Hatherleigh Town v University
Peter Cooper, our new cub reporter (pictured left), sent in this for his debut contribution:
"On a lovely sunny Saturday afternoon the mighty Hatherleigh Town, who are 10th in the Devon and Exeter league, entertained 7th place Exeter University. In the 23rd minute Exeter's number 10 had a good shot but Toop pulled off a good save. In the 30th minute Dymond had a good cross in from the right wing into the centre of the box with Hatherleigh's new signing Dean Rice (right) having a good header, but just wide of the post.
GOAL! Hatherleigh 0-1 Exeter University. It was in the 42nd minute when the first goal was scored. It came from Exeter's 3rd consecutive corner with a Hatherleigh player heading the ball into his own net! Then, in the 45th minute, Exeter had another good attempt from their number 15 but Toop pulled off a spectacular save. Half time - Hatherleigh Town 0-1 Exeter University.
In the 50th minute Exeter's number 9, who was looking dangerous all game, took the ball past the Hatherleigh defence and had a good shot but Toop made yet another good save. Town struck back in the 56th minute when Bedford had a shot but Exeter's keeper tipped it over the crossbar for a corner. In the 63rd minute Exeter had another good shot but Toop made a save which bounced off his legs onto an Exeter player, who had another good shot, but Toop made another good save.
GOAL! Hatherleigh 0-2 Exeter University. The goal came in the 73rd minute when Exeter's number 12 croosed the ball into their number 10 who finished it off nicely in the top left hand corner.
Then in the 75th minute Town had a good corner which missed everyone except for the defender who cleared it off the line. In the 80th minute Number 16 for Exeter had a good shot which beat the goalie but not the post. In the 83rd minute Millington had a good attempt on goal but was saved by Exeter's keeper. In the 86th minute Millington had a spectacular shot at goal from just outside the 6 yard box but sadly hit the crossbar. Full time: Hatherleigh 0-2 Exeter University
All in all it was a good entertaining game with both teams having great chances. Lets hope we get back to winning ways next week, when they are home to Pinhoe.
Hatherleigh's star man: Gary Toop. Hatherleigh's line up: Toop, Wonnacott, Pearson, Bryant, Moore, Endacott, Bedford, Jones, Dymond, Millington, Rice. Subs: James, Bruce.
