North Devon are on top of the Verde Recreo Southern One after a 5-5 draw away to Sidmouth and Ottery on Saturday.

After a win at home to Tavistock last weekend, North Devon went into the game full of confidence, and that soon materialised into a goal when Dave Orr deflected the ball in.

Sidmouth equalised quickly but Ash Thorne picked up a rebound and passed the ball into an empty net to give North Devon the lead again.

The wheels fell off after that with the hosts scoring three quick goals without reply to go into half time 4-2 up.

North Devon came out fighting after the break. Guy Cockroft scored a penalty corner flick before Ash Thorne scored twice more from close range.

Sidmouth equalised with a goal on the counter attack to make it 5-5.

North Devon are at home to Exeter University E on Saturday, with kick-off at Park Community School at 2.30pm.
