A fantastic team effort saw Exmouth United Under-13s claim their first Exeter and District League victory of the season against Moors Hawks, beating the Tiverton side 3-2.
United started strongly and quickly found a good passing rhythm. The enterprising play was rewarded when, following a build-up of pressure, the visitors conceded an own goal to see United into a 1-0 lead.
The Moors response was swift and clinical and parity was quickly restored, after which the remainder of the first half saw chances created at both ends of the pitch, but no further goals were forthcoming and half-time arrived with honours still even.
After the break the end-to-end play continued, but it was United who scored the game’s third and fourth goals.
Winger Jay Leballeur, assisted by Cayleb Field, grabbed the first and Tommy Foa jinked his way through the Moors defence to make it 3-1.
After that, Moors threw everything at United and managed to pull one back to set up a tense final 10 minutes.
However, the home team showed great maturity and battled valiantly to keep Moors at bay and to seal the win.
Every Exmouth United player gave their all to a superb team performance.
United team: Harry Kifli-Reynolds, Tom Price, Bryn Stephens, Daniel Alford, Harry Bassett, Ben Fisher, Lewis Evans, Dylan Mogford, Tommy Foa, Jay Leballeur, Cayleb Field, Patryk Plachecki.
