Lockhart Cup FInal

Recommended Posts

Played at Penryn

Stithians 1-3 West Cornwall

A game between two sides who have been competing in the top half of Division 2 all season. West Cornwall have only lost 1 league game all season against a Stithians side who have beaten 3 Premier Division sides this season as well as Helston to reach this final. Both league games between the two sides have been draws so this could have been anyones game.

Stithians started strongly and were soon ahead with a goal from Ben Cox. Following this Stithians continued to play well and probably should have finished the game off by half time, with West Cornwall only having the odd break on the counter.

The second half started as the first half finished with Stithians on top, however they were unable to create the crucial second goal. After 65 minutes West Cornwall made them pay when a long drive took a deflection to find the net and make it 1-1.

Stithians responded well and continued to press, but as the game entered the final 15 minutes, Stithians started to get nervy and drop deeper and West Cornwall sensed their chance. The winner unfortunately came from an own goal with 9 minutes to go (asked the lino at the time).

3 minutes later Stithians had a strong appeal for a penalty which was turned down.

Following this things all got a bit unnecessary when a few tackles flew in resulting in a bit of handbags and red cards for a player from each side.

West Cornwall the scored a third from a very good free kick , which was the icing on the cake from West Cornwall.

Well done to West Cornwall on winning the cup and Stithians move back to the league chasing promotion (depending on what position that needs to be!!)
