A late Harry Evans goal, his second of the match, gave Town a precious point in an topsy turvy and error strewn game that was played in very difficult conditions. It was Evans who had opened the scoring after 12 minutes when the Elmore defence failed to intercept a low corner from the England Colleges international and the ball found it’s way into the net.
Elmore struck back on 22 minutes with a tremendous shot that gave Falmouth stand-in keeper Richard Kellow no chance. Six minutes later the away side broke free to snatch the lead and although Town thought they had equalised through Evans, the referee disallowed the goal and the visitor’s took a 2-1 lead to the break.
It looked as if the Tiverton based side were going to take the three points comfortably when they went into a 3-1 lead early in the second period after they scored from a poorly defended corner. Town hit back on the hour though as Gary Bell grabbed his first goal for the club with a fine finish from the edge of the box. Town now had their tails up and their pressure was rewarded when Andy Westgarth, a hat-trick hero in the first fixture between the teams at Horsdon Park, smashed a loose ball home from close range.
It looked as if Elmore had snatched victory when they took the lead once more but with 2 minutes on the clock the swirling wind caught Evans’ right wing cross and the ball flew into the Elmore goal at the back post to give Town the point their efforts deserved.
