Frome Town suffered a heavy - if not unexpected defeat - at title favourites Weymouth although the 4-0 result could be considered somewhat harsh as a reflection of the game.
The game was played in a very strong wind which was to the home sides advantage in the first half. There were few real chances for either side in reality with Weymouth putting pressure on the left side of Frome’s defence through the impressive Odubade but the visiting defence holding firm and neither goalkeeper was called on to make a save until the 45th minute when the hosts were awarded a penalty after a trip in the area which Goodship converted well.
Frome had the advantage of the wind in the second half and started brightly, looking the better side but again without troubling Seabright in the Weymouth goal. As they arrived to get back into the game they began to leave gaps at the back with Weymouth looking dangerous on the break.
Their second goal came on 68 minutes when Odubade broke on the right to go 2v1 with Carey and unselfishly crosses to Goodship for the easiest of tap ins. The same player completed his hat trick with a sublime strike from the edge of the area on 80 minutes to effectively end the contest and in the 85th Brooks scrambled the Ball home at the near post to complete the scoring.
Frome Town man of the match was Rex Mannings.
