Cardew leads by example with Torpoint brace
Liskeard Athletic 0 Torpoint Athletic 2
DEAN Cardew was forced to include himself in the starting line-up for the first-team since taking over as Torpoint player-manager this season and showed that he still has the scoring touch by hitting both goals in his side's win at Liskeard.
A number of players, including Brian Stacey, were ruled out to force Cardew's inclusion and he needed only a couple of minutes before scoring from a cross by lively midfielder Luke Avis-Riordan.

Liskeard battled well despite being hit by first team calls, but were unable to prevent Cardew from wrapping up the tie for Torpoint when he applied the finishing touch to more good work from Avis-Riordan on the hour.
Man of the Match: Luke Avis-Riordan (Torpoint).
Bere Alston United 3 St Dominick 1
ST DOMINICK had no complaints at their defeat by Bere Alston, who were worthy winners although there was only one goal separating the sides until the final 15 minutes.
Saints held out until the half hour when James Follett cut in from the left to fire past visiting goalkeeper Jay Richmond.
Euan McCall did well in midfield for Bere Alston, who increased their lead through Ben Stephens a quarter of an hour from the end.
Adam Kellaway kept St Dominick hopes alive with a cracking 25-yard drive two minutes later only for a slip by the otherwise impressive Sam Dyer to let in Follett, who booked Bere Alston's quarter-final tie at home to Launceston.
Man of the Match: Euan McCall (Bere Alston United).
Callington Town 2 Kilkhampton 1
CALLINGTON were rewarded with a couple of late goals after struggling to break down visiting Kilkhampton.
The visitors went ahead midway through the first half when Gary Walter converted a penalty after Nathan Bonney had been fouled by goalkeeper Steve Parker.
Callington searched for an equaliser with Steve Kidd having a lively afternoon in attack, but it looked like being a frustrating afternoon until the final quarter of an hour.
Keiran Prescott finished off some good work from Kidd and substitute Jay Martin grabbed a last gasp winner to take Callington through to a home tie against Polperro.
Man of the Match: Steve Kidd (Callington Town).
Launceston 1 Wadebridge Town 0 (aet)
A LATE strike from Ryan Crabb broke the stalemate just when it looked as if the tie would go to a penalty shoot-out.
Crabb scored the goal that takes Launceston through to a quarter final at Bere Alston when he saw his cross-cum-shot sail into the Wadebridge goal towards the end of the second period of extra-time.
It was some reward for Crabb, who had gone close to settling the tie earlier when he went close with a good header that was well saved.
Josh Harris also went close for Launceston when he saw his well-struck free kick rattle the bar.
Man of the Match: Ryan Crabb (Launceston).
Polperro 6 Millbrook 4
POLPERRO had difficulties raising a team with a number of regulars being unavailable through a variety of reasons.
Three former players were called out of retirement, including Tim Taylor, who impressed at central defence in his first game for two years.
Despite their problems, Polperro took a 4-1 interval lead with two goals each from Dominic Richardson and Dale Hooper, who both went on to complete hat-tricks in the second half.
That saw Polperro leading 6-2 before they tired in the closing stages and Millbrook came back into the game. They had two goals each from Ben Donez and James Rowe, who was sent off in the closing stages for a foul as the 'last man'.
Man of the Match: Dale Hooper (Polperro).
St Teath 1 Morwenstow 2
MORWENSTOW had to keep things tight in the closing stages as St Teath stepped up the pressure in an attempt to take the tie into extra-time.
There was little to choose between the sides in a goalless first half, but Morwenstow looked well on their way to a quarter final at home to Plymouth Parkway or Tavistock with a double strike from Norman Foster in the opening 15 minutes of the second half.
St Teath hit back with a goal from Karl Elliott 20 minutes from the end, however, and went in search of an equaliser, but the visitors held out with Richard Stains having a sound game in midfield.
Man of the Match: Richard Stains (Morwenstow).
