Torridgeside came out on top against Appledore in their South West Peninsula League Good Friday derby.

Ollie Kenneally followed up on his own penalty to edge a 1-0 win for T-Side at Donnacroft.

Appledore keeper Jimmy Thorne had saved Kenneally's 80th-minute spot-kick, but unwittingly parried the ball straight back to the substitute, who side-footed the ball into the net.

For the Fishermen, the defeat was a blow to their chances of finishing runners-up in Division One East.

But for the home side, in front of the biggest league crowd of the season, it's a welcome lift after what was looking to be a somewhat flat end to the season.

They edged the first-half, enjoying more time on the ball than Appledore and having a few more opportunities, although none were truly clear-cut.

Curtis Pyke dragged a shot wide 30 minutes in, and seven minutes later Sam Box blasted a shot just wide.

The Fishermen suffered a blow inside 10 minutes when Brian Levien was forced off with a foot injury suffered in a 50-50 challenge with George Nancekivell.

The loss of Levien was undoubtedly a blow, and it wasn't until the second half that they began troubling the Torridgeside defence.

Sam Fishwick hit the bar with a well-struck free-kick shy of the hour after Tom Marsh was brought down by keeper James Greenaway outside the penalty area.

The turning point came with 10 minutes remaining, when Nathan Knight was dragged down inside the area. After a delay, Kenneally gave the home side the lead.
