Feniton and Honiton both took something from their Fresha League top flight meeting when the game ended in a 1-1 draw.

Feniton and Honiton both took something from their Fresha League top flight meeting when the game ended in a 1-1 draw.

Fenny started the better of the two sides in a match that was always going to be tough.

Feniton had some glorious chances in the third of the match and really ought to have gone off at half-time with at least two goals!

Roberto Bergamini missed a free header from a corner and sent it wide and Kieran Johnston was unmarked in the six-yard box with the ball at his feet, but didn’t realise how much time he had and just hacked it away from goal!

During a closely contested first half possession of the ball was even but the home side had the better chances.

After the break Honiton began well and created a couple of good chances.

They broke the deadlock with a clinical counter-attack goal!

Feniton had a free-kick by the corner flag in the Honiton half. The ball was delivered into the area only for it to be cleared to reach the feet of Jack Knight who then ran from the edge of his own area without and challenge from an opposing player, and he continued his run to the Feniton area where he planted then ball firmly beyond the keeper and into then net!

The Feniton response was excellent and they were level within five minutes when a cross from the right was sliced past his own goalkeeper by Honiton defender Steve Trenchard!

In what little time remained both teams created chances. Honiton had the better ones, but Feniton might have taken all three points when Dan Norman was clean through only to take too many touches and his eventual shot was blocked by a defender.

At the other end Honiton’s best chance to win it fell to Mark Couch, but he put his header over the bar.

Included in the Feniton side were former Honiton players Ben Price and Brett Sellick who recently completed moves from Mountbattten Park to Acland Park.

The Feniton Man of the Match award went to defender Stuart Blackmore.

Feniton manager Ben Ede said: “Going into the game with a near full-strength side I fancied our chances of picking up all three points. However, given the 90 odd minutes of action that took place I think a draw was a fair result and although both teams did have chances to win it I am happy with a point.

“Honiton defended very well and were always a threat going forward especially down the wings.

“We now have a run of games that I believe we should be winning but I need to make my players realise they can’t just turn up and expect to win without putting in the effort.

“All the best to Honiton for the remainder of the season, it would be nice if we are both up there at the end of the campaign!”

On Saturday Feniton travel to bottom of the table Willand Rovers Reserves.

Feniton: Matt Kingdon, Dyer (Sellick), Blackmore, Johnston, Simic (Mark Kingdon 45), Bergamini, Frankpitt, Ede B, Allen (C), Lewis (Groves), Norman. Subs not used: Price, Ede L.
