East Budleigh booked their place in the second round of the Devon Senior Cup with a fine 3-2 victory at neighbours Woodbury, writes Mark Auton.

A double from Ben Wilks and a solitary strike from George Harris saw a Budleigh side progress despite missing some first team regulars.

Both sides passed the ball well in the first half and chances came and went at both ends before Budleigh grabbed the initiative.

Leigh Rice set up Wilks who slotted the ball neatly past the Woods stopper to give Budleigh a half-time advantage.

Ten minutes into the second period the home side were back on level terms, but Budleigh restored their lead on the hour; Harris picked up a clearance from the home defence and sent his long range effort into the net.

The third for Budleigh came courtesy of a long throw from Nathan Penhallurick which was flicked into the path of Wilks, who put daylight between the teams.

In the closing stages the hosts pulled a goal back, but Budleigh held on well for the win.

Jacob Rice and Joe Day both produced good displays for a Budleigh side that host Halwill this Saturday (September 23) in a Macron League Division Two game.
