The East Devon Virtual Football League - matchday two round-up

Exmouth Town made it two wins out of two in the East Devon Virtual League Premier Division.

Matchday two saw Town score four first half goals on their visit to Feniton. In a game of seven goals; Feniton scored first – and last, but in between Town hit five to make it nine for the Southern Road men in the first two games of the season.

Town’s five at Feniton was surpassed by Axminster Town with the Tigers powering their way to a 6-2 win at Budleigh Salterton.

The Robins led 1-0 at the break, but whatever Josh Stunell said to his team at the break certainly did the trick for the Tigers scored six times in a one-sided second half. The Robins did net a second of their own, but its back-to-back defeats now for the Greenway Lane men. Honiton Town shared four goals on their visit to Ottery St Mary and that result means that the Hippos, like Axminster Town, have four points from their first two games of the season. The other Premier Division game saw Sidmouth Town win 2-1 at Beer Albion.

In Division One, Upottery made it two wins from as many starts as they scored three first half goals and one more after the break on their way to a 4-0 success at Otterton. Tipton are second in Division One after they won 3-0 at Cranbrook but there was a second successive defeat for Lympstone as they went down 2-1 at East Budleigh. The other Division One game ended all square with Exmouth Spartans sharing four goals with visiting Seaton Town.

In Division Three Millwey Rise were the big scorers, netting five in a 5-1 win at Exmouth Rovers and Farway scored four as they defeated Axmouth United 4-2. Indeed, all four of the Division Two games produced results as Colyton beat Awliscombe 3-0 and Offwell Rangers were 2-1 winners at home to Dunkeswell Rovers.
