8 goals at Kimberley

Recommended Posts

lots of goals!!!!! to be fair, bodmin better side 1st half, saltash took the lead through a dodgy penalty, but that made bodmin come to life and they came back with 3 goals. saltash looked very poor at the back and one ball was causing them all sorts of problems. it looked like they struggled in a 3-5-2 formation. 2nd half began with bodmin scoring an early goal before saltash got one back through another long ball!!! saltash were now on top and putting bodmin under pressure but bodmin hit them on the break to go 5-2 up before a late saltash goal made it 5-3. all in all a deserved win for bodmin against a poor saltash side, but bodmin didnt look as solid as normal. will be an interesting season!! plenty of opposing managers having a look including roger fice of parkway and john clarkson of liskeard - who on the subject seem to have totally change their side this year......cant understand why with the potential they had?? my tip is parkway to win the league.

SALTASH's early season optimism is beginning to evaporate after last night's defeat at Kimberley Stadium left the hosts still searching for their first league victory of the season.

Only Holsworthy, who have lost all three of their games, separate Saltash from bottom spot, but at least they can have a break from the league this Saturday when the FA Cup comes to Kimberley.

The scoreline last night suggests a close encounter but that was not the case. Bodmin dominated the second half and it was only Ashes'fighting spirit which prevented the visitors from running away with it.

Both teams went into the game on the back of a poor result, but it was the visitors who gave the appearance of a side who had the desire to set the record straight.

Steve Ovens had already powered a 12-yard header just wide of Steve Vaux's goal before the Ashes keeper managed to push Leigh Underhay's teasing cross around the far post.

It was against the run-of-play when Saltash took a 17th-minute lead.

Glen Palmer went down in the area but it was not until the referee had consulted his assistant that he awarded the penalty from which Palmer sent Gary Penhaligon the wrong way.

The lead lasted less than two minutes as a long ball forward caught the Ashes' defence square for Luke Hodge to run on and lift the ball over the advancing Vaux.

Hodge then headed wide before Saltash hit back with Carl Pender and Palmer both denied by Penhaligon.

Bodmin restored their lead on 34 minutes with Huw Morgan on target, before Ovens followed up on Wayne Hewitt's drive to make it 3-1 at the break.

Disaster struck for the Ashes when Josh Fenwick put through his own goal four minutes after the turnaround.

Substitute Matt Purnell pulled a goal back for the home side 15 minutes from time, but it was not until stoppage time that Danny O'Hagan fired home Bodmin's fifth with Purnell completing the scoring a minute later with a header from six yards.
