Sidmouth Warriors Under-13s were involved in a goal fest when they hosted West Exe Youth in an Exeter and District Youth League meeting, a contest that served up no fewer than 19 goals.

Warriors were given a flying start when Jed Ionov-Flint, who’s having an outstanding season, stroked home a sweetly-struck volley.

The two teams traded goals throughout a thoroughly entertaining first half and, when the whistle blew for the teams to take a break both had scored five times!

The other first half scorers for Warriors were Tim Goody, Benedict Teague and a clinical Connor Brown brace.

Calmness was restored at the half time team talk and when the game resumed Sidmouth took to the pitch with a menacing look.

What followed was the finest attacking display of football seen by coaches Justin Ashby and Sean Brown for a very long time.

The Warriors piled on the pressure with midfield wizard Andres Blanco and fleet-footed winger Benedcit Teague terrorising the West Exe defence.

A further eight goals were added, many of which were breathtaking moves through the thirds of the pitch.

Benedict Teague and ace striker Tim Goody completed their hat-tricks whilst Joe Ashby ran in a second half treble of his own.
