South West Peninsula League division one East Okehampton Argyle 4 Buckfastleigh Rangers 0 OKEHAMPTON needed to win this game having not registered a victory since September and they worked hard to secure a decisive victory over a team two places above them in the league. The game was even from the kick-off with Buckfastleigh having the better of the early play; however on nine minutes, Steve Williams latched on to a mistake in the Bucks? defence, burst through into the box and unleashed an unstoppable shot to fire Argyle into the lead. Play continued fairly evenly, but it was now Argyle who were creating the better chances and they were rewarded when Steve Kinsey dribbled through Buckfastleigh?s defence and fired home after 20 minutes. The second half saw Buckfastleigh come out and make a determined effort to get back into the game and Okehampton?s defence had to be alert to keep them at bay. Matt Mortimer had an outstanding game for Argyle, often forging forward to set up counter attacks, and Elliot Collins caught the eye also with his solid tackling, quick recovery and all round hard work. Having weathered this period of pressure, Okehampton started to take control of the match and the hard work and skill of Chris Wills and Robbie Miller in midfield began to pay off as Buckfastleigh were continually pushed back into their own half. Up front, the three forwards were posing continual problems for the Bucks? defence and there were several close shaves for the away side?s goal. Their goalkeeper Stuart Furay was having an inspired afternoon and stopped shot after shot. In the 83rd minute, Darren Prouse, making his first team debut this season, ran on to a through ball and rifled home Argyle?s third goal to make the game safe. This was no more than he deserved as he had settled into the side well and been a constant threat all afternoon. The scoring was completed two minutes later, when making his only mistake of the afternoon, the Bucks? keeper cleared the ball straight to Chris Wills, who showed great presence of mind to fire the ball straight back into the net from 30 yards. This was a good team performance from the Okes, who still have several players missing with injuries, and sees them leapfrog Buckfastleigh in the league table. l Okehampton Argyle on Saturday are away to unbeaten league leaders Budleigh Salterton, kick-off 2.45pm.
