Dobwalls 1 Penryn Athletic 3
Penryn Athletic marked the club's 50th anniversary with a comprehensive victory over Dobwalls at Lantoom Park.
With kick off moved forward to 2.30pm due to the planned celebrations at Kernick Road later in the evening, Penryn started as though they were keen to get the game put to bed early.
But it took Penryn until just before the break to open the scoring, Sean Johnston hammering a powerful drive into the back of the net.
After the break Penryn continued to dominate, but found Dobwalls keeper Josh Gilbert in fine form.
Athletic seemed certain to score a second, but they were forced to wait until the 70th minute before doing so.
Kevin Lawrence whipped a cross into the Dobwalls box, and left back Russell May was there to slide the ball in from close range.
And it was May who pulled Penryn further ahead when his mazy run saw him slip past two Dobwalls defenders before burying a low drive into the bottom corner.
The home side registered a consolation goal with just under a quarter of an hour to play when Lawrence handled in the box and Martyn Hake stepped up to score from the spot.
But it was too little too late for Dobwalls, with Penryn seeing out the game to deliver the perfect anniversary present.
