FALMOUTH had to settle for a draw on the opening weekend of the South West Peninsula League season in an entertaining 3-3 draw at home to Newquay.

In a free flowing game, both sides hunted for goals early on but it was the hosts who went ahead in the 20th minute through ex-Newquay striker Rob Wearne as he headed home from Harry Evan's cross.

This sparked a mad 18 minute spell of football which saw the score reach 3-2 at half time.

Wearne added a second in the 22nd minute before Matt Drummond pulled one back for the visitors four minutes later, reacting fastest to Dan Peters' save from Oli Dart's curling shot.

Then on the half hour Mark, Jake Bray-Evans equalised as his shot from 25 yards out was deflected past a helpless Peters.

However, it was Town who went in at half time ahead as Kayne Trevaskis won a sliding battle with Newquay goalkeeper Tom Vercoe to poke the ball home seven minutes before the break.

The second half was not as fast paced, but still had plenty to admire.

The only goal in this 45 minutes fell to Bray-Evans after a defensive mix up from a corner, leaving him space to fire home on the edge of the box.

Both sides looked for a winner and Elliot Simcox came closest in the second minute of injury time as his volley crashed onto the crossbar.
