Town got back to winning ways and led 4-0 (2-0 at half-time) through goals from Ben Ambrose 2, Jason Roberts and Nathan Macintosh. Never-say-die Goonhavern scored two late goals through Marc Wilson and Sam Waters to give the score a more respectable look.
Champions Falmouth Town Reserves suffered an early season set back with this defeat to rivals Illogan. Town scored through a Luke Wort penalty but goals from Ian Cullingham, Sam Emery, Adam Calloway won the points for the visitors.
Town notched up their 100th SWPL win, and the first of this season, with a rousing second half performance. The home side went into the break a goal to the good after an evenly contested first 45 minutes. The scorer, on the half hour, was centre forward Aaron Hulme.
The major turning point of the game came after 55 minutes. Jason Chapman made a smart double save before gathering the ball and launching it up field for skipper Mark Vercesi to score the archetypal route-one goal. From almost being 0-2 down it was all square and from that point on Falmouth held the upper hand.
A few minutes later Mark Vercesi displayed rare sportsmanship when, after the referee had awarded Town a goal following a Wayne Quinn corner, he admitted to committing a hand ball, and the score was disallowed.
On 67 minutes Vercesi tapped a free-kick just outside the box square to Wayne Quinn who drove the ball into the corner of the net. Glen Squires then added a late brace, and although the final score was slightly flattering, Town were worthy winners on the night.
The Reserves have got off to a great start to the 2012-13 season, and the defense of their Cornwall Combination League title, with a win at Troon. The all important goals came from Steve Newbury and Adam Pryor.
