There were mixed fortunes for the Budleigh Salterton Under-15s across a weekend that saw them win a league game handsomely before, 24 hours later, they slipped out of the Devon County Cup, writes SpursTom.
The Saturday league outing was at Greenway Lane against visiting Wonford Galaxy, who were despatched 7-2.
The young Robins dominated the game from the first whistle and opened the scoring through Lewis Hillier and the lead was swiftly doubled by Joe Graham, who scored after terrific approach play from Ryan Fell, to give the home side a 2-0 lead.
After the break the Robins found five more goals. Ryan Daffin netted twice, as did Man of the Match award winner Matt Shaw-Smith and Will White also netted.
Wonford, who battled throughout, played with a front three throughout and got a couple of second-half goals for their efforts.
The following day they were again at home, but this time in a Devon Cup tie in which they faced fellow Exeter and District league side West Exe Youth who edged a close encounter 2-1.
The Budleigh goal was scored by Matt Shaw-Smith while the Robins’ individual honours went to Benji Horn.
