Otterton in seventh heaven

Exwick Villa 0, Otterton 7

Otterton made short work of maintaining their season-long unbeaten record with a powerful show in Exeter.

It took just two minutes for the Otters to set their stall out with Kev Pitt firing them ahead after a goal mouth scramble.

Before Exwick had time to compose themselves superb inter-play involving Adam Rolls and Liam Tweedie ended with Rolls rifling the Otters into a two goal lead.

Rolls was then central to another raid that left him one-on-one with the home keeper – a contest Rolls won to make it 3-0, all within the first ten minutes!

Otters top scorer Kev Pitt made it four ion the half hour before Man of the Match Rolls raced sown the right wing before drilling the bal, into the area where an unfortunate defender turned the ball past his own keeper to put Otters five up.

The first half scoring was completed when Si Tuley netted.

A fine save from stand-in keeper Luke Iddon denied the hosts a goal early in the second half.

The seventh and final goal came on the hour when the ball was played through the midfield prior to Ben Yeomans and Pitt getting involved. The latter unselfishly squared to Ryan Mitchell who stroked the ball home.

However his mistake did come 10 minutes later when, following a booking for a late tackle, he then handled the ball in the Exwick box and picked up a second yellow to get an early shower.

The Otterton lead in Fresha Division Six is now three points and next up is Saturdays home game with Ottery St Mary (3pm).

Otterton team: Iddon, Trim, Thomas, L Tweedie, N Tweedie, Yeomans, Rolls, L Mitchell, Tulley, R Mitchell, Pitt. Subs; Marish, Mclean, Copleston, Williams, Chapman.
