Ottery St Mary suffer mixed fortunes over Easter

Ottery St Mary had mixed fortunes over Easter with a terrific Saturday win at promotion-seeking rivals Feniton followed 48 hours later by a humbling at title-chasing Uplowman Athletic.
The Monday defeat is likely the end of any title aspirations the Otters might have had. However, a top three finish, and with it promotion to Division Four, remains very possible.
Saturday’s 3-1 win at Feniton came about from a solid all-round display in which centre back Sean Durkin was the stand-out performer. Durkin also scored one of the goals with the others netted by the Harris brothers, Toby and Adam.
The trip to Monday to face a very useful Uplowman side was hamstrung before the side departed Ottery as a number of key players were missing.
The 5-1 score line is perhaps harsh on the Otters – Tom Williamson betting then consolation goal – against a side that has now won 14 of their 16 games, having scored more and conceded fewer than all the other teams in Division Five.

The Otters have another tough game tomorrow (Saturday) when they host a Kentisbeare side that sit third, one place and one point above the Otters having played a game more.
A positive result against the Kents and the Otters will be on course for a top three finish.
