Sidmouth Raiders Under-13s powered their way to a convincing 5-0 win over Beacon Knights with Jack Wilson taking the scoring honours, scoring a hat-trick.

The opening goal owed much to the approach play involving Scot Gibson and Archie Rowe prior to Cole Monaghan tucking the ball home.

The Exeter side responded well, but found the Raiders defence, and in particular Louis Stamp, in fine form.

On the odd occasions that the Raiders defence was breached goalkeeper Isaac James once again showed good handling and distribution.

The lead was doubled when the fleet-footed Jamie Wyant chipped the ball forward and Wilson ran on to net the first of his treble.

Wilson bagged his second from a Ben Latham corner and completed his hat-trick when he got on the end of a long ball from Finlay Morgan.

It was young Monaghan who netted the fifth and final goal when he took a pin-point pass from Will Lorkin before firing the ball home.

On Saturday (Janaury 25) Raiders entertain the only unbeaten side in Divison Three, Newton St Cyres.
