    always causing problems for the Moors defence Both teams had their chances but a draw for the top two was probably a fair result Well done to both sets of boys Although there was some outstanding individual performances MAN OF THE MATCH FOR THE JETS WAS THE WHOLE TEAM Sidmouth 3 4 Dawlish United Dawlish came to Sidmouth off the back of a good win against Pinhoe and hoping to put aside their quick exit from cup competition on their last encounter with Sidmouth Dawlish knew they would need to be on top form to come away with anything from a well organised Sidmouth side Within the first 10 minutes Dawlish struck first with some clever one touch football on the edge of the area between Jamie Middleton and Corie Cleave which lead to the first goal Cleave s shot from outside the box skimming over the goalkeepers outstretched hands and dipping under the crossbar Dawlish kept up the momentum with Jamie Middleton s great run resulting in goal number 2 for Dawlish Dawlish going into the half time break leading by the brace Sidmouth took the game straight to Dawlish in the second half and after absorbing intense pressure Dawlish found themselves level and then soon going 1 goal behind after 3 quick goals from Sidmouth This stirred Dawlish into action and made for a very exciting finish Luke Morgan running on to a fabulous through ball and slotting the ball neatly home to put Dawlish level Then with only minutes remaining Corie Cleave became the match winning hero and man of the match scoring the winning goal for Dawlish Pinhoe 3 5 Dawlish United Two second half strikes from man of the match Jamie Middleton helped Dawlish wrestle the game from a hardworking Pinhoe side Dawlish started brightly with Matt Ranger doing well to create an opportunity for Jack Arnold whose effort struck the post and Corie Cleave set up Luke Morgan but he shot wide The near misses sparked Pinhoe into life and it took a great reflex save from Sam Neal to keep them at bay however the reprieve was only temporary United failed to deal with a cross and despite Neal doing well to get his hand to the shot the ball crept inside the post Both sides spurned opportunities before a great run by Middleton into the heart of the Pinhoe defence put him through he unselfishly passed to the unmarked Luke Morgan to apply the finish United were unlucky not to go into the break ahead when a Max Norey volley flashed just past the post Pinhoe started the second half strongly and it took two smart stops from substitute goalkeeper Harvey Hannaford to deny them However there was nothing he could do when more slack defending from a corner saw United fall behind again The industrious Max Armitage played a clever pass on the edge of the Pinhoe penalty area to create a chance for Jack Arnold which he neatly tucked inside the far post United were soon in front for the first time with Middleton getting the pick of the games goals There seemed little danger when he picked the ball up on the left hand side he cut inside and drove towards the hosts penalty area before unleashing an unstoppable strike just inside the post Pinhoe responded well and restored parity when United again failed to deal with a corner the ball crashed back off the bar and was only half cleared before being thumped into the roof of the net from the edge of the area The goal mouth action continued at both ends with the most notable effort being an Arnold left foot shot which just cleared the bar With time running out Pinhoe s luck appeared to be going with it when Cleave pressurised a defender into an own goal which gifted United the lead and a subtle left foot lob from Middleton made the game safe STOKE HILL 0 7 ALPHINGTON JETS Alphington remain top of the table after a dominating performance against a good footballing Stoke Hill Olly Johnson and Tom O Shea went close for the Jets before James Davis opened the scoring drilling the ball top corner when in on goal Olly Baker scored the 2nd when he won the ball in the penalty box and slotted the ball in the far corner The commanding partnership of Will and Toby in the centre of defence were well supported by Josh and Ben who linked up well with Jack and James on the flanks Stoke Hill started brightly in the second half before Charlie Khan scored at the far post after some great work from Olly Johnson and George Rae Mike Bruce added a sweet 4th with the outside of his left foot into the far corner Luke Bradford headed home from 10 yards following up at the far post after another flowing Jets move Olly Baker scored his deserved 2nd when Toby cleverly found him unmarked at the back post and Olly s determination bundled the ball over the line Charlie Hart was strong at right back and Keeper turned centre half Liam Stamp were instrumental in the final goal of the game Tom picked the ball up outside the box and powered his way in before dispatching the ball left footed into the roof of the net Stoke Hill continued to play some neat football and were certainly played their part in an entertaining game that was well refereed by Mckenzie Dawlish United 8 2 Crediton After their last two disappointing defeats Dawlish United came back fighting The first half saw Dawlish taking control with some excellent passing and team work from Man of the Match Corie Cleave who was unfortunate to see his early shot hit the cross bar Soon into the game Dawlish created their first corner Jamie Middleton s powerful touch put the ball to the back of the net shortly after a fine shot from Corie Cleave hit the net to make it 2 0 After ten minutes Crediton broke through the Dawlish defence giving them their first goal Dawlish started to create a number of chances Elliot Keirle s volley and Jamie Middleton s header both hit the cross bar and a header from Corie Cleave and two great shots from Max Armitage and Jack Arnold all went narrowly wide Dawlish s strong defence Max Norey Sam Wright Matt Ranger and Jack Arnold held firm with only a few break throughs being easily saved by the keeper Sam Neal The goal of the match came from a 20 yard free kick when Corie Cleave sent a strike into the top corner Minutes before the half time whistle Crediton managed to a second goal making the score 3 2 at half time Minutes into the second half Jamie Middleton took on Crediton defence slipping the ball into the net Dawlish were determined not to let there manager Darran Armitage down and continued to create good chances a free kick taken by Cody Rackley only to see it blocked by Crediton s wall and a hand ball gave Dawlish striker Max Armitage a free kick which went just wide Good team work from Corie Cleave and Jack Arnold gave Elliot Keirle a through ball to earn Dawlish another goal Crediton 5 1 down still battled on and Harvey Hannaford s excellent goal keeping kept Crediton at bay Corie Cleave didn t give up and a neat pass to Luke Morgan and back to Cleave saw him knock the ball into the net for a well deserved hat trick Jamie Middleton then went on to show his determination for United running the ball pass Crediton s defence for him also to secure his hat trick Then to round up the match Cleave laid a ball to Max Armitage who dribbled the ball to punt it home for a 8 2 victory ALPHINGTON JETS 3 2 SIDMOUTH With both managers watching the England rugby together thankfully the game to follow uplifted everybodys spirits and with the wind behind them the Jets scored for the second week running in the first minute A flowing attack with Olly Johnson beating two defenders slipped the ball to Tom O Shea who outpaced the defence drew the keeper and slipped the ball for the industrious Charlie Khan to slot home Oll y Baker continued his good form winning the majority of the midfield battles Tom and Olly looked dangerous up fron with James Davis slotting balls through causing problems Jack Bunclark worked hard to give the team balance Tom scored his deserved goal when through one on one with the goalie for the third time He moved the ball from right to left foot and hammered home from 10 yards Liam again looked on his game for the Alphas with the back four being kept on their toes by the speedy talented front line of Sidmouth In the second half league champions Sidmouth showed their intentions early on and with the wind behind them forced Alphington back Jon Millars side started to pass the ball around fluently and deservedly scored when the ball was bouncing around in the penalty area Sidmouth were on top but the resolute Will Toby Ben Rooke and Josh stood up to the challenge It was great to see George Rae come on and play his first competitive game for the Jets since returning from Exeter City Charlie Hart Luke and Mike all came on to add a freshness to the Jets Sidmouth scored a great equaliser when the tall blonde midfielder turned on to his left and drilled it past the diving Liam to make it 2 2 It was great credit to the Alphas who again let a 2 goal lead slip and again rolled up their sleeves to go and grab the winner Olly Johnson made one of his powerful mazy runs before thundering the ball home Sidmouth pushed for the equaliser but the Jets hung on This was a game that neither side deserved to lose played in a spirit that under 13 s football is worthy of Man of the match WILL BENTLEY as decided by the Alphingfton sponsor Mr Rae ALPHINGTON JETS 3 2 EXETER CIVIL SERVICE In what at best could only be described as a scrappy game Alphington took all three points With both sets of boys knowing each other this was always going to be a competitive match which was excellently refereed by Stacey Ford in her 2nd full game in charge Within the 1st minute Alphington took the lead when Luke could only get one hand to James Davis shot that clearly crossed the line The referee showed alot of maturity in sticking by her decision even though she was put under immense pressure by the linesman and Exwick supporters From this point neither side played the football that they are both capable of with the midfield battle being won by ex Exwick captain Olly Baker and Charlie Khan for the Jets The lively Bradley Down almost equalised immediately when in on goal but Liam Stamp in his brightly coloured top saved well to deny him Charlie Khan scored a fortuitous goal when probably offside to make it 2 nil Civil pulled a goal back before the break when Bailey reacted quickest and hammered the ball home after a double save from Liam Jets Jack Bunclark was forced off the field prematurely when he was agriculturally upended stopping the game for 5 minutes whilst attended to Jets back four of Josh Ben Toby and makeshift centre half Luke made life difficult for the Civil front men to cause any real problems After half time the game started at a pace which was again exceptionally fast Civil started to win the midfield and Josh Mclean drilled a free kick towards goal and the usually mr reliable Liam could only fumble the ball over the line much to the delight of the Civil contingent Exwick now had the momentum and Alphington had to dig deep Liam made ammends for his earlier blip with assured hands when confronted by another Josh free kick From Alphingtons 1st corner Luke Bradford drilled the ball home from 8 yards after seizing upon the bouncing ball to awaken the home support James Davis nearly scored his 2nd when linking up well with Olly Joihnson and Tom but his effort struck the inside of the post and somehow stayed out as it rolled along the line George Hunt and Charlie Hart both had very good games in denying the dangerous left side of Civils attack Credit to both Olly Baker and the impressive Toby Madden for outstanding performances today in difficult circumstances MAN OF THE MATCH WAS THE TEAM TWYFORD 0 7 ALPHINGTON JETS Alphington continued their impressive start to the season with an emphatic away victory against a very spirited Twyford The Jets played some great football with Charlie Khan Olly Baker Jack Bunclark and debutant James Davis in total control of the midfield Captain Toby Madden opened his account for the alphas when he curled he curled the ball in from the edge of the penalty box The dangerous Tom O Shea always looked dangerous and scored a screamer when James Davis slid the ball into his feet Tom turned ran 30 yards and drilled the ball in from 25yards Man of the match Charlie Khan scored his 1st of 2 when he drove into the box and calmly slid the ball past the oncoming keeper Olly Baker hammered the ball into the roof of the net when given the opportunity from 18 yards The back four of Josh Toby Will and Ben thwarted every Twyford attack with keeper Liam Stamp looking more assured with every game With Mike Bruce running the defense ragged Tom O Shea scored his deserved 2nd making it 5 0 at half time The half time inclusion of Charlie Hart George Hunt and Luke Bradford helped the Alphas continue in the same vain Twyford number 7 Jones came more into the game and showed some great touches and awareness to encourage Twyford forward Olly Baker relishing his role in midfield scored number 6 when he powered home from 18 yards in off the crossbar Charlie Khan completed the tally again powering past the defense and slotting home MAN OF THE MATCH CHARLIE KHAN Moors Youth 6 2 Dawlish United Following an emphatic winning start to their season last week hopes were high that Dawlish would overcome a newly promoted Moors side who also won well in their last game Unfortunately United started slowly and were two goals down inside ten minutes against a host team full of confidence and playing stylish football Dawlish were never going to recover Moors added a third and could have had more before Dawlish managed their first effort on goal so lethargic was their approach to the game Two good stops from goalkeeper Harvey Hannaford prevented Moors from adding to their early strikes as they opened up the Dawlish defence with some fine passing which also created further opportunities The introduction of Cody Rackley helped steady the Dawlish ship as the visitors tried to play themselves into the game Jamie Middleton was Uniteds greatest threat linking well with Jack Wills and Sam Wright down the left hand side Elliot Keirle blazed over from a corner and Corie Cleave nearly capitalised on a rare mistake by the home defence as United began to wake from their slumber United s spirits were raised just before half time when they pulled a goal back Matt Ranger linked well with Jack Arnold who fired in a cross which was clinically finished by Wills To credit Dawlish they battled well during a tight opening to the second half with neither side creating any meaningful opportunities a long range Rackley drive the most notable effort However three good Moors goals in quick succession including a sweet volley from the edge of the penalty area killed off any faint hopes Dawlish had of recovering from their poor start A well taken Cleave penalty which he had won himself was at least some reward for their efforts HEMYOCK 0 HEAVITREE ROCKETS 4 Heavitree Rockets put in a very solid team performance to overturn a physical and hard working Hemyock team The Rockets started the game brightly and created some good early opportunities as Hemyock struggled to keep hold of the ball Deji Akinpelu once again caused the home defence problems with some strong running although the Hemyock backline were proving to be very stubborn and put themselves about very well to repel what was thrown at them Akinpelu however did give the Rockets the lead with a well taken goal with the outside of his right boot finding the bottom corner This spurred the home team into action who then enjoyed their best passage of play with Ashley Jaji prominent and some good interplay from midfield The Rockets defence had an outstanding match with skipper Tom Scrivens in the thick of the action with some great tackling and skillful dribbling turning defence into attack on more than a few occassions He was ably supported by the ever reliable Jack Moxey Zac Lee and Ben Howkins who again had a superb match at left back with some solid tackling and great distribution Rory Stewart Jordan King and the improving Nick Middleton worked hard in midfield as the first half whistle found the Rockets holding a slender 1 0 advantage The second half started tightly with Hemyock continuing to win a lot of loose ball but finding the Rockets defence in good form as they struggled to create a clear opportunity It was Akinpelu who then scored two quick goals to complete his hat trick and finally put a bit of daylight between the teams Firstly he converted a driven Ajay Dev cross into the roof of the net when sliding in before crashing in a low drive to make the score 3 0 Jack Williams in the meantime was in the thick of the action for the Rockets as he made a real difference to the attack as a second half sub He added a fourth after rounding the keeper and finding the net from an acute angle The Rockets then had their own mini miss of the season competition as first Deji Akinpelu rolled the ball wide of the post from an open goal after the keeper and defender had collided and presented him with the ball well if s O K for 50m pound man Torres I guess it s O K for Deji Jack Williams again showed good reactions to round the keeper shortly after but his low finish into the unguared net stuck in the grass and was cleared off the line Other chances came and went with Elliot Luxton also unlucky to see a shot cleared away after the keeper was beaten Final score 0 4 Overall a really good team performance with a few candidates for man of the match but it was decided that Tom Scrivens was the winner after a faultless and inspirational performance for his team at the back Great to see Max Mortimore back in a Rockets shirt after a hand injury with a typical all action and hard working display Hemyock proved very stubborn and strong opposition and despite missing key players gave Heavitree a scare for much of the match they will undoubtably cause problems for many teams on this showing Well done to all concerned CS Falcons 3 2 Sidmouth Vikings CS Falcons secured their first ever 11 a side victory over Sidmouth Town with a 3 2 victory at Sampford Peverell Oliver Elsworthy s powerful run and strong shot put them ahead and then William Birley s lay off resulted in Tom Bushby rifling a 25 yard shot beyond the keeper to send Falcons into then break two goals to the good After the break a delightful Tom Bushby pass released Mitchell Dart to make it 3 0 Sidmouth came back and finished strongly scoring two goals both from long range and were pressing at the end but falcons deserved to win the game Tom Bushby in midfield and Kieran Fry at left back had fine games for the Falcons Dawlish United 12 2 Stoke Hill Dawlish United u13 s hit 12 as they kicked off their Division 1 league campaign with an emphatic victory over newly promoted Stoke Hill Dawlish opened their account early on when Elliot Keirle used his head to loop the ball over the opposition keeper It took a further 10 minutes before Dawlish scored again but it was a fine goal with Jack Wills unleashing Jamie Middleton who confidentially hit the ball straight into the back of the net Keirle added a third before the visitors managed to pull one back This goal seem to kick United into overdrive and they scored another 3 within the space of 15 minutes to take a 6 1 lead into the break two from Wills and a spectacular goal from Middleton Manager Darran Armitage rang the changes at half time so to give the whole match day squad a decent run out Some careless play from United saw the visitors grab the first goal As has happened with the first conceded goal Dawlish bounced straight back when Wills got his hat trick when he converted a penalty after he had been brought down in the box Wills who was in free scoring mode hit another after he latched onto a superb threw ball from midfielder Nathan Rowland Dawlish weren t content and more goals followed from Keirle who notched up his hat trick Corie Cleave and Jack Arnold Manager Armitage praised the team congratulating them on their great start to the season with a fantastic team and some excellent individual performances Next weekend United have league and cup double header Saturday sees them travel to Exeter side Moors Youth another newly promoted side On Sunday they travel to Sidmouth and take on last year s league champions in the first round of Devon County Cup Alphington Jets 7 0 CS Falcons Alphington Jets took the game to Culm from the kick off with the midfield four of Olly Charlie Jack and George bossing the game Culm were not allowed to play their normal flowing football and it was no surprise when the Jets took the lead with a great strike from captain Olly Johnson from 30 yard lob Every Culm attack was met by the impressive back four of Toby Will Josh and Ben Rooke with the commanding Liam Stamp looking assured in goal Charlie Khan struck the bar with an outstanding free kick that was worthy of a goal Culm held out for the rest of the half and thwarted both Mike Bruce and Tom O Shea who both worked tirelessly up front In the second half the football played was again of a very high standard but this time with the end product of some goals Charlie Khan scored a screamer when put through by Luke smashing it in the top corner Second half sub Olly Baker opened his account for Alphington when he drilled the ball home from 25yards with his classy left after being set up by the unselfish Toby Madden Olly then won the ball with a great tackle that Luke lifted over the advancing keeper Charlie Khan scored his deserved second and Luke prodded the ball home for his second when a great passing move from Josh Olly and Charlie who cleverly slotted the ball through for Luke The ever improving Charlie Hart made some timely interceptions for the alphas and although the faces changed the pattern of the game never did Some fine saves by the Culm keeper kept Olly Charlie and Toby at bay but could do nothing with Mike Bruces penalty after a handball in the area Culm to their credit never gave up but today Alphington were worthy winners keeping thier first league clean sheet for over 2 years Excellent display boys MAN OF THE MATCH in a great team performance was OLLY JOHNSON ALPHINGTON JETS 2 2 THORVERTON The first game of the new season saw an excellent game between two evenly matched sides Thorverton started brightly and were denied by the ever improving Liam Stamp in the Jets goal Tom O Shea opened his account with a stunning strike from 25 yards that moved different ways before flying past Charlie in goal Alphington began to dominate the midfield with the hardworking captain Charlie Khan and the impressive Olly Johnson starring alongside Jack Bunclark and Luke Bradford A first class league debut from the assured Toby Madden ensured the Jets were in control Will Bentley again shone in his defensive duties In an end to end game Alphington went 2 0 up when Charlie Khan s corner somehow crept in the at the far post before half time Thorverton scored within a couple of minutes of the restart when the Jets failed to clear their lines and presented Jim Shephard to drill home from 12 yards giving Liam no chance It was soon 2 2 when Jim Shephard got his 2nd by reacting quickest when the corner reached the 6 yard box Alphington created some very good chances as the game entered the final quarter with Mike Bruce going close along with Tom Olly Charlie and Josh Charlie Hart and the returning Ben Rooke came on and contributed very well to an overall impressive performance from both sides MAN OF THE MATCH WAS THE TEAM League Cup 1st Round 27th November Culm Eagles 0 10 Heavitree Comets On a bitterly cold morning the Comets lived up to their name as they were on fire From the outset they dominated the game in all quarters and played some very intelligent football well above their years Culm tried in vain to defend the continual barrage but the trickery and clever footwork of Matt Preece Louis Phillips and Will Gregory was just too much The first half saw the Comets put 7 goals past Culm in a very business like fashion that the Comets have rarely shown this season That s not to say that Culm played badly as when they did get the ball they passed it around very well but it was simply the case that the Comets kept such good possession that Culm were unable to play The second half was really a continuation of the first but with the scoreline it was always going to be an uphill struggle for Culm to come back in to the game but in small spells they did However Jack Wheaton in goal was never really troubled and the Comets scored three more goals to end the game 10 0 The result now puts them through into the next round of the League Cup and the reward for their result is that they will actually get a bye straight through to the next round Praise should be given to every one of the Culm players who never lost heart and continued to play throughout the full 70 minutes in a spirit that many senior teams should look at as it was truly commendable The post match hospitality was also extremely good and no doubt very welcomed by all the players Goal scorers Louis Phillips 4 William Gregory 3 Matt Preece 2 Jonathan Kirk 1 Heavitree Comets 6 4 Crediton Saints 20th November 2010 A hard working performance saw the Comets overcome a spirited Crediton Saints team The start of the match saw the game flow from end to end as both teams searched for the opening goal The Comets then seemed to take control of the midfield forcing the Saints to defend resolutely However Crediton were defending high up the pitch and it was only a matter of time before the Comets got one right a through ball beating the offside trap allowing Jack Challice to gallop into yards of space before slotting home the opener The pattern seemed to be repeating itself and Louis Phillips grabbed a third in the same fashion shortly after Jonathan Kirk had bravely stuck in a leg to force the Comets second home from close range Crediton did get back into the match shortly before halftime failure to win the ball in midfield allowed the Crediton strikers to run at the Comets defence and a great ball into the box saw a well struck shot loop into the top corner giving Jack Wheaton in the Comets goal no chance Half time 3 1 Louis Phillips got his second of match to ease the Comets further ahead but as we have come to expect the Comets never like to make things easy for themselves A spirited Crediton side rallied and used their strikers pace to great advantage causing problems for the comets A great cross from the right saw the centre forward meet the ball with his head and with great execution he guided his header inside the far post Crediton then pulled another back and it looked like they may get something from the game However just at the right time man of the match Fergus Moore popped up on the edge of the area wrapped his foot around the ball and then stood back as his shot sailed into the top corner to restore the Comets two goal cushion 5 3 The Comets reorganised them selves at the back but were still having a hard time stopping the Saints Late on The Comets James Mattin added a diving header from close home and Crediton had also not finished as they added a fourth to their tally making the final result 6 4 to the Comets This was a great game to watch and provided some great entertainment especially for the neutrals but at times it seemed like hard work and some tense moments for both sets of coaches Comets Man Of The Match Fergus Moore St Martins 2 1 Heavitree Comets Another improving performance from the Comets in another game that saw them unlucky not to come away with at least a share of the points and indeed should have had the game wrapped up by half time A very bright confident start with a revamped five man midfield was just the order of the day as the Comets spent most of the opening 15 minutes in their opponents half and should have taken an early lead but clear chances in front of goal were wasted To a man each Comet ran and tackled tirelessly for the team When needed to they even did the untidy ugly things very well It was midway through the first half that the Comets finally secured the deserved breakthrough Close control and neat inter passing including several one two s sliced open the St Martins defence for James Mattin to slot home from close range Confidence was as high as the effort levels this only served for the Comets to compete all the more and great team spirit was evident in the increased amount of taking and encouragement coming from the pitch St Martins main threat was to look for the long ball but resolute defending from Edward McKenna Jeff Angila and Aaron Dare ensured that St Martins broke through on only a couple of occasions and when they did Goal Keeper Jack Wheaton was quick to sweep up possession in his area Half time came with the Comets leading 1 0 but perhaps it should have been 3 0 St Martins kept playing a good passing game and came strongly at the Comets at the start of the second half They enjoyed a lot of possession in and around the Comets penalty area and at times the Comets goal seemed charmed as snatched efforts went high or wide or indeed cleared off the line as the Comets fought to hold onto what they had worked so hard for It was not all defending as the Comets showed great pace to catch their opponents on the break and had two glorious chances to add to their tally However the St Martins pressure paid off when they won a free kick midway into the Comets half A very well flighted free kick saw a St Martins player get the slightest of headed touches but it was enough to steer the ball just inside the post 1 1 Both teams were going for all three points the Comets finishing in front of goal was still not as it should could be St Martins created good space and did have some very good attacks down the Comets left side and it was one of these that created the winner approx five minutes from time The Comets knew that they had deserved more from the game and pressed forward creating a number of corners However they were nearly caught by the sucker punch in the final seconds but all out chasing from Edward McKenna meant the St Martins forward pushed the ball to far in front of him allowing the Comets Goal Keeper Jack Wheaton to cap a fine performance as he raced out of his area to claim possession only to be fouled by the striker This was the final action of a very fine youth football match played where both sets of players were a credit to themselves their clubs and the league If the Comets can take this improvement and togetherness into their forthcoming matches points and recognition will be gained Goal Scorer James Mattin HYFC COMETS MOTM William Gregory Edward McKenna Honiton 3 2 Heavitree Comets A much better performance from the Comets this week in a game that saw them unlucky not to come away with at least a share of the points The first chance of a pulsating game fell to James Mattin who was through and running in on goal but the final touch evaded him sending the ball wide for a goal kick The Comets continued to press the ball in the early stages and after a great build up William Gregory was in on goal but fired wide Honiton were quick to react to the pressure of the Comets and against the run of play managed to steal a lead after the Comets defence lost concentration and the resulting effort gave stand in keeper Ed McKenna no chance with the score at 1 0 to the home side and with the wind behind them they took full advantage as the Comets still looked a little shaky at the back following the goal and witha well finished shot the lead was extended to 2 0 with another low powerful shot across the goal which left McKenna no option but to watch it sail by him into the goal The Comets were struggling to keep their shape and were second to everything for a spell but with 10 minutes of the 1 st half remaining they raised their game and started to cause Honiton problems at the back with Christian Elllis starting to boss the midfield and spreading the ball out to the flanks where Mattin and Louis Philips were beginning to make difference with their strength and pace and after forcing a corner just before the break the Comets could not find the gap after Jeff Angila delivered the ball into the area and although 2 0 down the Comets ended the half looking the better team The 2 nd half started with the Comets showing great determination to get back into the game and a long ball from Angila was picked up by Jonathan Kirk who made his move to skip past the backline before unleashing powerful shot into the back of the net making it 2 1 Comet s tails were now well up and they started to dominate for large periods of time creating numerous chances to equalise The Equaliser came when

    Callum Pringle 2 James Price Jacob Chadwick and an own goal completed the scoring A good team performance all round with some excellent passing moves complemented the result MOM Jordan Vittles U13s Cup Heavitree Rockets 8 3 Pinhoe Heavitree overcame Pinhoe in this entertaining and high scoring match to ease through to the second round of the Cup The Rockets began extremely brightly creating numerous chances against a Pinhoe defence missing key players They quickly raced into a four goal lead with a mixture of well worked goals and the odd gift from the away defence Ben Howkins was pushed up into attack from his usual left back position and opened the scoring with a sweetly struck shot after he had been denied by the post moments before He doubled the lead after a scramble in the box where after his initial shot was blocked it was played back to him by an unlucky Pinhoe player to have another chance which he gratefully took Deji Akinpelu then added two further goals including a beautifully struck shot over the keeper and at this point with the home side dominant it looked like Pinhoe could suffer a heavy defeat To their credit they continued to battle hard and struck a goal back before half time to reduce the arrears to 4 1 Pinhoe continued in the same vein in the second half piling on early pressure and getting a deserved second goal to give hopes of an unlikely comeback This proved short lived however as substitute Nick Middleton scored for the second consecutive week with a well placed shot into the top corner to make it 5 2 Deji Akinpelu then scored another trademark blistering free kick to complete his third hat trick of the season before Pinhoe again fought back firstly scoring to reduce the arrears and then missing a penalty after a good Curtis Holwell save Max Mortimore battled his way through before slotting under the keeper to make it 7 3 and Jack Williams scored the final goal after a lovely chip over the keeper from just outside the box A great all round team performance from the Rockets with James Welch having a fine game in defence with some great headers and strong tackling and Conor Goldsmith running his socks off in midfield again but MOM Jack Moxey for another hard working display in defence and some great distribution setting the team going on numerous occasions Well done to all CW Dynamoes 3 Brixington Utd 2 I wish to state for the record I was extremely impressed with the players supporters and management of Brixington the game itself was a joy to see from both sides and what added to the game was how the players were very sporting and never argued with the referee if decisions did not go their way This was matched by the management and supporters which led to an overall good spectacle of a youth football match today John Bryant CW Dynamoes Manager CW Dynamoes Matchday Report Captain Marvel Secures Injury Time Draw for Dynamoes The Dynamoes were in confident mood despite last week s defeat The early exchanges were even in the first half with the Dynamoes playing some lovely football with unfortunately no end product to show for With no goals to show for the football being played it was CS Eagles who took advantage of a mistake of the back to go 1 0 up Minutes later another mistake led to CS Eagles attacking the Dynamoes goal which led to them being 2 0 up The Dynamoes came out on the second half in even more determined mood and it was duly rewarded when George Nicholls galloped into the penalty area and fired home a low shot at the near post to score his first ever goal for the club to make it 2 1 This set the tone for the rest of the second half with CS Eagles determined to sit back and the Dynamoes determined to attack Efforts came for all over the park in search for an eqauliser however the Eagles defence were not in a giving mood It took until late into injury time for the equaliser to arrive Zach Norman received from the left and put in a cross which captain Corey Jones toe poked the ball into the net for his first goal of the season A well deserved point for all the efforts put in HEAVITREE ROCKETS 3 COLYTON KESTRELS 4 Colyton eventually emerged with all three points in this topsy tervy encounter which proved to be an entertaining and closely fought match It was the visitors who started brightly and creating the better opportunites although Deji Akinpelu shot narrowly wide for Heavitree after a lovely Ben Howkins through ball The Colyton pressure paid off when the centre forward ran onto a pass to easily slot the ball home This seemed to spur Heavitree on and they began to get a stranglehold in the game Ajay Dev was battling for all he was worth down the right and Max Mortimore Nick Middleton in the centre were getting more involved Deji Akinpelu hit a very sweetly struck equaliser and shortly after Nick Middleton hit a lovely shot which bounced just in front of the keeper which he couldn t keep out Half time 2 1 to Heavitree Colyton showed just why they are top of the league in the second half as they continued to press forward in search of goals The Heavitree backline dealt with the attacks well with Tom Scrivens catching the eye with some great tackles and barnstorming runs out of defence Dan Bennett also got in some crucial tackles and it looked like Colyton may be frustrated However the Rockets allowed too many crosses to be delived into dangerous positions from wide on their right Firstly a driven pass across the 6 yard box was fired home for an equaliser and shortly after a carbon copy goal turned a Colyton deficit into a narrow lead Heavitree pushed forward again with the influential Deji Akinpelu in the thick of the action and it was the powerful strikers beautifully struck free kick from distance which levelled the scores with a shot that the keeper found a bit too hot to handle 3 3 At this point the game was well and truly in the balance with a little over 15 minutes to go but Colyton completed the scoring with another sidefooted finish after yet another cross in from their left the third such goal coming from a similar position in just the second half The Rockets continued to press for an equaliser but just failed to capitalise and it was Colyton who were relieved to hear the final whistle Once again a pleasure to witness two teams giving everything and contesting a very fairly played and entertaining match Good luck to Colyton as they look strong title contenders but also very well played to Heavitree who can take great heart from running the league leaders so close and so nearly getting a point for thier hard efforts Heavitree MOM Tom Scrivens another all action display from the influential skipper but mention also to Nick Middleton for his best performance of the season in midfield Central U13 s 6 vs Brixington Utd U13 s 4 Both teams served up an exciting end to end encounter with Central coming out on top with a fine second half fight back Utd found themselves two goals down in the first seven minutes due to some sloppy marking and tackling in their own penalty area Matt Smith sparked Utd into life latching onto a long goal kick from keeper Alex Trevena Smith slipped the ball past the advancing Central keeper and coolly slotted home before the Central defenders could close him down Shortly after Utd were level Smith flicked on another long goal kick to Sam Skinner who advanced on goal and waited for the keeper to commit himself before side footing into the corner of the net With confidence high Utd continued to cause Central problems A Jason Mann free kick was only partially cleared Skinner reached the loose ball before Central s keeper and lofted a high ball to the far post for Luke Bland to fire home and give Utd the lead Central then came back into the game firing a free kick over the Utd wall but Trevena palmed away the ball for a corner Further Central attacks were defended well with Josh Bremner and Bradley Cotterell getting some timely tackles in A great tackle from Lewis Miller then stops a certain Central goal as Central cranked up the pressure Matt Smith then added a fourth Utd goal from yet another Utd corner With his back to goal he cleverly turned inside the box before thumping a shot high into the roof of the net Bayley Gray then almost added a fifth but shot just wide after some good work by Haydn Wakeling Right on half time Central reduced the arrears with a free kick on the edge of the box which Trevena could only parry into the corner of the net In the second half Central almost scored within seconds of the restart but shot just over the crossbar Utd failed to heed the warning however and shortly after Central did equalise as they beat the Utd offside trap to score Utd were having problems getting the ball out of their own half however a quick break out of defence resulted in a good exchange of passes between Mann and Thomas Sicklemore who teed up Smith to thump a shot just over the bar Central however continued to carved out and miss several good opportunities before finally taking the lead Jamie Waller then bravely blocked a Central attack before heading clear Utd again came back into the game but despite some good pressure and football they just couldn t create a clear cut chance With time running out and Utd committing more men forward Central broke away and scored a slightly fortunate sixth Utd Keeper Trevana raced back to his goal after being lobbed from the edge of the area he acrobatically flicked the ball onto post and as the ball rebounded across the face of the goal the Central forward reached the ball first to tap home But well played to both teams for serving up an exciting match BRADNINCH 1 HEAVITREE ROCKETS 7 Heavitree completed a tough week of 3 fixtures with a comprehensive win over a spirited Bradninch team The game began quite evenly with the first 15 minutes being goaless and with neither side fashioning many clear chances As the half wore on the Rockets began to get on top although it took a lovely move to break the stubborn home defence Conor Goldsmith was fed the ball out wide and he beat a man before floating an inch perfect cross onto the head of Jack Williams who made no mistake from close in with a firm header This seemed to boost an up until then lacklustre Heavitree team who then began to create more opportunities The normally reliable Deji Akinpelu who has been outstanding for Heavitree this season had left his shooting boots at home as he put the ball wide twice when clean through although his striking partner Williams was making up for it as he doubled the lead with a well taken strike before Akinpelu s shot was saved and Ajay Dev scored his first ever Rockets goal from the rebound as the keeper tried desperately to make up ground Half time 0 3 The second half belonged to the Rockets who were camped in and around the home box but failed to capitalise on a number of chances Williams completed his hat trick after unselfish work from Akinpelu and then Ben Howkins scored his first of the season with a fine run from left back and a lovely placed shot into the top corner to make it 5 0 Bradninch continued to work hard and were rewarded when a poor bit of play resulted in an indirect free kick being given away just inside the Rockets box A clever chip over the Heavitree wall and a tap in from close range reduced the arrears Some adjustments were made to the Heavitree line up and it quickly turned into the Tom Scrivens show Heavitree s ever reliable captain and stalwart centre half was pushed up into an unfamiliar centre forward position but rather than get a nosebleed through being over the half way line he showed his striking team mates how it could be done with an eventful 15 minute cameo Firstly he shot just over after making himself space then hit the post and finally scored his first ever league goal after a powerful run and calm finish across the keeper He then won a penalty after another strong run which he picked himself up from and dispatched a sweetly struck spot kick into the top corner Final score 1 7 Overall a good team performance in which Jack Moxey Nick Middleton Conor Goldsmith played really well and Dan Bennett was his ever reliable self at the back Rockets MOM Jack Williams just pipped Tom Scrivens after a confidence boosting hat trick and his tireless work up front paved the way for the Rockets 3rd win of the week Well done to the whole team as they look to begin very tough run of matches HEAVITREE ROCKETS 1 CENTRAL 0 Heavitree claimed their second narrow victory of the week with a very hard fought win against some very spirited opponents The game was played on a lovely surface at Exeter Arena and was a very evenly contested match with both defences on top for long periods The first half was very even with clear cut chances at a premium To be fair to Central they had players missing and were only able to field the bare eleven However they were a vastly improved team on the Central that Heavitree had beaten 4 0 just a matter of a few weeks ago and looked very lively in attack extremely solid in defence and were quite often quicker to the loose ball in midfield The Rockets also looked very strong in defence with Tom Scrivens marshalling the back four of Dan Bennett James Welch Ben Howkins and latterly Zac Lee very well In fact it took a few Scrivens last ditch tackles and interceptions on more than one occasion as Central looked dangerous on the break Losing the influential Max Mortimore in central midfield with a nasty ankle injury was a bit of a blow to the Rockets but Sam Vittles filled in and later on Nick Middleton came on and played very well It proved goaless at half time during 35 minutes which could have gone either way The Rockets were much improved after the break and began to impose themselves and create more chances as the game progressed and as Central began to tire The keeper pulled off a superb save to deny Deji Akinpelu who until then had been kept very quiet by the Central back four with Martin Porter in particular catching the eye with some great tackling and excellent reading of the game The tirelss Jack Williams who chased and harried hard throughout then missed a glorious chance for Heavitree when clean through just screwing his shot narrowly wide Eventually the deadlock was broken when the ball broke to Akinpelu in the box and he made no mistake thumping the ball into the top corner giving the keeper no chance Ben Howkins made some great covering tackles for the Rockets and some eyecatching runs out of defence and it was his through ball to Akinpelu who nearly added a second but shot narrowly wide A fantastic tackle from Porter then denied Akinpelu as he burst clear again Central continued to press but chances were at a premium with the Rockets defence holding firm A much improved second half from Heavitree with Jack Moxey and Conor Goldsmith in midfield having great games For the third consecutive match the Rockets were relieved to hear the final whistle Special praise to Central who on this level of performance and with missing players to return will pick up a lot more victories yet This game was further proof as to what a close league the second division is this season with most teams capable of getting a result in any given match Heavitree Rockets MOM Ben Howkins Solid defending great distribution running the ball out of defence and some strong recovering tackles Heavitree Rockets 3 vs Brixington Utd 2 United slumped to their fourth defeat of the season as they let a potential match winning position slip Heavitree Rockets deserve full credit for battling back from 2 goals down and eventually deserved their victory United took a tenth minute lead when an excellent deep cross from Matt Smith evaded the outstretched hands of the Rockets keeper for Ryan Tullett to bundle the ball into the net for his first goal for the club United doubled their lead when Thomas Sicklemore raced clear and thumped his shot into the bottom corner past the advancing Rockets keeper At that stage United looked comfortable as they controlled the lion s share of possession However as the weather deteriorated the Rockets battled back into the game and a powerful run by the Rockets striker ended with an excellent lob over United keeper Alex Trevena into the roof of the net United s fragile confidence took a battering and the Rockets physical strength dealt better with the appalling conditions It was no surprise when the Rockets equalised United only partially cleared a Rockets corner and as the ball was swung back into the area two Rocket forwards were played on side with time and space to thump home the equaliser An amazing goal line clearance by Jamie Waller and then Keiran Tullett whose goal line defensive header hit the bar before bouncing to safety kept United level at half time In the second half United defended the Rockets onslaught valiantly Keeper Alex Trevena made a number of great saves and Josh Bremner blocked a wave of Rockets pressure Despite good prompting by Sam Skinner in Midfield and some excellent runs by Jason Mann United just couldn t fashion a clear chance for the hardworking Matt Smith up front With fifteen minutes remaining the Rockets scored their winner when their striker thumped his shot under the advancing Trevana when clean through Despite working hard to the end United s energies petered out leaving them to rue not taking advantage of their first half lead HEAVITREE ROCKETS 1 SIDMOUTH VIKINGS 1 Recent games between these two teams have tended to be closely fought low scoring affairs and this game played out on a lovely morning was no exception The exact fixture last season ended in a rare goaless draw so both teams went one better literally this season as they played out an entertaining match in a very good spirit with both teams emerging with credit It was the Rockets who began the stronger and looking the more likely to break the deadlock with Conor Goldsmith and Max Mortimore prominent in midfield and Nick Middleton having his best game of the season wide on the right It was not long before the first clear cut chance came and went with a miscued shot from Max Mortimore ending up being a perfect pass to Jack Williams who was undoubtably taken by surprise and failed to connect from 6 yards out Williams soon atoned for his miss by scoring the opener just after 15 minutes when his initial shot was parried and he was quick to react to send the ball into the goal from an angle to give Heavitree a deserved lead They continued to press and Max Mortimore shot just wide when clean through Sidmouth were struggling to get into the game but Curtis Holwell had to be alert to keep out a stinging drive after a fine run past 3 defenders gave a sight of goal Half time 1 0 The second half was a completely different story and it was Sidmouth s turn to dominate and Heavitree s turn to try and weather the storm They were given a let off when a Sidmouth forward burst into the box and got to the by line by the 6 yard box With two unmarked Sidmouth players rushing into the box his cross was plucked out of the air by a relieved Rockets keeper Not to be denied Sidmouth continued to press and scored an equaliser after the ball was lost by Heavitree and played into the danger zone where a Sidmouth player emerged with the ball from a group of players and blasted the ball in from close range At the other end a well delivered Ben Howkins corner caused havoc in the box resulting in a scramble in the box and another corner shortly after fell to Jordan King who hit a lovely shot towards the goal that had the keeper well beaten but not a covering defender who did superbly to clear off his line Sidmouth were denied a winner when a well hit shot from just outside the area crashed against the crossbar with the onrushing Sidmouth player scooping wide with the goal at his mercy This proved to be the last clear cut chance of a very good match with Heavitree more relieved than their counterparts to hear the final whistle after a fine fightback Well played to both teams and thanks to Sidmouth for once again showing themselves to be a very friendly and well run club Jack Moxey and Tom Scrivens both had fine games but Heavitree MOM Curtis Holwell bounced back really well from last weeks disappointment with a strong performance confident handling and improved kicking HEAVITREE ROCKETS 3 BUDLEIGH SALTERTON 6 The Rockets were bought back down to earth in an entertaining but ultimately frustrating match against Budleigh Salterton which they eventually lost 6 3 in a topsy turvy encounter Budleigh started brightly but it was Heavitree who drew fisrt blood with a strong run and shot by Deji Akinpelu being parried into the path of the grateful Jack Williams who tucked the ball home from 6 yards It didn t take long before Budleigh equalised with a gift wrapped goal The left winger crossed into the box which Curtis Holwell in the Heavitree goal caught only to drop at the feet of a surprised Budleigh forward to blast into an open net It was now Budleigh in the ascendancy who then took the lead after some poor defending allowed another cross to be delivered into the box and a neat finish applied to make it 2 1 Rockets battled back with good vision and pace from Deji Akinpelu allowing him to race into the box and finish well to draw level again Not to be outdone Budleigh scored with a great finish from just outside the box after a Heavitree midfielder had dallied on the ball too long on the edge of his box rather than clearing his lines Once again the Rockets rallied with a fantastic strike from the impressive Akinpelu bringing the scores level at half time in a game that had swung both ways and looked like it could finish about 10 all The next goal would be important and sadly it came from another gift as the Budleigh right winger delived a hopeful cross into the box from the byline which the keeper watched and assumed was drifting over only to watch horrified as it dipped in over his head and under the bar at his near post to make it 4 3 With heads dropping after once again losing a soft goal Budleigh pushed forward with some great defending by Tom Scrivens and Ben Howkins keeping them out Rockets were denied an equaliser after a corner was adjudged to have gone out of play before landing in the six yard box where Jordan King blasted the ball home Now looking stronger and with Conor Goldsmith and Jack Moxey playing well in midfield chances went begging with Akinpelu s final finish deserting him twice and Jordan King sidefooting wide after running clear in the area A killer fifth goal was scored after a through ball caught the flatfooted defence napping and the Budleigh forward tucked it in nicely The scoring was completed when a poor goal kick landed at the feet of a Budleigh player who ran unchallenged into the box where his partially blocked shot trickled in at the far post past a static keeper which summed up his unfortunate day Well done to both teams for playing their part in a keenly contested and entertaining match Rockets MOM went to Tom Scrivens who was a powerhouse at the back and caught the eye with some barnstorming runs out of defence as well as some solid defending and tackling Certainly no reflection on Tom in central defence that 6 goals were conceded Brixington Utd U13 s 2 vs CS Eagles U13 s 1 Utd and Eagles served up a thrilling end to end encounter that was a credit to both clubs and the 2nd Division The result could have gone either way and Eagles will feel that on another day they could have got at least a point which their battling performance deserved It was Utd however who created the first chance of the game when a low Jason Mann cross fizzed across the six yard box and just beyond the outstretched boot of Hayden Wakeling A Utd corner was then scrambled clear by Eagles to the edge of the box Keiron Tullett won the loose ball and cleverly worked it wide to Mann whose pin point cross was directed just wide with a great header from Thomas Sicklemore At the other end Utd keeper Alex Trevena was forced into a great save by diving to his right to turn a stinging Eagles shot around the post following great Eagles build up play It was Utd who took the lead however when Sam Skinner slipped the ball wide to Mann whose low cross was steered home by Sicklemore whose shot wrong footed the Eagles Keeper This spurred Eagles into action and a period of pressure produced several chances to equalise Firstly Eagles sprang Utd s offside trap the Eagles striker did everything right but his shot was superbly smothered by the out rushing Trevena Seconds later Eagles were through on goal again this time the Eagles striker struck his shot early around the diving Trevena but just wide of the post Another Eagles shot lifted just over the bar shocked Utd into action and a well struck Bailey Gray shot was turned round the post by the Eagles keeper for the first of a series of Utd corners And from one such corner Utd extended their lead slightly fortunately for whilst the corner was well taken and directed it deflected off an Eagles defender and into the corner of the net Utd still had to defend well and Keenan Paver who is having a great season playing in defence broke up a dangerous Eagles move with a good interception to ensure Utd held onto their 2 goal lead at half time In the second half Eagles threw everything they had at Utd to get back in the game Several great opportunities went begging as Utd struggled to contain the excellent football being played by the Eagles It was only a matter of time before Eagles scored and when it came it was a cracker The ball was collected just inside the Utd half and the Eagles player surged forward skipped past a couple of tackles before thumping the ball into the bottom corner Utd s Luke Bland then produced a stunning last gasp tackle inside the box to prevent a certain Eagles equiliser Utd were defending brilliantly and special praise should go to Lewis Miller and Hayden Wakeling who both played unfamiliar roles at full back with great skill Unsung heroes Jamie Waller and Ethan Stoyles also produced important tackles as Utd weather the Eagles storm Waller cleverly guided the Eagles striker wide and away from goal to avert the danger and Stoyles just blocked everything that came his way As Eagles tired Utd regained their grip of the game in the closing stages Ryan Tullett had an excellent second half and was a real threat going forward Utd forcing a late couple of corners for the last action of an exciting encounter Both teams should be proud of their efforts CENTRAL 0 HEAVITREE ROCKETS 4 Heavitree Rockets maintained their good start to the season with a strong performance and a clean sheet in their first ever win over Central The Rockets started the game well but found the Central keeper Alex Davison hard to beat as he made some great saves to keep them out Central looked dangerous going forward with lively strikers getting in behind the Heavitree backline only to be denied by some great last ditch tackling with Daniel Bennett Tom Scrivens in particular having fine games It was the Rockets who opened the scoring with a second headed goal from a corner in successive matches This time it was hard working midfielder Max Mortimore who flicked it past the keeper from a well struck Ben Howkins corner Jack Williams again worked tirelessly in attack for Heavitree and and it was his unselfish pass from a Sam Vittles through ball that allowed Deji Akinpelu to make it 2 0 In the ascendancy Heavitree made it 3 0 with Jordan King finishing in style after the ball had pinged around the six yard box Curtis Holwell had a good game in goal for the Rockets and he had to be alert in the second half as Central began to get on top and create chances They were unlucky when a floated indirect free kick avoided everyone and sailed in at the far post only to be ruled out As the game opened up there were chances at either end with Jordan King scoring his second with a deflected drive and narrowly missing his hat trick late on when the ball rebounded back off a post There were no further goals and the final score finished 4 0 Rockets MOM Dan Bennett some great covering tackles and bought the ball calmly out of defence on numerous occasions but overall a good all round team performance Hemyock Under 13 s 2 Budleigh Salterton Under 13 s 1 On a glorious Saturday morning and the pitches at Longmead looking great Hemyock recorded their first win of the season The match started with both team s defence being very solid and both keepers not having much to do In midfield new signing Louie Allan and old hand Ashley Jaji were forming a formidable partnership The speed of Henry Fawcett and his younger brother Archie were beginning to cause problems for the Budleigh defence and it was no surprise when Ashley Jaji hit one of the hardest shots seen at Hemyock for a long time giving the keeper no chance So at halftime it was 1 0 to Hemyock Second half saw Budeligh dominate and it took a couple of smart saves from Mike Ellacott to keep the score 1 0 In the end a long ball over the top caught out Ashley Venn and Josh Allen and the Budleigh forward equalised with a great shot into the top of the net In the past the old Hemyock would have given up and probably lost this match but with Ashley Jaji all over the place and Archie making some great runs Hemyock managed to score the winning goal A great run from Ashley led to a shot which the keeper did well to get a hand on but it looped just over the line before the defender kicked it away The last 10 minutes were very frantic with Budeligh nearly scoring with the last kick of the game So it was very happy Hemyock at the end MOM Henry Fawcett Central 0 CW Dynamoes 4 On a bright sunny morning the Dynamoes looked to come to King George V to get 3 more points against Central The Dynamoes started the brighter and created some early chances behind the Central defensive line It wasn t long before the Dynamoes took the lead through Ryan Garrett Ryan quickly added a second Dynamoes goal Towards the end of the first half Central were awarded a penalty which had everyone confused as to why it was given The penalty was hit over the bar and this seemed to spur the Dynamoes on and Ryan Garrett duly completed his hat trick Central started the second half the brighter and were certainly determined to give the Dynamoes a good game and duly started to put pressure on the Dyanmoes goal Against the run of play Dynamoes scored a fourth goal coming from Callum Pringle Central were not beaten and had plenty of attempts on the Dynamoes goal However the Dynamoes defence was determined to keep a clean sheet and duly did so with some well timed tackles and some great saves from Jack Duffy All in all a great performance to maintain the good start to the season MOM Ryan Garrett Brixington Utd U13 s 5 vs Bradninch U13 s 0 Brixington Utd recorded their first win of the season against a battling Bradninch side Utd made a dream start winning a penalty within the first two minutes Sam Skinner found Jason Mann with a defence splitting pass out on the left wing Mann s cross found Thomas Sicklemore who was tripped before getting his shot in Up stepped Bradley Cottrell to score his second penalty in successive games Bradninch however recovered well from this early set back and had two chances themselves to equalise The first being a shot lifted over the bar from just a few yards out following a corner closely followed by a great shot from the edge of the box that beat Utd keeper Alex Travenna but flashed just wide of the post Both teams had further chances in a fairly even first half Mann was a constant threat for Utd with his dazzling runs down the wing and he and Keiron Tullett both went close with shots At the other end Trevenna had to come off his line on several occasions to thump the ball clear from on rushing Bradninch forwards It was United however who scored the next goal when Sam Skinner surged into the box before toe poking the ball past the keeper to give Utd a two nil lead at the interval Keenan Paver played a storming match at centre half alongside the excellent Luke Bland and they together with the hard working full backs Joe Walker Ethan Stoyle and Bradley Cottrell ensured that Bradninch were restricted to just a handful of chances in the second half Josh Bremner held off a challenge before shooting Utd s first effort of the half just wide Bailey Gray then cleverly found Thomas Sicklemore with a neat flick Sicklemore s shot was blocked but the ball ran loose to Jason Mann to score from close range Mann then scored a second and Utd s fourth when he cut into the box from out wide and whilst the Bradninch keeper twice bravely beat away his shots on goal Mann steered the ball home from a tight angle at the third attempt Mann then raced clear and seemed certain to score his hat trick but he unselfishly squared the ball to Keiran Tullett to score his first goal in Utd colours Lewis Miller and Hayden Wakeley both set up further chances for Utd with good work build up play but there were

    for the winner although Heavitree still had chances as well butpossibly a fair result in the end was the draw Well done to both sets of players for providing a very entertaining game and a good spectacle for youth football Special mention to the referee Rob Wilmott who judged the game to the best of his ability and was as fair as anyone could be in what we all appreciate is a very difficult job to do at any level Final well done to the Heavitree lads for finishing off a very satisfactory season HEAVITREE ROCKETS 0 V HEMYOCK 0 Heavitree began a busy weekend of football against a spirited Hemyock team who battled hard throughout These two teams played a really close fought match earlier in the season that the Rockets edged 4 3 Hemyock will have felt hard done by with the result that day but justice was served as Hemyock survived some scares to earn a hard fought point The first half was fairly even with clear chances at a premium Calum MacMartin hit the post for Heavitree after 15 minutes and the Hemyock keeper made some great saves bearing in mind he was only a stand in keeper I fear for the normal goalie regaining his place for his deputies inspired keeping and safe handling kept Hemyock in the match during the second half Hemyock had their moments with their strong midfield making some telling runs but both teams defences were definitely on top The second half was again fairly even but Heavitree began to gain a stranglehold on the game as it wore on A moment of controversy seemed the turning point as Jack Williams ran onto a through ball and poked the ball past the Hemyock goalie Queue celebrations for the home side as with just 15 minutes left it looked like one goal may settle it only for a flag to go up for offside This seemed to galvanise the home team who laid siege to the Hemyock goal for the last quarter of an hour but it was just going to be one of those days A mixture of good goalkeeping and some wayward finishing meant that the scoreline remained goaless for Heavitree s third draw and second goaless draw of the season Hemyock showed great spirit throughout with their performance showing that their position in the table is surely false Man of the match for Heavitree went to CALUM MACMARTIN who has played consistently well for a number of weeks and tackled and passed superbly HEAVITREE ROCKETS 2 V CULLOMPTON RANGERS 5 Deja vu as Heavitree suffered an identical scoreline to their opponents as the reverse fixture earlier in the season also finished 5 2 Cullompton showed that they are strong title contenders with a solid performance despite having some players missing The Rockets also missing 3 regulars battled well but couldn t cope with the speed and trickery of the games outstanding player Cullompton s Frank Rosenwald Rockets began well with Ben Howkins having the ball in the net early on with an offside flag ruling the goal out Cullompton then hit Heavitree with a quick double the 1st a tap in after a good team move and the second a well taken strike after the ball came back from a poor clearance Having already been denied a penalty after a good shout Cullompton were awarded a penalty at the second time of asking after an unlucky handball The ball was dispatched to make the scoreline 3 0 Jack Williams nearly reduced the arrears but stopped short when one on one with the keeper thinking he had been given offside when he hadn t and the unfortunate Howkins saw his shot agonisingly hit the post for Heavitree The second half was more even Deji Akinpelu had a fine game for Heavitree in midfield with his strength winning the ball for his team on numerous occasions It was his flicked header that looped over an under pressure keeper and dropped just over the line to make it 3 1 Howkins who switched to full back had a great game as did Calum MacMartin who filled in at right back but it was Tom Scrivens who gave a captains performance with some great last ditch tackles to keep Heavitree in the match He slid in with well timed challenges on numerous occasions to keep Cullompton s rampaging forward line out Frank Rosenwalds quick feet speed and ability were a highlight as twice his mazy runs ended in great finishes to complete a hat trick and make the score 5 1 Jack Williams who as usual gave 100 and ran his socks off was rewarded with a late consolation for Heavitree Man of the match for the Rockets was Tom The Bulldozer Scrivens Cully U12s win against fantatsically spirited West Hill Cullompton started very slowly but soon started to pass the ball around making it difficult for the 9 man West Hill team The pressure took its toll and Cullompton soon scored But all praise to West Hill they kept battling like you would not believe and played the better football The second half West Hill held strong for the first 15 minutes but succumbed to the relentless pressure of only having 9 men but still they scored 2 more good goals Final score was 11 3 but all praise must go to West Hill for their dogged determination and great team spirit never once giving up or dropping their heads WELL DONE FENITON 5 HEAVITREE ROCKETS 4 Feniton Heavitree Rockets played out a very entertaining nine goal thriller that was great for the neutral supporter and not so good for the coaches and supporters nerves The first 20 minutes were very even with both teams looking for opportunities without any success Feniton bagan to exert more pressure as the half wore on and looked the more likely to take the lead It was however a hopeful long ball that gave them an advantage with a Rockets defender misjudging the bounce of a clearance which the Feniton forward latched onto very quickly holding off a challenge and firing an excellent shot past James Welch in the Heavitree goal to give Feniton the lead A succession of very well taken corners were creating problems in the Heavitree box as athough both teams seemed reluctant to attack the ball there were numerous Feniton players unmarked on the edge of the box to put the ball back into the danger zone Two quick goals resulted and it was this bad 10 minute spell that eventually proved the Rockets downfall Just before halftime Heavitree grabbed a lifeline with a superb move The ball was fed out to the lively Jack Williams who pushed an inch perfect pass into the path of Ben Howkins who finished well to make the scoreline 3 1 to Feniton at half time The second half proved eventful with Feniton adding an early 4th with a good strike from the edge of the box which gave the keeper no chance Not to be too downhearted the Rockets then started to create better attacks with the ever improving Calum MacMartin having another good game in midfield Jack Williams who worked tirelessly throughout bravely charged down the keepers clearance collected the ball and knocked it into the net to make it 4 2 before Howkins used his pace to latch onto a through ball and fire home to make it 4 3 and game on Feniton didn t panic and scored a long range fifth and eventually decisive goal via a cross come shot which sailed over the unlucky James Welch and into the net Howkins completed his hat trick a minute later after another forceful run outpacing the home defence and firing through the keepers legs to make it 5 4 with ten minutes to play Jack Conway then had a glorius chance to even things up but just mishit his shot and both Williams and Howkins went close during a late onslaught Feniton were unlucky to not add further goals themselves hitting the woodwork no less than 3 times during the match and having other good chances to add to their tally Overall this was probably a fair result on balance with both teams deserving credit for their part in a hard fought but ultimately very enjoyable match Also special mention to the Feniton coach Rob Brown who refereed the match superbly and impartially whilst ignoring his undoubted desire to shout instructions to his team James Welch once again played well as stand in keeper for the Rockets He has played there 3 times this season and has always had a good game His versatility has proved very important for the Rockets this season Ben Howkins also played well with his second hat trick of the season but Man of the match went to Jack Williams whose tenacity and effort kept his team in it Cullompton 8 Hemyock 0 This was very much a case of men against boys as Cullompton showed what a good team they are as they tore apart a Hemyock side who were no match Hemyock did start well with Ashley Jaji making some strong runs and trying to link up with Liam Travers up front but each time they were stopped by a strong defence which gave the boys no room Eventually Cullompton opened the scoring and never looked back They had two boys in midfield that controlled everything and were very strong in the tackle The score at half time was 4 0 and eventually Cullompton scored another four to make the score 8 0 This was a real eye opener for the Hemyock boys Great credit should be given to Paul Kirby the Cullompton manager for rotating his side and taking his stronger players of as the score could have been a lot more OTTERY ST MARY 7 HEAVITREE ROCKETS 0 Heavitree once again served up one of their worst performances of the season against Ottery St Mary during this comprehensive defeat The Otters must look forward to playing Heavitree as they kicked off the season with an equally comfortable 8 0 victory and this was not much different Hindered by a few late withdrawals to key players and fielding the bare 11 players the Rockets started quite well and for the first 10 minutes or so the game was scoreless and reasonably even Ottery began to impose themselves and played some slick passing football to demonstrate why they have a 100 record so far The first goal came when the Rockets goalie was lobbed from close range with a second in identical fashion following shortly after 2 became 4 before half time after a mixture of poor defending and some good interplay from an impressive Ottery forward line The second half was pretty much one way traffic as Ottery dominated helped by some calamitous clearances Being overrun in midfield meant that the Heavitree strikers barely had a sniff of goal with the exception of a good 10 minute spell mid way through the half where at least the Ottery St Mary keeper was forced into a couple of saves Some poor Ottery finishing kept the scoreline in single figures with a seventh being added right on full time where Heavitree were relieved to hear the final whistle Daniel Bennett was superb for Heavitree in easily winning man of the match and if not for his intervention on numerous times the scoreline may well have been greater Curtis Holwell also played quite well in goal and came to his sides aid at times Heavitree should not be too down as Ottery are a very good team and are unbeaten for a reason playing some quick attractive passing football This also falls on the back of Heavitree having gone 5 games in the league unbeaten They will no doubt pick themselves up during a busy run of games knowing that they are unlikely to come up against opposition of this standard every week Well done to Ottery who showed that they are very strong title challengers HEAVITREE ROCKETS 2 v CULM EAGLES 2 Both Heavitree Culm fought out a great match played on a cold morning with honours eventually ending even There were doubts whether the game would get underway but eventually after an inspection and a change of pitch the game kicked off Heavitree started well and took the lead after only 3 minutes with a goal from Ben Howkins who provided a great finish with his left foot across the goal and in at the far post after good play from Jack Williams Both sides were finding clear cut chances hard to come by in an even half but Heavitree increased the lead just past 25 mins when the prolific Williams cooly slotted home his 16th goal of the season There was some fine build up play from Deji Akinpelu and Alan Needs who had his best game of the season by far battling on the left wing The half ended 2 0 to Heavitree with the back four of Tom Scrivens Zak Lee Jack Moxey and the ever reliable Dan Bennett holding firm The second half started just as Heavitree expected with Culm pushing to get back into the match and beginning to force themselves back into it Chances were begining to be created but a mixture of some great last ditch tackles and safe goalkeeping meant the scoreline stayed as it was The turning point came 10 minutes into the second half when Williams was bought down on the edge of the box and a penalty to Heavitree was awarded Deji Akinpelu stepped up confidently and powered a hard shot at the goal but unfortunately it was straight at the keeper who got two hands to the ball and palmed it to safety where it was quickly cleared This seemed to inspire Culm who grabbed a lifeline a few minutes later with a goal from James Brown and a second from the same player followed shortly after to make the game even Despite this quick turnaround in fortunes Heavitree refused to fold and both teams traded chances with Culm having the better of the second half A good chance was missed when a Culm player went through one on one but pushed his shot wide At the other end Ben Howkins just missed out on a lob over the keeper The final whistle bought an end to an entertaining and hard fought match with a fine fight back from Culm showing why they are strong challengers for the title The Rockets however must take heart from their best performance of the season and giving a very good team a very tough match The outstanding Calum MacMartin had a fine game for Heavitree in midfield but man of the match went to Tom Scrivens who was superb in defence all day for the Rockets and helped earn his side an excellent point against the league leaders Well done to both teams BRADNINCH 3 v HEAVITREE ROCKETS 5 Bradninch Heavitree fought out a keenly contested match where both teams let a lead slip before Heavitree came out on top The Rockets started brightly despite only having played once in the last few months with the lively strike pairing of Jack Williams and Ben Howkins giving the home defence problems It was only 3 minutes before a fine ball from Williams released Ben Howkins to blast the ball home It was 2 0 shortly after with Williams who worked tirelessley throughout adding a second after a good move down the left Any aspirations of thinking this would be a comfortable win were quickly dispelled as the home side showed great character to fight back Fresh from their first win league the week before Bradninch came storming back at the Rockets with a defensive slip allowing the centre forward time to cooly slot home An equaliser shortly followed with an incisive finish to beat the keeper to a ball played in to the near post The turnaround was complete with another fine strike from just outside the box which gave Bradninch a 3 2 lead It remained like this until Williams added an equaliser before the break for the teams to turn around at 3 3 in an entertaining first half with both teams rueing missed opportunities to have extended leads whilst in front The second half was a different story as chances were fewer and defences seemed a bit more organised Tom Bulldozer Scrivens was marshalling the Rockets defence superbly which restricted Bradninch to just a handful of half chances At the other end chances came and went and as the time ticked on and it looked like it would be a frustrating end to the match It took 2 pieces of individual magic to seal the game for the Rockets Firstly the impressive Ben Howkins picked the ball up just outside his own penalty box He ran at the home midfield and was lucky to break through a couple of tackles He then surprised the home defence by pushing the ball through a gap and outpacing the last man and slotting the ball in to score his second and give the Rockets the lead After a few scares it looked like this would be the final score until with virtually the last kick of the ball debutant Deji Akinpelu scored with a wondeful long range shot to complete the scoring and give the Rockets a 5 3 win to move them up to fourth in the table Bradninch must come out of the game with great credit and they showed how much they have improved as a team having lost the reverse fixture 9 2 they battled very well throughout and will surely pick up more points as the season goes on with the same attitude A relief to have finally played some football Heavitree Man of the Match Daniel Benett Great battling tackling and distribution especially in a much improved second half SIDMOUTH RAIDERS 0 HEAVITREE ROCKETS 5 Sidmouth Raiders and Heavitree Rockets kicked off early due to a fixture clash with Sidmouth Warriors also being at home on the same morning The cold and damp conditions weren t ideal but both sides put in a wholehearted performance The Rockets started much the stronger against their opponents who battled well with a weakened team and only 10 players The Raiders defended deep getting bodies behind the ball and made life very difficult for the Rockets who were dominating but finding clear cut chances hard to come by Heavitree were restricted to several long range shots that failed to seriously test the home keeper and a few half chances that went begging Raiders continued to battle hard with some good tackling and strong challenges keeping the Rockets at bay As the half wore on the Rockets continued to press and were eventually rewarded just before half time when the excellent Ben Howkins outstripped his marker who up until then had shackled him very well and blasted a fine shot with his left foot across the goal and into the far corner to put them 1 0 up at the break With the Rockets keeping substitutes rolling due to the cold conditions and the Raiders begining to tire the game opened up in the second half The Raiders abandoned their deep defending which had served them so well in the first half and pushed players up in search of an equaliser This created a lot more space for the quick Jack Williams and Ben Howkins to exploit and they took their chances much better A second goal was scored by Williams after excellent work by Calum MacMartin and a third soon followed after a superb one two between Howkins and Williams who were now linking up very well resulted in the former adding his second of the game He soon repaid the compliment with a fine cross for Williams to slot in and then Williams completed the scoring and his hat trick by beating the offside trap and a race with the keeper to slot in The Rockets defence of the superb Dan Bennett Jack Moxey James Welch Tom Scrivens and Zak Lee were outstanding leaving Curtis Holwell a virtual spectator for much of the game in the Heavitree goal The only downside of the match being a late injury to skipper Tom Scrivens which we all hoping is not as serious as first feared Heavitree Man of the Match Tough decision but given to James Welch for a series of strong commited performances and some good tackling and passing Bradninch 4 Hemyock 8 On a very wet and sticky pitch which did not allow for to much good football this was a good honest game between two evenly matched sides in which the boys should take great credit for giving the watching crowd a great game Hemyock started well and quickly took a 2 goal lead scored by Liam Travers and the impressive Ashley Jaji As usual with Hemyock they then sat back and allowed the improving Bradninch back into the game to make the score 2 1 The speed of Liam Travers up front was the major difference between the sides and he completed his hat trick before half time Second half saw the Bradninch boys batter the Hemyock goal and it took some great saves from Jack Churchill to keep the score the same The scoring then became very even with each side taking it in turn to score Liam Travers ended up with 5 goals and man of the match Ashley Jaji 1 Mike Ellacott 1 and Jordan Travers up from the back ramming home his goal Again credit to both sides for making the game so exciting Feniton matchday Report Feniton struggled their way to a fourth win of the season against a weakened but determined West Hill team Tom Gurney opened the scoring in the second minute with a long range effort that looped over the stranded West Hill keeper Feniton continued to press going downhill but weren t playing the passing football that had served them well this season After 15 minutes Joe Titmuss popped up at the far post to double Feniton s lead with a crisp finish into the roof of the net Feniton s third was delayed by an interesting refereeing decision Jack Lovegrove s shot hit the back of the net for his first goal of the season however the referee decided that on the way into the net it struck a West Hill hand and awarded a penalty To the bewilderment of the away supporters the referee then failed to dismiss the culprit for denying a clear goal scoring opportunity Feniton then compounded the error by missing the penalty Soon after Tom Gurney was on the end of a perfect Josh Tree cross to confirm the three goal lead West Hill to their credit never gave up and with James Mattin at the heart of most of their good work West Hill got a goal back A shot from the left beat the keeper and came back off the post and after a minor scramble the ball ended up in the back of the Feniton net The second half started with Feniton looking a bit more lively but when an excellent Josh Tree effort made the score 4 1 they thought their work was done West Hill soon put them right as they ran straight through the Feniton defence from the kick off for James Mattin to bring the deficit back to two goals As the rain appeared late in the second half the game descended into a scrappy battle with few claer cut chances Feniton remain fifth in the table but credit must go to all of the West Hill team who never stopped battling Heavitree Rockets 0 Sidmouth Warriors 0 Heavitree Rockets and Sidmouth Warriors played out a hard fought encounter in a game that neither side really deserved to lose The scoreline may indicate that the game was dull but in truth the scoreline didn t reflect the football on offer with the parents being treated to a game that at times went from end to end Previous encounters between the sides have resulted in a heavy defeats for the Rockets and they were keen to put that hoodoo to rest with a determined first half showing The defence was expertly marshalled by Tom Scrivens who was back to his best form in a strong display at the heart of the defence He was joined by Daniel Bennett Jack Moxey and James Welch fresh his heroics in goal the previous week and together they held firm against a Sidmouth team who pressed hard to take the lead Curtis Holwell played superbly in the Heavitree goal and made some good saves including a fine one handed save diving to his left from a well placed Sidmouth shot Looking dangerous on the break Heavitree pushed forward when given the opportunity and the tireless Jack Williams and Ben Howkins both took on the Sidmouth defence who also stayed resilient Going into the second half the Sidmouth team seemed to be retaining the ball better with some good runs from deep positions resulting in some half chances where only great tackling and delayed shooting kept the scoreline goaless Despite their territorial advantage the Rockets still continued to create some good opportunities with Alan Needs and Sam Vittles playing some fine balls through to the hardworking forwards Both teams continued to press in the final minutes with Sidmouth again having more of the ball in midfield but Heavitree clearing their lines well The best chance of the match fell late on to the Rockets Jack Williams who timed his run well ran onto a good through ball but agonisingly placed a well driven shot just wide of the far post That proved to be the last clear cut chance of a really good game with Sidmouth deserving great credit for once again showing themselves to be a well supported and organised team The Rockets have also shown massive improvement as a team in a game that they would have undoubtably lost last season Man of the match was a difficult decision but Jack Moxey has been a consistently good performer throughout the season in defence and so with a scoreless draw it seemed right that he should get the vote Well done to both teams HEMYOCK 3 HEAVITREE ROCKETS 4 Rockets Report Heavitree Rockets escaped with a win to remain in mid table during this keenly contested and topsy turvy battle that saw a very entertaining game played end to end Both teams contrived to take and subsequently lose the lead during a match that really could have gone either way up until the final whistle Hemyock will no doubt take heart from a very close match that they will feel hard done by to have lost The home side started the stronger and dominated the early stages although the Rockets slowly gained in confidence the longer the game remained scoreless and began to impose themselves as the half wore on It was 20 minutes before the 1st goal with a long range cross come shot which deceived the keeper and bounced into the far corner Hemyock responded quickly with a long range strike giving James Welch no chance in the Heavitree goal Just before half time Ben Howkins scored his second of the game with a fine run and placed shot into the far left hand corner to make the half time score 2 1 to Heavitree The second half started with Hemyock dominating proceedings and they deservedly equalised with a good shot again giving the keeper little chance They were cruelly denied another goal that their dominance deserved after a shot was cleared off the last by the excellent Daniel Bennett Ther may have been some debate as to whether it had crossed the line but the referee and linesman were not convinced so play resumed The home side pressure continued and they took the lead after some hesitation from the Rockets defence and some quick play from Hemyock which resulted in a calm shot across the keeper and into the net to give them the lead for the 1st time This seemed to give the Rockets a wake up call they needed and they showed great character to battle back with Hemyock inviting pressure through maybe being to anxious to secure a first win of the season Ben Howkins twice showed the defence a clean pair of heels to have great chances to equalise with the keeper pulling off some superb point blank saves to keep the home side in front Alan Needs eventually got the equaliser after a cruel deflection left the keeper wrongfooted and at this point it really was anybody s game With a little under 2 minutes left Ben Howkins completed a great hat trick with a beautiful shot into the top corner restoring Heavitree s advantage Not to be outdone Hemyock pushed forward and only a fine late save from stand in keeper Welch kept Hemyock out as he plunged low down to his left to hold onto the ball almost on the line Relief for Heavitree at the final whistle but on this performance Hemyock don t deserve to be where they are in the league and they can take heart from knowing that a win surely isn t far away Great performances from Jack Moxey Dan Bennett James Welch but Man of the Match to Ben Howkins for a great hat trick and all round play surely one of Heavitree s most improved players of the season Hemyock 3 Heavitree Rockets 4 In what was the best match of the season Hemyock were very unlucky to come away with no points The first 10 minutes belonged to Hemyock with fine build up work but with no rewards Heavitree slowly got into the match and scored first with a cross come shot which gave James Churchill no chance in goal This goal gave Heavitree heart and it took a great save from James to keep the score 1 0 Hemyock finally found the back of the net when a slice shot from Josh Allen sailed over the Heavitree keeper Heavitree went 2 1 just before half time when a great run from their number 11 was cooly finished as he slipped it past James in goal Second half started and it was all Hemyock and it was no surprise when Jack Aldred turned 2 defenders to score a great goal to make it 2 2 This quickly became 3 2 when a superb flick on from man of the match Ashley Jaji allowed Liam Travers to shoot past the Rockets keeper Hemyock then seem to sit back and the Rockets had 2 or 3 one on ones which they did not finish because of great defending or good goalkeeping Eventually they did manage to equalise with a deflected shot which gave James no chance The game seemed to be heading for a draw which would have been a fair result but with 1 minute left on the clock the Rockets number 11 hit an unstoppable shot into the top corner Still Hemyock had one more chance but Tom Perry shot was well saved by the keeper down to his left So it was a very disappointed Hemyock at the end but the parents and coaches were very proud of the great football that was played Mention should go to the Rockets for making it such a great game Culm 4 2 Sidmouth Culm United entertained Sidmouth Warriors in a close match where the first half belonged to both teams Sidmouth attacked well behind Culm s defence missing Daniel Conn but covered well by Aaron yells but Culm s build up play was more purposful and the Sidmouth glovesman had slightly more to do Some good goals from Cory clench and James brown ended the first half Sidmouth scored early in the second half and it spurned Culm onto a quick reply from a great 25 yard strike from Harry Jee Soon after Cory Clench who was having a good game had to be replaced after a head collision It had to be said for the young man that though he couldn t play he refused to leave the match for a hospital visit to stay and watch his team play William Manning played his first game and showed some promising signs working hard on the left for the ball and playing well between the midfielders and it wasn t long before he had a strong shot well saved this followed a succession of shots from a number of Culm s players all being denied from the Sidmouth keeper or the posts Sidmouth then applied a good 10 minutes of pressure on the Culms defensive line and though they dealt with well it was at times very nervy for Culm s supporters to watch The game ended 4 2 to Culm putting them top of the EYL given that a the other 3 teams at the top didn t play today Sidmouth Raiders 3 0 Hemyock The morning started with heavy rain and both teams surprised that the game was going ahead but it was well worth standing in the downpour to watch the good football that was produced The first goal of the game was scored by Dan Swain who tapped the ball in after a fumble in the goal mouth The ball was under the control of the Raiders for the majority of the first half with Josh Worthington scoring from at least 20 yards out by lobbing the keeper The second half started with the score at 2 0 with Hemyock battling well Josh Edwards and Lewis Masters were unlucky to get their names on the score sheet but Swain made it 3 0 by coming through from midfield and placing the ball past the goalkeeper It was again hard this week for the parents to pick their Man of the Match but the honour was shared by Brett Lines and Matt Saunders both who had an excellent game although credit has all the boys who are really starting to come together to make a great team Feniton 8 0 Sidmouth Raiders Feniton started the game well and were constantly attacking for the first period of the game only a number of fine saves by Toby Lee in the Sidmouth goal keeping the score at 0 0 After 15 minutes a strong run by Tom Harrison into the box was ended by a push in the back and a penalty resulted George Southall Brown sent the keeper the wrong way to open the scoring Three minutes later a mazy run from Harrison cutting in from the left ended with a perfect layback for Sam Titmuss to make it 2 0 Shortly afterwards Josh Tree hit a crisp shot from the inside left channel which clipped a Sidmouth defender to leave the keeper stranded and the score at 3 0 Sidmouth started to come more into the game at this point and Ellis Gage made a strong run through the middle only for Scott Kelly in the Feniton goal to force him wide and make the angle tight enough for Gage s shot to roll agonisingly wide Feniton kept pressing though and with Joe Titmuss rifling the ball into the roof of the net and Sam Titmuss sneaking back from an offside position to tuck the ball away and make it 5 0 at half time The second half was a lot more even with Sidmouth coming more into the game although only seriously troubling Kelly with one well hit free kick from the edge of the box which was well saved Feniton made it 6 0 after 10 minutes of the second half through Joe
