Ottery St Mary Reserves completed a seasons double over Sandford with a 2-0 Washbrook Meadow success.
In an all-round confident display the Otters’ goal was rarely threatened by the visiting side.
Midfielder Rob Smith kept up his good form by opening the scoring mid-way through the first-half.
The teenager skilfully beating a man on the edge of the box before thumping a ferocious drive into the corner of the net.
Veteran striker Barry Wood settled the tie by netting with a few minutes remaining – finishing after a through ball from his own box by Ottery keeper Bradley Turner.

Rampaging midfielder Hugh Cort’s tireless display earned him the Man of the Match accolade and only an upright denied him a goal. Young centre back Luke Phillips helped the home side keep a clean sheet, sliding in with a fine last-ditch tackle in the dying moments of the game.
