Woodbury 6, Axminster Town Reserves 2
Four goals inside the first 30 minutes helped Woodbury make it ten wins from eleven games at the Archery Club.
In the fifth minute Dan Fulls and Dann Tapp linked well prior to the latter making it 1-0.
Two minutes later Fulls got up after being felled in the area and slammed the spot kick home.
It was 3-0 with Rhys Perry slotting home from a corner and in the 28th minute a clinical finish from Tapp made it 4-0.
A strange decision to award handball against Terry Skeggs gifted the visitors the chance to get one back from the penalty spot.
The decision clearly unsettled the Woods and they concede a second within five minutes and went into the interval with a two goal lead.
There was more intensity about the Woods approach in the second half.
Tapp sealed a second hat-trick of the season to make it 5-2 and Fulls seized on defensive woes in the Axminster back line to make it 6-2.
Richie Ralph and Andy Bennett came off the bench for the last 10 minutes with Declan Bourne and Wayne Rowsell making way.
Woods boss Adam Reid said post match: “That first half hour was very good. I like the look of our new-look strike force of ‘double d’s’ with Dan Tapp and Dan Fulls proving a handful for the opposition defenders. I am keen to install greater belief within the team as I firmly believe that Woodbury are the best outfit in the division.”
Dan Tapp was named Man of the Match whilst there was also a pleasing sight for Woods followers of Brett Gloyn back in a Woodbury shirt.
