Woodbury extended their unbeaten run to seven games when they shared six goals with hosts Culm United.

The Woods made a horrible start with the Mid Devon side fashioning two chances in the opening three minutes, the second from which they scored.

On 15 minutes their plight became much worse as Culm doubled their advantage when Woods keeper Scott Clayton was hindered by the elements when trying to gather the ball.

Just before the break, Ryan Smith, making his debut, was bundled over the home keeper.

Rhys Perry saw his shot saved but Alex Hughes reacted sharply and knocked the rebound home.

Injuries then hampered the Woods efforts as first Johnny Killick limped out and then, at the break, Will Bennett succumbed to injury with Adam Downey taking over.

On the hour Mark Woodbury drew level in fortuitous circumstances. The Culm keeper’s clearance hit the head of one of his defenders and cannoned back into the goal!

Steve Hunt was then introduced as Woodbury sought a winning goal but it was the home side who struck next, regaining the lead with twenty minutes to go.

Four minutes later parity was restored when Adam Downey’s industry was rewarded with Hughes netting to make it 3-3.

The Woods, unbeaten now for two months, face the ultimate test this weekend with a visit to powerful Exmouth Town Reserves.
