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.
