Elmore AFC v Budleigh Salterton AFC


Eagles too powerful for the Robins.

The Eagles got back to winning ways in a bit of style this weekend, and a repeat of the scoreline when we visited Budleigh earlier in the season.
The game managed to go ahead, if not a bit of a sticky surface, thanks to the strong winds that have blown across the ground this week making the pitch playable.
We started of at good tempo, controlling the game from the start, looking dangerous from our first attacks.
It wasn’t long before Harry Butler went passed his marker out wide and delivered a lovely cross for Jordan Casey to head home from inside the box on 8 minutes, making it 1-0 Elmore.
Then on 11 minutes, Harry Butler again beat his marker, and this time drove a ball across the box, and again finding Jordan Casey on the spot to turn home for his and Elmore’s 2nd of the game, 2-0.
With constant pressure being applied, the visitors were finding it difficult to make any kind of meaningful attack, leaving home keeper Barrett as a mere spectator for large periods of the 1st half.
On 20 minutes a handball stopping the ball crossing the line, saw us awarded a penalty. Jordan Bastin stepped forward to take, and with a delicate chip down the centre of the goal saw us extend our lead to 3-0, and Bastin to 31 for the season.
On 43 minutes, Jordan Bastin picked up the ball outside the far right edge of the Budleigh box, and with some sharp footwork, drifted passed the defender into the corner of the box, and fired home a rocket into the far corner of the net passing their keeper before he had much chance to react. 4-0 Elmore, and Bastin’s 32nd of the season.
Half time arrived, and with little needed to be added to a good 1st half performance, the lads were ready for the 2nd half to get under way.
The 2nd half started much as the 1st, more pressure applied early on but without the finishing touch this time to trouble the refs notebook again and extend our lead further.
Budleigh had their moments, few and far between, but they never gave up and when possible tried to counter attack to try and get something out of the game.
We then had a brief spell where we stepped off the gas slightly, a little less pressure, ball retention and quality of passing saw our standards drop below where we had been, but that didn’t last for too long fortunately.
On 65 minutes, Daniel Tapp got his name on the scoresheet with a strong header at the near post from a well directed free kick, 5-0 now and cruising somewhat.
As we stepped up the work rate again, applying more pressure, it wasn’t long before new signing Rob Knight, who had up to that point had a very good game for his first start of the season in the Green and White of Elmore colours, fired home a superb shot from the edge of the box for his 1st goal and Elmore’s 6th, taking it to 6-0 on 79 minutes.
On 83 minutes, Steve Orchard put in a lovely near post corner for Rob Knight to add to his tally with a powerful near post header making it 7-0 to Elmore, and Knight with his 2nd of the game.
Within minutes, 2 to be exact, it was Ashton Hewitt who drove into the left edge of the Budleigh box, and unleashed a superb left footed shot into the opposite corner of the net, a fitting final goal of the game taking the score to 8-0, and a very good performance to hopefully put to bed some sloppiness of the last few games.
Full credit to Budleigh after a battling performance which saw them on the back foot from the first few minutes of the game, and but for some fine saves from their keeper, the scoreline may have easily crept over double figures.
Also with Budleigh only having 11 players available, and no assistance from their 2nds who didn’t have a game, you were a credit to your club the way you played never giving up, or resorting to any foul means during the game.
Next week we welcome high flying Brixham AFC to Horsdon Park for a 3pm kick off, who currently sit in 2nd place in the league, another huge test for the squad as we still have hopes of finishing in the top 3 this season, so please come on down and support your local club and cheer the boys on....
