Bournemouth beats 9-man West Brom 2-1

BIRMINGHAM, England (AP) -- Bournemouth completed a remarkable hat trick of wins in the Premier League on Saturday with a 2-1 victory over a West Bromwich Albion side that finished with nine men.

After beating champion Chelsea and Manchester United in its previous matches, Bournemouth full-back Adam Smith fired the visitors ahead in the 52nd minute at the Hawthorns.

Bournemouth already had a numerical advantage after James McClean was dismissed for a late challenge on Adam Smith in the 34th.

West Brom hit back in the closing stages, with defender Gareth McAuley heading in a 79th-minute equalizer.

But Bournemouth restored its lead eight minutes later when Charlie Daniels smashed home a penalty after Dan Gosling was felled by Darren Fletcher.

Salomon Rondon was then red-carded in stoppage time after clashing with Gosling.
