Honiton Troopers 1, Moors 4

Honiton Troopers Under-9s began their second game of the morning in a slow mode.

They may well have been suffering with tired legs from their earlier efforts and they shipped three first half goals having spent much of the game defending deeply! The team responded to a half-time chat with an improved performance after the break. The work rate and improved tackling in defence resulted in just one more goal being conceded. At the other end of the pitch Troopers scored from a quick break away when Harvey Haysom dribbled from deep inside his own half, taking on the last defender before firing past the keeper. Harvey Haysom was voted by his team mates as the team’s player of the day.

Troopers coach Dave Haysom said: “I am delighted with the performance of each and everyone of the players who all made a contribution to two excellent team performances. Harvey Lee in goal again made several crucial saves, the defenders and midfielders all worked hard for each other and, if the players can make this level of performance the norm in every game then they will become a very good team.”
