Budleigh Salterton ladies’ eased their way into the second round of the Westward Developments Devon League Cup, writes Olly White.

They fell behind to an early Barum goal, but this Budleigh team have come from behind many times this season and were soon level when a pin point Abby Yukon corner was headed home by Molly Jacobs.

Barum went in search of a second, but got little change out of Robinettes defensive line of skipper Chelcey Greasley, Kallie Horner, Kelly Browring and Beth Acca.

Two goals in the space of a minute put Budleigh in charge.

Abby Yukon’s powerful strike from the edge of the box gave the keeper no chance and then Céline White used her pace to create a one-on-one that saw her pass the ball beyond the keeper into the net. It soon become 4-1 when Yukon bagged her second with a free-kick.

The second half was a tighter affair, but Budleigh still managed a fifth after Haylee Pannell’s deflected shot nestled in the net courtesy of Olivia Young. Barum scored an excellent second, but thereafter Budleigh keeper Kath Binmore ensured no further goals were leaked with a string of well-timed interventions.

Katie Horne was named the Budleigh Player of the Match.

On Sunday Budleigh face higher league opposition in the County Supplementary Cup as they entertain Ilfracombe at Greenaway Lane.

Squad: Kath Binmore, Kelly Browring, Kallie Horner, Chelcey Greasley, Beth Acca, Kat Parsley, Abby Yukon, Haylee Pannell, Molly Jacobs, Lucy Birch, Céline White. Subs: Hannah Newton, Rebecca Barnsley, Olivia Young, Kayleigh Williams.
