Two goals from Dave Pearse were enough to give Barnstaple Town their seventh win in a row on Easter Monday.Barum beat Buckland Athletic 2-1 in the Toolstation Western League Premier fixture, with Pearses goals the difference, but the match performance was far from vintage. I thought it was a horrendous game of football, said Barnstaple manager Barry Yeo. Im not going to lie, I thought it was a dire game to watch, he added. Pearse opened the scoring after seven minutes when he fired in at his near post after Liam Gregorys cross was headed back in by Steve Holland. But, after that, Barnstaple began to lose their shape, with Gregory and Holland often pinned back. Buckland got their reward just before half-time when Marc Revells shot from the edge of the area found the bottom corner. They nearly went ahead after the break, but for a magnificent goal-line block from Aaron Harper-Penman. Pearse got his and Barnstaples second after the hour, again following up on a ball back into the box, this time from a free kick. Bucklands chances of a comeback were not helped by the sending off of Simon Laughton, who brought down Liam Gregory with 15 minutes remaining. Despite the performance, Yeo was delighted with the result. He said: Sometimes weve been great this year and not got what we deserved, and today well take [the result]. Pearsey has popped up with two vital goals for us and we took our chances today. I dont like to single people, out but I thought our skipper [Harper-Penman] today was an absolute Trojan, a leader right from the start. Hes created one, and in his defensive duties he was absolutely first class.
