Honiton Town Under-15 centre back Dan Mottram scored his first goal in six years when he headed home the opening goal in his teams Exeter and District Youth League 7-3 win over Brixington Blues.
The gale-force wind blowing end to end, favoured a team in each half. After the Mottram header, two own goals followed before Lewis Blackwell and Corey Leisk netted to give Town a 5-0 lead in a half that saw them play with the advantage of that gale! After the break, Blues hit back, but a Tom Foster double put Town back in total charge. Blues kept going and scored twice more, but Town deserved to win.
Coach Jon Leisk said: “All the boys – on both sides – deserve plenty of praise for the way they played in a match that was dominated by the wind. It made playing a normal game almost impossible! That said my lads coped very well and really did a good job.”
