Otterton 4, Tedburn St Mary 0

The Otters took their unbeaten run to seven matches with another slick all-round performance.

The visitors began brightly and Otterton keeper Adam Williams was forced to produce an excellent save to deny the Mid Devon side the lead.

The deadlock was broken on 15 minutes when good approach play from Ben Yeomans found Lee Mitchell who rifled a left-foot shot that the keeper could only parry into the path of Mark Dobjevic who made no mistake from six-yards.

A second arrived shortly after when Gary Williams curled a right-footed shot into the far corner of the net.

Charlie Copleston went close to making it three, but his effort was saved low to his right by an outrushing keeper.

The second half saw little change in the flow of the game and the third goal was scored in the 55th minute when Ben Yeomans found himself in space 18-yards out and slammed a superb effort into the bottom left of the goal.

Next a pin-point ball from Si Trimm found the head of Lee Mitchell who cushioned a header to Ryan Mitchell and he thumped it home fro six-yards to complete the scoring.

Otterton team: A Williams, N Tweedie, I Tweedie, Trim, Chapman, G Williams, L Mitchell, Copleston, Yeomans, R Mitchell, Dobjevic. Subs; Marish, McLean, Rolls.

This Saturday the Otters travel to Honiton Reserves (3pm).

Otterton would like to thank the Kings Arms pub for sponsoring the new home team kit.
