Penzance Reserves 0-2 Penryn Athletic Reserves

Penzance were brought down to earth on Saturday by a strong Penryn outfit who got away with all 3 points from a wet and windy Penlee Park.

After draws against Hayle and Falmouth and away wins against Ludgvan and Holman SC, most people expected the Magpies to turn over the lads from Kernick Road especially if looking at league positions with Penzance fourth and Penryn seventeenth before the match. Penryn came into the match on a run of four defeats and only one win in their last seven but they belied their league position.

Penryn have the first chance of the match working their way into the box, get down to the goaline, and lay the ball back but volley over the top of the bar. They break again on their left but shoot just wide.

Penzance miss with a Bradley Wills header from a Gary Matthews cross from the right but that’s about all Penzance manage in the first 15 minutes.

Then just after the quarter hour Penryn take the lead. Penzance lose the ball in the tackle on the half-way line, a quick punt forward to the runner inside the box, a shot that rebounds off the keeper, and 16year old 1st teamer Darren Edwards knocks in a low shot from 10yds out. 0-1, 17mins.

Penzance now go up a gear to try to equalise but can’t deal with the Penryn offside trap, Tom Patrick runs through but put the ball wide of the post. Dan Magee shoots over from 25yds. Penzance’s Tom Withecombe gets booked for dissent.

A long ball from the back sees Penzance break down the left, it’s knocked in but Ross Brooks, the Penryn keeper punches it clear. Penzance’s Gary Matthews is booked for dissent.

Then the Penryn keeper makes a great save and clearance from a Penzance break. Wade Brown attacks down the left, crosses to the back post where Patrick heads it from 6yds. The keeper makes a flying dive to push the ball onto the post then kicks the rebound round the post for a corner whilst lying on the ground.

Penryn have the last chance of the first half when they break down the left, cross but the shot is grabbed by the keeper.

H-T

The second half starts with Penzance launching a series of attacks down the wings. A Penzance corner on the right is punched clear, then the shot in is cleared off the line. A Patrick shot from a cross from the right is also cleared off the line.

Both teams make a substitution.

Then it Craig Nicholls turn in the Penzance goal to make a great diving save from a curling shot from the left. A few tempers are starting to get frayed and one or two tackles are starting to be crunchers.

Tom Hosking of Penzance goes off injured and is replaced. Penzance bring on their last sub and Penryn make one as well. Penzance are desperately firing long balls forward but Penryn soak up the pressure.

Then in the last few minutes Penzance’s heads drop and Penryn find that they are given a lot more space. They try a shot from 40yds which sails over the bar. Then as everyone is thinking of a hot shower and after match pint Penryn break through the middle and Sean Johnson (another 1st teamer) boots the ball past the keeper. 0-2, 90mins.

After 6mins of injury time the ref calls a halt to proceedings.

Penzance Man of the Match. A hard decision as no-one really shone but if we must it goes to Darren Holsey. Defended well in the first half and even went over the half-way line during open play in the second half.

Penzance - Craig Nicholls, Tom Hosking, Darren Holsey, Charlie Penny, Bradley Wills, Liam Devine, Dan Magee, Gary Matthews, Tom Patrick, Tom Withecombe, Wade Brown

Subs – Ross Badcock (Withecombe 57), Wayne Edwards (Hosking 71), Sam Long (Patrick 81), James Street

Corner Count – Penzance 7-3 Penryn (2-1 1st half)

Crowd – a disappointing 59 including roughly 15 from Penryn

I didn't put in that the Penryn manager plus half the players appealed to the ref every time one of their players went down or if the ball hit a Pz player, claiming hand-ball. Ref must have been totally fed up with the constant nagging at him.

Guest football mad

Penzance are the worst team for bringing in First teamers, I suppose they would have liked to have brought some in Saturday if they were not signed on else where :D:D:D:D

From what I hear Penryn played well Saturday and deserved the points and I would be very disappointed reading that report of yours if I were associated with Penryn, a tad dis respectful in my view, Penryn came to the magpies, they saw they conquered . Your team will be up there or there abouts end of the season dont worry !
