Tedburn St Mary 3-3 Beer Albion 2nd’s
Beer Albion Reserves remain 4 points clear at the top of Devon and Exeter Division 2 despite being held to a 3-3 draw away at Tedburn St Mary.
Disappointingly the Fishermen threw away a 3-1 lead, leaving Managers Bond and Driver frustrated and disappointed with the overall performance especially after their rousing win against Teignmouth the previous week. Poor marking, particularly at set pieces, and a failure to close down their opponents cost them the win.
Tedburn took the lead with a header from just 4 yards but Alex Paget equalised with a cool finish. Beer took the lead through Tom Perry and went further ahead through Harry Lawrence. But Tedburn reduced the arrears and scored the equaliser with just 8 minutes remaining.
Midfielder Alex Paget and goalkeeper Mattie Vincent were the pick of the Beer players.
