Saints Southwest Duel!
Saints Southwest played hosts to themselves today in their league encounter at the 3G at Paignton Academy.
Devon started the game on the front foot, gaining some good territory and possession in Somerset’s half. The first opportunity fell to Finley Brown, after Angus delicious cross from the right hand side, Finley attacked the ball but couldn’t connect with his head from 6 yards out. Angus and Will controller the game well from midfield, and Angus opened the account with a beautifully controlled finish from outside the box just before the end of the quarter.
The second quarter some what drifted by, with very little action or opportunities created in the final third. The Somerset back four were defending narrow and resolutely with little space also between the lines.
Devon came out in the second half playing a 4-4-2. However it was Somerset who drew level as they countered, to then be fouled just inside the box. Will Armstrong despatched the penalty accurately into the bottom corner. Devon then pushed on, regaining the lead after finally converting one of many corners, Aiden first hitting the bar with his header, before turning the rebound in. Devon added a third before the end of the quarter, some fine play from Tom M and Sam C down the left hand side, Sam unselfishly cutting the ball back for Charlie to dispatch at the near post. A fine move..
In the final quarter almost all of Devon’s good attacking play came from the left hand side. Sam grabbed a goal of his own early on, pinching the ball from the right back and firing left footed into the corner. Charlie had further opportunities to score, but his final touch just evaded him on ocassions. He did however convert one of his chances, rounding the keeper, just keeping the ball in and firing into the net. MOM Sam Clifton rounded up the scoring with another mazy run and finish with aplomb.
Good competitive game and best of luck to both teams for the rest of the season.
