Jeff's Telling Posted April 18, 2017 Report Share Posted April 18, 2017 Callington Town 2-1 Torpoint Athletic A second consecutive win for Town, with Ollie Kennedy following up his hat trick against Launceston on Good Friday with a late winner against Torpoint. Callington started the better of the two teams, but after about 20-25 minutes Torpoint started to come much more into the game, which for an end of season game had been entertaining and good value. Just before half time Keiron Prescott was brought down in the penalty area as he shielded the ball and turned - an obvious penalty and very clear decision for the referee.Harry Southcott smacked the ball straight down the middle of the goal to give Town a half time lead. The second half was a more scrappy affair, and with 30 minutes remaining Town had defender Matt Thackeray red carded. Torpoint pushed forward more as they sought to something from the game, and they equalised from a corner on 68 minutes when John McCreery was left completely unmarked at the far post with a simple header to equalise. Torpoint sensed the momentum was with them, but their defence looked uncomfortable against the strong running Kelvin Fyneboy, and so it proved just before the end when from his run Ollie Kennedy was on hand to roll the ball under the Torpoint keeper.
