Football: Cornishman Carlsberg SWPL round-up (December 5)
MOUSEHOLE extended their lead at the top to six points after a 3-1 win at lowly Perranporth on Saturday.
The Seagulls produced another impressive performance against an improving Pilchards outfit who made Mousehole work hard for a 13th successive league win.
The visitors dominated the first half, but only had Matt Shiels tap in to show for it.
Wade Brown was a constant threat for Mousehole and could of notched a hat-trick by half-time. Those missed chances were punished as Perranporth equalised within five minutes of the restart, Reg Pearson latching on to Ian Gosling's through ball to score off the inside of the post.
However, Mousehole came on strong again with Brown regaining their lead on the hour with a fine strike from the edge of the box, before the same player put the game to bed ten minutes from time with a cool one-on-one finish.
Mousehole: D King, M Laity, W Quinn, S Stevens, O Barrett, J Simmonds, M Vercesi (c), S Burt, N Pugliese, M Shiels, W Brown. Subs: K Turner (for Simmonds), E Chapman (for Shiels), M Moon (for Pugliese).
Dobwalls kept their second straight clean sheet with a 3-0 success at home to Penzance.
Dan Lawrence provided the final touch to put the hosts in front after 13 minutes.
But it wasn't until ten minutes from time that Dobwalls put the game beyond the Magpies when Simon Skews, having earlier hit the bar, saw his next effort creep inside the post.
In the 85th minute Martyn Hake scored Dobwalls' third goal with a fine effort into the top corner.
Penryn's Gregg Hobbs struck in the second half to deny Sticker victory at Burngullow Park.
This was second-placed Sticker second successive 1-1 draw and their third game without a win. It had started well for the hosts as Andrew Butler swept home Jack Walker's pass after ten minutes.
But Hobbs' goal five minutes after the break was enough to earn Penryn a point much to the frustration of the hosts, who are now six points behind Mousehole, who have four games in hand.
Wadebridge claimed their fourth successive league win by ending Foxhole's recent revival with an emphatic 7-0 victory.
The Bridgers were last beaten in division one west at the beginning of October and any hopes Stars had of a third straight win were over once James Cudmore scored his side's opener in the 28th minute.
Charlie Barnes added a second minutes later, before goals from Paul Menhinick and Nick Dowling put Wadebridge 4-0 up inside 35 minutes. Barnes scored his second with a chip over Foxhole keeper Dan Peters before the break. Cudmore grabbed his second in the 50th minute before Sam Gerken's header completed the rout.
Callington still have hopes of a top two finish after inflicting more woe on pre-season title favourites Helston following a 5-1 home win.
Former Falmouth boss Alan Carey was sacked by Newquay on Tuesday, only five months after taking over at the Mount Wise club.
Newquay chairman Graham Hearnshaw said that "certain club criteria procedures had not been fully implemented and a change of direction was needed."
