UCL Division One: Bourne Town 0 Whitworth 2

Rafa Mazzarella felt Bourne Town’s failure to score during a bright start proved costly.

The Wakes returned from a two-week winter break but Whitworth recorded a fifth consecutive win, completing the double over Mazzarella’s side after a 4-0 home win.

Cavell Jarvis’ 20th goal of the season put the visitors ahead and Deven Ellwood’s 17th strike this term sealed the win with three minutes to go at Abbey Lawn on Saturday.

Mazzarella reflected: “We did well in the first half an hour when we were probably the better side.

“We had a couple of chances and one effort was ruled out for offside.

“But then a mix-up led to the first goal. A back-header went wrong, we had another chance to clear and we didn’t deserve to go 1-0 down.

“After that we didn’t want the game to get away from ourselves as it became a bit of a battle.

“We threatened on the odd occasion and we had a penalty shout turned down.

“But they scored again late on and it was a case of job done for them. We are not scoring when we are on top and we need to put that right.”
