Feniton made Firewatch Devon Senior Cup progress with a 2-0 win over Phoenix at Acland Park.

What made the Blues result all the more impressive was that the Exeter side are unbeaten in their Divisor One campaign this season to date.

The game began at a frantic pace and it was Phoenix who bossed the early exchanges. However, and somewhat against the run of play, Feniton took the lead courtesy of Paul Dowling.

The decisive goal was the second, scored by Ben Allen and that effectively killed off the Exeter side. They were presented with a great chance to get back into the contest with the award of a late penalty but Mark Kingdon made a superb save to keep the spot kick out and, thereafter, Feniton saw the game out to a very satisfactory conclusion.

A happy boss, Mark Kingdon said: “It was a really good and very solid, all-round performance with big performances across the park. What was very encouraging was that we took on, and beat, with something to spare, a side who are no doubt expecting to be up amongst the challengers in the First Division of the Fresha League. We had three players missing and that means that, with this eleven doing such a great job, I have a particular headache with regard to selection for next week’s game!”

Alex Frankpitt, Andy Hawkins and Elliott Dyer, the latter having made the switch from Seaton Town, all come back into the reckoning for Saturday’s home meeting with Chagford in the league.
