Millwey Rise Reserves and Tedburn St Mary Reserves drew 0-0, a result that was a fitting outcome from a match that was contested by two well-matched teams, writes Dick Sturch.

Tedburn could have taken the lead after only five minutes but squandered a great opportunity to do so.

The home side mounted a series of attacks but the nearest they came to scoring was a Nathan Womersley shot that skimmed the bar. Most attacks broke down on the resolute defences of both sides. Minutes before the break Tedburn wasted a glorious opportunity when clean through their forward put it wide of the post.

The second period could have gone either way. Terry Male in Millwey’s goal made two vital saves to keep the score level and then Millwey’s forwards failed to take full advantage of a breakaway which left the visitors goal totally exposed. A draw was definitely a fair result.

For Millwey, Danny Larcombe, in the middle of the defence, had a solid game breaking up many Tedburn attacks.

However, the Man of the Match award had to go to keeper Terry Male (sponsored by Stuart King) whose saves ensured a valuable point for his team.

Next Saturday (November 17), both Rise teams are on the road with the first team at Feniton and the second team visit Bradninch. Both games kick-off at 2.15om.
