09/12/2018 – Ottery St Mary Girls 1-2 Westexe U12s Girls

 

Ottery Mary FC U12 vs West Exe U12 GIRLS – 09/12/18

 

After a brief discussion about goal and pitch sizes, the Super Seven (reduced by one from the Awesome Eight) lined up in expectation of a fairly balanced game based on the previous recent  encounter with Ottery. The first half bore this out with most action in the West Exe half and some gallant efforts by Misha, Maisy and Jess to keep a clean sheet until half-time. Some great holding play and connected passes from Beth linking up with Suki and Jess led to some chances. Also noteworthy was the assertive play from Jess and the ever present grafter Maisy together with numerous great saves from Misha (8+) which kept us at 0-0 and still in the game.

 

A motivational talk by Martin and the girls lined up for the second-half. However Ottery slipped in a great shot and left us  behind at 1-0.  Undaunted, Rayanna  got the ball and after a brief run forwards, lobbed it into the top left hand corner from 15 yards, a shot in the making all season.

All of a sudden we had a game on and in the unfamiliar territory of a draw could we dare to hope for an equaliser? The next 10 minutes were full of chances for West Exe, Sophia chased the ball towards the goalie several times and narrowly missed scoring her debut.

 

A confident Suki already great at holding onto the ball under pressure  took a great shot from 10 yards toe-punting it in with a force that said ‘this is going in’. At 2-1 and 10 minutes to go we dared to dream. Cue much agitation and encouragement on the West Exe sidelines as we endured a lingering last 10 minutes worthy of an England World Cup Semi-final. The girls stepped up and defended well and even cleared it to open up chances for another goal. Despite tired legs and no subs all girls put in 100% effort in the last few minutes to ensure the win.

 

The final whistle saw celebration scenes not seen at a West Exe match for several years!

 

(Wo)Man-of the match was awarded to Misha for her dynamic performance throughout the game –  Great work Misha!

 

Bring it on Crediton.

01/12/2018 – West Hill Wasps 1-5 U10s Wolves

Saturday 01/12/2018

A day where the weather beat most matches, this one went ahead on a respectable looking surface.
Westhill were known opponents from the U9s plate competition last year, Wolves coming out with a marginal 1-0 victory.
Upon lining up it appeared the locals had been feeding their players double the amount the Westexe boys had as they towered above them.
This aerial and physical prowess started to show with long throw-ins into the box proving a difficult and new challenge to deal with for the Wolves.
West hill worked this pressure into a well taken and deserved goal.
In the familiar territory of being a goal down, Westexe reacted instantly, passing the ball like they had an extra player on the field, using every available pocket of space on the smaller away pitch. Wolves began a relentless barrage of shots on goal, with every single blue shirt taking their turn to try to draw the game level. The West Hill goalie, who was up for the challenge got something on all but 1 of the shots before half time.
HT 1-1
The half time team talk heard the boys in very high spirits with a clear confidence in the way they were playing.
The game continued in the blues favour with some delightful forward play resulting in 2 quick goals which saw the home side realising the game was slipping away from them.
Westexe finished the day 5-1 victors and through to the quarter finals 🏆
The whole game was played in very good spirits with both sets of supporters applauding both teams good play.

24/11/2018 – U13s Rangers 3-1 Exmouth

Saturday 24/11/18

West Exe Rangers U13’s took part in a very competitive match this morning against Exmouth United Youth. The first half was played at a very fast pace with shots from both teams. The deadlock was broken by a ferocious shot from the West Exe Rangers right wing from far outside the opposition box, sailing past a diving keeper into the far left corner of the net. Both keepers were called into action throughout the half with the closest shot being from Rangers hitting the post.
The 2nd half saw the competitive nature of the match continue. Rangers netting a 2nd with a good bit of link up play, but Exmouth quickly firing back with their first goal with a superb run from their forwards and a confident strike to put the ball beyond the keepers reach. Neither team willing to let the pace of the game drop, pushing on the attack and both teams introduced fresh legs. The game edged towards Rangers with a free kick in a dangerous area being awarded. A very well placed free kick dropped a ball at the feet of the attacking players and a 3rd goal well taken completed the win.

Without doubt Rangers best performance of the season, and a thoroughly good game to watch.

24/11/2018 – U12s 3-3 Crediton

Saturday 24/11/2018

Westexe U12s took part in a nail biting match against Crediton and had to share the points, drawing 3-3.
With the score level at half time, Westexe took the lead with a wonderfully executed goal which was chipped over the Crediton keeper from 15 yards.
Crediton responded thanks to a little help from the ref; a Westexe player was deemed to have put in a dangerous tackle in the home side penalty area and the spot kick converted to draw level.
A few minutes later a piece of tactical ingenuity from the sidelines saw change made which had immediate effect. No more than 30 seconds after the change a rocket shot from 20 yards out, flew into the Crediton net despite the keepers best efforts to save it.
Westexe were cruising…
Perhaps a little to much however as Crediton scored the next 2 thanks to sloppy defending from the blues, the Crediton third goal was converted just 4 minutes from time.
The game looked lost.
The last move of the game saw a hopeful long ball latched onto by the Westexe forward who managed to bundle the ball over the line to the sounds of cheers and the referees whistle blowing for time.

An entertaining match to watch with some positive free flowing football in the attacking third.
