Recommended Posts

Marazion Blues 2-2 Penzance Reserves

This match marked the first run-out of Robert Flack's Penzance Reserves.

It was a game of few chance with both teams working hard in mid-field but being let down by poor finishing or a misplaced through ball. Each side scored their 2 goals in quick succession, Marazion in the first half and Penzance in the 2nd and at one time it looked like an upset was on the cards as the Blues were dominating the Magpies.

The game started quietly and for the first quarter of an hour both sides were fairly evenly matched with Penzance dealing with the Marazion through ball and Penzance trying to break down the wings. Then on 16mins Penzance get a corner. A long ball sees James Street rise at the back of the box to head just wide. Marazion take a quick goal kick and burst down the Penzance right. James Street gets there in front of the Marazion striker and attempts a back pass to the advancing Damien Norman in the Penzance goal. The ball slowly rolls past the keeper and Adam Berry runs in and taps the ball in from 1yd out. 1-0 to the Blues on 17mins.

Penzance kick off and immediatly give away a free kick 25yds out in central mid-field. Matt Gendall steps up and blasts it wide of the keeper to put the Blues 2-0 up in the 19th minute.

The 1st half peters out then with Penzance trying to float the ball into the middle but the keeper dealt with each high ball.


The Magpies came out fighting in the 2nd half pushing Marazion back into their own half and also breaking down their right. They still looked light-weight up front but then Marazion seemed to have lost their edge as well.

Penzance brought on Ashley Gray up-front and within minutes it paid dividends. On 71mins good work down the Marazion right sees a cross to Ashley who plants a low cross goal shot into the net past the advancing keeper who had called for his players to leave it. 69mins 2-1.

2mins later Penzance are on level terms. Again good work down the right by Ross Badcock followed by a crossed ball through the middle sees Ashley shoot from 15yds past the advancing keeper. 71mins 2-2.

A minute later Ashley got through the middle again but tried to curl a shot round the keeper but the ball bounced off the upright.

The game quietened down after that with Penzance applying most of the pressure but Marazion stayed firm till the final whistle.

Crowd roughly 30.
