Bideford Go Nine Points Clear

5 years ago By User 51280

The Evo-Stik League Southern Division One South & West game between top of the table Bideford and second-bottom Wimborne Town was the only game in all three divisions to beat the freezing conditions on Saturday.

And the Robins 3-1 win saw them open up a nine-point lead at the top of the table.

Bideford were always in control after going 2-0 up inside the opening 15 minutes at the Sports Ground.

Matt Hockley scored the first from the penalty spot following a foul by Paul Roast on Matt Andrew in the 10th minute.

And Andrew added the second himself 5 minutes later when a big deflection off Roast left Magpies keeper Jason Harvell with no chance.

The visitors responded with a penalty of their own after 25 minutes - Jack Furzer handling a shot from Tom Jeffes - George Webb converting from the spot.

But Bideford restored the two-goal cushion 10 minutes before half-time through Ian Sampson.

A scrappy second half failed to reproduce any further goals and the Robins comfortably held out to stretch their unbeaten run to fourteen games.
