With the Dragons playing in the GFSN national league and the cup it was decided that the South West league games were going to be development games for the whole squad, giving every player within the club an opportunity to gain valuable game time which is vitally important in the growth and development of the club.
Exeter got off to a solid start scoring on 5 minutes they doubled that lead on 8 minutes after a defensive slip up by the Dragons. It was never going to be easy being two nil down after 8 minutes but the Dragons in true Dragons spirit kept on battling. Exeter were applying a lot of pressure in the first 30 minutes but the Dragons were coping well after the initial disappointment of going 2-0 down. The Dragons started to make progress by getting wide and putting some useful crosses into the box but unfortunately with no end product. On 37 minutes after a corner kick Exeter scored there 3rd goal and that’s how it remained until half time.
Second half Christian replaced Kris in goal who went up front with Simon and Luke and Richie came on for David K, and Daren. The Dragons started off bright in the second half and looked to create themselves an opening to get back in the game but that was not to be as on 53 minutes Exeter scored there 4th goal. On 65 minutes Exeter made it 5-0 after a break from a Dragons corner. But still the Dragons never gave up and chances were being created that on another day may have gone in the back of the net. Before the 90 minutes were up Exeter added 2 further goals to there tally making the final score 7-0 to the Lions.
One final note it was great to see our former chairman Ray Wilson who now plays for the Lions we wish him all the best at the Lions.
