Woodbury 3, Bradninch 0
Woodbury thirds were good value for their victory over the Mid Devon side with Dan Tap the star of the show with a hat-trick.
A youthful Bradninch started well, but once the more experienced Woods got a foothold in the game there was only going to be one outcome!
Wayne Rowsell was the chief architect of everything positive about the Woods play.
The opening goal arrived when the lovely Matty Tidmarsh had a shot parried into the path of Tapp who slammed the loose ball home.
Just before the break the Mid Devon side were denied an equaliser by a splendid save from Woods keeper Nick Leaper.
After the break it was the 55th minute introduction of Nathan Stewart that proved decisive. Tapp doubled the lead shortly after the Stewart appearance and the same player completed his treble after good work down the flank from Brandon Hodge.
That was the last of the goals for the afternoon as Woodbury closed out the game.
Three players shared the Man of the Match award; Harry Douglas, Nathan Hodge and Jordan Bennington.
Woodbury Thirds: Team: Nick Leaper, Harry Douglas, Jordan Bennington, Nathan Hodge, Wayne Rowsell, Dan Tapp, Jake Chudley, Will Bennett, Rhys Perry (Nathan Stewart), Brandon Hodge (Jack Nelson), Matty Tidmarsh
