Dolphins steal the points

In front of a bumper crowd of 934, Hampton were undone by a resolute Poole Town defence.

Poole Town left their first ever visit to the Beveree with 3 points but in a game where the Beavers had more of the possession, they could count themselves somewhat fortunate.

A close first half saw neither keeper with much to do as both defences held firm.

The best chance in the first half came to Jay Gasson, whose header on 23 minutes was cleared from the line. 10 minutes later, Nicke Kabamba managed to get on the end of a Louis John chip forward, but the looping shot went wide of the post.

The game didn't really get going much in the second half other than an early shot from Jamal Lowe which flew wide from the angle of the box.

Chances were few and far between for either side until the Dolphins took the lead just before the hour.

Michael Kamara got turned by Steve Devlin towards the bye line, but in trying to prevent it played back, clipped the midfielders heels and the referee awarded the penalty.

Devlin stepped up to fire the ball past keeper Aaron Howe to put the visitors one up.

Hampton kept attacking, but the Poole defence stayed strong and little got through to threaten Hutchings in goal.

Jamal Lowe managed to get himself in the box with a mazy dribble but the Dolphins massed defence was too much and the threat was cleared.

Harold Odametey was the next to get a sniff of the goal, but his header from a Solomon cross was off target.

It took until the 70th minute for Hutchings to make a proper save as he blocked Lowe's shot from an acute angle.

With just 15 minutes to go, the Beavers were caught on the break as they pressed for the equaliser as a longong ball over the top found Sam Surridge. He who beat the defence and faced with the onrushing Aaron Howe, he slid the shot under the keeper and into the net to confirm the points.

The Dolphins barely threatened - Howe didn't have to make a save - yet went home with the win. Football's a funny game, isn't it?
