Matchday three results from the East Dveon Virtual Football League
Sidmouth Town shipped three first half goals in their Manstone Lane meeting with Axminster Town in the East Devon Virtual Football League Premier Division.
However, the Vikings powered back after the break scoring twice and then missing a penalty before the Tigers bagged a fourth to seal the points. It leaves Sidmouth Town sitting fifth in the eight-team Premier Division. Ottery St Mary became the latest side to suffer defeat at table-topping Exmouth Town. The Otters trailed 1-0 early on, but levelled only to concede a second just before the break and the Southern Road men scored one more on the hour mark to consign the Otters to defeat. Beer Albion are still looking for their first win of the new season after they were edged out by Budleigh Salterton who bagged their first win of the term with a 3-2 success at Furzebrake. The other top flight game on matchday three saw Feniton win 2-0 on their visit to Honiton Town.
