Penryn Athletic 1 Perranporth 1 REPORT
Penryn Athletic had to settle for a single point after slugging it out with Perranporth at Kernick Road, but as far as 50th anniversary presents go they won't be too disappointed. In truth it could have gone either way.
Perranporth started brightly, with Paul Robertson fizzing a series of crosses into the Penryn box which failed to find the head or feet of strike partner Ed Wilton.
But with the league's top scorer Kayne Trevaskis back in the side after missing last week's cup tie against Porthleven, Penryn were always dangerous going forward.
Defender Sam Mousilides got across to cover, but his clearance cannoned off the Penryn striker's shin and crept inside Perranporth keeper Andy Butcher's post.
The goal marked the start of a spell of pressure for Penryn, who saw shots from Greg Hobbs and Tyler Cooke drift just wide.
But just before the break, against the run of play, Perranporth were level when Penryn defender Kirk Davies misjudged a backwards header, and the ball looped high over keeper Chris Symons and into the back of the net.
After the break both sides spurned chances to claim all three points.
Wilton and Robertson forced two superb saves out of Symons, but it was Penryn who finished the stronger of the two teams, bombarding the Perranporth goal in the final ten minutes but failing to find a way through a wall of blue shirts.
One all it stayed, and on balance that was just about right.
