YOUTH FOOTBALL - Honiton Town U16s 1, Brixington United 6 Juventus League: United completed the double over Honiton with one of their best performances of the season.

Robert Adey-Titley got United off to a good start by chipping an accurate shot over the keeper's head into the corner of the net.

After 15 minutes United were 2-0 ahead. Some excellent approach play put Luke Smith in position to cross so accurately that Adam Cornish was able to side foot the ball into the net from close in.

United continued to take the game to Honiton but midway through the first half they lost their way.

Gone was the passing seen earlier in the match and instead the ball was being lumped all over the pitch with no one taking control or responsibility. It was no surprise that Honiton ended the half strongly and scored.

A half-time reminder of what was required, and a couple of substitutions, brought an almost immediate response. Within a minute of the restart, substitute Matt Cotton threaded a pass through a crowded goal area and Adey-Titley's low drive made it 3-1. Shortly afterwards, full-back Zack Pearce volleyed in the fourth.

Midway through the half Adey-Titley completed his hat-trick and Matt Harrison finished the scoring minutes from time.

Exeter Friendly League

Goals from Josh Wadham, Peter Wright and Aarron Denny saw Brixington home in a largely one-sided game.

Within seconds of the kick-off, a Denny through ball found Wadham who clipped the inside of the post to open the Blues' tally.

His second soon followed, the Heavitree defence struggling to cope with the sheer pace and quality of the Blues' attack play.

The Blues were soon three up - Wright volleying home at close range after Liam Dickinson's header came back off the bar.

With the game effectively in the bag, the Blues started to cruise. Unsurprisingly they began to get caught on the break, forcing Connor Gilby in goal to make some excellent judgement calls.

With Blues still coasting, Heavitree pulled a goal back before half time.

Gilby was forced to make a couple of superb diving saves to keep Heavitree from getting back into this match. At the other end, a Dickinson one-two with Wadham finished with Wadham netting.

Strong running from Tim Dunn on the right and Tyler Dobinson on the left ended with a through ball from Denny to Wright, who unselfishly pulled the ball back for Wadham to sweep in his fourth. Denny scored late on.
