ST MERRYN OVERSTAY THEIR WELCOME IN SHOOTOUT:
There was a cup upset in the Bodmin Sports Trophies League Cup where St Merryn of Division Five won through on penalties against Welcome Inn of Division Three.
Welcome seemed in control when Tom Pickering and Carl Webster gave them a two-goal lead. St Merryn put in a dogged performance and drew level through Mike Shearer and Ashley Rescorla to take the game to a penalty shootout.
With the pitch now resembling a mud bath, St Merryn held their nerve to win the shootout 4-2.
DANS THE MEN AT DOUBLE:
North Petherwin reserves are through to a Trims & Windows Reserve Cup semi-final after upsetting higher division Gunnislake reserves 6-3 in their quarter-final tie.
Two up at the break, the second half flowed from end-to-end with the home team keeping their noses in front to spring little surprise.
Dan Hancock and Dan Warring scored a brace apiece for the hosts with Paul Penny and Sam Stockdale adding their remaining goals. Gunnislake replied with a Mike King brace and a Glen Tremblett goal.
JOSH HAT-TRICK JOY:
Saltash United are six points clear at the top of the Premier Division after beating St Columb Major 4-1 with Josh Fedrick hitting a hat trick. Tony Jane was the other home scorer with Daley McErlain replying.
Fowey United keep in touch of the top two after a Josh Frampton hat trick helped them to a 6-0 win at St Mawgan. Sam Marchant added a brace with Tom Vincent getting a first goal of the season.
There was an exhilarating game at St Newlyn East where Mevagissey came away with a 6-5 win. Miles Gardner and Jamie Hellier put the visitors two up, but Newlyn roared back to level before half time.
Mevagissey restored a healthy lead and led 6-3 with the game in its later stages, but back came Newlyn to reduce the arrears and they hit the woodwork twice in the closing minutes to deny them an incredible victory.
Russell Withers scored a brace for Newlyn with Matt Toms, Chris Hall and Mike Thompson on his debut adding further goals.
Gardner scored a brace for Mevagissey with Jamie Hellier, Bruce Campbell, Adam Trudgian and Chris Dingle their other scorers.
MOORE THE MERRIER:
Pensilva missed a chance to close in on the Division One leaders when conceding an equaliser at Altarnun. Pensilva brought the best out of the home keeper in the first half, but finally took the lead just before half time when Jack Penhaligon shot home.
Altarnun didn't really raise their game until the last quarter, but when they did Danny Moore to earn a 1-1 draw.
Second placed Biscovey also lost out when well beaten 4-1 at St Dominick. The home side had the better of the opening 25 minutes, but fell behind from the visitors' first real attack when James Cutlan lobbed the keeper on the half hour.
Jon Savigar quickly equalised and then scored a second from close range just before half time. With conditions worsening as heavy showers littered the game, St Dominick went on to dominate in the second half.
They went further ahead in the 75th minute after a defensive mistake when Savigar had his first shot blocked by the keeper but followed up to complete his hat trick.
Savigar turned provider two minutes from time when he set up Scot Coombe for the fourth.
Gunnislake stay rooted to the bottom after losing 3-1 at home to Maker with Rame. A Neill Williams brace and a Justin Tremayne goal put the visitors in control before Kieren Jasper pulled back a consolation.
LONG AND WINNING ROAD:
North Petherwin moved to within three points of the top of Division Two after winning their longest journey of the season, 4-3 at Gerrans &St Mawes United.
Andy Butler, Callum Reeve, Ryan Julian and Simon Oliver scored their goals with Haydn Andrew, Charlie Andrew and Queron Richards replying for the hosts.
Two Mike Horne goals put AFC Bodmin on the way to a 3-1 win at Boscastle. Dexter Reeve was the other visiting scorer with Jon Brewer replying.
Sticker beat St Breward 3-2. Sticker's inability to convert chances was apparent in the first half as opportunity after opportunity was spurned.
Even a penalty couldn't help as Matt Lloyd's spot kick sailed over the bar. The home side were made to pay with St Breward making the most of some sloppy defending and Adam Sleep bagging a brace.
The home side did pull a goal back before the interval with a superb strike from Matt Searle.
Sticker started the second half as if they meant business but again chances came and went with the two returning from injury first teamers Lloyd and Ben Rosevear the guilty parties.
Eventually after continuing pressure Lloyd squared the ball for Martin Matthews to force home the equaliser.
With time running out Lloyd at last managed to hit the target, which turned out to be the winning goal. Ben Nurse in the visitors' goal deserved special mention for a number of brilliant saves.
CAMELS COPP IT CUBERT:
Holywell/Cubert Athletic took advantage of the leaders not playing to take over at the top of Division Three. Connor Drew and Lee Copp with his first goal gave them a 2-0 win over Camelford.
Two other promotion hopefuls met at Launceston College with LC Phoenix thrashing Stoke Climsland 4-0. Nathan Cox, Shaun Cox, Matt Brookes and Harry Marsh scored the goals.
Lanivet Inn won 3-2 at Tregony with Sam Goodswen scoring a brace and James Cackett adding their other goal. Connor Pearce and Simon Beel replied for Tregony.
GREGORY'S GOALS GLEE:
An interesting set of results has opened up the Division Four title race. Third placed St Neot handed just a second league defeat of the season on leaders North Hill.
Adam Gregory scored a brace in a 4-2 win with Dan Chapman and Adam King completing the home tally. North Hill hit back through a Greg Hutchings goal and a Jason Ridgment penalty kick.
Second placed Lifton lost their chance to close the gap after being beaten 3-2 at home by Gorran.
Lifton scored through Matt Endacott and an own goal, but the inconsistent visitors prevailed with a Jack Bray-Smith brace and a Mike Brennan goal.
Fourth placed Pensilva were denied a derby win late on as St Cleer reserves equalised for a 3-3 draw just before the end.
Andy Cobb gave St Cleer the lead on a heavy pitch with Adam Hicks restoring parity. Cobb scored again to restore the visitors' lead, but Brendan McCarthy equalised just before the break.
This was a little harsh on St Cleer who had had the better of the first half giving the hosts a lot of problems.
Pensilva improved after the break and Josh Johnson put them ahead for the first time. It was probably justice that Ben Fisher levelled at the death.
VERYAN IN SEVEN HEAVEN:
Veryan move three points clear at the top of Division Five after winning the only game played in that division 7-1 at home to Boscastle reserves.
Bobby Lee-Johns, Justin Trebilcock and Charlie Mooney all scored a brace with Martin Bishop completing the home tally.
The Boscastle consolation came from Dean Favreau.
