Heavitree v Hatherleigh Town
0 Heavitree Social Club 2 Vs 1 Hatherleigh Town 1
Hatherleigh travelled to top-of-the-league Heavitree 24 hours after an entertaining match against Seaton. Everyone predicted a home banker. Hatherleigh made two changes - Cooper coming in for Endacott and James for Reynolds. Subs were Bedford and Rice.
Hatherleigh took the game to the leaders and two good efforts by Millington and Davies showed that Hatherleigh were up for it. On twenty two minutes an excellent through ball from Wonnacott found Cooper who slotted home to give Hatherleigh a 1-0 lead and frustrate the home fans.
Town could have gone two or even three nil up with efforts from Cooper and Dymond. The Town defence were outstanding and kept the league leaders at bay. An excellent save by Toop just before half time kept Town with a 1-0 lead.
The second half was a different story with Heavitree needing three points to clinch the championship. Another great save from Toop on 48 minutes kept Town in the game. But pressure from the home team finally paid off on 65 minutes to draw level.
The first booking was recorded on 78 minutes with a home player going into the ref's book. On 80 minutes the killer blow hit a leg-weary Hatherleigh defence. Town forced a corner in the dying minutes but this was knocked to safety by the home team.
Final score: Heavitree Social Club 2 Vs 1 Hatherleigh Town
Team: Toop, Wonnacott, Moore, Cooper, Wollacott, Gillespie, Bruce, Davies, James, Millington, Dymond Subs: Rice, Bedford on for Cooper
