St Piran League East round-up — Saturday, September 28
LAUNCESTON Reserves pulled off the best result of their season so far as Ben Johnson’s winner gave them a 3-2 victory over their Saltash United counterparts at Pennygillam.
Marius Pislaru put the Clarets in front before the visitors made it all square by the break through Callum Brown.
Launceston continued to battle away but found themselves 2-1 down through Lloyd Jones.
However the returning Liam Tilley shot home from a corner to make it all square.
Pislaru’s afternoon ended early as he was sent off for foul and abusive language but despite going down to ten-men, the Clarets won it late on as Dan Tilley’s miscued shot allowed Johnson a simple tap-in and keep them fifth.
Morwenstow will be glad to see the back of St Mawgan after losing for the second time to them this season, this time in a nine-goal thriller.
The home side went 2-0 up within the first 15 minutes. The first was a tap-in from Ash Bicknell, as he was the only one to follow up a rebound.
The second was a well taken free-kick from Dan Ball.
Morwenstow brought one back shortly after, as a well-worked move allowed Matt Carter space to find the bottom corner.
St Mawgan responded straight away as Craig Allen tapped home from ten yards.
In an all-action first-half, Morwenstow were awarded a penalty and Aidan Davis despatched easily from the spot.
Once again the home side replied, after a free-kick from Bonar Maull was deflected passed Aaron Gregory to make it 4-2.
In the second-half the visitors were on top, and with the wind behind them they managed to get a foothold in the game.
Sam Hockin latched onto a rebound to bring the deficit back to one.
But once again the home team were quick to reply, this time through Allen’s second.
To keep the game alive Carter scored his brace after hitting an audacious effort from 25-yards, which bounced over the diving keeper.
The visitors thought they had snatched away a point, as a last minute header saw Hockin hit the crossbar from close range, but that was that.
Elsewhere, Callington Town Reserves drew 2-2 at home to their Sticker counterparts, while Wadebridge Town Reserves failed to raise a side for the trip to Bude.
