Budleigh Salterton 5, Liverton 0
With four home league games over the Christmas period The Robins are looking to add to their points tally and lift themselves into the top half of the South West Peninsula League, Eastern Division table, writes Alan Beer.
In a confident start there were just two minute son the clock when Mark Lever went close with his goal bound over head kick being pushed away for a
corner by the Liverton keeper, James Wannell.
Five minutes later Lever was well placed to slot in from 10-yards to open the scoring.
Jack Greenslade was unlucky on 20 minutes when his shot from 20-yards beat the keeper, but bounced back from the left hand post.
Three minutes later George Pannell made a good run down the left wing and his cross to the near post was turned in by Greenslade.
Just before the break Matt Dawson then set up Greenslade with a good through-ball which the Man of the Match slotted in from just inside the area to send the home side into the interval with a 3-0 lead.
Fifteen minutes into the second half Sam Woodin made it four when he picked up a loose ball mid way into the Liverton half and fired in a shot to the top right corner.
Liverton never gave up but the only threatening effort came from sub Ibrahim Camara who shot wide from close range.
With two minutes to go Danny Williams released Carl Everest down the left wing and his cross through the six-yard box was turned in by Pannell via the inside of a post.
Budleigh team: Hockhold, Ellis, Everest, Woodin, Demetre (Wright), Lever (Sale), Shipton, Dawson, Pennell, Greenslade (Williams). Sub not used: Carr On Saturday the Robins entertain Crediton United at Greenway Lane (3pm).
