Sidmouth Warriors Under-8s endured mixed fortunes in matches against Dawlish opposition.

First up against hosts Dawlish United, Warriors got off to a great start when Stepan Hovora sent Lucas O’Connor away and he made progress deep into the opposition half before tucking the ball to Ethan Isaac who rifled the ball home!

Warriors then seemed to fall into the trap over feeling over confident and a lapse in concentration in defence gifted the home side two quick-fire goals. It might have got worse for the Warriors, but the quick-thinking of stand-in glovesman Oscar Finch, who made an outstanding save – kept his side in the contest. However, a second goal was not forthcoming and Warriors, with Will Lawrence having a fine game, slipped to a narrow 2-1 defeat.

Next up Warriors took on Dawlish Swans and they were quickly into their stride, seemingly intent on quickly banishing any thoughts of the earlier defeat!

Such was the Warriors dominance of proceedings that goalkeeper Jamie White had just a single save to make throughout the match!
