Reports from week beginning 29 November:

Year 11 Boys’ Football v Falmouth School – County Cup Third Round (Home)

Thursday evening saw the Year 11 Boys’ Football team exit the County Cup following a dramatic penalty shootout defeat to Falmouth School.

The all-important penalty shootout was preceded by a thrilling 3-3 draw in normal time, and it was a contest that saw the pendulum swing from one side to the other throughout.

Indeed, after establishing a first-half, two-goal lead, Penryn found themselves 3-2 down going into the latter stages of the match, but the squad’s never-say-die attitude paid off, as Ethan netted a late equaliser to take the game to penalties.

Unfortunately, Falmouth ran out 4-2 winners in the shootout, but the squad can be proud of their efforts.
