Stitch2Print Devon & Exeter League division one: Wellington Reserves 0, Winkleigh 3
Top-of-the-table Winkleigh completed the double, with all three goals from set pieces, to stretch their lead at the Playing Field.
The results leaves our Reserves needing three points from their final league game at home to Beer Albion on Wednesday to have an outside chance of third place and potential promotion.
A bullet of a free kick opened the scoring on ten minutes, followed with a corner 14 minutes later to leave the Tangerines with a mountain to climb.
The visitors’ keeper was alert to the threats Wellington created, with several clearances made as the hosts tried to get in behind their back line.
Straight from the start of the second half, a corner was converted to widen the deficit.
A period of pressure could not reap its rewards as the game finished with both teams cancelling each other out.
