Falmouth Town (0) 0 Torpoint Athletic (1) 2
Falmouth Town were not at the races on the day and a highly efficient Torpoint team deservedly took maximum points to preserve their bogey team status. Town came close to opening the scoring after eight minutes when Dan Richardson put a difficult chance over the bar but Torpoint gradually took hold of the game. The opening goal came after 18 minutes from what looked a very soft free kick awarded against Mike Vanes. Torpoint left back Tom Payne took full advantage hitting an unstoppable shot from 25 yards that gave Ryan Barnes little chance.
Torpoint were even more in control in the second half and wrapped up the points when sixteen minutes from the end Payne scored his second of the game with a near post header; and although a weakened Town team never gave up, they could find no way through the visitors defence. Torpoint’s Smith was given a straight red card on 80 minutes for a dangerous tackle.
