SWPL Champions Bowl

Luke Brabyn scored two late penalties as Falmouth Town beat Torpoint Athletic 4-2 in the Champions Bowl to complete a memorable treble-winning campaign.

Jack Bray-Evans opened the scoring for Town in the match between the two South West Peninsula League champions at Bodmin Town’s Priory Park, with the freescoring Falmouth man doubling the SWPL Premier West winners’ lead ten minutes before half-time.

Ryan Richards halved the deficit for Dean Cardew’s east Cornwall outfit just before the break before the same man hauled the SWPL Premier East champions back level midway through the second stanza.

But just as penalties were looming, Brabyn slotted home the winning goal from the spot with two minutes left of the 90, before repeating the trick two minutes later to clinch his side’s third trophy of an incredible season.

Both sides ended the game with ten men, with Torpoint’s Callum O’Brien receiving a second yellow for the foul that led to the second penalty, before Town substitute Bowyer was given his marching orders for time wasting deep into stoppage time.

St Piran League

Wednesday (7.30pm)
Saltash Borough v Illogan RBL (at St Dennis)

East Cornwall Premier League

We are set for a dramatic season finale on Wednesday night after title hopefuls Torpoint Athletic and Altarnun both recorded victories in their penultimate games on Saturday.

Christopher Westall scored a five-timer as Torpoint ran out 11-0 winners over St Stephen, with William Ferguson (2), Adam Blair, Josh Payn, Thomas Rowe and Byron Robbins also getting on the scoresheet, while Charlie Wevill, Alex Shopland, Samuel Wade and Bradley Stokes scored as Altarnun defeated St Minver 4-0.

That means the destination of the ECPL trophy will be one of three clubs, with the recipient to be decided in the final match of the season on Wednesday when Torpoint host Altarnun.

The permutations are simple: if Torpoint win, they win the title; if Altarnun win, they will be crowned champions; and if it’s a draw, current leaders Gunnislake will be champions.

Friday (7.30pm)
Torpoint Athletic thirds 11-0 St Stephen

Saturday (1.30pm unless stated)
Foxhole Stars 5-1 Newquay Academy
Altarnun 4-0 St Minver (2pm)

Wednesday (7.30pm)
