Falmouth United U10s 1 Culdrose Lynx U10s 2

The Culdrose Lynx U10 Football team travelled to Falmouth on Sunday and came away with a well deserved victory. The match started with both teams in high sprits and goalmouth action at both ends of the pitch.

Remarkably the score remained 0-0 at half-time, but it was the Lynx who got the first goal when Nathan Holmes fired the ball into the net from a corner kick.

Falmouth fought back and were able to level the score 15 minutes later.

Both goalkeepers played superbly to keep their team in the game, however with minutes remaining it was the Lynx who broke through with a superbly taken goal from Jake Hunkin.

Lynx Manager Matt James and his coaches said they were thrilled with their team's performance adding that it was only what the boys deserved after working so hard during their training sessions each week.

The Lynx travel to Carharrack for their final match of the season in two weeks time where they hope to continue with their winning streak.

The Lynx team also welcomed new player Joshua Blunden to their team on Sunday.

Illogan U13s 1 Culdrose Hawks U13s 2

Culdrose Hawks U13s travelled to Illogan on Sunday in search of victory against a team who narrowly stole the points from them in the reverse fixture before Christmas.

Happily for the Hawks they did just that, with two superbly taken goals from Joshua Hughes, the first coming in the opening minutes of the game when he broke through the Illogan defence firing the ball past the goalkeeper.

Illogan fought back during second half and levelled the score making the game 1-1 until the dying moments of the match when Joshua struck again with a perfectly timed volley from just over the half way line giving the Illogan keeper no chance of saving it.

Hawks' manager Johnny Bray was delighted with his side's performance saying nobody could be singled out as everyone of his team played brilliantly. Showing skill and determination from start to finish the Hawks really wanted this win today and thoroughly deserved the three points.
