Seaton thumped by Heavies
PUBLISHED: 16:09 13 September 2017
Seaton continue to seek a first win of the new Macron League season after being thumped 5-0 on their visit to Exeter to face Heavitree United.
The game began brightly for the visitors as Josh French had his attempt well saved, unfortunately Seaton were too slow on the rebound.
‘Too slow’ seems like good way to sum up the Town performance from there on in!
The Heavies closed down well and soon found themselves two goals up in 15 minutes, both goals being clinical finishes.
Despite being only midway through the first half it was as if the hosts could smell blood as they continued to press forward and look for more.
Not long after the previous two went in and Heavitree had bagged a third. It was at this point that the Seaton boss decided to tweak their system.
The ply worked and no further goals were conceded for the remainder of the first half.
As the second half began, Seaton were going to need something special to produce a comeback but it was clear from the off that this wasn’t going to happen.
Heavitree kept up the intense pressure and Seaton struggled to string three passes together.
Two more goals compounded the Town misery on the day, the final goal coming after the Town back line failed to clear their lines at a corner – something that summed up the general performance on the day!
Town boss Brendon Willey said: “It was disappointing in as much as this was a
severely lacklustre performance by the team. However, that shouldn’t shadow the terrific performance Heavitree put in.
“They worked the ball quickly and precisely through the middle and outclassed us, on the day, in every element of the game.”
