Brokenshire, Hobbs (2), Colwell, Luxton, Webb (OG), Matthews, Doddridge, Carter
Prior to the game, Town manager Les Gilbert said it was a 'miracle' Falmouth had managed to field a team at all, after recent player departures and cup-tied signings meant the home side were unable to name any substitutes.
But even a full strength Falmouth would have struggled against what was a ruthlessly efficient Bodmin town outfit.
Ollie Brokenshire opened the scoring in the fifth minute with an acrobatic volley, followed by a Glyn Hobbs effort that squeezed past Jason Chapman in the Falmouth goal a little over ten minutes later.
Bodmin's Steve Colwell scored the game of the match on 27 minutes after his curled effort from outside the box sailed past Chapman, before Hobbs notched up a scrappy fourth for Bodmin just before the break.
Things didn't get any better for the home side after the restart, and goals from Sam Matthews, Chris Luxton, Luke Doddridge and Adam Carter, along with an unfortunate own goal by Falmouth's Jamie Webb, sealed victory for the cup holders.
Les Gilbert and Robbie Stephens' attention now turns to the Peninsual League premier division, where Falmouth lie 15th on 17 points.
