Upottery Reserves shared four goals in an entertaining Macron League Division Six game with hosts Cheriton Fitzpaine.

Upottery, playing uphill and against the wind, found themselves 2-0 down inside the first 20 minutes.

However, they did not let their heads drop and they gained a foothold in the contest after half an hour.

Jay Williams was upended in the area and the referee duly awarded a penalty which, which after quite a bit of gamesmanship from the Cheriton players, Brad Morris slammed home to leave the score 2-1 to the hosts at the break.

After the restart, Upottery were full of optimism knowing the elements and the slope were with them, and, 10 minutes in a Brad Morris free-kick was turned home by Owen McCreadie-Taylor to level things up at 2-2.

Upottery continued to press and had several opportunities, but just couldn’t find the finish.

All in all after being 2-0 down early on, a point was probably a good result, but Upottery travelled back to East Devon reflecting on the fact that they had missed a glorious chance to bag an away win.
