Honiton Under-9s took on teams from Exeter Panthers on a freezing cold morning.

First up the Demons played Pink Panthers and the Exeter side proved to be very strong and they bagged a 5-0 win despite some impressive performances from defenders Ben and Jake together with goal keeper Harry, whilst Dominic, Lee and Elliott gave their all.

Demons then played Exeter Panthers, another well organised outfit who claimed a 6-0 win. The Demons gave their all throughout, particularly Connor R and Elliot played their hearts out whilst Aidan was awarded Player of the Day for all his hard work in only his second appearance.

The Devils played Panthers first and trailed just 1-0 at the break, thanks mainly to the efforts of River and Jacob in defence.

After the break two more goals were conceded. Connor B got Man of the Match for a great effort.

The Devils then played Pink Panthers and made a positive start. After a spell of pressure Sam headed them in front where they stayed until late in the contest when the Panthers struck an equaliser.

Coach Mark Fisher said: “The whole team deserve so much credit. Everyone of them gave us so much on the day. I know they are capable of playing some lovely football and, despite the Pink’s getting a goal back from a free kick, the Devils should take this performance to the next match and keep going forward.”
