Any assistance with the below would be most appreciated

本道山中村
大谷吉隆…先手吉勝、木下頼継は藤川手前、藤下村に前進
吉隆先手に続き平塚為広・左馬助・庄兵衛、戸田重政・内記

Hon Michiyama Nakamura Ōtani Yoshitaka… sente Yoshikatsu, kinoshita yoritsugu wa Fujikawa temae, Fuji Shimomura ni zenshin Yoshitaka sente ni tsudzuki hiratsuka tamehiro samesuke Shōbee, toda shigemasa naiki


My attempt

On the main road to the mountain village
Ôtani Yoshitsugu followed by Ôtani Yoshiharu. To their front along the Fujikawa River towards Fujishita village were Kinoshita Yoritsugu, Toda Shigemasa and Toda Naiki with Hiratsuka Tamehiro trailing back towards Yoshiharu.

The two bits I am having a problem with are 左馬助・庄兵衛 are these additional names as I can make no sense of them – [Samesuke and Shôbe?]

Hopefully I have made some sense out of the rest!!

左馬助 is probably Samanosuke, and 庄兵衛 Shobei.

Thanks Tatsunoshi

As the family name is not repeated (as indicated by the Ôtani) I wonder if that would indicate Hiratsuka Samanosuke and Hiratsuka Shobei, that does seem to make some sense then as ja-wiki lists his sons as
平塚為景 Hiratsuka Tamekaga
平塚庄兵衛 Hiratsuka Shobei

Possibly Samanosuke and Tamekaga are one and the same

Yep, I would agree with that.
