|DEVON COUNTY U15íS CUP 3RD ROUND
UPLYME YOUTH 6 EXMOUTH TOWN 5
Uplyme come back to secure place in Cup Quarter-Finals
Uplyme kicked off playing up the slope, but having not played a competitive game for over a month, their lack of match practice soon became evident, as they found themselves 2-0 down after eight minutes.
Having regrouped after these early setbacks, Uplyme came more into the game and on sixteen minutes Sam Jones brought a great save from the Exmouth keeper. Anthony Simes then fired narrowly wide in the twentieth minute. Uplyme reduced the arrears on the half hour when Sam Jones put Kyle Knight through and he slipped the ball past the keeper and in off the post.
Exmouth restored their two goal advantage just before the break to make it 3-1.
Two minutes into the second half and Exmouth scored again to make it 4-1. Uplyme were now playing down the slope and despite the deficit were playing good passing football. Their efforts were rewarded in the fifty fifth minute when Brett James was found in space in the box and hit a rising shot into the roof of the net to make it 4-2.
