Feniton Under-14s were indebted to hot-shot striker Chris Badcott who scored all five of his teams goals as they recovered from five down early in the second half of their Acland Park meeting with Honiton to earn a draw in a thrilling 5-5 draw.

This was certainly one of those ‘game of two halves’ meetings! The first half belonged to Honiton who scored four unanswered goals in the first half and then took a 5-0 lead shortly after half-time. Seemingly out of the contest Feniton, and in particular Chris Badcott, had other ideas! Badcott launched his side’s stunning comeback with a quick-fire brace with the assists, first from Wilf McNeilige and then from Stephen Lilley.

His hat-trick goal was a classic close-range finish and his fourth came from his own corner; the ball sailing into the net. Badcott then netted his fifth with a clinical one-on-one finish to ensure both sides had something to show for their contributions to a superb game of football played in a wonderful spirit.
