FenIton moved into their highest ever Premier league position after a well fought 1-1 draw at home to a hard working Dawlish Town on Sunday.Feniton actually sit in fourth position in the league and, at the start of the season, they were given the task of improving on their points tally over the only other season when they were in the Premiership. For the second week running the game was played in a very strong wind, but both sides coped with the conditions well to serve up a keenly fought match.Feniton started slowly and the visitors saw a spectacular shot crash back off the home team's crossbar and into the arms of Vicky Sanders in the Feniton goal. In fact it took 15 minutes before Feniton got to grips with the match and started to compete all over the pitch.Feniton's first opportunity saw Chloe Lock's shot on the turn sail over the Dawlish crossbar. Then Feniton's Michele Jones saw her close range volley excellently saved by the visitors' keeper.Back came Dawlish and it took some good collective defending by Palfrey and Nelson in the heart of the Feniton defence to clear the danger. Emma Smith on the Feniton right had her hands full with the Dawlish left winger who showed a good turn of pace and it was a combination of Horman and Smith who stubbed out the next Dawlish attack.The visitors took the lead mid way through the first half with a penalty.Feniton came out to dominate the match, scored the equaliser and then proceeded to create the bulk of the chances and should really have won the match.It was Horman, released by Locke in the centre of the pitch with a delightful through ball, who outpaced the defence to calmly slot the ball into the far corner.With Horman, Ames and Locke forming a strong triangle in the centre of the pitch Feniton had other chances to snatch victory. Lock's shot was cleared by the home defence, Horman just failed to get onto the end of a cross from Dowell and Jones failed to convert a cross from Horman.Feniton's improvement over the last few weeks is down to a very strong team commitment and a never-say-die attitude.Feniton's Spence and Dowell in the middle of midfield are playing some positive football and the subs Eveleigh, Smith and Slee all played their part in another strong Feniton performance.Feniton entertain Plymouth Uni next Sunday, kick-off 2pm.
