Impressive midfielder Ryan Crabb hit what proved to be the winner for Launceston when he converted a penalty following a foul on Kevin Hatch, but Liskeard kept battling and went close with a number of late efforts, including one from the experienced Roger Quaintance.
MoM: Ryan Crabb (Launceston).
Elburton Villa 3 St Dominick 2
ST DOMINICK were left reflecting on some basic defensive errors after returning pointless.
A misplaced defensive header let in Alex Henniker to open the scoring for Villa after half an hour and two goals in the first ten minutes of the second half saw the home side in the driving seat.
Lewis Chrimes was allowed to run on the left to double the lead and Henniker grabbed his second of the afternoon after another defensive error.
Saints rang the changes and got back into the game with goals from Gary Hird and Kevin Bashford to set up a hectic final ten minutes.
MoM: Gary Carpenter (St Dominick).
Polperro 3 Saltash United 2
POLPERRO are turning their season around after having a difficult start following promotion as last season's division one champions.
After taking only three points from their first six matches, they have now put together a run of four wins, despite falling behind at home to Saltash.
Carl Powell-Thomas put Saltash ahead on the half hour, but Polperro hit back in the second half with a penalty from Dominic Richardson following a foul on Rob Spencer, who then added a second from a cross by Richardson.
Powell-Thomas levelled for Saltash but Polperro, with Josh Thornton impressive in midfield, grabbed the winner through substitute James Morris.
MoM: Josh Thornton (Polperro).
St Teath 1 Bere Alston Utd 1
ST TEATH will be hoping they can build on a vastly improved performance that saw them pick up only their fourth point of the season.
The home side began strongly enough, taking the lead through Jamie Kay and then saw a Mark Grills penalty saved by Mark Wheeler before Karl Elliott had an effort controversially ruled offside.
Bere Alston hit back to draw level through Ben Stephens and went in search of a winner. But they were unable to find a way past Josh Grills, who turned in an impressive performance for St Teath, rated by some as the best goalkeeping display seen at the Playing Fields for a number of years.
MoM: Josh Grills (St Teath).
Tavistock 2 Callington Tn 1
CALLINGTON will consider themselves unfortunate to have been beaten by a late goal in a keenly contested local derby at Tavistock.
It was not until shortly after the interval that Tavistock broke the deadlock when James Phelps opened the scoring with a shot that went in off an upright.
Tom McHale had an impressive game in the Tavistock goal, but could not prevent Ben Langdon equalising a quarter of an hour from the end to set up a tense finish.
Ian Rooke, returning from a hamstring injury, came on for the last five minutes and grabbed the winner for the home side.
MoM: Tom McHale (Tavistock).
Wadebridge 0 Torpoint 2
TORPOINT took advantage of a couple of the chances that came their way to maintain their challenge at the top of the table with an away win over Wadebridge in a generally even game.
Brian Stacey gave Torpoint an early lead when he scored from a cross by lively midfielder Mike Roberts and Lewis Kershaw added the second around ten minutes before the interval.
Scoring opportunities were generally in short supply, although Stacey hit a post in the second half while Wadebridge were also denied by the woodwork when Dan Jennings had an effort rebound off an upright.
MoM: Mike Roberts (Torpoint).
