Wootton Bassett's hopes of an extended FA Vase run were dashed by Cornish visitors St Blazey who scored two late goals to defeat the Hellenic Premier side 2-0, writes Ray Burroughs.
Bassett almost took a surprise lead after three minutes, Justin Hyde just failing to get a final touch.
Home keeper Richard Stevens kept his side in the game making a great save from a well taken free-kick.
As half-time approached a quick break by the home side saw Mark Simpkins thread a good through ball for Mark Vaughan who shot just wide of the post.
Bassett started the second half well, forcing a couple of quick corners, but they were well cleared by the Cornish defence who switched to the attack and Harrington scraped the bar with good effort and Stevens made a brilliant close range save from Hooper.
The home side missed a glorious chance to take the lead on the hour when Paul O'Connell found himself with only the keeper to beat but shot wide.
With just 10 minutes remaining St Blazey took the lead their top marksman Dominic Richardson forcing the ball over the line from a corner. Bassett defender Phil Penning thought he had cleared the ball but the linesman decided that the ball had crossed the line.
Three minutes later the visitors made sure of victory by adding a second from Nigel Pugh.
