Two own goals won it for Town in what proved to be a tough match at a wet and muddy Bickland Park. The heavy conditions were a hindrance to Falmouth’s free flowing game and clear cut chances were difficult to come by.
Highlights of the game proved to be a stunning save by Josh Colwill from Ian Hodges and an equally stunning own goal from Adam Sleep. The Camels defender finished one of Town’s best moves of the game by hammering the ball past his own keeper to give Town a 2-0 lead.
Earlier Dan Green’s corner resulted in Leighton Carhart putting the ball into his own net.
The game ended anxiously for Town supporters as Camelford pushed strongly for an equaliser in the last few minutes after a late Keystone Kop moment led to Josh Insley tapping into an empty net.
