Football: South West Peninsula League division one round-up October 16
STICKER slipped to a second consecutive league defeat as two goals from veteran striker Matt Shiels earned Mousehole a 2-1 victory which saw the Seagulls leapfrog their opponents into top spot in Division One West.
The Seagulls opened the scoring in the fourth minute when Owain Barrett's corner was headed back across goal for Shiels to turn and volley home from 10 yards.
Sticker recovered from this early setback but found it difficult to break down a resolute home defence.
And it was Mousehole who increased their lead after 25 minutes when full back Matt Laity's free kick from halfway was headed clear, only for the ball to fall invitingly to Shiels whose first time effort took a wicked deflection in off Sticker player manager Andrew Avery.

Sticker created some good openings in the second half without seriously troubling home keeper Dexter King, and only some great saves from Sticker's Ryan Holland prevented more goals for a Mousehole side who have now won nine consecutive league matches.
Sticker will be keen to return to winning ways at Truro City this Saturday (3pm).
Callington moved up to fourth in the table after a 4-0 victory over bottom side Foxhole. Sam Stevens scored a goal in each half (21 & 72 minutes) with other goals added by Mike Lewis (47) and Steve Kidd (51).
It would have been a much bigger margin of victory but for some heroics from man of the match Dan Peters in the Foxhole goal.
Wadebridge Town bounced back from their midweek defeat at Porthleven by beating Truro City Reserves at Treyew Road.
Although Paul Menhinick put the Bridgers ahead in the 42nd minute, the match didn't all go their way as Andy Bowker equalised on the stroke of half-time and then Ashley Smeeth fired Truro in front ten minutes into the second half.
But Charlie Barnes equalised after 71 minutes and with only two minutes to go Micky Rowles-Jane was on hand to score the winner.
Second from bottom Bude Town enjoyed their best away day so far this season by battling for a 1-1 draw at mid-table Porthleven.
Bude even took the lead after 24 minutes with a Jed McCardie own goal, although they held it for only 14 minutes before Sam Kay equalised.
One blot on the Bude copybook was the 87th minute dismissal of Jan Allen for a second yellow card.
Dobwalls' inconsistent start continued as third-placed Penryn beat them 3-1 at Lantoom Park.
The visitors established a 3-0 lead with 20 minutes to go thanks to goals from Sean Johnson (35), Russell May (66) and Dale Band (69). Martyn Hake's 78th minute penalty was only a consolation for Dobwalls.
St Dennis were also beaten at home, 3-1 by Holsworthy, whose goals came from Jason Cordice (25 & 79) and Nick Aplin (68).
The Saints' reply came in the 71st minute from Mark Rowe, who was later sent off for a high challenge.
