Happy Hext nets three for Warriors
Sidmouth Warriors Under-8s had mixed fortunes in their two games at Honiton, writes Andrew O’Connor.
A goal in the first half from Lucas O’Connor saw Warriors into the lead.
The home side came back strongly, but found Warriors gloves man Haiden Clapp in superb form.
He was eventually beaten twice, the second coming in the closing stages.
Warriors then took on Honiton Hippos who they beat 6-3.
