MIXED SUCCESS FOR FALMOUTH:
CSM 1, Falmouth 4
Falmouth played the first of their three group matches in this season's mixed competition at Pool School on Sunday.
The mixed team, consisting of Falmouth Ladies and men from Truro, braved the weather to open the defence of their County title. After a strong start a loose ball was capitalised on by the CSM forwards and converted past keeper Andy Webborn against the run of play. Falmouth soon hit back; a strong run down the right from Bernie Matthews found Iona Middleton wide.
She picked out Ged Millward whose driven cross was met brilliantly by Josh Pearce diving at the near post. Another goal soon followed with Will Smith converting over the keeper with a slick reverse touch.
After the break Falmouth continued to dominate and CSM struggled to gain any hold on the game. Any moves into the Falmouth 25 area were cut out brilliantly by the defence of Megan Cookson, Rachel Medd and Tom Hubbard.
A well rehearsed penalty corner saw Millward and Matthews link up to produce the third goal. Only a minute later Victoria Pryor picked up a ball off the keeper's pads for the fourth. Falmouth play Duchy and Penzance in their other group matches.
Falmouth team: Kat Barbery-Redd, Vic Pryor, Meg Cookson, Rachel Medd, Iona Middleton, Andy Webborn, Ged Millward, Bernie Matthews, Josh Pearce, Tom Hubbard, Jonny Sutton and Will Smith.
The league matches due to be played on Saturday were both postponed due to travelling conditions but the mixed game on Sunday was played at Pool School, report attached.
On Saturday Falmouth 1 have a rare Saturday off but Falmouth 2 play a friendly v Newquay 2 at Penryn College at 10.30am.
STUDENTS SET HIGH STANDARDS:
Students from Penryn and Falmouth GTUK Taekwon-do gathered together at the Laburnum Hall for a grading of which they were assessed on their ability to not only kick and punch but the skill they show in their patterns (sequences of techniques), Korean terminology, sparring and self defence.
The students were also being judged on their ability to show the five tenets of Taekwon-do – courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self control, and indomitable spirit.
It was pleasing to see the high standards of all the students.
We wish to give a big 'thank you' to all instructors involved in preparing the students for this successful grading and a massive "well done" to all the students who took part in the grading.
Taekwon-do is an excellent way to stay fit and active, to learn self defence as well as discipline.
The students train on a Tuesday and Thursday at the Temperence Hall in Penryn from 6pm, and at the Laburnum Hall, Falmouth on a Monday and Thursday from 6.30pm.
