BIG WIN FOR TRURO:
Truro Ladies 9 Plym Valley II 0
Truro were keen to get another three points under their belt in their third Trelawney League Division One game of the season, and cruised to victory and are now second in the league with a game in hand and face Duchy this weekend.
However, carrying on with recent good form, Truro got off to a great start with Alexa Blake scoring the first goal of the game on five minutes. Truro took control and allowed the goal fury to commence.
Some great midfield play from Kelly Jefferies, Michelle Hares and debutant Karen Jarvill allowed Truro to dominate possession during the first half, and the goals came flooding in. Jefferies and Dany Fry both converted from short corners whilst Claire Horsley, playing her last game for Truro before moving back to Australia, converted after a shot deflected off the 'keepers pads, allowing Horsley to calmly flick the ball into the back of the net.
The fifth goal of the half came from Tatum Godwin, a great team goal which saw Godwin's shot from the penalty spot allow the Truro girls to go into half time with a 5-0 lead.
A couple of changes at half time saw Clara Husbands, Billie Wood and Blythe Stedman all showing remarkable effort to help the girls in green keep a clean sheet.
Truro were awarded another short corner through great persistence from Lauren Susnjara which allowed Blake to deflect Fry's shot into the goal.
Blake scored a further two goals through some great team movements, the first from Chantel Richards and Nicola Palfrey who worked tirelessly throughout the game.
The last goal came from captain Jefferies who made a fantastic solo run into the D to beat the approaching keeper.
MoM: Alexa Blake.
Truro: Amie Tall, Chantel Richards, Paula Cockle, Nicola Palfrey, Karen Jarvill, Michelle Hares, Kelly Jefferies, Lauren Susnjara, Alexa Blake, Tatum Godwin, Claire Horsley, Billie Wood, Clara Husbands and Blythe Stedman.
Plymouth Uni 3 Truro Ladies II 0
With only eight players Truro did well in this Trelawney Two game to lose just 3-0.
They trailed 1-0 at half time and all players were looking very tired, but a motivating talk from coach Carl Cadwell left the team in high spirits as they began the second half.
But the strain of three players down and two injuries started to show in the final 10 minutes of the game saw Plymouth run out 3-0 winners. Truro played extremely well and left with their tired heads held high.
Man of the Match: Joanna Lillie
Plymouth Marjons D 0 Truro B 2
After a poor start, Truro B played well to realise a good win in South West One with Seb Firth and Stu Hares their scorers.
Another poor start by Truro allowed Marjons to have too much possession and honours were probably even at half time, 0-0.
Fifteen minutes into the second half, Truro managed to put pressure on the Marjons defence and Seb Firth swept up the ball off the keeper's pads to score from a reverse chip. Marjons had a few shots and keeper Sam Coia made one excellent save to keep them out.
Truro maintained the pressure with a two or three scoring opportunities, however, it was only after the fifth penalty corner where captain Stu Hares scooped the keeper to score Truro's second.
Man of the Match: Shared between James Costen, Seb Firth, Sam Dunstan and Tizz Curtis.
Team: Sam Coia, Ian Woods, Stu Hares(c) , Dave Churchard, Matt Woods, Matt Kane, Nigel Barker, James Costen, Sam Dunstan, Seb Firth, Tom Carne, Tizz Curtis.
CHACEWATER GO TOP:
Perranporth 1 Chacewater 3
With the previous leaders Titans only drawing, Chacewater moved to the top of Trelawny League Division One as a result of this hard earned but deserved win at a sunny Perranporth on Saturday.
Perranporth started the game well and Chacewater did well to contain them before Craig Hitchens set his brother Travis through to beat John Preece with a low shot after 12 minutes.
Perranporth hit back but the visiting defence soaked up the pressure in front of a confident Russell Grice until a corner to the far post was deflected in by Ben Reddock in the 28th minute.
The game swung from end to end for the rest of the half with full backs Jake Merrifield, promoted from the reserves, and John Dunstan supporting the central midfield of Martin Lloyd and Steve Kellow very well.
Chacewater dominated large sections of the second half and Josh Byrd broke from his own half down the left to outpace the home defence before applying a confident finish in the 55th minute.
Further goalscoring chances came for Brendan and Craig Hitchens,Steve Kellow,John Dunstan and Josh Byrd who struck the upright.Brendan Hitchens created space and unselfishly crossed for brother Craig to tap in after 80 minutes.
Chacewater travel to Trevenson on Saturday for a League Cup tie (2pm).
Chacewater Res 6 Troon Res 1
Chacewater moved into the next round of the Russell Hall Cup following a comprehensive defeat of sporting opponents Troon in a game well officiated by Arthur Parsons.
Despite getting off to a rather sluggish start,Chacewater took the lead when Lewis Bridger scored with a header from a right wing cross.Troon quickly equalised before Dave Cilia and Ian Bromwell combined and when the latter's shot was saved, Chris Pridham was on hand to tuck away the rebound.Ian Bromwell set up Dave Cilia to score a third just before the break.
Ian Bromwell took his match tally to four goals in the second half, including one from the penalty spot.
Full backs Josh Symons and Justin Bennetts were outstanding with the latter very unlucky not to score after a long solo run and shot which rebounded from the crossbar, a fate which also befell substitute Dave Hitchens with a curling effort.
The reserves host Redruth Athletic on Saturday (2.30pm)
Trispen 3 Mullion Res 1
Trispen returned to Trelawny Division 2 league action seeking to keep the pressure up on league leaders Hayle.
Despite having the better of the early possession chances were few a far between and frustration crept in.
It wasn't until the 28th minute that the game sprung to life. Following a slick interchange between Sam Lawrence, Mark Boaden and the ball fell to Jonny Ridd who lashed the ball into the bottom corner to settle any early Trispen nerves.
It got better two minutes later when a free kick was awarded on the edge of the penalty area following a foul on Mike Cruse. Ridd grabbed the ball from Cruse and found the net again with the help of a slight deflection.
Mullion responded well and kept the game alive with a fine volleyed goal following a near post corner that left the Trispen defence flat-footed making it 2-1 at the interval.
Trispen continued to have the better of the possession and keeper Shane Tangye was rarely troubled. Despite losing defender Michael Taylor to an ankle injury following a rash tackle, the game was wrapped up in the 69th minute when Mike Cruse crunched a left footed pile driver past the hapless Mullion goalkeeper.
The Trispen match ball was kindly sponsored by Standen Opticians (Truro).
Ludgvan 9 St Erme 0
StErme travelled to high flying Ludgvan and suffered their fifth straight defeat in a row after being soundly beaten.
They have now slipped into the bottom four of the Trelawney League Division 5 table and were cursed once again when they lost their fifth keeper of the season Ryan Penhallurick after just 15 minutes through injury and he was quickly followed into the changing room by promising young defender George Harrison five minutes later.
Manager Andy Johns reshuffled his already depleted line up but the strong hosts scored goals at regular intervals to ease to victory.
The Saints did manage to create a few chances and one positive that came out of the game was the performance of 16-year old substitute Nathan Brown who turned in a promising display after his early introduction off the bench.
TITANS MARCH ON:
Truro Titans 87 Saltash 2nd XV 17
The Titans continued their highly impressive league form in a very one sided encounter.
