Honiton Terrors Under-11s were involved in a six-goal thriller against Lyme Regis when the pair met in an East Devon Youth League encounter.

Lyme started brightly, which gave plenty of work for Honiton defenders Logan Tratt and Connor Harrison. However, Terrors settled into the game with wingers Elliot Holdsworth and Joseph Charlton giving the side good options out wide. Striker Dominic McCreadie fired Honiton ahead with the assist from Ewan Evans and it was soon 2-0 when McCreadie rifled home once more and his side went into the break two goals to the good. Lyme made a good start to the second half and reduced the deficit with a fine goal. Honiton, with Ben Lapping and Jordan Harrison putting in good shifts, restored the two-goal margin with McCreadie completing yet another hat-trick. However, Lyme were not done and they bagged a second to set up a frenetic final 10 minutes. They levelled things up late on and were denied a fourth by a wonderful save by Terrors goalkeeper Harry Horn.

Terros boss Mark Fisher said: “What a cracking game. It was full of good football from both sides. My team’s Man of the Match award was shared by Connor (Harrison) and three-goal Dominic (McCreadie). A huge well done to the whole team, they all played their hearts out and I am so proud of them!”
