East Budleigh Reserves were 3-1 winners when they visited Otterton Reserves for a Macron League Division Seven game, writes Mark Auton.
East Budleigh ended as deserved 3-1 winners thanks to second half goals from Kai Guise, Liam Mabin and Julian Green.
Jack Hocking went agonisingly close early on for Budleigh, before Guise struck first when his speculative effort went in off the post from 20 yards in the 20th minute.
Otterton had their share of the play and had their opportunities; Dave Clow cleared one shot off the line, but was unable to prevent Josh Fuller scoring a fine equaliser.
Liam Mabin came off the bench in the second period and found the top corner with an excellent shot from his first touch.
Ten minutes from time Mabin turned provider for Green to make it three and seal the win.eper Drew Shorrock had a steady game between the sticks, Luke Kelsall fought for every ball, but the Man of the Match was the hard working Lewis Fletcher.
