Yukon stars as Budleigh Ladies win well at Bideford

Budleigh Ladies travelled to Bideford Ladies with just ten players.

However, rarely throughout the contest did their lack of numbers show such was the industry of the ten on parade as they secured a 3-0 win.

They were ahead in the opening exchanges when left wing Kelly Browring struck after a fine cross from striker Keeley Coates.

Coates then doubled the lead after good approach play from Dominae Weeks. Player of the match, Abby Yukon, who worked tirelessly in the centre of midfield was then unfortunate not to score from a well taken free kick.

Budleigh continued taking the game to their now frustrated opponents, whose only chance came from an overhead kick that drew a splendid save from Kath Binmore.
