Ludgvan 4v2 St Blazey. Att. 82. (14 away)

Ludgvan won their first ever home SWPL match in style after fighting back from 0v2 down after just 17 minutes. St Blazey playing in their blue away strip, and with their two new signing, Goalkeeper Toby Chapman from Goldophin and Striker Jason Vincent from St Austell, started well, pushing Ludgvan back and creating chances down the right hand side. St Blazey took the lead after just 5 minutes when the ball in was headered against the bar and the re bound was headed home by Joe Stone from 6 yards, the first ever SWPL goal at Fair field. St Blazey were in control and Vincent for St Blazey was holding the ball up well with Perryman causing Ludgvans back four all sorts of problems. Another Corner for St Blazey was swung in and skipper Ryan Howe was left at the far post to head home from a narrow angle. Ludgvan threatened with a freekick that went narrowly wide before St Blazey almost made it 3 with some great football with Lyle Johnson playing some neat one twos before playing in Perryman whos shot come cross was cleared. Ludgavn broke away and Duncan was caught from behind leaving the Ref no choice but to award a penalty. Dan Magee scored  the penalty with Chapman almost getting a good hand on it. Ludgvan were now on the front foot with chances in the box deflecting all over the place but St Blazey looked to have held on but in the 44th minute Gerens James was played in on the right and he smashed the ball home to make it 2v2 in the 44th minute.

Half Time. Ludgvan 2v2 St Blazey.

Paddy West came on for St Blazey at half time but after just 2 minutes Ludgvan were 3v2 up. Josh Magin taking advantage of some poor defending to give the Hurlers the lead for the first time. St Blazey looked flat and just couldnt get enough pressure on Ludgvans back line while they were looking dangerous on every attack. Chapman in goal was being kept busy and pulled of several saves including one excellent save that looked a certain goal. St Blazey on the other hand were getting frustrated and picked up 4 yellow cards during the game. With 15 minutes to go St Blazey threw bodies forward and could have found the equaliser but for some last ditch defending. With time running out St Blazey knocked ball long and the linesman gave offside. With Ludgvan trying to take the freekick 10 yards further forward the Referee made them take it back. St Blazey switched off and the long ball found Max Davies who scored to make it 4v2. St Blazey still pushed forward and one final chance fell to Skirton when Johnson played him in only for his chipped effort to curl high and wide.

Final Score. Ludgvan 4v2 St Blazey.

St Blazey now face the 325 mile round trip to Bristol next Saturday to face Cadbury Heath in the F.A Vase.

Ludgvan score a penalty to make it 1v2.
