1979 LAUNCESTON K.O CUP Final
DARITE 2-1 PELYNT
Neil Hosken(2)..............Antony Powell
HOSKEN WINS IT FOR DARITE
Darite made amends for being last year's beaten finalists when they beat Pelynt 2-1 in a cliff hanger of a game which had to be decided in extra time.
With defences dominating the game remained goal less until 12 minutes from time when Pelynt took the lead through Antony Powell. Darite came right back and hit the equaliser four minutes later through Neil Hosken. Progressing to extra time Darite had the better of the first period exchanges and were rewarded with what proved to be the winner from Hosken.
The second half saw Pelynt apply immense pressure and they were unlucky not to level the terms when an almost certain goal from Powell produced an incredible save from Roy Lavers who was in excellent shape in the Darite goal
