Sidmouth Warriors Under-9s shared the spoils with Exeter side Central Devils when the teams drew 1-1 in an Exeter and District Youth League game.

A superb run and shot from Ethan Isaac flew marginally wide of the target before Lucas O’Connor soon set up Alistair Mounoury to drill the ball home and open the scoring.

Oscar Finch, who made a number of strong runs from midfield, was denied by a splendid save from the Devils glovesman.

The Exeter side hit back, but got little change out of some terrific defending by Lawrence who won every ball that came his way.

However, the Devils pressure continued and they eventually scored a deserved equaliser.

In an end-to-end contest, Warriors created chances, but could not find a second, but then neither could Devils find a way past the excellent Jamie White in the Warriors’ goals.

Lawrence took the Warriors Man of the Match award for his splendid defending.
