Honiton Town Under-13s and Ottery St Mary shared six goals when they contested an Exeter and District Youth League derby.

Honiton began well, but fell behind to a goal that the Otters took into the interval.

The second period saw Honiton attempt to play with more control and they managed to draw level through Caleb Freemantle.

The game then swung from end-to-end with both sides taking turns to push forward, but it was Ottery who scored next to regain the lead. The hosts duly equalised when Max Salter was rewarded as the Saints keeper pushed a corner straight onto his forehead, but Honiton the fell behind for the third time in the game when a poor clearance ended with the ball nestling in the Honiton net.

However, not for the first time in the contest, the Honiton character shone through and they managed to grab a share of the points when Dan Loosemore drove forward and his ball into the penalty area found Dominic McCreadie-Taylor who finished calmly.

The final result reflected the game overall which was played in good spirit and was well refereed by Charley Horn.
