers. The win was tarnished when outstanding performer Paul Best was harshly sent off following a challenge on a Sports defender Pat Thomas.

Tim Brown was delighted with good performances from debutant keeper Ben Hodder and striker Charles Daries
