FALMOUTH TOWN 8-0 WELLINGTON
Wellington were the first team Falmouth faced on their return to the Western League last season and, if memory serves correctly, it was a tight affair that ended in a draw.
Today highlighted how far Falmouth have come in those 13 months. Albeit if seems that Wellington have a weakened team this season.
Falmouth started brightly and were 3 up within 15 minutes. Tom Annear with the first from a powerful free-kick after a positive run from the much-improved Cam Hutchinson ended in Hutchinson being brought down a few yards outside of the Wellington box.
Luke Brabyn got his first from inside the area and then added another soon after. The best one coming after a mazy run from the tricky Jacob Grange. Later in the half, Alex Wharton broke down the left after an incisive through ball from Hutchinson, cut in and put the ball through the legs of the advancing keeper. The scoring was completed by Grange after his central run was picked out putting him one on one with the keeper. 5-0 at half-time.
Falmouth started the 2nd half with the same line-up but with a little less intensity and had to wait a few minutes before adding a 6th through skipper James Ward from a Hutchinson corner. The 7th goal came from a deep cross from the impressive substitute Kian Thomas which fell to Jared Sims on the far post who volleyed it Van Basten style past the Wellington keeper.
The final goal was scored by Cameron Hutchinson after Brabyn performed some typical magic wide left in the box bamboozling the full back before the ball fell to Hutchinson centrally who steered it home for his 5th of the season, cementing his position of top-scorer this season. Much deserved after an excellent game.
So Town improve their goal difference but remain behind Helston in 2nd place in the league.
How many weeks until Boxing Day???
