Honiton Town Reserves played all but ten minutes of their Fresha League meeting with hosts Priory with ten men and yet still manage to emerge as 6-2 winners.

Joe Dixon served up the stand-out shift, scoring four times with the other Hippo’s goals coming from Blake Freemantle and Louis Grant.

Reserve team boss John Lewis said: “It was a terrific performance, especially playing for so long a man short. However, even in victory there were elements of the performance I did not like. None more so than the manner of the two goals we conceded. We need to be better at defending than that.”

The win sees the team sitting top of the Division Five table with one more league match to negotiate. That fixture is tonight’s meeting (Monday, April 20) against Priory at Mountbatten Park. Victory for the Town second team would guarantee them a top two finish and with that a place next season in Division Four.
