Exe IV 1, Isca V 2
This was a very watchable, fast paced encounter.
The game started at a high tempo and both teams defences did well to stop the other side opening the scoring.
The end-to-end play was unrelenting and, on one particular raid, Sarah Bennett was unlucky not to get a clean goal but strong pressure in the D resulted in a deflected own goal!
Exe held that lead until just before the break when Isca’s relentless pressure finally paid dividends.
In the second half Isca came back strongly and Exe did very well to limit them to the one goal.
The Exe defenders collectively played a superb match and there were also a number of spectacular saves by Sally Turner and solid teamwork across the pitch.
Ultimately it was an unfortunate loss, but an excellent effort.
