Archant

Honiton Sharks’ Kelsey Pulman earned Man of the Match for his efforts outfield against the Sidmouth Warriors U10s and then in goal against the Raiders, writes Warren Matthews.

Neither result, 8-2 and 5-0 defeats, did the team justice, as they passed the ball around well to create chances. For much of the game against the Warriors it was evenly contested until the visitors took control as the game wore on. Honiton’s goals were scored by the ever-reliable Rowan Westall and a neatly-taken goal by Lewis Blackwell to finish off a good passing move.

The second game was a similar affair with some superb finishing by the visitors in an end-to-end contest. Both sides created many more chances, but the home team were unable to capitalise on theirs.

Sharks were: Lewis Blackwell, Owen Fisher, Jake Matthews, Dylan Nicholas, Joel Trim, Kelsey Pulman, Danny Ruel, Luke Ward and Rowan Westall.

●All action was the order of the day for Seaton A, playing a six-a-side game because of Colyton’s team shortages, writes Andrew Franklin.

It taught Seaton to pass and play superbly. Thomas Bush was the first to score a hat-trick with Lewis Franklin scoring four and Lewis Pearson and Will Campbell not wanting to be left out of the action in a 9-1 win.

Scott Pavey was brilliant in defence Thomas Driver was outstanding in only his second game. Colyton tried hard but in the end Seaton outplayed them. An exciting game for all. Man of the match was Thomas Bush.

●Arron Rowland was on target twice for Feniton U10s, as the Acland Park outfit recorded a 3-1 victory against neighbours Ottery Barrellers on a sticky pitch at Cullompton, writes Steve Upsher.

Rowland showed clinical finishing skills to bag two, the first from a perfect cross from Tom Jeacock.

All 10 Feniton players battled well in testing conditions.

Seaton Under 9s lost 2-1 to Crediton Under-10s in a fantastic team performance at home, writes Anthony Hellier.

Crediton started well and scored a fortunate first goal, a high shot that went in over the Seaton goalie. The remainder of the first half was competitive, with Crediton scoring a further goal to make it 2-0 at half time.

In the second half, Seaton put together a fantastic team performance and started to get control of the match,

Edward Kenworthy scored early on to make the score 2-1 which boosted Seaton further, and, from then on, Crediton only had one clear chance on goal which the Seaton goalie, Alfie Tucker-Vincent saved well.

Most of the second half was played in the Crediton half of the pitch with Seaton creating many attacking moves.

However, they could just not get the ball into the back of the net again.

This was easily Seaton’s best performance of the season and they really deserved to get something from the game, well done team.
