Duchy Premier Dobwalls 2 Gunnislake 1 GUNNISLAKE welcomed back a couple of their many missing players and had the luxury of having three substitutes for the first time in many weeks. A good Ash Dobson through pass released Jarryd Kelly on five minutes and when the latter cut across a Dobwalls defender the home player slid in and brought down Kelly; the visitors claimed a penalty ? unfortunately for them the referee disagreed. The hosts took the lead midway through the half. Neil Kinger won the ball in the centre circle and found Kelly who played in fellow striker Darren Woolley. From the left side of the penalty area Woolley curled inside the far post for an excellent finish. Not through a lack of effort there were no further goals before the turnaround as each side looked for openings but could not break down the opposing rearguard. The visitors were the brighter side in the opening 15 minutes of the second period creating three good scoring opportunities. Shane Maton was twice well denied by the Dobwalls keeper before the hosts levelled on 55 minutes. Soon after Kelly brought a good stop from the hosts keeper who was keeping his team in the game. The remainder of the match was end to end with each side intent on winning, making it an entertaining encounter. However, with the game looking to be heading for a draw Dobwalls snatched a winner in the 88th minute. l Gunnislake?s reserve team lost on their travels to Dynamo St Dennis. With little between these 2 teams in the table the defeat for table toppers Gunnislake was not a particular shock but the magnitude of it was as they went down 8-1. Prior to this fixture Gunnislake had only conceded 8 goals in their 10 league fixtures this season. l Gunnislake?s premier division side are without a fixture this weekend while the reserves host St Newlyn East on Saturday in a match kicking off at 2.30pm.
