Worle finished on top in a seven-goal thriller against Street Reserves to move into fourth place in the league table.

Worle were on top of their game against Street, with the visitors winning by the odd goal in seven.

Worle started the first five minutes on top, but Street put the pressure on and took the lead after 15 minutes from close range.

Worle started for the first time with Taylor and Cahill up front and their direct running was causing the home defence problems, but it was a goal from Callum Mcmanus who drew the sides level.

From this point, Worle were well on top and if it was not for some inspired goalkeeping from Baulch in the Street goal, Worle would have been out of sight.

It was no surprise that Worle took the lead from Mcmanus again when his side-footed shot beat everyone. In between these goals, Worle hit the woodwork twice and a brilliant save also denied them.

Going down the slight slope should have been an advantage, but it was Street who came out the better team and Dancey in the Worle goal made a couple of point blank saves.

Street drew level after the hour when confusion in the Worle defence allowed the dangerous Street forward on goal and he beat the advancing Dancey to give them a deserved goal.

Worle composed themselves and it was man of the match Mcmanus looked to have sealed all three points for Worle with another finish from the six-yard box. This was closely followed by the winner from Jack Hodrien after good work from Tom Adams and Taylor.

With the last kick of the game, it was a great goal from Street when their centre-half found himself in the six-yard box and curled the ball into the Worle net.

This win puts Worle into fourth spot with games in hand and this Saturday Worle welcome Coombe St Nicholas to the Rec with a 2pm kick-off.
