Insley goal condemns Falmouth Town to defeat against Camelford
It might be a bit much to expect fireworks from two sides struggling at the wrong end of the peninsula league's premier division, but with Camelford lacking a win in six, and Falmouth Town showing real signs of improvement under John Dent, what supporters at Bickland Park didn't expect was a damp squib.
But for the most part that's what they got.
Only Josh Insley's goal on 70 minutes separated to the two sides, the midfielder rising unchallenged at the back post to nod in Andy Boxall's free kick with the Falmouth defence caught ball-watching.
Up until then it had been pretty tepid stuff. Gone was the fluidity and attacking verve Town had shown against Bodmin midweek. Neither keeper was forced into a meaningful save as both sets of defenders dominated.
In the first half Andy Westgarth came close to latching on to a Dominic Batchelor through ball which would have seen him in on goal, but the striker dallied and Camelford got back to clear.
At the other end Billy Hopcroft's mazy run into the box resulted in him playing a square ball for Insley, but Joe Cooper slid in to make a last-gasp block.
In-between Ed Timmons fizzed a couple of dangerous looking crosses into the Camelford box, but failed to find a Falmouth head, or boot.
Camelford improved in the second half, but still neither side could muster a decent shot on goal.
Then in the 70th minute Reg Hambly's side took the lead from an innocuous set piece, a looping ball inot the box ending with Insley heading past Town keeper Danny Burrows at the back post.
Second half sub James Macnary came close to doubling Camelford's lead from an almost identical set piece late on, but his header was well stopped by Burrows as Falmouth belatedly began to dominate.
With the clock ticking down Town pushed hard for an equaliser, but despite forcing Camelford into their own half during a frantic final ten minutes, it was the Camels who hung on to end their six game winless streak and take all three points.
