Honiton Youth u8s v Ottery (8-1) and Feniton (2-3)

Honiton took a fifth minute lead against Ottery direct from a Liam Osborne corner, writes Garry Osborne.

Soon it was two with a Bailey Williams strike. Honiton continually attacked and were caught on the break by Ottery to make it 2-1. However, Honiton kept going with goals by, player of the day, Jacob England and Liam Osborne to lead 4-1 at HT. They played even better after the break and soon it was five with a great strike from Jacob England. Man of the Match, Bailey Williams then took over scoring three more to make it a resounding win.

Honiton then played a very good Feniton team and soon trailed 1-0 but battled really well with some great goalkeeping from Isaac Lidster and hard work from Harvey Haysom, Jamie Salter and Peter Osborne.

In the second half Honiton found themselves two down but rallied with two great goals by Liam Osborne from assist by Jack Beaven and Tyler Pendrick respectively. Feniton edged it late on. Liam Osborne got Man of the Match for great defending in the first half and his goals in the second half.

Tired legs and tired minds, and Colyton’s appetite to win more in the second half in particular cost Honiton dearly, writes Richard Ayres.

Honiton started brightly and were without a doubt the better side in the first half although they came off the field trailing 2-1.

A hotly disputed penalty decision made by the referee put Honiton on the back foot against the run of play, although they did get back into the game with a goal straight from a corner.

Colyton increased their lead early in the second half and Honiton could not respond at all despite a few chances.

Colyton’s team wanted to win more, and that sums up Honiton’s performance today.
