Honiton Youth Under-14s serve up improved performance at Lympstone

Honiton Youth Under-14s travelled to Lympstone Rangers on Saturday where they gave a much improved performance despite eventually losing 3-0.

With the surface a trifle slippery underfoot from the previous few days weather, both sides gave a good display of passing football and Honiton felt a little unlucky to reach half-time one goal down.

Honiton started the second half well and pushed for an equaliser, but the conditions worked against keeper Will Whitworth, when the ball squirmed from his grasp to allow Rangers a second goal.

Whitworth later more than made amends with a couple of fantastic saves, including one super reaction stop from a point blank effort that seemed destined to find the back of the net.

The hosts then finally put the game beyond Honiton with a smart turn and finish from the edge of the penalty area.

Other players to join Whitworth for praise included Harvey Newton, who continued his recent improvement plus Becky Rose and Laura-Beth Outram who worked hard throughout.
