|Teign A were forced to travel away with a bare 11 once again. Sliding dangerously close to the relegation zone a failure could be disastrous. With 3 inexperienced youngsters in the side things looked very challenging. Truro started well having a good slice of posession but Teign grew into the game as their young lads settled into the senior game. the center spine of the side held well using Jordan Hellier and Joss Chappell to break forward whilst Phil Wright covered in front of the defence. Thankfully Liam Town in goal also brought his “A” game to deny Truro the chances they made. Up against superior strength Charlie Bloor, Sam Evans and Reuben Vasey battled to hold the flanks uner severe pressure. Listening to advice from seniors they grew in confidence and produced telling tackles and breaks. Nathan Full playing as a solo forward managed to hold the ball to allow players to support. From a penalty corner Teign managed to find the net when Full played a one two with Wright and slotted home to give Teign the lead. Sadly even Town could not prevent the equaliser shortly after. Finding a repost Teign scored from another penalty corner when Wright fed Jordan Hellier to score. Full broke free soon after but the keeper made a fine save to deny him. 2-1 at half time was a real triumph for Teign.
The second half saw Teign pushed onto the back foot as the very young and the very old players in the side began to flag. Showning comendable fortitde they continued to battle. Martyn Bradbury took a second blow on the leg from a lifted ball causing concern but he was thankfully able to continue. Alongside Jon Hodgeson,Charlie Judge, and Reuben Vasey, Bradbury tackled and sweept clear all that Truro could throw at them. Town also produced a series of good saves including one real matchwinner. The feeling of elation as the final whistle went was plainly evident amongst the entire Teign team who deserve the plaudits to a man for such an epic effort.
