The Vikings second string came away pointless from their trip to Exeter on Saturday
In a bizarre game even the hosts weren’t sure how the result panned out, playing some good football on a poor surface Town started brightly with a starting line-up that was missing three experienced regular players and a recognised keeper. Heavitree struck the first goal with their first shot on target after fifteen minutes. Leigh Adey between the sticks had no chance. Within minutes Adey brought down the striker and the resultant penalty was slotted home. We don’t deserve this was the host management response as Viking bosses Bargery and Thomas stared on in disbelief. Another goal was added to make it 3-0 at half time.
Team talk? What can you say? We are playing all the football, but we were losing 3-0!!
The second period saw Town dominate for most of the time but all too often the final ball was poor. Louis Adey fired in from a free kick and a comeback was on the cards, but a costly mistake in our own half sealed the points for the Heavies.
