Torquay United 1-5 RTC Dorset
RTC Dorset progressed to the next round of the U14 League Cup with a 5-1 win over Torquay United.
The home side took the lead in the opening stages of the game, with Jay Rich's corner inadvertently going straight into the back of the net.
Dorset responded well to the early setback, and got themselves back into the game but without creating any serious chances. The visiting side enjoyed longer spells on possession as Torquay looked to keep them out of the final third.
Just before the half time break, two goals in two minutes spun the game around. They came from consecutive corners, where Torquay failed to clear their lines and the ball was scrambled over the line from close range.
United changed shape at half time in an attempt to counter the way Dorset set up, but a slow start to the second period saw Dorset run away with the game. Three more goals were added in the opening ten minutes of the second half, and the game was over.
The final 25 minutes saw Dorset come close a couple more times, while United failed to really challenge the Dorset goalkeeper with their forays forward.
In the end, it proved a comfortable win for the Dorset side, and we wish them the best of luck for the rest of the season.
