Exeter had a great week in the first round of the Devon KO Cup. On Thursday the U15 team travelled to Barnstaple where they emerged victorious after a hard fought match to make it into the Semi Finals.
Next up, the U17’s kicked off a triple bill of KO Cup First Round matches at the Pyramids on Sunday by easily overcoming Newton Abbot 29-4. The Exeter Ladies then took on Paignton in an eagerly anticipated match which saw Meritxell Escoda-Manzano score 8 to lead the Exeter team to a 15-4 drubbing of their South Devon rivals.
To cap the night off the Seniors took on a youthful Barnstaple team, and ended up being 7-4 down at one stage just after half time. Haydn Lawson, Jack Hutchens and stalwart of the North Devon Club Nigel Smith were all on fine shooting form for the opposition. In the second half Exeter’s experience showed as they moved up a gear and finished with a comfortable 13-9 victory, also progressing to the Semi Finals.
