CAMERON Buckle scored a brace as the Basingstoke Buffalo gave reigning South Two league champions the Oxford City Stars a real fright on Sunday night.

The title chasers escaped with a 3-2 victory in a really tight match.

Buckle netted the opener 47 seconds into the second session assisted by Liam Coleman and Sam Brooks.

Oxford levelled things before the interval and by 49:18 led 3-1.

A minute later, Buckle finished a powerplay move involving Coleman and Marcus Russell to set a tense finale.

This Sunday, the Buffalo entertain Haringey.
