In the fifth minute Worthing had a huge chance to open the scoring. Odei Martin Sorondo carved open the Weymouth defence with an elegant through ball for Reece Myles-Meekums. Unfortunately for Worthing’s number 17, who started the game brightly he was unable to beat Gerard Benfield.
Odei was at it again causing problems ten minutes later as his effort struck the post after a slick Worthing move; powered by Sonny Fish.
On the half hour mark The Rebels deservedly took the lead! Fish showed his class as he rounded the keeper after beating Weymouth’s offside trap, before cutting back onto his left foot and finding the far corner!
Two minutes later Fish had the chance to double the lead! Bullying his way out of the defender’s clutches, the striker latched onto a neat knock down from Ricky Aguiar before firing over the bar.
On the verge of half-time Fish fried The Terras’ defence once more; bursting in behind at speed. However, his low driven effort flew just wide of the mark.
The Mackerel Men came out for the second half with the same attacking mindset and it resulted in similar dominance to the first as they created chances.
Fish came close in the 59th minute, however it was Aguiar who would double the scoring from the penalty spot with composure just a minute later when Hinshelwood’s men won a penalty following a corner.
The visitors tried their best to get back into the game, however they couldn’t beat the determined Roco Rees.
Leo Hamblin had Weymouth’s two best efforts. First, in the 68th minute the forward won a free header inside the box – only for it to sore straight into the arms of Rees’. Next, Worthing’s number one had to get down low in style minutes later to deny Hamblin once more; plucking the ball out for a corner.
Weymouth’s resurgence was halted with ten minutes left to play as Teddy Howe saw red for a second bookable offence after receiving a second yellow card for dissent.
Ultimately The Rebels were able to see the game out with ease; creating more chances for themselves while limiting The Terras’ too.
Weymouth remain mid-table, while the three points for Worthing cemented their spot firmly at the top of The National League South; rounding off a very positive Bank Holiday weekend!
