A Mark Rowe header seven minutes from the end of extra-time saw Falmouth Town eliminated from the Walter C Parson League Cup by their lower division opponents. Town had taken the lead twenty minutes into the second half when when good interplay between Ed Timmins and Rob Wearne led to the latter sweeping home a shot from 22 yards.

Town though gave away a penalty through an unnecessary challenge and St. Dennis took full advantage through Rickard.  The home side were reduced to ten men in extra-time when Wearne was injured and all subs had been used.

Falmouth Town grabbed their first win of the season with a great send-half recovery against a desperately unlucky Stoke Gabriel side.  The Devon club, meeting Town for the first time, had gone into the break two goals to the good following two scores in the last five minutes of the half; deservedly so.

Town though came back into the game and on the hour got a goal back when Harry Evans dusted himself down after being pulled down in the box to score from the spot.   Ten minutes later Rob Wearne collided with the Stoke keeper resulting in the stopper being taken off with a broken leg. The Town player was adjudged to be late for the challenge and given a yellow card.

It was a cruel blow for Stoke Gabriel and Town took full advantage.  First Rob Wearne headed home from a Harry Evans free kick to equalise, and then man of the match Evans coolly slotted home his second penalty when Simcock was fouled following a corner.

A much needed win for Town and perhaps a change in fortune.

Town team: Sam Trudgian, Ed Timmins, Jamie Webb, Mike Vanes, Joe Cooper, Andy Sincock, Harry Evans, Gary Bell, Kayne Trevaskis, Rob Wearne, Ross Pope

Subs Used: Ryan Chinn and Mike Smith

An injury-time goal from Harry Evans, his first of the season was not enough to stop The Lilliwhites taking the points in this the 101st league meeting between the clubs.

Mike Body gave the visitors the lead with a well worked goal after 14 minutes but it was a very controversial penalty decision after half an hour that sealed the game.  Body seemed to stumble as he lost possesion in the box and to everyone’s surprise the the referee awarded what was as soft a penalty as you’re likely to see.

A good performance from Town, particularly in the second period.

Falmouth Town slipped to another defeat on the road and are still looking for their first win of the 2014-15 season.  Mike Vanes had given Town the lead, the fifth time in seven outings they have opened the scoring this term, but it had been against the run of play and the Devon side equalised within six minutes and went 2-1 ahead before the break.  Two further scores in the second period completed a convincing win for the home team.

Two pieces of individual brilliance helped earn Falmouth Town a point despite being reduced to 10 men on the hour.   First Wayne Trevaskis scored a superb solo goal when after 61 minutes when  he collected the ball just inside the Launceston half and beat two defenders, before deftly chipping the keeper to notch the best goal seen at Bickland Park this term.

The Clarets had scrambled an 75th minute equaliser; then deep into injury-time,  Sam Trudgian, playing his home début between the sticks, pulled off an amazing save when he tipped a viciously deflected shot onto his cross bar.

Josh Burton was the player dismissed after he had retaliated to a challenge.

Three second half goals saw a strong Saltash side take all three points in this SWPL Premier Division game. Josh Burton had given Town the lead just before half-time when he  swivelled on a loose ball to sore from 15 yards.  Only a minute before The Ashes had been denied an opening goal through a controversial offside decision.

The visitors emerged from the break looking a much more determined side and despite Dan Peters performing heroics in the Falmouth goal they scored through Hughes (53), a 67th minute penalty from Toby Clarke and Matt Cusack two minutes later.
