HELSTON ATHLETIC 1
PENRYN ATHLETIC 2
Ollie Moody's stunning goal two minutes from time secured a last gasp 2-1 win for Penryn Athletic against Helston in their Bank Holiday Monday clash at Kellaway Parc.
For the second time in as many days Penryn left it late, but with hat-trick hero Kayne Trevaskis absent, it was left to midfielder Ollie Moody to step up and fire in a 30 yard thunderbolt two minutes from time to snatch victory.
Helston will feel unlucky to have come away without at least a point after taking the lead thanks to Hugh Howlett's scrappy close-range effort in the 65th minute.
Mark Goldsworthy and Charlie Young saw further shots saved by Penryn keeper Chris Symons, and going into the break the Blues looked in control.
But in the second half Penryn were much improved, though they had to wait until the 86th minute before equalising.
Second half substitute Luke Brabyn's pace allowed him to chase down Moody's ball over the top of the Helston defence, and he rose with Howlett and Blues keeper Martyn Webster to challenge for it.
From the coming together of players the ball bounced over Webster and into the back of the net, much to the delight of the travelling Penryn supporters.
But if the equaliser had them smiling, two minutes from time they were in raptures when a partially-cleared corner saw the ball drop to Moody outside the box, and his rocket of a volley cannoned off the underside of the bar and spun in.
