Nine-man Poole Town share points with Weymouth FC
POOLE Town and Weymouth FC shared the spoils in a fiery Dorset derby at Tatnum.
The Dolphins lead going into the closing stages - despite being reduced to nine men. However, former Poole player Luke Burbidge rescued a point for the Terras in an entertaining Calor Southern Premier League clash.
There was little between the two teams during the first 45 minutes, but the visitors opened the scoring in first half injury time.
Nathan Walker's headed effort rebounded off the fortunate Stewart Yetton from close range to give the Terras the lead.

Poole's Steve Devlin was dismissed for a two-footed lunge, but the hosts equalised through substitute Richard Gillespie on the hour mark.
Gillespie then doubled his tally to give Poole a shock lead before goalkeeper Nick Hutchings was sent off. After being booked, Hutchings was allegedly shown a second yellow moments later for tapping the referee on the back of the head in dissent.
Weymouth's numerical advantage told as Burbidge's great finish set up a thrilling climax with the scores shared at 2-2.
The Dolphins hung on as the points were shared at Tatnum in front of over 1,000 fans.
