Honiton Town hit new heights on match day two of the new Macron Devon and Exeter League Premier Division season with a terrific 4-1 win at Okehampton Argyle.

Chris Long fired the Hippos into the lead before a second successive penalty was conceded from which the home side netted to be all square at half-time.

After the break Town took charge against 10-man Argyle who had had a player sent off just before the interval.

A couple of crude tackles early in the second half, both inside the area, resulted in penalties – both tucked away by Lewis Couch before Corey Couch scored his second of the season with a classy finish to complete the scoring.

Town boss Kev Blackwell said: “It was a really good victory at a tough venue against a good side. We were much improved in the second half and fully merited the three points. The player advantage definitely helped, and it might have finished six or seven in out favour, but I’ll take four goals and three points away from home every day of the week.”
