GOALS: Pitman 12, Feeney 25, Pitman 67, 90
Twelve minutes in Feeney broke down the wing, put in a cross for Pitman to hit first time. A deflection off a Dale defender took the shot beyond the grasp of the keeper.
Feeney continued to terrorise down the right and doubled the Cherries lead with a beautifully struck curler from outside of the box on 25 minutes. Fletcher glanced a header just wide when it looked easier to score.
The opening period saw the visitors threaten but fail to create.
On 67 minutes Pitman took a Fletcher flick-on in his stride and beat the keeper with ease. With full time fast approaching Pitman completed his hat-trick with another top class finish.
