LAW COMPLETES REMARKABLE SECOND HALF COMEBACK

THE White Tigers pulled off a remarkable second half comeback as we battled back from 0-3 down at the break to draw 3-3 against Poole Town at Treyew Road.

After a disastrous first 45 minutes which saw Poole breeze into a first half lead. A Harry Baker brace and a Josh Carmichael wonder strike put the visitors in complete control at the break. But an inspired second half performance saw Truro claw back the encounter with goals from Luke Jephcott, Tyler Harvey and Ryan Law to complete a truly remarkable comeback.

It was a rather slow start to proceedings in the torrential rain at Treyew Road until the visitors broke the deadlock on sixteen minutes. After a scramble in the area which saw Truro fail to clear their lines, Harry Baker scrambled the ball home from close range to give Poole the lead.

Things then went from bad to worse for Truro as Baker scored again with a fantastic finish from an acute angle as Poole were taking charge of the encounter.

Truro's nightmare half only got worse as Josh Carmichael tried his luck from distance and fired past Hamon into the bottom corner to put Poole in complete control at the break.

Truro needed a reaction at half time if they were to pull this one back and a reaction was exactly what they got.

Luke Jephcott started the comeback with a well taken finish into the bottom corner after turning his man in the box seven minutes into the second half.

Will Dean then played Thompson in on the right hand side before he picked out Tyler Harvey who headed home to put us well and truly back in the game.

With the clock ticking more Truro chances followed. Jephcott headed a Niall Thompson cross wide at the near post while Tyler Harvey turned in the box well but fired his shot high and wide.

Just when we thought the game was done, the ball found its way to an unmarked Ryan Law on the left hand side who hammered a shot into the far bottom corner past a helpless Cairney to complete an incredible second half Truro comeback.

An outstanding game of football which sees the White Tigers remain second in the league. We are back at Treyew Road again on Saturday as we host struggling Hendon.
