SIDMOUTH Raiders U12s won 3-1 at a wet and windy Dawlish.
Early opportunities came and went until the10th minute when the first goal was scored by C J Abbott, who smashed in a corner swung in from the left.
Noah Raffell, Toby Whitfield and Eddie Rudolph dealt well with the rare attacks created by Dawlish.
Will Bond doubled the lead with a goal after some excellent build-up play.
Bond received the ball with his back to goal, turned, left two defenders flat-footed and unleashed a shot into the net

The third and final goal was scored by Paul Heeney after a shot cannoned off the crossbar and landed for him to tap home his first goal for the Raiders.
Skipper Noah Raffell had to leave at half time, which meant Kieran Phillips replaced him and played well in his place.

Robbie Hallett, Sam Burhop and Henry Summerhayes worked hard to carve out more chances but the Raiders couldn’t take advantage.
Clearing up any Dawlish attack, were Lewis Rowden and Ben Slater who worked tirelessly as usual.
Dawlish did score a well-deserved goal midway through the second half, which made the game a bit more tense, but rarely threatened after that as the Raiders’ defence was solid.
