Bad day at the office for the boys. Good start much the better side opening 20 mins could have had at least 3 goals but only 1 found the net

Credit to North Petherwin much the better and hungrier side overall who scored some good goals and moved the ball well and used their physicality very well against a young small side 

Lots to learn for our young side we go again

It's been a while but GSM Utd finally got their 21/22 Duchy League Div 1 West season underway with a 4-1 win over St Eval on a beautiful, sunny day in St Mawes.
After an even start, GSM took the lead after 13 mins, when Charlie Andrew was barged in the back inside the area and a penalty was awarded. Charlie pick himself up and calmly sent the keeper the wrong way and rolled the ball in to the bottom left corner.
GSM created a number of chances without increasing their lead. Cody Tregunna striking the bar twice within 30 seconds with shots from outside the area, the first helped on to the bar by a fingertip save the keeper. Ben Colquhoun made a couple of well timed runs in behind the defence but put his shots just wide of the target.
GSM went in to the break with a slender 1-0 lead and all to play for.
Second half and playing up the hill, GSM doubled their lead shortly after the restart when Jordan Rodgers hit a beautifully placed right foot shot for distance into the top corner with the St Eval keeper grasping at thin air.
Moments later, Stephen Floyd Norris nipped in to break up a St Eval attack on the halfway line and released Ben Colquhoun, who rode the challenge of the last defender and finished to take GSM 3-0 ahead.
GSM almost went 4 up shortly after when Ben Colquhoun found himself one on one with the St Eval keeper but put his shot straight at the keeper, who stayed big and saved well.
Despite being 3 goals behind, St Eval enjoyed their best moments of the game with a couple of long range shots going just wide before their #10 forced a good save from Caius Sharpe in the GSM goal. Shortly after, a long ball over the top fell to St Eval #7 who managed to beat the advancing GSM keeper to the ball but his goal bound shot was bundled away for a corner by the Angus Joce. From the corner another St Eval shot that didn't trouble the GSM keeper.
75 mins and finally St Eval got a reward for their endeavour as they won the ball deep in the GSM half and released their #7, who slotted the ball calmly beyond the advancing Caius Sharpe in the GSM goal.
GSM upper their game and pushed forward with Charlie Andrew nearly increasing the lead when put through but the covering defender managing to get in a last ditch tackle to put the ball out for a corner. From the resulting corner the ball was played deep, Charlie Andrew retrieved the ball before delivering a ball to the far post where Stephen Floyd Norris got a touch to divert the ball goalward, forcing a good save from the St Eval keeper.
GSM continued to push forward and finally put the game to bed with a fourth goal. A corner was played in and the ball dropped in the 6 yard box , Cody Tregunna reacted quickest to poke the ball home to mark his first ever game in junior football, at the age of 16, with a goal. GSM almost added a fifth in injury time when Cody Tregunna flicked on a long ball to set Ben Colquhoun through on goal but the covering defender forced him across goal before Ben put his left foot shot just wide.
MOM - Jordan Rogers
Thanks to the ref and his assistance. Good luck to St Eval for the rest of the season

Lanivet Inn 2-3 St Columb Major

A first visit for me to the nearly new facilties at Lanivet, a great grass bank behind the far goal giving excellent viewing opportunities.

Lanivet will probably feel hard done by after ending empty-handed, they were the better side for the majority of the first half and by 90' a draw would have been a fair result.

St Columb were not to be denied, a goal 4 minutes into stoppage time (the majority of which was for a drinks break) saw them took all 3 points.

The Saints goals were worthy of mention, two of the were close-range overhead kicks, and the other was a bullet free kick that despite the keeper getting a decent hand to it still ended up in the net.

Both of these teams look likely to be in the mix in the Division One West race.
