Upottery Reserves were worthy winners of the Macron League Division Eight match-of-the-day, beating the Tigers 2-0 at Glebe Park.

In a first half that was played, for the much part, in the Axminster half, saw both teams fashion chances, but neither were able to capitalise on their opportunities.

That al changed within minutes of the restart! When Upottery were awarded a free-kick some 20-yards out, Brad Morris stepped up and rifled the ball home.

The goal settled the home team who began to pass the ball with confidence. The Tigers gave as good as they got, but the outcome was settled in the 70th minute.

The build-up involved Dan William, Brad Morris, and eventually, Jay Williams, before the latter applied the finish.
