The Lambs had to make further changes with the starting line up with Mason Hughes added to the extensive injury list, making the total six unavailable for selection.
It was Bodmin on the front foot from the start, pressing high up the pitch making it difficult for the Lambs to put any pressure on their defence.
The home team took the lead in the 14th minute when Moody shot low into the corner of the net from sixteen yards. Three minutes later Bodmin doubled their lead when Moody was again on hand to fire the ball home from ten yards.
The Lambs reduced the deficit in the20th minute when Jack Crago was dragged to the ground in the penalty area. Josh Grant stepped up to flash the spot kick home. This lifted the visitors and it was not long before a good move saw Luke Brown find Jack Crago, but his shot was well saved by Harvey.
The Lambs continued to find it difficult to get their passing game going with many moves breaking down through a poor pass, or trying to beat one man to many.
Bodmin increased their lead on the half hour when poor marking by the visitors saw Colwell flash the ball home from fourteen yards.
Minutes later Harvey in the home goal made a fine save bravely diving at the feet of Jack Crago to deny him a scoring opportunity.
Just before the interval, it was game over, when Bodmin scored a fourth goal, when a shot from Colwell took a wicked deflected which looped the ball over Josh Oak into the net.
The second half got even worse for the Lambs when in the 53rd minute when Bodmin were awarded a penalty kick when Josh Robins committed a foul in the area. He was sent off following a second yellow card. Glynn Hobbs spot kick was brilliantly saved by Josh Oak.
It was really backs to the wall for the Lambs now, as Bodmin piled on the pressure and
It was not long before ex Lambs player Glynn Hobbs got in on the act as he made it five just before the hour mark.
Bodmin were making the man advantage pay, in the 75th minute it was Hobbs that finished off a fine move having the easiest of tasks know to slot the ball home from two yards. Three minutes later it was seven for the home team when Steer fired home from twelve yards.
The Lambs reduced the arrears in the closing stages when good work by substitute Bailey Williams resulted in Jack Crago slotting the ball home from ten yards.
This was the poorest performance from a Lambs team for a number of years they were just not at the races. Bodmin took full advantage of the situation and were really up for this game, having suffered a seven one defeat at Langsford Park a few weeks ago.
Manager Stuart Henderson said “ultimately the buck stops with me, and despite this being the first league defeat of the season we have been poor in a few games lately. Every team goes through spells of form even with a large number of players missing through injury we have at present, the performance was so uncharacteristic of ourselves as a collective group. A very disappointing night”
