Archant

Exe thirds are still looking for their first win of the campaign after going down 4-3 in their meeting with Bude, writes Jojo Bannister.

After a slow start, Exe found an exciting intensity.

Finding themselves 2-0 down due to some speedy attacking play by Bude, Exe did what they do best: reset, pressed hard, kept possession and won a short corner.

Great passing across the D led to Kerry Thorne’s first goal, tapping the ball past the floundering keeper.

As half-time approached, Exe found their feet and settled as a team. With encouraging words to play ahead of the ball, Exe caught the opposition off guard and camped in Bude’s half.

A disappointing goal for Bude spurred Exe on further and Kerry Thorne got Exe’s second goal with a superb deflection from Emma Hulme’s cross.

Bude reacted well and restored their two-goal advantage at 4-2, but Exe, and the impressive Kerry Thorne, had the final say in the contest.

It was Thorne who deflected an Evie Jones shot into the net to complete her hat-trick and round off the scoring.
