A depleted Honiton Town thirds were beaten 3-2 at home by a very strong visiting Upottery Reserve said that is looking a certainty to secure the Fresha league Division Nine title.

Town found themselves three goals down before mounting a superb fight back and very nearly got themselves a point for their terrific efforts.

Rowan Symonds was outstanding in goal and kept the score down with several top class saves. A Jake Isaac header began the fight back and, when skipper Ryan Pike netted the second Upottery’s hold on the game was slipping!

However, the visitors saw the game out thereafter to deservedly bank the points.

Team boss Andrew Pike said: “I am so proud of each and everyone of my players. They al put an immense shift into a game that was always going to be a tough one for us. Hopefully this has showed all involved that with a bit of belief and a lot of effort we can match anyone, we are on course for a decent finishing place in the table which would be excellent in our first season in the league and with so many young prospects in the team.”
