Sidmouth and Ottery HC Men’s fifth team secured their fourth point of the season with a resilient performance at home to Taunton Vale.

Playing at Ottery St Mary, the visitors took an early lead and extended it with a second goal within the first 15 minutes.

But the home side did not let their heads drop and started to put together some good passing moves.

As they started to gain a foothold, youngster Callum Lefevre grabbed a goal back with a very composed strike.

The team continued to build up momentum and Andrew Coley levelled the scores when he connected with a strong pass from Steve Ellison.

Lefevre was involved in the equaliser, with a good run down the right, from where he passed to Coley who, with his back to goal, struck the ball on the reverse stick to level the scores once more.

Despite the home side’s best efforts, they could not find a winning goal but could reflect on a good team performance.

The side will be taking on Chard on Saturday, at 2pm, on the pitch in Ottery St Mary.
