Godolphin held as star man Jamie Lowry sees red
Godolphin Atlantic were made to pay for squandering second half chances as they were held to a 1-1 draw by second-placed Ivybridge Town in the Carlsberg South West Peninsula League at Godolphin Way this afternoon.
The G Men, going into the game fifth in the premier division, were given a 32nd minute lead by Phil Lowry and held onto it until eight minutes from time when Jordan Walton equalised with a superb finish from a counter-attack.
Only minutes before that, Godolphin had a golden opportunity to secure the points but Jamie Lowry opted to square the ball towards his brother Phil rather than score himself and the danger was cleared.
A fine match was spoilt in the first minute of injury time when Jamie Lowry was shown a straight red card for appearing to grab Ivybridge substitute Chris Maskell around the neck in a scuffle on the ground which led to a mass brawl.

Both sets of players became involved and when the dust settled, referee Steve Rothwell sent off Lowry for the retaliation offence, before showing yellow cards to Ivybridge players Andrew Neal and Matt Scragg.
Elsewhere in the premier division, the crisis at Liskeard Athletic deepened after a 4-0 defeat at Launceston while Newquay were 3-0 winners over bottom of the table Cullompton at Mount Wise.
Falmouth Town, such impressive midweek winners at Liskeard, took a couple of steps backwards today with a 2-1 defeat at Elburton Villa.
