Cornwall village football tie ends in 55-0 score line.

Cornwall (UK), Nov.26 (ANI): There are mismatches in football and then there are humiliations and one Cornish team has been well and truly embarrassed after losing by 55 goals to nil.

In a scoreline more suited to the rugby field, Illogan RBL Reserves subjected Madron to the epic 55-0 thrashing last Saturday with one player scoring 10 goals alone.

And while the scale of the defeat was remarkable, according to the Daily Mail, Madron's players have become used to being humiliated on the field, having conceded 150 goals in their previous nine games and scoring only two.he Penzance-based team arrived for Saturday's game with just seven players and Illogan seized their numerical advantage by racing into a 24-0 lead at half time.

They passed the half-century mark in the second half and by the time Madron's capitulation was completed, 11 of Illogan's players had found the net. (ANI)
