Match Report

Grampound 2-7 Veryan

Saturday 22nd September 2018
KMD Duchy League Knockout Cup


It was always going to be a tough game against a strong Premier Division team and so it proved although Grampound should be pleased that for some periods of the game they looked dangerous. After a good start by the home side, the old defensive frailties returned and the visitors were suddenly three goals up. With half time approaching, Grampound pulled one back. Following a corner the ball came back off Veryan's post and Dylan Fox smashed the ball into into the roof of the net.

Grampound came out for the second half with renewed energy and a good run and low shot from Fox hit the back of the net for his second goal. Veryan were visibly rocked at this point and Grampound sensed a glimmer of hope but the floodgates opened once again and the visitors ran away with it after scoring a clutch of goals in a fifteen minute spell midway through the half.
