HOLLY TREE claimed a vital 3-2 win over Exmouth Beach Boys in their local derby on Sunday morning, writes Steve Noon.New signing William Pratt got the ball rolling, marking his debut with the only goal of the first half. After the break another debutant, Steven Oliver, headed home and it was soon 3-0 as Jon Chalkley netted with a sublime lob that sailed over Matt Evans in the visitors' goal.Two goals in three minutes suddenly put a different perspective on the game and set up a frenetic finish.It's been a difficult season so far for the Tree but hopefully this confidence boosting performance and result will help them continue to branch their way from the root of the table!
