Feniton Under-16s consolidated their top three position in the Exeter and District Division One after winning the ‘game of the day’ meeting with Elmore at Acland Park 1-0.
Fenny showed their class by playing the better football throughout in an entertaining match. An attacking formation saw Feniton take the game to their opponents with Oscar Walsh and Garreth Blackmore going close early on after strong runs.
However, the deadlock was broken on 20 minutes when Jack Hobday exquisitely chipped the advancing defenders into the run of scorer Oscar Walsh to give Feniton a deserved lead which they held until half-time.
The second half was equally competitive with the Feniton midfield trio of Hobday, Jacob Turner and James Woodward controlling the game. However, Elmore continued to press, but a fantastic save from Feniton’s goalie Sam Hill kept the clean sheet intact.
The Man of the Match award went to Feniton midfielder James Woodward.
