Falmouth Town produced an excellent second-half display to come from behind and defeat Wadebridge Town 4-2 at Bickland Park.

Town fell behind in the first half through Jacob Smale in the 16th minute but equalised thanks to Jack Bray-Evans three minutes later.

Wadebridge did go into the interval a goal to the good however when Matt Lloyd converted a corner rising unmarked to score at the near post.

But Falmouth showed the sort of character and desire that has them sitting comfortably at the top of the league in the second half with three well-taken goals.

David Broglino scored twice in quick succession not long after the break, his second was a sublime David Beckham esque long shot into the top left corner.

Wadebridge had no reply to Falmouth’s frenzy of attacks and Brabyn put the icing on the cake in the 85th minute when he smashed in following a frantic goalmouth scramble.

The 16th league victory in a row sees Town extend their lead at the top of the South West Peninsula League to 12points with rivals Camelford being forced to postpone their match due to an unplayable pitch.

Next up for Falmouth is a trip to Launceston on Saturday, December 18.

Town had the better of the opening stages and tested Wadebridge keeper Rob Rosevear in the sixth minute with a long-distance shot from David Broglino, but the gloveman did ell to hold onto the effort in the wet conditions.

Two minutes later Ward had the first of several opportunities for him when he towered above his man to get on the end of a Broglino free-kick. But the effort went just wide of the right post.

Bray-Evans was denied by Rosevear in the ninth minute after latching onto the end of a short back pass his first-time effort was well parried away by the shot-stopper.

In the 16th minute, Wadebridge took the lead arguably against the run of play. Matt Lloyd picked out Jacob Smale with a terrific through ball in behind the defence. The winger, who had earlier sent a sighter wide of the goal, this time had the composure to dink the ball over the onrushing Barnes to make it 0-1.

Falmouth aren't used to being behind but responded fantastically with an equaliser just three minutes later from Bray-Evans.

Scott Kellow picked out the forward with an exquisitely weighted pass and the Falmouth number nine showed his confidence to slot into the bottom right corner to make it 1-1 with 19 minutes played.

Town looked to build on this strike in the following phases. Ward was unfortunate to have another header cleared off the line in the 26th minute as the visitors struggled to contain the usually prolific centre back.

Bray-Evans was showing he was in the mood for goals and nearly had a goal of the season contender in the 36th minute when he surprised everyone by pulling the trigger from all of 30 yards. But his shot whistled just wide of the mark.

But despite the catalogue of Falmouth attacks, it was Wadebridge who went into the halftime interval a goal to the good thanks to Lloyd.

Ward had previously done well to clear a dangerous cross for a corner. But from the inswinging set-piece, Lloyd was unmarked as he stooped at the near post to direct the cross into the back of the net in the 42nd minute.

Falmouth had one more opportunity to equalise before the break but Broglino’s whipped free-kick was easily cleared by the defence.

The home side needed to respond if they were to keep up their winning run and they did just that three minutes into the second half through Broglino. Kirk Davies found Luke Brabyn on the right with a well-executed pass.

The number seven could have gone round his man but instead picked out Luke Barner who touched the neatly for Broglino to sidefoot past the keeper from around 12 yards out.

Barner tried his luck in the 51st minute ‘Ronaldo chopping’ his way round his man before shooting at the near post. His dipping effort was awkwardly booted away by Rosevear.

With 54 minutes on the clock, Broglino produced a moment of magic, worthy of winning any football match. A long seeking cross found Brabyn who set the ball back to Falmouth's number eight.

The midfield maestro elected to hit his effort first time, directing his curling effort into the far top corner much to the delight of the Falmouth faithful.

Broglino, known to the F Troop as ‘Broggy’, should have scored his hat trick in the 59th minute to put the game beyond doubt.

Brabyn and Bray-Evans combined again on the right side where Wadebridge simply couldn’t handle the Falmouth attackers.

Brabyn cut the ball back to Broglino who was in a similar position to his first goal, however, on this occasion his effort flew over the bar.

A quiet spell in the game followed while Falmouth continued to dominate proceedings, the returning Marcelo Jones bent a superb ball in behind the defender and full back to Brabyn.

Bearing down on goal the attackers angle was tightening and his eventual effort was well blocked by the covering defender.

Falmouth gifted Wadebridge their only major chance of the second half when Davies and Barnes both sliced attempted clearances to give the visitors a corner.

From the set-piece Smale was picked out at the far post but his speculative volley was never going to trouble the keeper, sailing wide of the goal.

Falmouth had two chances in a matter of moments to extend their lead in the 82nd minute.

Brabyn firstly saw a left-footed shot cleared by the keeper, moments later he sent two defenders flying before setting up Barner, but his shot was well tipped over by Rosevear.

In the 85th minute, Falmouth eventually put the game beyond doubt thanks to Brabyn scoring from close range. A corner caused mayhem in the box which saw Ward and Bray-Evans amongst Falmouth players to have a go at goal.

The ball eventually fell kindly to Brabyn less than a yard out to smash in his 20th, and probably the easiest goal of his season so far.
