Bridgwater College 2, South Devon College 0
GOALS from Tom Hopkins and Sam Anthony helped Bridgwater cruise to a 2-0 win over South Devon College.
In a high tempo start, Gary Berry’s weaving run into the box saw him brought down and Hopkins made no mistake from the spot kick.
Bridgwater soon doubled that lead when a pinpoint Callum Kennelly cross was met with a bullet header from Anthony leaving the keeper no chance.
Even though the second half saw no goals, it was comfortable win for Bridgwater and coach Lloyd Dean said he was impressed with the performance.
He added: “A lot of teams will come to Bridgwater and be content with placing players behind the ball. With that in mind, we were very patient with the ball and were able to maintain width throughout the game.”
Man of the match: Tom Hopkins Team; Turner, Taylor, Hembery, Hallett, Hopkins, Clements, Berry, Kennelly, Villis, Anthony, Connick (Reed, 70). Subs not used; Smith, Hurley (GK).
