On a beautiful, and dry day at the Penzance Astro Park on Sunday (8 December), the CHA U14 Girls League reached its half way stage, setting up a thrilling prospect for the Truro Green squad in the next round due to take place in Penzance on 2nd February.
Truro began the day having made a solid, and undefeated start in R1, and looking to progress into the top half of the table.
Superb team performances by all the girls against strong opposition from Penzance B, Bude, Truro High School and Falmouth, twice saw them come back from a goal down to take the match.
Sheer determination and excellent defensive play from Ellie Casanove and Jasmine Hallam kept Truro in contention, with all the forwards playing their part, scoring a goal each to keep the points and goal tally on track.
The Green's finished the day undefeated for a second time, and top of the league on equal points with Penzance A, but with Penzance slightly ahead on goal difference.
Now all the sides have played each other once, the return leg can begin.
With a 0:0 draw in the first round, Truro Green and Penzance A will meet for the second and final time in February, in a match that could ultimately decide the title!
