Honiton U14s 4, Seaton Town Youth U14s 3

Honiton came out with a hard-fought win, Seaton leading early on by 2-0 and being more than worthy of their lead, writes Richard Ayres.

Seaton passed the ball better and wanted to win the game, where as Honiton believed they only had to turn up.

A very tough team chat at half time may have woken the lads up , as Honiton took the wind out of Seaton’s sails and took a 4-2 lead, one Seaton were unable to catch. Seaton deserved more on their first half performance, but Honiton improved to take the points. A Tom Olive hat-trick was the difference and a great display by Liam Early helped Honiton’s cause.

Honiton Town U10s 1, Sidmouth Raiders 6

Playing against a strong, skilful side, Honiton found themselves on the back foot but defended well until a intercepted goal kick saw the visitors take the lead.

Honiton continued to stand firm and managed to put some good passages of play together but the first half ended with them 3-0 down. The second period followed a similar pattern with Honiton defending resolutely. Honiton’s efforts were eventually rewarded when Caleb Freemantle scored. Honiton can be happy with their performance overall.

Next Saturday see the team travel to Mid Devon for games against Cullompton Rangers and West Hill Wasps.

Dawlish 1, Honiton FC U9s Devils 3 cup

Honiton U9 Devils beat Dawlish 3-1 away, going down a goal early on, but the team put in more effort and were rewarded with an equaliser before half time, River Leisk scoring, writes Mark Fisher.

With a half time team talk the Devils came out a lot more focused with Ewan Evans putting them into the lead and after plenty of hard work, a beautifully taken corner by Connor Brown was knocked into goal by Dominic Mccreadie-Taylor. Ewan Evans and Josh Edwards sharing Man of the Match.

Twyford Barca 8, Demons 1

Despite a positive start Twyford were soon three goals down and struggling to get into the game. But with some good play from Ben Borkowski, Elliot Holdsworth put a good pass to Lee Pullman who confidently scored a cracking goal. Demons just couldn’t capitalise. With another two goals before half time the second half was tougher as they couldn’t break through Barcas’ defence. The Demons never gave up but they never looked like they could come back. and the match ended 8-1 to Barca. Lee Pullman got Man of the Match for his positive attitude, all players enjoyed the friendly game after with Twyford Madrid.

Seaton 3, Honiton FC U14s 4

Seaton travelled to league leaders Honiton this week to play in a match that always proves exciting, writes Andrew Franklin.

Seaton went ahead within the first few minutes with a great goal from Kyle Gould and followed straight after with a beautiful shot from Max Richardson. However, Honiton proved its status against the young Seaton team and came back fiercely defending. The score at halftime was 2-0 to Seaton. In to the second half Honiton challenged in all positions and came back to score two goals to level the game. The battle was on and Honiton took full advantage of all situations, edging into the lead after a free kick, and caught Seaton unaware for a second time making the score 4-2. Seaton came back at the end with a third goal but unfortunately ran out of time. The score did not reflect the players’ efforts.

of the players. Defenders Oliver Browne, Brandon Curl, Lewis Pearson and Ricky Littley were outstanding and midfielders Ollie Binion, Lewis Cottam and Jacob Rowe never gave up. Man of the match Kyle Gould. Next Seaton are home on the 25th November.
