The home side took the lead on 23 minutes when a low cross found the head of a diving Josh Klein-Davies, who made no mistake with his forceful header.

Odd Down played out the rest of the half looking good for their lead but an inspired Athletic team came out after the break and levelled on 54 minutes when an inviting cross was fired home by the unmarked Gavin Hammond.
Kenny Griffiths denied Odd Down with two superb saves within a matter of minutes to keep the scores level but Buckland were creating the better chances and got the winner on 85 minutes when Jamie Mudge was played through and powered the ball past Lewis Pierre in the home goal.
The Downers thought they had found a late equaliser with the last kick of the game when an enticing free-kick eluded Griffiths and found the net but the assistant flagged for a foul on the Buckland custodian.
Larkhall Athletic's scheduled trip to Bridport was postponed.
