Brixington United 6, Pinhoe Spartans 1
Brixington United Under-15s continued their recent good form and also managed to defeat the Exeter-based side after many season’s of trying, writes David White.
In the early games of this season United have created plenty of chances, but hitting then target has not been do forthcoming. With a net full the week before and another six in this game it seems the goals are now starting to flow!
United began brightly and were helped by the visitors decision to play with just one striker. This gave the United back three a relatively comfortable job and freed up a player to help out in the middle third, thereby creating more chances!
A Max Howard brace and one from Jack Wall gave United a three goal half-time advantage.
The visitors struck straight from the restart and this proved a setback to United as they stuttered for 20 minutes before Howard steadied things with his hat-trick goal.
The fifth goal arrived when a defensive clearance was powered back past the Spartans keeper by Ollie Morey and the sixth was arguably the best as substitute Ed White set up Cameron Brown to complete the scoring.
