West Hill Wasps 6, Okehampton 0

West Hill Wasps Under-11s recorded a comprehensive clean-sheet success.

Playing with a back three, wasps attacked in waves and took a 9th minute lead when Charlie Pullen thumped home from six-yards after a great run and cut-back from Ollie Benson down the left. A minute later Pullen doubled the score with a looping header over the keeper following a skilful run and cross from Jack Hatswell on the right flank. Will Amos, Bailey Wallace and Euan Webber kept it tight at the back and Ben Marsh and Tom Simmons controlled possession in midfield. Alex Douglas, Ollie Pugsley and Joseph Green came on at half-time and Pugsley finished coolly by lifting the ball over the keeper after his initial shot had been well saved. The fourth goal came from a mazy run and shot from Hatswell which cannoned off a defender and then the keeper before Benson allowed it to trickle over the line. Benson and Hatswell were constant threats down the flanks and Benson set up Pugsley to rifle a right-foot volley to make it five. Benson completed the scoring with a trademark strike direct from a corner. Benson was replaced and came off to a standing ovation from both sets of supporters. Ben Marsh was named the Wasps Man of the Match.
