Plymouth and West Devon four

Woodford 0

Yelverton Villa 4

YELVERTON started 2013 brightly with a dominant performance against Woodford, scoring their opening goal inside the first two minutes.

Villa forced a corner from their first attack, which the Woodford defence could only half clear, and the ball ran out to Steve Harwood who smashed in a 25 yard shot which was too hot for the Woodford keeper to handle.

The Woodford defence gifted Villa a goal in the 10th minute when a woeful back pass was intercepted by Ben Pridham, who fired home past the helpless keeper to double the lead.

Yelverton continued to dominate the game, with Ben Maughan and Dave Harwood seeing good chances going just off target, but were unable to add to their lead before the break.

Villa started the second half as brightly as the first, catching the whole Woodford team asleep from the kick off.

Following a quick break down the left, the ball came to Pridham in the box;  his effort was blocked by the sprawling Woodford keeper, but was unlucky to see the ball rebound to Mike Chatfield who fired the third goal into the unguarded net.

The Yelverton defence was solid, in particularly Tom Lewis who had an inspired game while keeper Mike Lopez, when called upon bravely dealt with Woodford's attacks. 

Villa continued to dominate and Adam Measom saw his header whistle past the post but wrapped up the points when Pridham bagged his second with a towering header from Maughan's corner.
