Harvey hat-trick sinks Crusaders

By

Tyler Harvey scored four goals as Truro claimed a massive three points against relegation rivals Hungerford Town.

Truro applied some early pressure and rewarded with an early penalty coming after an unfortunate slip by Josh Martin. Harvey converted low past Michael Luyambula despite the keeper getting a touch on the ball. Hungerford grew into the game and Cameron Hargreaves played in Rhys Kavanagh to convert a quick equaliser. The visitors then led once more after Harvey converted his second penalty. This time it is was a very controversial decision given by referee Spain when the initial handball appeared to be by a Truro player but this changed the momentum of the game. The hosts lack of concentration then cost them dear as just a minute later Harvey thumped home a header for his and Truro’s third from a corner. Tom Anderson and Matt Jones had efforts saved by Harvey Rivers before the break as Hungerford tried to get a foothold back in the game.
After the interval, the Crusaders’ day went from bad to worse when they lost captain Marvel Ekpiteta to a hamstring injury. A goal for Hungerford at this stage would have changed the complexion of the game but try as they might they couldn’t find a way through and Anderson’s low effort was saved by Rivers as half chances came and went. Harvey then finished off the game as a contest when he rounded the goalkeeper to finish into an empty net. Luyambula then saved a fierce Leigh-Gilchrist effort but the game petered out as Truro comfortably held out for a vital three points.
