A week after all three of the Honiton Town senior sides were victorious just one of the three was celebrating continued success on Saturday night.

That’s because both the first team and the reserves suffered away cup defeats, but the third team kept the Hippos flag flying with an AS paving Devon Intermediate Cup penalty shoot-out success in South Devon against Upton Athletic.

The Hippos first team went down 3-0 at Torridgeside to exit the Walter C Parsons Funeral Directors League Cup at the first round stage.

The score line does not reflect the part Town played in a good contest. Indeed, the Man of the Match award for the home side went to their centre half!

The Town second string were beaten 6-0 at Thorverton to go out of the Firewatch Devon Senior Cup at the first hurdle.
