Brixington Blues Under-13s were 6-2 winners when they came up against Sidmouth Warriors in an Exeter and District Youth League meeting.

Warriors were first to threaten, but a fine save from Russ Bracey in the Blues’ goal denied them.

Joel Knott began the move for the opening goal. After taking a pass from Finn Glanfield, he played in Ethan Beverley, who brushed aside a couple of challenges before scoring. A terrific team goal saw Warriors level, before, in a game of end-to-end action, Beverley and Jack Drew-Cull were both denied by splendid saves from the Warriors glovesman and Haggerty saw a free-kick cannon back off an upright.

Early in the second half, Elliott Bowyer’s goal-bound strike was well saved, but only for a corner and, when Haggerty’s corner was delivered into a crowded area, Drew-Cull headed home. It was Drew-Cull who drilled home the third Blues goal with a long-range strike before Haggerty headed fractionally wide after Bowyer and Drew-Cull had combined to set up the chance.

Warriors hit back, but were kept at arm’s length by some good defending from Harrison Fox and Finn Glanfield.

Blues made it 4-1 when Drew-Cull thumped home a penalty to complete his hat-trick and, after a couple of near things, a second penalty was awarded and Ben Geare scored from the spot to make it 5-1.

A superb team move, started by skipper Haggerty and involving Drew-Cull and Beverley, ended with the latter scoring.

Warriors, who contributed much to the game, battled away and they rounded off the scoring with a successful penalty, but Blues were worthy winners.
