Parkway 4 Tavistock 3 (HT 2-1)

Good game for the neutrals on a pretty miserable and wet evening in front of a small crowd with plenty of other attractions in the Plymouth area . Tense ending for the Parkway fans though .

Parkway started off where they had finished on Saturday by playing quick and entertaining football with Ryan Richards,Mark Berry and Lewis Young to the the fore . Two smartly taken Richards goals ensured Parkway went in 2-1 up at time . The second half started off Richards completing his hat trick and Lance Bailey rounding off a slick passing move by sidefooting the ball into the net . 4-1 up. Game Over . How wrong we were ....

A combination of Parkway seemingly switching off and Tavistock gaining encouragement from this had the effect of causing panic reminiscent of someone shouting "fire" in a fireworks factory within the Parkway team . Every time Tavvy had the ball in the area they looked like adding to their two further second half goals . The defence and goalkeepers were the obvious people to point the fingers at with normally solid players looking lost , but the midfield and forwards must take a share of the blame as they failed to get hold of the ball,lost their calm and kept gifting the possession back .

Parkway ended up hanging on for a precarious three points to get the league season off and running .

Newquay 3v2 St Blazey. Att 200+ 45 from Blazey.

After St Blazey made a decent start to the game Newquay scored against the run of play when a good cross was found with a good header. Poor marking for their first. St Blazey hit back with a tap in for the first and a good mover setting up Simms to smash home to make it 1v2 at half time.

The second half started well enough before the Ref gave Newquay a soft pen. No real appeals for anything but the Ref seen some kind of tickle. Their third was a deflected strike which really was a pumch in the knackers.

To top it off with minutes left, St Blazey had a chance to score. The ball played through was perfect and the shot across the keeper beat him, hit the post, rolled along the goal line and the keeper picked it up at the near post.

Some really good football tonight. After saturdays 11v0 win this was going to be the real test. If we play like that, there will be no threat of the bottom places.

Good to see Danny Bance with his heart on his sleeve. Wearing a Blazey scarf on the touch line. Now known as Danny Banchiny!!!

Although we lost tonight, me and other green and blacks were left breathing a sigh of relief that we were able to field a competitive side and there genuinely wasn't much between the two teams.

The Newquay pasty was fantastic - I was surprised to see so many left at the end of half time.

One slight criticism - children 14 and over have to pay adult rate to get in?? This is hardly an incentive to get young people involved in your club.

Thanks to the Newquay supporters for being so good-natured tonight.

Enjoyable evening; I am optimistic that we might be good enough to avoid another basement battle this year.

Not sure of the official attendance but looked to be 250+ @ Mount Wise Stadium. Peppermints created a superb opener, Farrant sending a deep cross into Weldhen to head home. Blazey were then gifted two goals, Peppermints unable to clear the ball out of the area led to the visitors pouncing and punishing the defence.

Tom Daley then broke into the Blazey area, the awful ref awarding Newquay a penalty which had some home fans apologising to the visitors in the main stand. Brook slamming the ball home, Oaten sending his 'keeper some dodgy info. Some good natured banter as the fans renewed rivalries, nice to see old faces again.

Newquay grabbing the winner with a deflected shot, Weldhen claiming the last touch. Nail biting stuff towards the end, time stood still for Newquay fans, a Blazey tame shot across goal hit the post and rolled back across for Trudge to collect. If the entertainment value is kept up (and the wins), then the crowds will keep coming back, not to sure of the standard of the Prem yet, will take a few more games to see what's what, been away from these old rivals for too long.
