The Sidmouth Town Reserves had their season-long unbeaten record ended when they lost 3-2 at home to an experienced Exmouth Town Reserves side.
Taking the game to the visitors Town were on top when Ferenc Bodor clipped in a cross and youngster Scott Hughes headed home.
Exmouth replied with a good passing game on a difficult surface and managed to pressure the Vikings into mistakes.
A number of needless free-kicks were heaping more pressure on the defence and eventually an equaliser was the outcome.
Two minutes before half-time Exmouth took the lead when another set piece wasn’t defended properly.

Town Reserves’ joint boss Paddy Thomas said: “The players have been excellent and they will bounce back.
“Naivety is a problem, but so many are young lads and experience comes with age. The club are giving youth a chance and the future is looking promising.”
