A 30th minute header from Dan Evans saw Town slip to another single goal defeat to the Green & Blacks of St. Blazey. It was the third time this season Town had lost 1-0 to the same opponents; it could have been so different but Falmouth couldn’t convert their sustained second half pressure into goals and a grateful St. Blazey took away all three points.
Falmouth Town put Tuesday night’s set back behind them with a superb performance at Mount Wise. Town were dominant from start to finish but somehow found themselves a goal behind at the break. The visitors had had all the play put couldn’t convert any of the numerous chances they created and were stunned when former striker Matt Drumond scored on 44 minutes with a near post header from a corner. It would prove to be Newquay’s only on target effort of the match.
It’s a measure of the team spirit of John Dent’s side at the moment though that Falmouth brushed aside any feelings of injustice to continue in the second half in the way the played in the first. The difference was though that they found the net three times, and it could have been more.
First Harry Evans scored directly from a left sided corner after 53 minutes and then Andy Westgarth put Town into the lead they deserved with a neat finish on 65 minutes.
Town continued to push forward and could have had several more goals before, with 11 minutes left to play, top scorer Westgarth notched his second of the match on his return to his former club.
An excellent performance all round.
Three second half goals saw Falmouth Town finally lose their 2014 unbeaten record. The first period had been a tight affair and the second half continued in that vein until on 66 minutes Stubbs scored with a superb back post volley from Reski’s lobbed pass. Reski stretched the lead after 77 minutes before Martin Watts scored a late goal for a scoreline that, although they deserved the win on the night , was flattering to the visitors.
To rub salt into the wound Harry Evans was sent off deep into injury time for a second yellow; it was Town’s first dismissal of the season.
Town Reserves hopes of reaching the league Cup final were dashed by a well organised Mullion side in this semi-final at Penryn’s Kernick Road ground. Town had looked the better side early on but Mullion snatched the lead on the half-hour. Ethan Fearn saved a penalty just before the break to restict Mullion to a one goal lead but two quick goals after the re-start ended the match as a contest. Mullion added two more and will play either St. Day or Wendron United in the final.
