Devon Women's Football: Teignmouth lose match despite putting up a good show

Torbay Weekly

In the Western Division of the Joma Devon Women's Football League, Teignmouth put up a good show at home to Signal Box Oak Villa.

They took the lead with a goal from Amy Mitchell before eventually losing by three goals to one, but lost the influential Nikki Lipscombe with an ankle injury in the second half and the visitors took advantage and join Torquay United and Activate on 15 points as the top three teams.

Plainmoor's trip to Plymouth to play Activate resulted in an 11-1 defeat, despite also taking an early lead from a penalty tucked away by Ellie Sparks.

The home side then sprung into action with Heidi Davies helping herself to a personal haul of six goals, Stacey Tonkin bagged a hat-trick, with Amy Wise and Becky McMullin scoring one each, which lifts Activate to the top of the table on goal difference.

Halwill FC also travelled to Plymouth to visit Uni Plymouth and although they only started the game with ten players, scored at regular intervals and with 11 players ran out 10-1 winners.

Their goal scorers were Chloe Nassey-Berry with four, Aoife Aherne with three, Laura Hilleson - Perrett with two and Keisha Ellis with one.
