Falmouth Town’s young St. Piran’s team visited Trungle Park on Saturday to face League leaders Mousehole.

Falmouth’s back five of Connor McCarthy, George Evans, Andy Miles, Scott Yendle and Max Everall really showed grit and determination and were ably backed up by goalkeeper and Captain Zach Telling to deny Mousehole. 

The young Town side are made of stern stuff and after the first 10 minutes, had started to get a foothold into the match and play their own football.

On 36 minutes, a run and cross by wingback Everall saw both Kian Thomas and then Charlie Edney from the rebound going close to breaking the deadlock.

This was short-lived though as two minutes later, a long throw out from Telling found Thomas down the left wing who sent in a cross for Edney to convert and send the visitors in at halftime one nil up. 

Things got even better for Town in the second half as, on 48 minutes, Thomas cut in from the left and smashed a shot from all of 25 yards.

Jos Plummer then burst through Mousehole’s defence for a one-on-one with the goalie but was denied to keep Mousehole in the game and

Mousehole pulled a goal back on 70 minutes when a long-range shot squeezed past Telling.  Town took the challenge head-on and on 80 minutes, Edney burst through and hammered the ball into the net.

In the last 10 minutes, Town held their nerve and saw the game out in a very professional manner with the score finishing 3-1 and taking the three points home.
