Honiton Devils U11s won 2-0 against the Cobras on their first visit to Copplestone.

The Devils started brightly playing good football on a larger pitch than they are used to.

The back three of Jai Freemantle, Evans and Leisk were strong in the tackle and stood strong with whatever the home side threw at them.

The Devils had chance after chance with strikers McCreadie-Taylor and Brown close to taking the lead.

On 22 minutes a move started by Leisk and developed by Lee Pulman and McCreadie-Taylor led to Leisk firing wide.

The half-time talk was about how it would require respect and hard work to get anything out of the game.

Two minutes after the restart a great run down the right by Sam Cottingham took him past two defenders. His cross into the box found Connor Brown who beat a man then slotted past the keeper.

The football that followed was very encouraging as the Devils kept on attacking in wave after wave.

Elliot Holdsworth put in a good shift on the left, supported well by full-back Luke Matthews, not forgetting second-half gloves man Hayden Owen who put in a good solid performance.

On 52 minutes a great pass by Leisk sent the striker down through the middle and his determination took him past the last defender shooting well into the far corner making it 0-2.

Man of the match went to Freemantle.
