BrauntonÂ produced one of their best performances of the Devon Football League to crush Alphington 5-1 and consolidate third position in the table.Â
Captain Luke Austen got the ball rolling with a close-range finishÂ and the lead was extended by Ryan Mugford, expertly weaving his way through the Alphas before lashing a terrific finish into the corner from just inside the box.Â
Alphington, who are just a place belowÂ BrauntonÂ in the table, pulled a goal back to make things interesting but a fierceÂ insiwingingÂ corner was palmed out by the visiting custodian, with debutant Callum Davey in the right place to poke home.Â
The win was effectively sealed by Austen, his second of a windy game, launching a cross from the right that deceived the Alphasâ€™ goalkeeper to creep over the line.Â
Tom Marsh completed the scoring forÂ Braunton, who welcome Liverton United to Camp Lobb on Saturday.Â
