Sidmouth Warriors 4, Okehampton 3
This Under-11 Exeter and District League game was an outstanding advert for the age group.
Both sides put plenty into the contest, the outcome of which was tough to call through to the final whistle!
Town enjoyed the better of the first half during which time the visitors dug deep.
With defensive trio of Griffiths, Lascelles and Fowler enjoying a measure of control in front of a very confident Ensall in goal, it allowed the midfield quartet of Hollis, Rush, Wood and Salter, to take command of the central area whilst Mitchell and Pyne operated in tandem up front.
To underline the all-round involvement on the day, both Henderson and Wilson made invaluable contributions from the bench.
The Town goals came from George Salter and Sam Pyne and a brace of stunning free kicks rifled home by Jordan Fowler who was denied a hat-trick when a late shot cannoned back off an upright.
