Lyme Regis 1, Honiton Terrors 0

Honiton Terrors Under-10s were beaten by the narrowest of margins in an East Devon Youth League game on Sunday, writes Mark Fisher.

Terrors began brightly, keeping possession and passing the ball confidently, especially Ewan Evans and Mathew Bevis who looked in complete control in defence.

Joseph Charlton and Dominic McCreadie worked tirelessly in their midfield roles, causing Lyme a lot of trouble.

Ben Lapping was strong and unlucky not to score in his strikers role, but although Terrors dominated the first half the break arrived with the score still 0-0.

Lyme were stronger in the second half, but Zac Harrison and Jacob Fisher kept the home defence busy whilst Jake Mabbutt put in a superb shift.

Despite this, and somewhat against the run of play, Lyme scored, but Honiton came back fighting, never giving up and looking for the equaliser.

Harry Horn in goal, had little chance with the one that beat him, but otherwise was never really tested. What he did he did well and this gave the rest of team great confidence to keep going. T

Despite the defeat the Terrors can be very proud of their collective performance.

Jake Mabbutt and Zac Harrison shared the Man of the Match award.
