Budleigh Salterton ladies were in top form as they scored seven unanswered goals to defeat Axminster Town in a Westward Developments Devon Women’s League Division One game, writes SpursTom.

It was a case of déjà vue for the Greenway Lane faithful as they also saw the Robinettes score nine goals just seven days before in a super show against Keyham Kolts.

Once again it was Amy Salter who fired the Robinettes into an early lead, scoring in just the third minute.

Given the amount of possession they had, and indeed the way they controlled the game, it was something of a surprise that the second home goal did not arrive until the 33rd minute when Salter netted her second with Bec Long providing the assist. The 2-0 lead was what the Robinettes took into the interval, but within three minutes of the re-start they were 3-0 to the good with Sara Burke the scorer. Salter was soon again at the forefront of the action, scoring the team’s fourth to complete yet another hat-trick. Battling Axminster were forced to defend in depth as Budleigh won a succession of corners and goals five, six and seven all came from that source. Bec Long, defender Lucy Burch and Jen Cordwell all scored from corners to compete another terrific team display by the Robinettes.

Budleigh’s next two league outings are both away. They go to Plainmoor next Sunday (April 22) where the kick-off is 2pm and then they visit Ottery St Mary on the final Sunday of the month (April 29) where once again kick-off will be 2pm.
