Sidmouth Warriors Under-8s had mixed fortunes when they made their first appearance since the Christmas holidays.

They took on teams from Tiverton and beat Moors Madrid 6-2 before being beaten 4-1 by Crediton.

Despite a lengthy time without action Warriors made a solid start and a terrific pass from Lucas O’Connor released Lucas Vickery who fired Warriors into the lead after just two minutes.

The Tiverton side responded well and it needed a couple of excellent saves from glovesman Jamie White to deny them an equaliser before Vickery doubled his tally, and the lead, after some fine work from Alistair Mounoury.

Mounoury was the provider for goals number three and four – both tucked away by Vickery.

Sloppy defending allowed Moors to pull a goal back, but the four goal margin was swiftly restored as Vickery scored his fifth of the game to send Warriors into the break with a 5-1 lead.

The scoring died down in the second half, but there was a fine finish from Mounoury, who scored after some great play from Stepan Houvara and Oscar Finch. Moors, who battled well throughout, scored a late second.

Ethan Isaac played well outfield in the first half and then did well between the posts after the break.

If Warriors were impressive in their dismantling of Moors, the same could not be said of their show in their second game against Crediton.

They lost their shape completely and Crediton took full advantage. It was not until late in the game that Lucas Vickery notched what proved to be a consolation for Warriors.

The loss brought to an end a run of six straight wins for Warriors, but the players deserve credit for their collective efforts on what was a very heavy surface.

Six goal Lucas Vickery picked up the Man of Match award for both games.
