Football: Duchy League review, October 16
Cornwall Junior Cup
HEARTBREAK FOR MEVA:
Mevagissey came very close to putting to an end the Cornwall Junior Cup ambitions of area favourites Saltash United with the visitors scoring twice in added time to snatch a 4-3.
It was all Saltash in the first half with the home team unable to get out of their half. The visitor's domination was rewarded with two goals.

The first from Tom Jane in the 30th minute with Lee Hawkins adding a second in the 39th minute.
Saltash were again on top for the first five minutes of the second half, and in desperation Mevagissey made a couple of substitutions which changed the face of the game.
One of the substitutes Dan Kendall pulled a goal back in the 53rd minute with Ryan Lavery equalising four minutes later.
Saltash regained the ascendancy, but were then stunned three minutes from time when Matt Chesterfield put the hosts ahead.
With the game going into added time Tony Jane equalised with a free kick, and then with the home team waiting for extra time, the game had a final twist with Ryan Tetley scoring to put Saltash through.
Torpoint Athletic beat Polperro 3-2 in another first round tie. Played at the Mill in front of a decent crowd of 80, Torpoint took a 37th minute lead when following a goalmouth scramble, a Polperro defender put through his own net.
Three minutes later Will Dunstone headed over the keeper from 15 yards to double the advantage.
Polperro gained a lifeline when Sam Lane scored with a fine 25 yard strike, but another own goal in the 63rd minute restored the host's two-goal advantage.
Lane scored his second ten minutes from time with another distant strike, but Torpoint were able to hold on for their win.
St Dominick have been in sparkling form this season with their young team scoring at will, but they found things very difficult at Division Five Tregrehan Mills.
Overall they put in a sloppy performance before finally running out 4-2 winners. Scott Coombe, Corey Nesbit, an Adam Keith penalty and Sam Ticehurst scored a goal apiece.
Delabole United had a 4-1 win over Morwenstow of the North Devon League with Mike Barrett getting all four goals. Jimmy Williams scored a late consolation for the visitors.
North Petherwin were too strong for Stoke Climsland going through with a 6-2 win.
Stoke were well in the match in the early stages of the second half before the visitors ran away with the result. Callum Reeve, Joe Reeve and Josh Sanders all scored a brace apiece for North Petherwin with Tom Cleveland and Alex Mortimore replying.
Veryan were rather flattered by their 5-1 win at Sticker, but it was still an impressive performance against a club two divisions higher.
Martin O'Callaghan scored their first, which was followed by a brace from Bobby Lee-Johns, one from the spot. Justin Trebilcock and Craig Phillips completed their scoring. The home consolation came from Zak Brokenshire.
Premier Sixes beat Tintagel 7-2, but the game was much closer than the score suggests and they were trailing for 20 minutes.
After falling behind and taking time to recover, two Martyn Probert goals and one each from Joe Harvey and Josh Mitchell had Sixes 4-1 up at half time.
Tintagel reduced the arrears after the break, but then were hit by a lot of misfortune. Sixes' fifth came from an unlucky own goal and the last two both lobbed in by Dan Code were also a little fortunate with the second one coming when the centre half knocked the ball out of the keepers hand and it fell conveniently to Code.
LANE SPOT ON FOR PENSILVA
Pensilva reserves and St Cleer reserves drew 5-5.
St Cleer were 4-2 up at half time and stretched the lead further when ex Pensilva player Zak Peel scored his second. Liam Donaghy also scored a brace with Darren Harvey scoring once.
Pensilva fought back to gain a point with their equaliser coming from an Arron Lane penalty in the last two minutes.
Pensilva's other goals came from Andy Cobb, a Jacob England shot that deflected in off Saints Kyle Tamblyn, Leighton Mitchell and England with a shot from 40 yards.
NINE FOR NORTON:
In his first appearance of the season, Steve Norton hit nine goals as St Mawgan won the battle of the two pointless clubs against St Newlyn East 15-2.
St Mawgan had only scored once in four previous games. Jamie Lawrence added a brace with Jamie Phillips, Ben Atherton, Kevin Pearce and Mike Richardson adding a goal apiece.
There was a humbling home defeat for Boscastle reserves. Kevin McHugh scored five goals and James Prieton-East added a hat trick as Godolphin Atlantic reserves won 11-3.
Dylan Rodgers, Jack Scott and Harry Tilston completed the visitors' tally. Martin Seldon replied with a brace for Boscastle with Darren Hambly adding their other goal.
An incredible 50 goals were scored in the four scheduled league games as the remaining match ended with St Minver reserves defeating Pelynt reserves 7-2.
Pelynt played the first half with ten men with their other player turning up at half-time so they were facing an uphill battle.
They came out fired up and directed a lot of the play through the middle which made it difficult for the home side.
The scoring was opened up by Conor Bridgway for the home side followed quickly by his second.
Martin Haynes slotted home the third in the bottom corner with Brian Kelly, the home side's captain, scoring a 30 yards driver into the top corner for the fourth.
Pelynt started the better side in the second half. The goals came from Dave Allsey and a free kick taken by their captain Paul Boxall, headed in by a home team defender, made it 4-2.
St Minver responded with a brace from Jason Keatley and Conor Bridgway made it 7-2 completing his hat trick.
Credit has to go to the away team as they never gave up, but the home side took advantage of their extra numbers.
