A SAM Higgins double helped East Thurrock United upset play-off hopefuls Truro City to move onto 50 points for the season.
Rocks were up against a side gunning for promotion from the National League South this season but, despite securing their league status, were not heading south to go through the motions.
The away side broke the deadlock midway through the first half and it was little surprise that it was division top scorer Higgins that got it.
After Ryan Scott was denied a second goal in as many matches thanks to an alert save by Tom McHale, Higgins doubled the advantage.
A long ball was picked up by the striker and he blasted into the goal before half-time.
Truro improved after half-time, Cody Cooke was denied a goal by the offside flag and Andrew Neal headed over.
Tyler Harvey set up a nervy finish when he scored from the penalty spot – but it wasn’t to be enough.
East Thurrock United: Lidakevicius, Sammons (Christou 74), Harris, Wright, Darling, Clark, Phipps (Agyemang 66), Peddie, Higgins, Cornhill, Scott (Honesty 81)
