A full-strength side faced local rivals, Honiton, in what turned out to be an exciting and eventful local derby with plenty of goals. For much of the first half, both teams had lots of opportunities to pull ahead. Ottery Crickets defenders were caught unaware, even though they felt as if they had the situation in hand, only to find the ball in the back of the net from an amazing acute angle strike by a Honiton attacker. After half time, Ottery piled on the pressure which led to Jane Roberts scoring from an immaculate through ball from Norma Rich. Ottery unfortunately gave away another goal, but came back with force and Rich battled through the Honiton defence and eventually found the much-needed goal Ottery were looking for. As the minutes ticked by, there were opportunities at both ends. The breakthrough came for Honiton in the dying couple of minutes.
