SOUTHERN PREMIER Weymouth to fore, Taunton soar

Evo-Stik Southern League logoWeymouth’s 2-1 turnaround Tuesday win at Tiverton sent Mark Molesley’s Terras four points clear at the Southern Premier South summit.

Brandon Goodship’s last minute goal secured Weymouth’s seventh league win of the season and sealed their second half comeback at Ladysmead, after Michael Landricombe (22’) had headed Tivvy ahead.

Terras skipper Jake McCarthy levelled on 66 minutes.
