Goal Fest in Southern Premier (as per Pitchero Non League news)

There was something of a goal fest in the Calor League Southern Premier Division on Saturday.

Top of the scorers were St Albans City, who made the long trek down to Cornwall to take on Truro City and returned home with an amazing 7-3 win!
Truro manager Steve Massey had been busy during the week bringing in two new signings, but by the first quarter of the match City were trailing 3-0!
Indecisiveness allowed Chris Watters the opportunity to place home the first, while central defender James Kaloczi headed home the second.
Darren Locke was allowed a free run in at goal to get on the end of a Watters left wing cross. 22 minutes on the clock, and the White Tigers were 3-0 down.
New signing Ben Watson threatened a comeback when he reduced the deficit to just one with a brace in the 48th and 68th minutes.
The optimism unfortunately lasted all of 4 minutes as out of absolutely nowhere Lee Chappell hit a long range shot that went in off the underside of the cross-bar.
The result was well and truly settled in the 77th minute when substitute Elliott Bailey slotted the ball home from the edge of the penalty area, although Cody Cooke did manage a third for the beleaguered hosts in the 80th minute.
But St Albans finished the day off in style with two more goals in stoppage time from Chris Henry and John Frendo to make it 7-3.
