Foxhole 0 Goonhavern 3

Saturday 19th April 2008

A much improved Goonhavern outfit deservedly won a game in which Foxhole wasted what few opportunities they created and struggled to contain the lively visiting strikers. Capeling, who won countless aerial duels with the normally dominant Rowe, blasted over an early chance while Bromley's finishing moments later was similarly in keeping with a scrappy first half, although the outcome may have been different had Rickard not shot straight at the imposing Woodrow after being released by Nicholls just before the half hour.

The Foxes were no better after the break and nearly fell behind when a Rowe clearance cannoned off Robertson only to roll wide. Although Rickard and Woodley tried their luck from distance, Woodrow was only seriously inconvenienced by May's cross cum shot on the hour which he tipped over, and, with Goonhavern playing some tidy stuff and Blatch prominent, it was no real surprise when Capeling headed Josh Mitchell's right wing cross firmly past debutant Rosevear three minutes later. Mitchell doubled the lead on 68, sweeping home Robertson's corner at the near post; Foxhole's immediate switch to 3-4-3 proved a futile response as Robertson displayed admirable skill before lobbing Rosevear from 25 yards. Substitutes Panter and Morris each saw efforts fly over in injury time, but, in truth, Foxhole were a well-beaten side.

Foxhole (4-4-2): Rob Rosevear 6; Matt May 6, David Grose 6, Mark Rowe 6, Jeff Dillon 6; Adam Bromley 6 (sub. Gary Camps 5), Jason Warne 6, Adam Holland 6 (sub. Colin Morris 5), Tom Woodley 6 (sub. Steve Panter 5); Carl Rickard 6, Liam Nicholls 6.

Goonhavern (3-5-2): Ashley Woodrow; Simon Robinson, Kevin Tonkin, Craig Barclay; Jack Bevan (sub. Gavin Counter), Josh Mitchell (sub. Matt Luff), Ross Maynard, Dean Blatch, Jason Barber; Paul Robertson (sub. Ben Mitchell), Steve Capeling.

Referee: Mr Michael Carter (Camborne) 9.

Yes an accurate assessment of the game Darin....Goonhavern thoroughly deserved the win their secondhalf performance was excellent and made you wonder why they have been struggling all season this apparently being their first win in NINE games and as Foxhole had won six of the last seven was somewhat unpredictable to say the least - however that was part of the problem too many foxes probably thought they were in for a cushy afternoon and are simply not good enough to have that attitude whereas Goonhavern were well up for it and being well used to the windy conditions at Reen Manor more than matched Foxhole for effort and also played some very good football and took their chances well. Interesting also to note that Goonhaverns last two fixtures are Porthleven and Wadebridge who are vying for the league title.

Mr Dillons final comment is in interesting one as we do have both Wadebridge & Porthleven to play in our final games. I'm not suggesting that we will win either of these games but if we do have the same side that won at foxhole over the weekend then we will at least be competitive and possibly spring a surprise result to affect the Championship run in.
