Millwey Rise second team were severely depleted with no fewer than eight regular team members called up to help the club’s first team and so their 3-2 win at Honiton thirds really was a result to savour for all concerned, writes Dick Sturch.
Millwey took a second-minute lead through Tim Phillips only for the home side to level eight minutes later.
The first half saw one more goal and it came when Matt Rockett bundled a corner kick across the line to send Millwey into the break with a 2-1 advantage.
Honiton levelled for the second time midway through the second half. However, it was no more than Rise deserved when, with five minutes remaining, 16-year-old Mikey Sayers netted what proved to be the winner.
Youngsters Dan Rowe, Ben Webb, Mikey Sayers and debut-making Finlay Cox all impressed in a terrific team performance.
On Saturday (February 23) Millwey Rise second team travel to Tedburn St Mary Reserves (3pm).
