A clinical performance from Bromley saw them overcome Dorchester Town 4-1 at Hayes Lane on Saturday.
The game started slowly, with both sides unable to create many chances. That was until the 18th minute, when Joe Anderson volleyed in his first Bromley goal following Alan Walker-Harris’ parry.
The Dorchester ‘keeper then made a superb save from Pierre Joseph-Dubois, tipping his close range volley out for a corner.
Bromley doubled their lead minutes later, and it was another defender who scored the goal. Captain Rob Swaine reacted well to turn Bradley Goldberg’s blocked shot past Walker-Harris for a 2-0 lead.
Josh Wakefield could have halved the deficit just one minute into the second half, but his weak header was easily saved by Joe Welch.
Bromley extended their lead soon after, as Welch’s goal kick was flicked on by Joseph-Dubois, allowing Bradley Goldberg to loop the ball over the onrushing goalkeeper.
Dorchester hoped to claw themselves back into the game as Jack Holland handled the ball in the area, giving the visitors a penalty. Nick Crittenden dispatched the spot kick to make it 3-1.
But it was The Ravens who would have the last word. Elliott Buchanan netted Bromley’s fourth with a placed finish from just outside the area.
The win sees Bromley move up to first place in the Skrill Conference South.
They next play Chelmsford City at home tomorrow, kick off 7:45pm at Hayes Lane.
