Writes Mark Auton
East Budleigh Reserves unluckily fell to defeat in this nine goal thriller last Saturday at St Martins, after the award of a late penalty to the home side overruling an offside flag.
Corbin Couch struck a hat-trick and Dan Atkinson also got his name on the scoresheet for a Budleigh side that led 2-1 at the interval, with Maddison Shaw and Callum Wade battling hard in the midfield and Isaac Kemp doing well from a wide position.
The second half saw Budleigh kick up the slope and the scoring went tit-for-tat until at 4-4 with a couple of minutes to play, St Martins were gifted the winning goal.
Couch took the plaudits for Budleigh closely followed by Kemp. This Saturday Budleigh return to action at Vicarage Road where they host Chagford.
