St Minver P-P St Columb Major 

Sadly St Columb unable to raise a side due to injuries and a few who are not committed enough (who are sadly killing the club). 😔 

Real shame, got to say the way you carried yourself last weekend was really good for your side.

What I did was silly, don’t deny it. But when you are playing with pulled knee ligaments from the game before because no1 else could be arsed to turn up, no wonder I was in a mood. But the way you lot were running on the pitch celebrating in our faces was absolutely pathetic 😂 we are a struggling side and you were like 10-0 up at the time, pretty classless.

Torpoint Athletic 4 - 2 Polperro

Torpoint goal scorers: Westall x2, ManuelJ, Easterbrook.

Been a few days since the game now so probably hazy on some detail and chances. But if I could forget the first 60mins of our match I would because we were absolutely dreadful. Though the impetus was ours, we couldn't string 3 passes together. Polperro had a deeper backline and let us have it in spells, but when we couldn't trap a bag of cement they should have pressured us a little more. Passes to feet were wayward or miscontrolled, and any more direct route wasn't looked after either. Sam Lane and Co were more than happy to clear up our mess and punt the ball downfield, which caused us issues as Panchbhaya and the other forward were willing to chase lost causes. We did take the lead around 30mins in, with a complete fluke too. Manuel received the ball infield from the right, and his intention of finding Easterbrook towards the left hand side of the box the ball flew towards goal and clipped the crossbar on the way in. It looked like a worldy and completely undeserved. Polperro's counter brought it back level as it should have been a few mins before halftime with a nice break down the left hand side was squared into the box and tucked away. 1-1 HT.

The honest HT break didn't have an immediate reaction and though the lads knew we weren't performing, it took us a while to click still. The reassuring thing was we all knew what we were capable of. But from the restart, though we showed glimpses of improvement, it was Polperro who took the lead. Another attack born from our own breakdown resulted in a long ball between our centre halves quite high up the pitch in a race with Panchbhaya, who tucked away with a good finish. I had to admit their defensive work had earned the break. We equalised not long after the hour mark, with Jimi Taylor playing a lofted yet hopeful ball into a good area over the right centre half who on the turn had to deal with Westall, who showed strength to shield him off and drive into the box, and rifled the ball inside the far post from an angle. The introduction of Cam Ross had an immediate effect and his relentless nature coupled with Westall lead the team to victory. By this point we were finding passes to feet, and the right hand side of the introduced Power and Ross gave us a huge threat. The words I'd use to describe Ross aren't suitable for the forum and Polperro got the brunt of him, including a double nutmeg on two Polperro defenders, racking up at least 3 in his cameo off the bench and 2 assists. The first a simple lay off to Westall in the middle of the park, who took the last part of the game by the scruff of the neck, powering through multiple tackles to get to the edge of the box, showed nice feet to skip through another two before firing past the visiting keeper to take the lead with 10 to play. Completely in the ascendency now we wrapped it up with Ross again the creator, beating his man again down the right and firing a lovely low cross into the back stick for Easterbrook to tap home from close range for 4-2. For 20mins we looked really dangerous but as I said above it shows what we're capable of and they're the standards we want to set. Polperro were hardy and if it wasn't for a superb save from Dicko when faced with a 1v1, it would've been far harder to get the points. With both sides only having 13 players on the day, and Polperro missing top scorer Gwillam, thankfully our subs made a huge difference.

With players returning we now host Launceston on Wednesday with all our Saturday fixtures wrapped up for the season. Weds, Tues and a Weds to go, plus a TBC likely a midweek, we sit 3rd having some results go our way. 2nd-6th is very tight and plenty to play for with 4-6 games to go!
