PUBLISHED: 13:32 23 November 2011
Honiton U8s had a good day on Saturday, despite both the Devils and Demons losing their games to a well-organised Pinhoe side writes Mark Fisher.
The day started with the presentation of the new Match kits to the players from team sponsors - Devils’ sponsors, Windmill Garage, and Demons’ sponsors, PBS Ltd.
The Demons started their game against Pinhoe fast and with purpose, coming close to scoring in the first few minutes. But Pinhoe fought back with their physical presense and some good passing, scoring four goals in first half and three more in the second half. The final score 7-1 although the match was well fought end to end. Lee Pulman and Louis Stamp worked hard in the first half with Ryan Wadey and Jacob Fisher showing great promise in the second half. Sam Foster scored a penalty after a well taken free kick being handled in the box. Josh Edwards was awarded Man of the Match for a fantastic brace of impressive saves.
The Devils also started brightly, holding Pinhoe back for much of the match. It was only 2-0 at half time with Flynn Trower and Liam Osborne driving towards Pinhoe's goal. Ewan Evans got a goal back in the second half and Dominic McCreadie Taylor had his penalty saved with the match ending 4-1. Zac Harrison and Jai Freemantle were also key players in the match, with Hayden Owen getting Man of the Match for an inspiring performance in goal .
and later with his defensive duties. Luke Matthews and Arran White both came close to scoring in a very close match. Thanks again to all who help in making the day run smoothly.
Colyton U16s 5, Broadclyst U16s 0
Following on from their Cup Victory last weekend Colyton played host to Broadclyst and came away with their first league win of the season, writes Kevin Searle.
Goals were scored by James Hill (2), Jack Videon, Theo Hill and Charlie Stephenson.
Exwick 2, Seaton U15s 4 Division Two
Exwick raced out of the blocks from kick-off, caught the Seaton defence napping, hit the post and scored inside two minutes.
Seaton regrouped and on seven minutes Tom Fouracre scored. The Exwick keeper denied Barribal two further opportunities before a cross from George Harwood saw the unmarked Barribal tap in. Exwick equalised, the half finishing 2-2.
Both sides worked hard in the second half searching for a winner. A great run from Dave Lyon set up Barribal and Geoge Richards scored a fourth in injury time.
The Seaton defence of Ollie Page, captain Harry Johnstone and particularly Johnny House, thwarted most of Exwick’s attacks. The victory takes Seaton ahead of Exwick in the table.
For the second week running Sam Riley was Seaton’s man of the match for some outstanding saves.
Feniton Tigers U8 last two outings have seen a continued improvement in confidence and ability.
Tigers travelled to Sandy lane for matches against Dawlish United and West Exe.
West Exe were impressive, but Feniton responded well and played their best match of the season. Oscar broke the deadlock with a great individual goal. An end to end second half saw West Exe steal the advantage.
Dawlish put up great resistance to the confident visitors’ attack, but couldn’t keep out the Roaring Tigers. A multitude of goals including one from new signing Ollie and Arthur’s first of the season helped seal the match and end an enjoyable weekend. Noted performances from Edward who battled all morning, Cameron who showed great pace up and down the flanks and again Max for wearing out another pair of legs. It was great to see so many parents turning up to support the team’s efforts.
