BRIXINGTON Blues under-12s put on an inspired team performance to take the points in an eventful encounter with Newton St Cyres, writes James Rendall.

First half goals from Arnold Godbeer and Joel Rendall took Blues in two up at the break after some terrific play from Jordan Vine, David Cockayne, Mike White and especially Harry Trick, who created havoc in the St Cyres defensive ranks with his wing play and crosses.

After the break Blues increased the tempo and scored three more times as Ollie Hughes-Hollomby fired home from close range, Vine set up Rendall to score his second of the contest from the edge of the box before the final score, the goal of the game.

Alex Szypillo took control of the ball some thirty yards from goal and sent a screamer hurtling into the net. Godbeer, Vine and Cockayne all went close to adding further goals and Rendall ended a brilliant run by putting a shot just wide.

There was also a double dose of success for the two Brixington under-11 sides.

United produced another great display of passing football to book a slot in round 2 of the Exeter & District Youth League U11s Cup with a 4-0 win at Heavitree Rockets.

Josh Phillips gave Utd the lead with a blistering shot through a crowd of players and then he played a leading role in the second when he chested down a Rockets clearance to Sam Skinner whose pass released Thomas Sicklemore to run on and double the lead.

Ryan Ellis added a third after good work by Owen Corrick. Robert Crole and Keenan Paver then combined to set up Jake Sharp at the far post to score Utd's fourth. Lewis Miller's superb goal- line clearance and great defensive work by Luke Bland, Josh Maunder and George Mears ensured United kept another clean sheet.

Blues served up a repeat of their recent 6-0 win over Beacon Knights in a league game, by doing the same to book a berth in the next round of the cup.

Blues went ahead after an interchange between Glen Davison and Josh Mingo as they worked their way through the Knights' defence before Mingo tucked the ball home and then, just before the break, they added a quick fire double.

Harry Moxey burst through the defence before inviting Jack Hodge to guide a daisycutter past the keeper's despairing dive. Then, a big scramble in the box ended with Cameron Deighton knocking home the third.

The excellent George Catcher set up the opening score of the second half. Mingo and Doble were both involved before Davison applied the finish.

The final scores came from Jordan Howlett, who was assisted by more Deighton magic and then the same player provided the 'assist' for Sam Smith to complete the scoring.
