Millwey Rise defeated Honiton thirds 3-1 when the pair met at Cloakham Lawns, writes Dick Sturch.
In a very entertaining game at Cloakham Lawns Honiton took the lead when a shot was inadvertently deflected into the home side’s net.
By half-time the scores were level thanks to a Jack Farrant goal. In the second half Dan Murnane with a firmly struck shot put Millwey into the lead and Mark Pike rounded off a successful afternoon with the third.
In the midfield, Jack Farrant and Jack Bennet were particularly impressive in a team performance that augured well for the future.
Both teams were full of praise and thanks for councillor Ian Hall who stood in to referee the match after the nominated official withdrew at the last minute.
