Honiton Town Rovers 0, Kentisbeare 2: Honiton Town Rovers were beaten by two cracking goals - one in each half - by a big, physical and well organised Kentisbeare side.

Rovers started well and dominated the first quarter of the game and were unlucky not to be two up within the first 15 minutes.

But the Kentisbeare keeper was in great form, pulling off master saves from both George Hathaway and Kieran Murphy.

Kentisbeare began to get a foothold on the game and came close on a couple of occasions.

A couple of excellent last ditch tackles from both Cody Northcott and Aaron Pearse kept them at bay until a great strike from the edge of the box gave Kentisbeare the lead.

Ben Logan, Connor Long, and Daniel Greenland had to be at their best to keep out Kentisbeare in the second half.

Keeper Daryl Young pulled off some fine saves, including stopping a penalty, which maybe should have been re-taken.

Scott Redman, Billy Reed and Toby Bouganeau all battled well in midfield, and the hard working Harry Wright did well as the lone striker.

Rovers did come close to getting back into the game but fortune did not shine on them as Aaron Pearse saw his shot go narrowly over the bar, and Kieran Murphy and Ben Kidson had efforts cleared off the line.

Subs Todd Lewendon, Liam Barribal and Billy Penwarden all contributed when given the chance, but it was not to be Rovers' day when Kentisbeare scored another cracker from the edge of the box, for a deserved victory.
