Budleigh Salterton struck a superb 2-0 victory and in doing so, became the first team to defeat Teignmouth Town on their own patch this season, writes Alan Beer.
Although there was a lively end to end start to the game is wasn’t until 26 minutes before the first goal scoring chance came. That fell to Teignmouth’s Craig Stonelake who sliced his
shot wide of the right hand post. On the half hour mark The Robins went close to breaking the deadlock when Khalid Badavi just failed to reach a cross from Karl Rickard into the six
Seven minutes later a long clearance fell for Rickard to run onto and slot past Nicky Moyse in the home goal to give The Robins the lead. Then with only seconds remaining to the break a corner by Adam Clark was met by Carl Everest coming in from the
back of the 18 yard box to head home for number two.
Danny Williams missed a chance to increase The Robins lead on the hour mark when he shot wide from Badavi’s cross into the goal mouth. The closest Teignmouth came to
reducing the arrears was a fierce shot from Alex Blackburn, fully 30 yards out, which rebounded off the left hand post. Chris Wright in the Budleigh goal then produced a good
save to deny Robert Perry, giving The Robins a well deserved win and lifting them to second place in the league. Having defeated one team unbeaten in the league, Budleigh now look
forward to the prospect of going top with a home game against Liverton, the only remaining unbeaten side. Saturday 20 November, 3pm kick off at Greenway Lane.
