EXMOUTH Amateurs under-9s travelled to Cullompton minus 2 of their key players who they sorely missed, but it did not stop the side making progress in the Knock-Out Cup.Ammies were not their usual composed selves and the home side took their chance and scored a fantastic goal which gave Ammies' goalie Ed Hurley no chance. This proved to be the only score of the first half.The half time team talk seemed to do the job as the Ammies were a different side after the re-start and were soon level when a superb long throw from Sam Haynes dropped to Milo Shore, who found the back of the net. Ammies pushed on and were soon rewarded when a shot saved by the Cullompton keeper came back out to Michael Hunter who drove the ball home to give his side the lead but the home side came back strongly and were soon level at 2-2.The match looked to be heading for extra time when Ed Hurley launched a long down-field punt that Ieuan Kidd first controlled and then fired home from the narrowest of angles to seal a thrilling 3-2 win.The Ammies' man of the match award was shared by Ed Hurley and Max Reader.
