Joint managers Matt Hayden and Shaun Vincent with some thinking to do at half time.

St Blazey started the second half as they ended the first with a bit more purpose to their play. With more possession, St Blazey started to look the more likely side to score and on 55 minutes it took an excellent save from Tyler Coombes from a McGhee shot to keep Argyle in front. With the heat, another drinks break on 70 minutes did the trick as just 4 minutes later, Callum Kenny picked up the ball and unleashed an unstoppable effort into the top corner giving the goalkeeper no chance. There were chances for both sides to win in the final minutes but a draw was a fair result on the day.
