Cornwall Senior Cup, third round

Penzance 0, Falmouth Town 2

Falmouth struck twice in the last five minutes at Penlee Park to secure their place in the Senior Cup quarter-finals.

Persistent rain throughout the afternoon turned an already saturated playing surface into a quagmire, but both sides deserve great credit for serving up an entertaining game, albeit in conditions which by the end were bordering on the farcical.

The Magpies certainly gave every bit as good as they got against their higher division opponents and had their chances in an evenly contested game, during which both goalkeepers, Craig Nicholls of Penzance and Nathan Murphy for the visitors produced some outstanding saves, especially when taking into account the conditions.

As it was though, James Street's unfortunate own goal, when the ball found its way in off his shoulder from a corner - and a superb injury time strike from Andy Bowker ensured Falmouth's safe progression into the next round.

A quagmire, eh, Black & White? Was similar at Blaise Park . . .

St Blazey 3, Mousehole 1

Credit to referee Steve Annis for giving the game the thumbs up, and congratulations to the groundsman for his unstinting work in getting the pitch fit. The saturated surface played well for the first hour - the last 30 minutes was difficult, but the teams played in a terrific spirit throughout.

The tie was effectively all over inside 15 minutes as Blazey raced into a 3-0 lead with goals by Will Tinsley, a Barrie Prowse og, and Mike Body.

But Mousehole refused to buckle and played their full part in an entertaining match which could have produced many more goals.

Mousehole finally got the consolation they deserved with virtually the last kick of the game, through Gerens James.

Very honest and fair report Rubber Soul,it was very difficult playing conditions and credit to Mousehole who went to St Blazey to play passing football and were rewarded with a well worked goal in the end.

St Blazey deserved their win though. ;0) :clapper:
