Okehampton traveled to the league leaders after 2 defeats knowing they
would have to play well to get the win. The visitors started brightly
and had chances to take the lead but the hosts goalkeeper was equal to
everything they threw at him. The away side continued to dominate
limiting the home side to very few attacks, it took half an hour for the
first goal to come though when Luke Miller with a reverse strike after
the ball had bobbled around the area. Oke started the second half on the
attack but the home side countered and managed to make the most of a
defensive lapse to equalise with only their second chance of the game.
Undeterred the visitors rallied and won a short corner which saw Josh
Speak drag flick their second goal and put them back into the lead. Then
came the move and goal of the season already, They away side broke with
Brett Lawson who played a one two with Speak before finding Miller who
smashed the ball across for Mark Parsons who was unmarked and he
converted the easiest of chances. A short corner then produced
Okehampton's forth after some good dribbling Greg Williams slotted home
before the home side scrambled in a consolation with six minutes to go. A
fantastic performance from Okehampton who will host Ottery Crickets A
on Saturday at 13:00. We thank our new sponsor The London Inn for their continued support.
