Uplyme Youth 1 Honiton 2
Uplyme Youth lose the battle.
In the sunshine with a bitter wind behind them Uplyme kicked off downhill but Honiton quickly took the ball back up and after only 45 seconds a shot powered under the Uplyme keeper into the net. After the restart Uplyme came back with striker Kyle Knight getting a couple of shots in but not troubling their keeper. At the other end Honiton tested the Uplyme defence for several minutes and keeper Brett James did well to prevent more score until on the quarter hour the ball got passed him into the net. The rest of the first half saw more even 50/50 play with both sides getting some shots on goal but with no more score leaving the half time score 0 – 2 to Honiton.
The second half began with Honiton keeping up pressure on the Uplyme goal. However the game quickly settled back to a more even affair with Uplyme’s midfield feeding the ball well up-field until, with Anthony Simes close to scoring, a Honiton defender put the ball into his own net. The remainder of the second half was fast and furious with attacks meeting solid defence and keeping at both ends. Even the many corner kicks and the few free kicks met strong defences - this kept the final score at 1 – 2.
Uplyme’s Man of the Match was judged be Matt Pile. Uplyme’s next match is home to Exmouth Amateurs at 2.00pm on Sunday 5th April.
