Penryn Athletic 0 Porthleven 2 - REPORT
Penryn Athletic dominated possession and hit the woodwork three times, but it was Porthleven's youngsters who booked their place in the next round of the Throgmorton Cup with whats was, in the end, a well deserved 2-0 win at Kernick Road.
The Fisherman defended well and took the chances Penryn offered them, unlike the home side who missed the absent Kayne Trevaksis.
Penryn started with real purpose, pressing Porthleven back into their own half and dominating possession.
Greg Hobbs hit the upright in the fifth minute, and Ollie Moody's curled effort from the edge of the box grazed the outside of the post with Dennis Annear beaten.
Penryn were queuing up to take shots, but in the eighth minute, with their first attack of the game, Porthleven took the lead.
A quick break down the left saw Jordan Annear slip a short pass to Freddie Williams on the edge of the box, and his low drive was deflected past Chris Symons in the Penryn goal.
Penryn had Symons to thank on the half hour mark when he made two superb stops to keep out Chris Wormington. The first from a close range effort inside the six yard box, and the second to claw out Wormington's powerful header.
But the Penryn keeper was at fault for Port's second when he brought Sam Hawkins down just inside the box.
Referee Derek Fox pointed to the spot, and up stepped Tom Annear to drill his penalty into the bottom corner.
After the break Penryn hit the post for the third time.
Kirk Davies's superb cross field pass found the feet of new signing Kevin Lawrence, who instantly controlled the ball before rifling a low drive at goal that cannoned back off the base of the upright.
But Ollie Moody had perhaps Penryn's best chance to get back into the game when he was put through on goal, but veteran keeper Annear made an excellent one-handed stop to deny him.
When Port needed to defend they were strong in the tackle. Jed McCardie's last-gasp sliding interception on Lawrence inside the box when he only had Annear to beat just about summed up Penryn's afternoon.
Penryn's frustration told in the final few minutes, and as they pushed forward they were almost made to pay for the gaps they left behind when Hawkins latched on to a long clearance and stole a yard on Ben Oliver, but whipped his shot into the side netting.
Porthleven go on to face Helston Athletic's conquerors Mousehole in the next round.
