Barbery Hits Hat-Trick as Duchy Progress
Duchy coasted into the semi-finals of the Cornwall Cup with 7-0 victory over Penzance A.
Having put ten goals past Truro B in their oppening group game, victory by any margin against would have sent Duchy through to the knockout stages of the cup. As it was, a Stuart Barbery hat-trick proved to be the centrepiece of a 7-0 win against a determined Penzance A side who fought valliently considering the four-division gulf in class.
Andrew West started the scoring early on, with Barbery then adding his first of the day to give the favorites a 2-0 half time lead; before a brace from man of the match, Ben Flint, put Duchy 4-0 up. Barbery than added two more to seal his hat trick, before Alex Roberts completed the rout.
