Lamerton moved through to the second round of the KMD Developments Knockout Cup with Simon Kelly and James Steer scoring in a 2-1 win at St Mawgan. James Olsen replied.
Torpoint Athletic put out Week St Mary 2-1, but it was only an unbelievable goalkeeping performance and profligacy in front of goal that denied them a much bigger win.

Rob Edwards and Dominic Murray scored for Torpoint with Barkwill replying. Torpoint's reward is a mouth-watering home second round tie with Saltash United.
WILLIAMS SCORES FOUR:
High Street caused an upset in the Bodmin Trophies League Cup winning 1-0 away at third division Lanivet Inn.
A closely fought game was decided by a Charles Battersby strike five minutes before half time.
Ashley Williams scored four goals as Holywell/Cubert Athletic hit Delabole with an 8-1 defeat. Aidan Reek added a brace with Lachlan Brace and Peter Bruce completing the rout.
Mike Barrett pulled one back from the penalty spot for Delabole.
Lifton travelled to Wadebridge and progressed to the second round with a 3-1 victory. Paul Dingle was the home scorer.
PENSILVA UNDONE BY LATE SHOW AT SALTASH:
Pensilva lost their unbeaten record at the top of the Premier Division when going down 2-1 at Saltash United.
It was all going well for Pensilva when Sam Rogers gave them the lead. They were holding out quite well before being hit with two late goals from Lee Hawkins and Josh Tapp.
St Columb Major picked up a first win of the season beating Pelynt 5-2. The visitors took the lead with a 12th minute strike from Billy Tedder-Hart.
The hosts levelled in the 22nd minute when Scott Wheadon cut in to equalise and from a long ball in the 45th minute Wheadon broke through the defence to score his second.
Right from the restart Aaron Talbot scored a debut goal with a good shot from a tight angle. Dom Roberts fired an unstoppable shot from forty yards in the 61st minute and two minutes later Casey Hawkey converted a penalty after Aaron Bicknell was brought down.
Tony Harman broke through to score a consolation goal for Pelynt in the 73rd minute.
ST DOMINICK HIT 14:
St Dominick overwhelmed St Dennis in Division One with an outstanding display giving them a 14-3 victory.
The play of the home side in the first half was the performance of dreams with some clinical finishing in front of goal where simple passes led to easy goals and saw them ease to a seven-goal lead.
The second half at least gave the visitors three goals in reply, but they were also hit by another seven by the irresistible hosts.
Corey Nesbitt score four goals with Karl Whitehead hitting a hat trick. Connor Pritchard-Lee and Frazer Ferris added a brace apiece with Ian Rogers, Scott Coombe and Dan Snowden completing the rout.
Two promotion contenders met at North Petherwin in a fine game of football. Petherwin were outstanding in the first half with their slick movement far too much for Grampound.
Josh Sanders gave them the lead with Kenny Channing adding a second before the break.
The second half was a different affair with Grampound on top and right back in the match when goals from Hayden Boxall and Lee Budge drew them level.
Petherwin hit back strongly as they regained their first half form in the final ten minutes and two minutes into added time Joe Reeve struck to give them a 3-2 win.
Altarnun stormed the Calstock goal in their Division One clash, but were unable to break their opponents down and then fell behind against the run of play when Phil Symons stroked home a free kick.
Wayne Francome equalised from close range just before half time and then the hosts hit two quick goals midway through the first half.
A good move in midfield involving Sam Smith ended with Danny Moore hitting a fine strike from twenty yards and Francome scored his second close range goal.
Luke Williams came on as substitute to score the Altarnun fourth with Sam Smith completing a 5-1 win with a shot from the edge of the box.
Padstow United for various reasons finally opened their season with an 8-4 defeat of Edgcumbe.
In a very entertaining game at Jury the home side kicked off and soon put their opponents under pressure but for all their efforts they could not find the goal there play deserved.
Edgcumbe came back at Padstow and threatened on a couple of occasions. Padstow finally took the lead through Lee Gallagher when he latched onto a loose ball to give the stand in keeper no chance.
It soon became two when Kyle Tippet found the back of the net after a slip by the defender. Some great interchange play from Kyle Tippet and Sean Blows saw Blows hit an unstoppable shot that curled into the top corner.
Edgcumbe hit back when they broke and James Carhart beat the home keeper from close range. Padstow hit back immediately when a great cross from skipper Tom Hull found Johnny Murt at the far post who rose unchallenged to power his header past the stranded keeper.
The home team came out of the blocks flying after the restart and quickly put the game to bed when they scored three goals from Tippet, Gallagher and Murt in a 10-minute spell.
Edgcumbe to their credit continued to work hard and they were rewarded with goals from Luke Jones, Lee Shepherd and Luke Webb although Padstow would be disappointed with their defending from set pieces.
Padstow rounded the scoring off when Jay Tipton was fouled in the box and Tom Hull scored from the resulting penalty.
GUNNISLAKE WIN ON ROAD:
Gunnislake picked up a first win in Division Two and from their longest journey as they won 3-1 at Gerrans & St Mawes United.
Glen Tremblett, Kieren Jasper and Ben Farrar scored for Gunnislake with Josh Kendall replying.
Michael Steele gave LC Phoenix a 5th minute lead at St Breward and that goal deflated the hosts from the start. Only Ben Nurse in goal and young centre-back Scott Burke denied the visitors any more goals before the break.
Josh Barron added a second after the restart with Steele getting a second and Darren Webber making the final score 4-0 to Phoenix.
Premier Sixes kept up their 100 per cent start with a 3-1 win over an impressive AFC Bodmin side.
When the home keeper pulled out shortly before the game, Dan Code went in goal and when he collided with the centre half, Jason Willis rolled the ball into an empty net.
Sixes have this remarkable record of scoring in last 62 matches and with the leagues inform striker in the team, this record is always likely to be extended so up stepped Martyn Probert to hit two goals before the break and give the hosts an unlikely lead.
The second half saw Bodmin at their best and some bizarre goalkeeping was not helping the hosts cause.
A change was made and this stabilised the home side a lot more and then with ten minutes to go Probert struck again for his hat trick and a 3-1 win.
HILL STAY UNBEATEN:
North Hill beat Welcome Inn 3-1 to stay unbeaten in Division Three. Chris Rockell scored a brace with Jason Ridgment adding the hosts' other goal.
Paul Perkins put through his own goal for the Welcome consolation.
Stoke Climsland were in impressive scoring form beating St Stephen reserves 7-1. Alex Mortimore scored a hat trick with Ben Jeffery adding a brace.
Grant Mace and Tom Cleveland completed the home scoring with Jamie Bullock getting the visitors' consolation.
Queens Rangers and St Neot drew one apiece. Rob Hambly scored for Queens with Jamie Eldridge replying.
Camelford won 5-2 at Callington Town. Jamie Rowland and Martin Hunn scored for Callington with Camelford taking the points with a Shaw brace and John Harris and Craig Thompson also amongst the visitors' scorers.
MEVA OFF THE MARK:
Mevagissey won their first game of the season in Division Four with Ryan Lavery and Dan Brady hitting a brace apiece in a 5-3 win at Tregony.
Sam Blount completed the visitors' scoring with Andy Barnes, Alex Pearce and Kieran Davey replying for Tregony.
Shaun Keeble scored a brace with Adam Price adding another goal as Tintagel beat Roche 3-1. Andy Geach replied for Roche.
There was sweet revenge in Division Five as Pelynt reserves overturned last week's defeat at Par Track to defeat Royal Par 6-1.
Dave Allsey gave Pelynt a 10th minute lead with Matt Baker adding a second five minutes later. Ryan Oxley put clear day light between the teams with a third in the 25th minute.
Lewis Sweetman added a fourth with James Shead getting a fifth five minutes before half time. Pelynt went further ahead with Oxley's second before Dean Dingle grasped the visitors' consolation.
St Merryn put in a powerful performance when beating St Minver reserves 5-1.
In truth the scoreline could have been even greater and St Minver were a little fortunate with a contested penalty from Connor Bridgway giving them a consolation goal.
Luke Worrall scored a brace for St Merryn with Ben Farrant, Kevin Allen and Calvin Powell adding further goals.
Scott Bennett scored a brace as St Teath beat St Mawgan reserves 3-0. Mike Titchin completed the scoring.
Richard Gibson and Dayne Nodder scored a brace apiece as Standard Inn won 7-1 at Boscastle reserves. Nick Clarke, Curtis Evans and Shane Gomery completed the tally. Boscastle's only high spot was a Darren Hambly goal.
Southgate Seniors beat Tregrehan Mills 2-0 with Andy Terry and Nathan Farrer hitting the target.
James Prieton-East scored a hat trick as Godolphin Atlantic reserves won their first league game of the season, recovering from a 2-1 deficit at half time to beat St Newlyn reserves 5-3.
Jack Scott and Danny Murphy added their other goals with Dan Menhenitt, Dan Hughes and Jamie Payne replying for Newlyn.
