Ottery St Mary 1, Brixington United 5

The Brixington United defensive unit was once again at its best to deny the Otters whilst, at the other end of the pitch, the United strikers netted another nap hand of goals, writes Dave White.

As in previous games, the first half was pretty even with both sides sizing each other up.

United took a well-deserved lead courtesy of a Max Howard goal before a hotly-disputed penalty for the home side levelled things up.

The decision clearly angered the players who spent half-time mulling over, but once the whistle blew for the second half there was a real purpose about the United play! Shortly after the restart Cameron Brown fired United back into the lead.

That was the start of a period of total dominance for a confident United side that added further goals Jack Wall, Cameron Brown and a neat headed finish from Max Howard.

It would be unfair to pick an individual Man of the Match for there were many outstanding performances. Sam Carmody was imperious and faultless in defence, Tom Green, who is never flustered, had a great game at left back. Elliot Horne and Ollie Morey who were putting in crunching tackles from first whistle to last.

Cameron Brown was central to almost everything that United did whilst keeper Alex Taylor made some superb saves when called into action.

This was undoubtedly the team’s best collective performance of the season and keeps them top of the table.

However, the side played more games than anyone else in the league and the hope is that the team does not end up regretting the three early season defeats and the draw with Brixington Blues, all games they should, arguably have won!
