Jack Hocking struck twice for Budleigh, with further goals from Pete Griffin and Kai Guise completing a comfortable four goal midweek victory.

The teams then met again last Saturday at Vicarage Road and after a tougher assignment the introduction of Liam West turned the game in Budleigh’s favour, scoring the third and assisting the fourth.

Budleigh had got off to the perfect start controlling the game early on; George Harris hit the post and when Jack Howarth set up Guise his shot was deflected wide.

The first goal and Budleigh’s 100th of the league season was converted by Howarth, who picked up a through ball from Gareth Morrey.

Four minutes later it was 2-0; Harris won Budleigh a penalty from which Joe Walker confidently dispatched the kick.

With all their possession Budleigh looked the more likely to score again, but it was Budleigh keeper Drew Shorrock who produced a smart save to prevent the visitors pulling one back before the break.

Honiton began the second period in determined fashion and were back in the game six minutes in after sloppiness in the Budleigh defence.

They continued to press and it was Shorrock that produced some fine keeping, but an own goal levelled the scores twenty minutes from time.

Keiran Tullett and West came off the bench and it was the latter who put Budleigh back in front five minutes later, his rasping drive giving the away stopper no chance.

Three minutes from time West turned supplier as Harris scored Budleigh’s fourth and clinching goal.

Budleigh are next in action tomorrow night (Friday) at Ottery in the semi-final of the Golesworthy Cup against Upottery (7pm).

They then finish their league campaign at Cheriton Fitzpaine on Wednesday evening.

The first team play their final game of the league season when they entertain Newtown at Vicarage Road on Saturday (3pm).
