Next up they faced a Tiverton side that beat them 5-2. Once again Honiton made a bright start and looked solid at the back where Chris Lucas, Isaac Lidster and Harvey Haysom all stood out.

The hosts hit straight back to regain the lead, but parity was restored by the interval thanks to a Lewis Clyburn goal.

After a reshuffle, Ashton Beck joined the defence, but they were unable to prevent Tiverton scoring three more goals to complete a disappointing morning for the team.
