East Budleigh Reserves put up a brave fight against a Millwey Rise side from three leagues higher, and even led at the interval in a Devon Intermedioate Cup that ultimately saw the visiting side win 8-3, writes Mark Auton.

Eighteen minutes into the contest Budleigh opened the scoring when Liam Mathew curled a beauty into the top corner to give Budleigh the lead.

The visitors levelled on the half hour, but Budleigh were 2-1 ahead before the break; Gareth Morrey had his shot blocked only for Kev Hocking to find the back of the net with a tidy finish.

Steve Davey and Adam Wheatley were defending stoutly for Budleigh, but two goals in two minutes turned the game on its head seven minutes after the re-start.

Millwey went on to stamp their authority on the game as Budleigh tried to get back in the tie.

Joe Walker added a third consolation for a Budleigh side who should take heart from their first half efforts when they visit Amory Green Rovers in Division Eight this Saturday (September 23).
