Hamworthy United 2-3 Sholing
A much changed Boatmen side came from behind to set a new Wessex League record. The win meant Sholing's title winning gap to 2nd place is 28 points, surpassing the 25 points achieved by Lyminton & New Milton in 96/97. With 6 first team regulars unavailable, Aaron Whitmarsh made his debut in goal and Jack Nicholas started for the first time. Also a start in just his 2nd game for James Johnson. Home side scored on 16 mins, but 2 mins later Dan Mason equalised, controlling Brewster's cross before firing into the corner. Hamworthy went back in front to lead 2-1 at half time. Brad Targett hit the post and then Hamworthy had a glorious chance to score a tap-in, but messed it up and were made to pay. Pete Castle came off the bench to head in Hoole's corner on 80 minutes and then deep into added time, Castle's effort was saved, but Dan Mason, who else, with his back to goal, backheeled through the keeper's legs the winner and his 200th goal for Sholing - Match Report & Photos
Sholing 3-0 Portland United
There was a double celebration for Dan Miller as he picked up the Supporters player of the season award and then grabbed an early goal as the Boatmen rounded off their home campaign with win 18 out of 19 in the league. Miller headed in a corner after just 2 minutes and the lead was doubled on 24 when a good forward run by Royl saw him feed in Brad Targett to beat his man and slot the ball into the far corner. The young forward then hit the upright twice in as many minutes after the restart before Dan Mason rounded off the scoring on 55 mins. D-Dan latched onto a Wort through ball to sprint clear, ride a tackle, draw the keeper and finish for his 62nd of the season - Match Report & Photos
Sholing 3-0 Tadley Calleva
Kevin Brewster set up two goals and also scored a trademark freekick as Sholing strolled to a comfortable win. Dan Mason headed in Brewys cross & then won the freekick on the edge of the box that Kev Brewster curled round the wall, leaving the keeper unmoved as it went in. Second half saw Lee Wort get a deserved goal, his 50th of the season as he chested down Brewys ball in & on the stretch, finished past the keeper. Gosney made a couple of good saves to claim his 30th cleansheet of the season as the visitors never really showed the intensity they had in the two home games against Sholing earlier in the campaign - Match Report, Video & Photos
Bournemouth 2-6 Sholing
The second 6-2 win in succession for the Boatmen in a game of spectacular goals. Home side took the lead on 7 mins when a rare mixup in defence presented a tap-in for the Poppies, but straight from the restart, Jake Hoole charged down the keeper's kick and was left with a tap-in of his own and Sholing's 100th league goal of the season. On 20 mins, TJ's freekick was met with a flick backward header by Dan Mason and 10 minutes later it was 3-1 with a fantastic 25 yard piledriver by Lee Wort that arrowed into the far corner. Just 2 mins later, another great goal as Jake Hoole ran from his own half, exchanged passes with Wort and coolly slotted the ball into the far corner. On 52 mins, more great link up play as a superb touch by D-Dan set up Lee Wort to finish. He then rattled the bar from distance. The home side scored a good goal of their own on 76 mins via a 25 yard freekick that found the top corner, but Sholing rounded off the scoring as Lee Wort sped down the right wing and put over a lovely cross for Dan Mason to nod in at the near post for his 60th goal of the season - Match Report
Sholing 6-2 Brockenhurst
Boatmen turned on the style as they received the Sydenhams Wessex League Trophy and took their league goalscoring tally to 99 this season. Dan Mason scored his 5th hat-trick of the season, starting the scoring in the 42 mins, with a typical ruthless finish. A minute later, Lee Wort took advantage of a fumble from the keeper and then Brockenhurst made it 3 goals in as many minutes to make it 2-1 at half time. Dan Mason has scored some crackers this season and this might have been the best when on 58 mins, he chested down a long ball, turned and smashed into the top corner from 20 yards. The Brock skipper was red carded on 64 mins for dissent and 3 mins later, Lee Wort scored from near to the corner flag! His cross-shot went over the keeper and into the far corner. Dan Miller headed in at the far post from a corner on 73 mins before the visitors scored from a penalty on 77 mins. In added time, Sholing won a penalty with Dan Mason slotting in to take his and Lee Wort's total to 105 for the season.
