Bodor hat-trick as Town Reserves win well at Wellington
- Credit: Archant
Sidmouth Town Reserves were 5-2 winners when they travelled to meet Wellington in a Macron League Division One match.
The early exchanges were even-steven before Ferenc Bodor rifled the ball home from 30-yards to give the Vikings a 10th minute lead.
With Connor Swingler orchestrating things on midfield, Town were playing with confidence.
In defence they looked disciplined and solid with debut playing Ollie Jarrett impressive. It was from the back line that many a Town attack was launched.
The lead was doubled when Scott Hughes applied a customary finish to a slick move. It was no more than the Town dominance warranted when Bodor bagged a second to make it 3-0. Bodor then completed a first-half hat-trick with the only blip on an otherwise splendid first 45 minutes was a moment of complacency that let the home side pull a goal back.

Wellington came more into the game in the second half, much of that being born out of the fact that they had nothing to lose.
Town continued to create chances and Hughes, Bodor, Pitter, Sellick, and Jarrett all went close before Wellington got their second.

However, the Vikings were soon holding a three goal margin again as Kyle Blair found the back of the net. That goal saw an end to the scoring.
Town coach Paddy Thomas said: “It was certainly a very pleasing result. The players did themselves proud. That said, standards need to be kept at the level they have shown they can reach. With a number of players missing from the Wellington game it is clear now that the lads who have the shirt need to fight to keep it!”
