Brixington United Under-10s were good value for their 1-0 win over Axminster with victory sealed thanks to a Josh Lawrence goal.
In early end-to-end action, Oliver Dawkins shone in midfield, Ryan McCann and Harry Phillips were solid in defence and Evan Clark was assured in goal, making some smart saves.
A terrific Ben Vines cross so nearly brought a goal and then Josh Lawrence went close, but the first half ended with the game still looking for its first goal.
After the break the end-to-end action continued.
Laurence Bainbridge impressed in the United defence while, at the other end of the pitch, a Sonny Rowsell shot flew just wide before two superb saves by young Clark kept the game still goalless!
The deadlock was finally broken when a slick break from United ended with Lawrence chipping the ball over the goalkeeper to seal his side a fine victory.
United team: Evan Clark, Laurence Bainbridge, Ryan McCann, Sonny Rowsell, Oliver Dawkins, Josh Lawrence, Harper Phillips, Ben Vines, Harley Westaway.

With Charlie Cain working hard, defender Frank Shelton making some timely tackles and goalkeeper Taylor Westaway looking confident, Blues were good value for their lead. A O’Mahoney penalty increased the lead, but Axminster got a goal back just before half-time.
After the break, Jake Gibbs-Clark and Liam May came on for Harry Tooby and Rian Powley and Gibbs-Clarke put in an assured shift in defence.
