Sidmouth & Ottery 1, Bridgwater Men 1st 5
TOM Lott helped to spearhead Bridgwater to a 5-1 win at the weekend as he scored four against lowly Sidmouth & Ottery.
Lott got the first of his goals with a straight strike that was too hot for the keeper and went straight through his pads. It soon became 2-0 to the visitors when Taylor won the ball high up the pitch, played it inside to Ash Woolmington who found Lott in the 'D' who grabbed his second of the game.
Lott finished off his hat-trick in spectacular when he snaked his way through four Sidmouth & Ottery defenders and slotted it past the on-rushing goalkeeper.
The half ended 4-0 to the visiting side - this time it was Josh Gale to slam home from the top of the 'D' after good work from Liam Pigden down the right to create the chance.
In the second half, Lott got his fourth goal of the afternoon - a quick free hit Upham found Taylor who released the ball just at the correct moment which left Lott 1-on-1 with the goalkeeper who he beat with confidence.
Sidmouth grabbed a consolation but it was not enough as Bridgwater won 5-1 with man of the match award going to Tom Lott.
