  • Story Of The Match

It took Solihull Moors just seven minutes to take the lead in this one Joe Sbarra does very well in midfield before teeing up Ryan Barnett and his cross found loanee Harry Boyes at the back post who converted from close range.  
 

Within five minutes, Solihull almost doubled their lead when a quick break away saw Joe Sbarra find birthday boy Kyle Storer but he drilled his effort wide of the target. 
 

Five minutes before half time, Solihull Moors doubled their advantage over Weymouth. After a goal mouth scramble which saw Kyle Hudlin, Andrew Dallas and Callum Maycock have shots blocked, the ball eventually goes in off a Weymouth player. 
 

Half Time: Weymouth FC 0-2 Solihull Moors 

Blair had Weymouth’s first real chance of the second half but his cross/shot was blocked by Callum Howe and the resulting corner came to nothing. 
 

Kyle Hudlin went close again for the Moors when he beat his man but his shot hit the side netting. 
 

With twenty minutes to go, Solihull Moors grabbed their third of the afternoon. Some good play from Callum Maycock sees him find Full-back James Clarke who drills a brilliant effort past Fitzsimons to wrap the game up. 
 

Or so they thought, as Weymouth suddenly sprung into life and should have pulled one back through Sheilds but he blazed his effort over. Brandon Goodship was also denied by Ryan Boot as the hosts pushed for a way back into the game. 
 

And they were rewarded with eleven minutes to play when Tyler Cordner converted from close range to bring Weymouth back into the game. 
 

In added time, the drama still wasn’t over as Solihull grabbed their fourth goal of the afternoon. Scotsman Andrew Dallas beat a couple of Weymouth players before slotting past the keeper to make it four for the Moors. 
 

Even then, Blair grabbed a goal for Weymouth to give them very late hope but in truth, it’s nothing more than a consolation goal.
