Colyton 0 - 2 Sidmouth Town 2nds
Referee, Timothy Platt, got the match started and for the first few minutes it was a case of both teams probing the opposition defence, trying to find a way through but both defences stayed tight and solid.
First real chance feel to Colyton, when striker Callum Summers broke through the heart of the Sidmouth backline, right in on goal, only for Sidmouth’s keeper, Robbie Powell, to quickly come off his line to smother the ball at Somers feet to keep the score 0-0.
Sidmouth’s first real clear cut chance fell when they are awarded a free kick about twenty yards out, Scott Hughes’ effort was on target, only for Colyton’s keeper to stretch to his full height to pluck the ball to safety.
Colyton’s striker, Frenc Bodor, had a good shooting chance when the ball fell to him on the edge of the box but his shot went wide, the keeper scrambled across desperately.
Sidmouth broke the deadlock in the thirty-second minute when Bodor hit a cracker, seeing the Colyton keeper off his line he hit a strike which goes straight as an arrow into the Colyton net.
With half time approaching Colyton have a final first half chance only for George Richards to shoot straight at Powell who held onto it.
Halftime comes with Sidmouth leading one-nil, but Colyton are far from beaten and the score should set up an exciting second half.
There was a quiet start to the second half, with neither team wishing to be the one to make a mistake and give the opposition the advantage there is a lot of effort from both teams for no reward.
Colyton nearly break the deadlock only for their effort to be cleared off the line by Matt Colson with Sidmouth’s section of tonight’s crowd breathing a big sigh of relief and the Colyton section left frustrated.
Sidmouth sealed victory when Scott Hughes planted his header into the bottom corner of the Colyton net to make it two-nil.
The game became a little fractious after the goal with Colyton losing a bit of their discipline clearly frustrated at the score line.
The fourth official indicated there was five minutes of added time for Colyton to try and get something out of game.
The final whistle blew, seeing Sidmouth Town 2nds winning the Firewatch Devon Senior Cup for the first time brining to an end a very even and entertaining match.
The sponsor’s man of the match award was give to Sidmouth’s keeper Robbie Powell.
