Seaton 2, Honiton Town 1

Seaton Under-15s completed a seven-day double over Honiton Town, writes Andrew Franklin.

Just a week after the teams shared ten goals. With Seaton the 7-23 victors, this proved to be a much closer encounter. Honiton were stronger than the previous week, but this contest was as much about the respective team’s battle against the elements, a gale force wind and riving rain! The first half saw Honiton have the advantage of the weather and this forced Seaton to defend in depth. They did this very well being broken down just the once and half-time arrived with the one goal separating two well-matched outfits.

After the break Seaton had the elements and their defence effectively shut out the visitors hopes of a second whilst, at the other end a Max Richardson free-kick was powerfully headed home by Ollie Binion to level the score.

The winning goal followed shortly after with Cameron Gould scoring. Thereafter the Seaton defence saw their side to a deserved victory.

This was an outstanding Seaton team performance with goal keeper Lewis Pearson worthy of special mention for his shift, but the undoubted star and winner of the Man of the Match award was the influential Max Richardson.
