BERROW 8 WORLE 2
BERROW comfortably secured their passage to the next round of the Somerset County Senior cup with an 8-2 mauling of Worle, despite playing for an hour with only ten men.
A hat trick from Ross McErlain (3) and goals from Luke McErlain, Kyle McErlain, Jack Taylor, Jason Kilduff and Dave Keirle helped Berrow on their way, whilst Luke McErlian saw red for a second bookable offence.
The home side went one up on five minutes, Luke McErlain with another wonder goal, lobbing the goalkeeper from 45 yards.
Berrow relaxed when they should have pushed on and allowed Worle to get into the game, with their striker scoring an equaliser.
Berrow regained the lead when Ross McErlain broke through the middle and saw his shot deflected past the helpless keeper.
Berrow then lost captain Luke McErlain to a second yellow card but this seemed to spur the home side on, and Kyle McErlain made it three with a lovely finish from a half cleared corner.
In the final minute of the half it was four; Ross McErlain curling a brilliant free kick into the top corner from 25 yards.
Berrow started the second half slowly but soon got back into gear when Dax Vincent cut in onto his right foot and smashed his shot past the keeper from 20 yards.
Berrow did well to keep their cool as the away side continually gave away free kicks.
Ross McErlain made them pay once again as he completed his hat trick with another 25 yard free kick.
Jason Kilduff replaced Vincent, before Jack Taylor scored on his return to the side after good work from the impressive Jack Radford and Ross McErlain.
Dave Keirle replaced Taylor and scored with almost his first touch as he went through to calmly score.
Worle pulled a goal back with 5 minutes remaining, but the game was long gone.
MOM sponsored by Peter Jones Hairdressers was Ross McErlain.
