Woodbury Reserves 1, Otterton 6
Otterton powered their way into the area last four of the Devon Intermediate Cup with another powerful all-round show.
The Otters were quickly into their stride with some slick passing resulting in former Woodbury player Kev Pitt firing them into a second minute lead.
That set the tone for a period of near total dominance for the Otters, but they found a home goalkeeper in great form. It took until the 24th minute for the Woods resistance to be broken again with skipper Lee Mitchell the scorer.
Just before the break Ben Yeomans jinked his way past two defenders to send the Otters into the break 3-0 up.
Despite being the better side in the early exchanges of the second half, Woodbury fell further behind when Pitt scored his second. The solid back line of Nick Tweedie, Lee Mitchell, Dink Thomas and Luke Iddon made sure that there was no way back for the home side. Ryan Mitchell made it 5-0 when he met a Charlie Coplestone cross with a superb volley.
Pitt rounded off the scoring to seal a treble against his former club.
All three substitutes, Adam Rolls, Si Trim and Danny Marish were introduced. The Otters could afford the luxury of a late penalty miss before the home side had the final say with a consolation strike.
On Saturday Otterton host the team sitting immediately below them at the top of Fresha Six, Honiton Town Reserves.
