Truro City 2 Weston Super Mare 1 (28.08.2017)
Back into winning ways...
THE WHITE Tigers made a return to winning ways with a 2-1 victory over Weston Super Mare on a sunny Bank Holiday Monday afternoon.
It was the visitors who had a great chance to take an early lead from the penalty spot, but Tom McHale, who was in such inspired form in the previous game, saved the spot-kick.
It gave us a real boost and Tyler Harvey went close to opening the scoring at the other end with ten minutes on the clock, however, he dragged his effort just wide.
We started to get into our stride as the half went on and posed a couple of questions until we won a penalty of our own on 33 minutes.
Harvey stepped up and made no mistake to open the scoring as he sent the ‘keeper the wrong way.
Despite the hot conditions, it was a lively encounter with plenty of endeavour from both sides.
Holding a single-goal lead going into the second half, we were searching for the all-important next goal and it duly arrived courtesy of Cody Cooke who found the net on 64 minutes.
It gave us some breathing space until our visitors managed to reduce the arrears with ten minutes to go and it made for a tense ending to the game.
McHale was called into action on a couple of occasions as Weston searched for a leveller, but we held firm to take all three points and move up to seventh place in the table.
