The Western Divsional Final

Wednesday 26th February 2014 was the Western Divsional Final.

Chacewater FC v Helston Athletic FC, at Gala Parc home of Porthleven FC.

Helston Athletic FC win the Western Divisonal Final 2-0

The match between Chacewater FC and Helston Athletic FC Reserves was much anticipated amongst supporters and a crowd of over 300 people turned out on the night at Gala Parc, to watch their team fight for the Divisional title and a place in the prestigious Easter Monday Finals.

The attending spectators did not have to wait long to see the action unfold on the pitch: In the 14th minute an unlucky deflection from a Chacewater player, who thought the ball was going wide, ended up in his own net. The remainder of the first half of that match was a very even contest between the two clubs, with Chacewater pressuring Helston Athletic in an attempt to equalize, but to no avail.

In the second half Chacewater now had the advantage of playing with the wind and rain, but two clear shots ended up going wide of the goal on both occasions. Outstanding saves were made by both goalkeepers in the following phases of play and kept the high spirited game alive.

With twelve minutes to go Helston Athletic’s captain Shaun Parker scored but his effort was judged to be offside, much to the supporters’ dismay. Helston Athletic kept going strongly and with just one minute to go in stoppage time they scored the deciding goal: Tom Lake’s shot made it 2-0 and sealed the game for Helston Athletic, declaring them winners of the Western Divisional Junior Cup Final and ensuring them a place in the Easter Monday Final.

Cornwall FA Council Member Nigel Hannaford reflected that “it was a very good match and a great advert for Junior Football”. The match was very competitive and played in high spirit. The team of manager Graham Blake are now set to play Veryan FC, winners of the Eastern Divisional Final, in the Easter Monday Junior Cup Finals at Bodieve Park on 21st April 2014.
