Devon Cup Final

Sidmouth Under13's Devon Cup Final

Yesterday I was to witness another tense and closely fought game, this time between our Under 13s and Topsham in the final of the Devon Cup held at Tiverton. After going a try down in the first half and having to fiercely defend for large chunks of the game our lads really stepped up in the second half and deservedly levelled the match with about 10 minutes to go.

The last 10 minutes provided both teams with the opportunity to really go full out and they didn’t disappoint! The game went from one end of the pitch to the other and ended with up with outstanding Sidmouth defence on their own line before the final whistle. As there is no permitted extra time at this age, the captains tossed a coin for home advantage – the result being that the replay will be held at the Blackmore.

Well done to both teams and Coaches....
