Newquay 0, Tiverton Town 5
Exmouth Town gave a thoroughly professional performance in gaining an impressive 5-0 victory at Newquay, writes John Dibsdall.
Whilst the opening exchanges were closely contested you always felt Town posed the greater threat going forward with the pace and trickery of Lloyd Gardner and Ace High.
Having initially frustrated Town by their use of the offside trap this proved to be Newquay’s undoing as Dan Boere pounced twice on twenty-nine and forty minutes to give Town a comfortable half-time lead.
An astute pass from Gardner set up the first but it was the second goal that was eye-catching.
A sixty-yard drop kick from ‘keeper Grant Fisher was instantly controlled by Boere and as the home defence appealed in vain for offside he calmly slotted the ball home.
Town thought they had added the third on fifty minutes, but the effort was cancelled out by the assistant’s flag, but they were not to be denied and Boere completed his hat-trick on sixty minutes following great work from High who skinned the defender and produced a pin point cross.
Not to be outshone Gardner then produced a forty yard run that ended with the ball nestling in the far corner of the net and a minute later another Boere effort was blocked only for High to tuck the rebound away for a goal his overall performance richly deserved.
When Newquay did attack they found Town’s central defensive partnership of Edward Weeks and Kai Fisher (recently signed from Bovey Tracey) in uncompromising mood and ably supported by full backs Adam Fowler and Alex Greening meant that ‘keeper Fisher was not called upon to make any save of note.
This win took Town back to the top of table a position they were looking to consolidate last Tuesday evening when they made the trip to Witheridge (find out how Town did against Witheridge at www.exmouthjournal.co.uk)
