P&WD Saturday League: Division Two leaders Windmill hold off Roborough challenge
ROBOROUGH Reserves showed a great improvement on their 6-0 defeat by Hideaway Cafe last week, but still narrowly lost 2-1 at leaders Windmill.
Robbie Brimming put Windmill ahead from the spot, after the instrumental Shaun Vincent was felled by two challenges in the area, and Windmill deservedly increased their lead before half-time.
From a well-worked move starting in their own half, Mike Dalley applied the finish into the roof of the net from six yards.

PHIL BURGOYNE scored with virtually the last kick of the game to continue his fine scoring run and give Plymstock United a 3-2 win at Plymouth Rangers.
United took the lead five minutes before the interval when Lee Strickland netted directly from a corner, but Ramazan Isik levelled for the hosts.
Rangers had worked hard on their Tothill pitch to ensure the game went ahead, but again fell behind when Burgoyne grabbed his first,however, towards the end Florin Decean grabbed an equaliser.
However, there was still time for Burgoyne to notch his sixth goal in just four appearances for Plymstock, who retain slim hopes of promotion.
Stu Martin and Lewis Pringle each scored twice as Novahomes triumphed 6-1 at Princetown.
Playing up the slope, Novahomes held a slender 1-0 advantage at the break, but led by in-form captain Paul Greenway, they eventually eased to victory.
Pringle scored the goal of the game with a screamer from outside the area, while Steve Lord and Greenway each netted after neat build-up play.
Princetown managed a consolation when Ryan Smale scored from the spot after Robbie Court was fouled, but this result made it four successive defeats.
