Falmouth Town manager Andrew Westgarth felt his side 'were in total control' as they reached the quarter-finals of the Walter C Parson League Cup on Saturday.

Two goals from each of David Broglino and Luke Barner secured a 4-2 win for Town at home to South West Peninsula League Premier East side Torridgeside, who scored through Tyler Evans-Loude and Nick Glover.

The win sealed Town's place in the last eight for the third consecutive season, and the 2018 winners will now go on to face St Blazey on Tuesday, February 25.

"The most important thing was getting through," Westgarth said. "It's not ideal knowing who you're going to play next because sometimes that can take your eye off the ball, but after last week's disappointment I thought we responded excellently.

"No disrespect to them but I thought the scoreline flattered them. The first goal was a mistake and the second one was a mishit cross, but for the conditions that we were playing in today I thought we were in total control."

Barner enjoyed a scoring return to Bickland Park on his first appearance at the ground since hobbling out of Town's 3-2 win over Helston Athletic in the Cornwall Senior Cup on November 16.

The former University of Exeter winger, on his first start since returning from injury, scored twice in six second-half minutes to seal Town's progression into the quarter-finals.

"Shows his quality, doesn't he?" Westgarth said. "A great little move for his header and I thought the composure for his second one [was excellent], his first touch opened it up for him and a lovely little finish. I know the goalkeeper got a hand to it but it was a lovely finish."

Broglino had already scored two goals of his own in the first half, with a delightful chip over Torridgeside 'keeper Will Davis and another penalty putting Town 2-1 up at half-time.

The midfielder has been in fine scoring for Town in cup competitions this season, with those two strikes taking his tally to 11 goals in nine cup matches this term.

"To be fair, from their point of view I think they'll be disappointed with his first goal because we all thought it went over," Westgarth said. "I don't know what the 'keeper was thinking, it just went over his head.

"It settled us down and again he gets a penalty, you could put your mortgage on it, he's going to score, and then I thought he drove us on in the second half.

"His goals can mask over his performance sometimes but I thought today he drove from the front, the quality of passing was excellent and I thought he had a great performance."

The win was perfect response to last week's disappointing 3-0 defeat at local rivals Helston Athletic, in which Town put in one of their poorest performances in recent seasons.

"A sign of a good side I suppose," Westgarth said, "if you have a disappointing result and then you have another one, the cracks can start appearing.

"I think it was just a blip last week because we were poor and that was an uncharacteristic performance from us, but all you can do is win your next game and that's exactly what we've done."

Town's reward for beating Torridgeside is another home tie in the quarter-finals against St Blazey.

Town won 3-1 at St Blazey's Blaise Park in the FA Vase second qualifying round back in September and drew 2-2 at the same ground in the SWPL in October. They will also welcome them to Bickland Park in the league next Saturday, meaning the cup clash will be their fourth inside five and a half months.

"We seem to play the same sides, a lot gets documented about playing Helston all of the time but we'll play Blazey again now," Westgarth said. "We played them in the Vase at the beginning of the season and now we'll play them in the League Cup, and Saltash in the Charity Cup if we beat Penzance and again in the Senior Cup.

"We do seem to be playing the same sides but you can say that's a sign of success I guess in that the same sides are doing well.

"It'll be a mouthwatering tie and I think people would still see Falmouth and Blazey as a big game. They've had a good season themselves, I speak to Shaun [Vincent, St Blazey co-manager] quite often and it should be a nice little game."
