TUFC U16s v Wells U16s
The opening game of the JPL season with the backdrop of Dartmoor was played out on the new 4G surface at South Devon College. Torquay Utd U16s notching a great 6-2 victory against a very game Wells City side.
Wells took the lead with a goal from a long ball over the top. Dan Chapman equalled the scores only minutes later with a tidy finish.
The second quarter saw Torquay Utd pull ahead with a header from De Selincort and a strike from Theo Cadby to make it 3-1 at the half-time mark. Torquay began to turn the screw early in the third quarter and some confident defensive work from Langley saw the home side playing through the lines culminating in a superb strike from the lively Burt. The Wells boys weren’t beaten yet and their No.10 thumped a great strike into the roof of the Torquay net to spur a mini-revival but it was all in vain as Burt struck again to surely put the tie beyond Wells reach with a crisp bottom corner finish. Cadby rolled in his second and Torquay’s 6th to bring the scoring to an end.
An entertaining game, played in a great spirit by two teams who will surely figure at the top end of the JPL table this year... We wish the Wells team and supporters a safe journey home and all the best for the new season.
