Upottery Reserves swapped places with Queens Head to move into fourth place in the Macron League Division Six table after an impressive 4-1 win at the home of the Exeter-based club.
When the sides had met at Glebe Park earlier in the campaign the Exeter side had won the game by a single goal.
Both teams made slow starts to the game before the action burst into life with Cody Tratt-Skinner picking up the ball outside the area, before setting himself and unleashing a tremendous left-footed strike that left the home side stunned and gave Upottery a 1-0 interval lead.
It was a terrific opening 10 minutes of the second half that saw Upottery score three more times with Tratt-Skinner completing a hat-trick and the third was a fantastic team goal – the ball being crossed in by Tratt-Skinner for Harry Leisk to drill it along the goal line prior to a neat finish from Owen McCreadie-Taylor.
With the score at 4-0, Upottery looked very comfortable, but unfortunately switched off momentarily 10 minutes from end and gifted Queens Head a consolation goal.
