Lympstone were forced to share the spoils in a draw with visiting Heavitree.
Without a game the previous week the Lympets began sluggishly looking disjointed and they struggled to play with the passion and spirit shown in recent games.
Despite this they took the lead through David Whipp, getting the better of the Heavitree goal keeper, the club’s 64-year-old chairman!
Just before half-time the Heavies levelled from the penalty spot. With plenty of stong words of encouragement sent their way during the break, the Lympets made a bright start to the second half, but for some reason did not keep up the pace and slid back into the lack-lustre mode they had shown in the first half.
One again, despite the apparent lethargy, they got their noses in front thanks to a calm finish from Adam Saunders, but it was not to be the winning strike for the visitors took advantage of a needless free-kick conceded by the Lympets within striking distance and the set piece was duly despatched into the top corner of the home net to leave honours even.
