Tavistock Men A v Truro B

South West One



ON Thursday evening the Tavistock A squad managed their first group training session this season and it paid dividends on Saturday. 

Truro B fielded good individual players but Tavistock looked like the stronger team.

Nineteen minutes in, Tavistock’s press formation captured a Truro hit-out and Maxa pounced to open the scoring and adding to his growing goal tally. Ten minutes later Solly Kurzman powered into the D and extended Tavistock’s lead to give them a 2-0 advantage as the teams went in at half time.

Tavistock looked competent, moving the ball early and passing before they could be challenged. Truro successfully kept them pinned in one third of the pitch for a time but gradually Tavistock started to bring the ball back and around the pitch.

Once using the full width they were able to move quickly around the Truro midfield and mount attacks.

One attack led to a penalty corner, which captain Hugh Venton skilfully lifted over the keeper’s pads for Tavistock’s third goal.

Tavistock started to look comfortable – always a danger sign for them – and sure enough Truro began to edge back into the game. Fortunately for the home side Nick Andrews seized an opportunity, scoring a decisive fourth goal, after which the team maintained their impetus to the whistle.

There were strong performances from Tavistock’s young players – Joe Rizk had a solid game and Freddy Bott was outstanding.

Man of the match this week was Izaac Kirwan who had an almost flawless match, dominating the central defence.
