PENRYN ATHLETIC 2 - ST BLAZEY 3

Penryn's last game of the season saw them play host to probable League Champions, St Blazey. On what was a beautiful day the home side proved that they are able to hold their own against the best in the league. In what was a hard fought game with the visitors' tempers getting the better of them on a number of occasions Penryn showed that their recent run of success was no fluke.

Just twelve minutes into the game saw Andy Avery's well directed free-kick find Adam Trudgian who made good use of Dennis Annear's hesitation in the Saints' goal to steal in and score at the second attempt. Just two minutes later after a superb build up the home side went 2-0 up when Dave Wilkinson's cross come shot flew inside the Saint's far post.

The visitors' frustration at the scoreline soon became apparent when tempers flared and a St Blazey player was sent off the field for the use of bad language. However, seven minutes before the break Glynn Hooper's cross found Mark Vercesi's header taking a deflection of substitute, Darren Martin to wrong foot Avery.

The scores were level just five minutes after the break as Dale Band dribbled past Avery only for the keeper to make contact with the stiker giving Steve Daly the opportuntiy to score from the penalty spot. The visitors breathed a sigh of relief when just seven minutes later Avery parried Band's drive for Hooper to tap the ball home from close range.

Penryn continued to battle well through to the final whistle and Ryan Williams was unlucky to have his superb volley hit the cross bar rather than the back of the net which would have provided the home side with a well deserved point from their final game.
