Feniton net six in second half to finish in seventh heaven at Chagford’s expense

PUBLISHED: 12:53 18 October 2011

Feniton scored six times in a dominant second half performance to comprehensively beat visiting Chagford 7-1 at Acland Park.

Just one goal separated the sides at half-time, scored by the Blues’ Chris Palfrey.

After the break, Palfrey added a second and then Paul Dowling also notched a brace.

Further goals came from, Charlie Selley, Andy Hawkins from the penalty spot, and substitute Liam Ogborne.

The pick of the goals came from Selley who capped a fine all-round performance with a superb strike from the edge of the area whilst the Hawkins penalty came after the lively Ben Allen had been tripped in the area.

The one blot on an otherwise near perfect Blues show was the conceding of a sloppy goal, to the visitors when a back pass fell short allowing the clean sheet to be ruined!

Boss Mark Kingdon said: “We played very well and could, perhaps should, have scored more goals in the first half. But I have to be happy with the overall performance and it has given me quite a headache with regard to selection for the next game.”

That next game is Saturday’s home meeting with Heavitree which will see Kingdon have the services of Alex Frankpitt available again. Kingdon says: “It’s a nice sort of headache, but painful none the less as I am clearly going to have to disappoint somebody in terms of my starting eleven.”
