Seaton Under-16s staged a superb comeback to recover from 3-1 to take a share of the spoils in a 4-4 draw with Pinhoe Spartans in an Exeter Youth League meeting.
Seaton took the lead with a fabulous goal from Lewis Cottam. However, some slack defending allowed the Exeter side to level and they scored a quick second to take the lead. The visitors seemed to grow stronger as the first half wore on and they scored again to lead 3-1 at the interval.
Words were said at the break for Seaton clearly had an extra yard in their stride in the second half, and scored twice to level things up only for the Spartans to take a 4-3 lead. Parity was restored from a late penalty to ensure both sides took something from the game.
Seaton boss Ian Franklin said: “The boys did not show their normal flair and team spirit in this game. It’s thankfully not something we have seen this season before. What happened was that they made hard work of what should have been an easier game.”
The Seaton Man of the Match award went to Pete Smith.
