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.
