Millwey Rise made it none wins in ten Fresha League Six starts with victory over visiting Woodbury Reserves in a contest that produced 10 goals, writes Dick Sturch.

Woodbury opened the scoring with a goal that highlighted some frailties in Millwey’s re-arranged defence in the absence of the Lewis brothers and Shane Featherstone. Nathan Wormesley swiftly restored parity with a 25-yard screamer. A Woodbury strike then clipped Millwey’s bar before Tyler Warre’s goal put the home side into the lead for the first time.

The visitors hit back to make 2-2, but this action merely served to fire Levi Hoole into action and the Millwey hit man struck a quick-fire hat-trick to celebrate the recent birth of his daughter. For his final goal he soared high above the defenders to meet a corner and increase his tally to 35 for the season!

Millwey were in total control from the start of the second half and Tyler Warren soon increased their lead, but then a bit of complacency crept in which allowed Woodbury to reduce the arrears. Tyler Warren then completed his hat-trick to round off the scoring and leave Millwey Rise with an identical score line to their match seven days before!

Manager Simon Flint did a good job re-jigging his team to counteract the absentees. A prime example of this was Alex Rocket’s presence in the back four. Tyler Warren’s performance was his best to date and he vied with Michael Knight and Nathan Wormseley for the Man of the Match award.

This coming Saturday (December 5), Millwey Rise travel to East Devon to take on Fresha League Five table-topper Otterton in an A and S Paving Devon Intermediate Cup tie (2pm).
