Axminster Town 2nds booked a meeting with Bow AAC in the next round of the Devon Senior Cup after an impressive 5-1 victory over Millwey Rise. 
The Tigers took an early lead and Nathan Hoole in the Rise goal made a fine save to keep his side in the game. Sam Dibling had a succession of efforts for the visitors before Axminster increased their lead. 
A third goal immediately after half-time effectively sealed the win and Axminster managed two more before a Brad Conway consolation. The goals for Axminster came from Charlie Wilson 2, Sam Winslade, Joe Jones and James Girton. 
In the League, however, Axminster suffered a 2-0 loss to Ottery St Mary, a result that prolongs the title race in Division 2 East.
