Credit to the players for producing an entertaining game at a windswept Clifden Parc. It was blowing a gale diagonally from top left corner flag to bottom right. With Porthleven v St.Austell postponed Mullion benefitted strengthening their side with a few players but it didn’t deter Penryn as they took the lead after 2 minutes and 45 seconds when their wing backs combined as Jake Shaw crossed from the right and Bradley Leivers came in at the far post to hit a volley on the full stretch into the bottom corner. The hosts equalised after 10 minutes when a ball into the box from the left was half cleared to the edge of the area and home skipper Chris Blee smashed a shot into the top corner. Five minutes later it got even better for the hosts when Blee’s strike from 15 yards took a massive deflection and ended up in the bottom corner. To complete a crazy first 20 minutes Leivers strong run from the halfway line ended with him scoring with another deflected shot spinning into the bottom corner from 20 yards despite him being hacked from behind by a midfielder scampering back, great strength and balance to keep his feet from Brad and great advantage from George as always who went back after the goal to yellow card the home hacker. Mullion missed an absolute sitter two minutes after that when the striker slid in and sent the ball over the bar from 3 yards. Another great cross from Shaw saw Leivers denied an hat-trick by home stand in keeper Neil Rollinson who tipped his towering header around the post. He made an even better save on the half hour mark when Jack Rapsey flicked the ball over the giant 6ft 7 Mullion centre half’s head and hit a volley only for Rollinson to pull off a superb reflex save to his left. Three minutes later Blee nipped in to prod past visiting keeper Dan Lord, the effort looked offside for a moment but after consultation between George and Alan the Penryn Lino one of the fairest I’ve seen over the years by the way the goal was given for the impressive Blee to complete a 33 minute first half hat-trick. Rollinson kept out another header on 37 minutes from his own defender under pressure from Leivers. Three minutes into the 2nd half a thunderbolt of a shot from 25 yards smashed against the underside of the bar and down onto the line, or close to it, or over it!? There’s no way George or Alan could have given it from their positions but over or not there’s no doubt it was a cracking strike, sorry I don’t know who it was I was sitting in the car listening to the local and national half time results! The usually immaculate Nick Boase one of my favourite ball playing defenders in the county in my opinion uncharacteristically got caught in possession on the edge of his own area but the shot flashed past the far post. Penryn dominated the last 20 minutes in almost darkness getting the ball wide to Leivers on the left and sub Reggie May on the right and using the ball over the top to the speedy Ryan Reeve and into the feet of Rapsey and they created some decent chances which ended with a deserved equaliser when Leivers low driven cross from the left was turned in at the near post by a home full back trying to clear in the 83rd minute. A minute from time Harry Roberts free kick from wide was turned away by Rollinson once again for a corner and with the 90 minutes up George blew his whistle while the players could still find their way off the pitch with what little light was left!!! Lucky we only had a 10 minute half time 👍 Fair result I think, Mullion deserved their half time lead and Penryn were the better side second half going down the slope with he wind, credit to the players for a decent game in horrible conditions for football.
