St Columb Major 5 - 2 Bere Alston United

Major recorded their seventh straight league victory with a five goal performance despite never really getting out of third gear with a mediocre performance at The Recreation Ground.

With in-form striker David Rabone absent, Andy Bicknell selected Dominique Engola to partner leading goalscorer Dom Roberts in attack. Major made a positive start and Engola's hesitation in front of goal in the opening thirty seconds resulted in a possible chance going astray and Adam Weller's aerial threat became apparent when his first minute header went marginally wide following a deep corner to the back post.

Major opened the scoring in the ninth minute in fortuitous fashion when Tom Hunter's left foot cross from the touchline sailed straight into the net with the away goalkeeper failing to judge the flight of the ball to give the full-back his first goal of the season. The home team were beginning to take control of the game and after a fine passage of play on twenty minutes, Engola was denied by a smart double save; the resulting cross wrong footed the defender but just eluded Dom Roberts at the far post as he looked to add to his tally for the season. Major managed to retain possession and Aaron Hawken forced another smart stop as his curling free kick was pushed around the post.

Engola's persistence paid off when he looked second best to collect a through ball, shaking off his marker to make a robust challenge on the goalkeeper to slot the ball into an empty net for Major's second. A third goal followed within five minutes when Dom Roberts collected a fine long ball from Shaun Lawrence, hesitating at first only to unleash a left-foot rocket from a tight angle leaving the goalkeeper helpless.

Aaron Hawken, who was enjoying another fine defensive performance, collected the ball in his own half, cutting through defenders as he drove goalwards having covered three quarters of the pitch. Hawken played a smart one-two with Roberts and tumbled to the ground under no pressure as he shaped to finish what would have been a contender for goal of the season.

Major conceded a soft penalty on the stroke of half-time when Jean Francois was adjudged to have clipped the heels of his marker as both players anticipated a deep cross into the box. The resulting penalty was duly dispatched and Major had offered Bere Alston a needless lifeline having dominated the first half without really having to get going.

Francois almost made amends in the opening minute of the first half when he timed his leap perfectly only to head Aaron Bicknell's curling cross straight at the goalkeeper. Engola and Roberts almost capitalised on a comical bit of defending when two Bere Alston players clattered into each other under no pressure; Bere Alston then almost pressed the self-destruct button when a long ball looked likely to head out of play, only for the defender to hack wildly at the ball, launching a clearance into his own six yard box only for Engola to see his effort blocked by the alert goalkeeper. The misery was complete moments later when the referee pointed to the spot for a needlessly high challenge on Francois that Dom Roberts dispatched, although the visiting goalkeeper will be disappointed that he didn't keep the ball out.

Major appeared comfortable in possession and Jay Tipton almost added a fifth goal when his long-range strike took a deflection, looping just over the crossbar with the goalkeeper stranded. The away team finally had their first significant opening of the game only for Anton Lake to make a comfortable save from what was a presentable goalscoring opportunity. Major almost made their opponents pay but were unable to capitalise with another fine double save preventing a further goal and Major should have been awarded a second penalty when Engola was clearly pulled back when reacting quickest to the loose ball in the area. The referee waved play on and within a matter of minutes the awarded a third penalty of the game, this time to the away side, when Weller and Lake failed to deal with an over-hit clearance from the Bere Alston goalkeeper; Lake was adjudged to have fouled the striker who capitalised on their hesitation and the penalty was dispatched to provide a scoreline that failed to reflect Major's dominance.

What could have been a difficult period ended in a relatively comfortable fashion; fine work on the right from substitute Jason Ridd found fellow replacement Lee Smith who should have done better than side-foot the ball over the bar from ten yards. Smith was unfortunate not to add a fifth when he was crudely taken out by team-mate Francois when shaping to slide home another inviting cross from Alex Bicknell.

Jay Tipton had the last word with another stunning long-range strike that smashed into the back of the net to put a little gloss on what had been a relatively routine, if not below par, performance from the home team.

Newquay Logs and Coal Man of the match - Aaron Hawken; another assured defensive display.

St Teath 1 LC Phoenix 6

Launceston College Phoenix ran riot on what must be the most immaculate pitch in north Cornwall. Matt Brookes grabbed himself four goals- the first an absolute masterclass in movement and precision passing from the Phoenix midfield and defence- and Dave Sharpe scored a brace. This was the second consecutive performance from Phoenix that showed their class and potential, with some outstanding play throughout the team. Now they need to maintain that momentum and forget the torpor that dogged earlier perfomances, because based on today's evidence they are capable of playing some very good football.

Credit must also go to Paul Daymond for stepping in to replace the injured Jack Rich; an assured presence in the goal, he commanded his defence throughout the game.

The White Hart Hotel Man of the Match Award: Matt Brookes

Mount Charles 1 5 Padstow Utd

A great win for Padstow against one of the fancied teams in the division.

For the second week running Padstow were forced into making changes with keeper Northy out with 2 broken ribs and

long term injuries for Ryan Smedley, Leigh Charles & Ant Murt missing from the squad and 3 other players unavailable due to holidays.

On a very difficult playing surface and a strong wind blowing it was difficult for either side to play good football.

Padstow had the better of the opening exchanges but could not create any real scoring opportunities.

The home side made best use of the strong wind and played the long ball really well putting the Padstow back 4 under great pressure.

On a couple of occasions the ball was not dealt with correctly and the home side could easily have taken the lead but there finishing let them down.

Dennis Easton, making his debut in the Padstow goal, gave his manager the jitters when he came a long way out of his goal to get the ball

only to get know where near it but the home side failed to capitalise on the error of judgement.

Padstow took the lead on 22 minutes when Jake Charles played the ball through to Kyle Tippett who cooly lobbed the ball over the keeper.

The lead lasted 2 minutes!

The Padstow back 4 failed to deal with one of the many long balls thrown at them and the ball fell to the no 9 who put the ball away into the right hand corner of the net.

Padstow went closest to taking the lead again when Russ McOwen’s corner found Jay Hardwick at the back post but his header went the wrong side of the bar.

H/T 1-1

Padstow made a change at halftime with Jay Hardwick moving into midfield and Simon Press moved up front to partner Tippett.

This made a big difference to Padstow as they took control of the game.

After 5 minutes of the second half a great through ball by Harry Calvesbert found Tippett and he finished in style putting the ball beyond the advancing keeper.

By now Padstow were looking the more threatening side but he game turned on a great finish by Padstow birthday boy, Simon Press.

The home keeper came way out of his goal & his clearance only found Jay Hardwick just inside the home teams half

and his chest pass was volleyed straight back by Press from just on the halfway line.

Padstow's fourth came courtesy of a real keepers clanger when the home keeper went to throw the ball out but he only managed to find the back of Tippet’s head

and the ball looped back over his head to give Tippett the most unlikely goal to secure his hat trick!

Padstow were now very much on top and could have easily scored a couple more before

Sean Blows rounded off the scoring for Padstow with a clinical finish 10 minutes from time.

A really good second half performance by the lads in ‘green’ and the victory was fully deserved as we worked our socks off right to the end.

The game was played in a great spirit by both teams and Mount Charles will be very much in the 'mix' come the end of the season.

Cheers to Derek and his boys.

Pensilva 2 - 1 Camelford

Drama.Lots of late drama.

Gutted for this result. 3 sending offs, 2 players

1 spectator. Camels ruled most of the afternoon

but couldnt net. Pensilva netted straight after halftime

Camels never stopped pushing equalising on 85 through

Kevin Rogers from the spot.This is when the match

really sparked to life.Camels tried to get the ball back

to the spot only for the pensilva keeper to throw it away

and start pushing two camelford players, resulting

in a red card for him.The ref proceeded to send off

a camels player too for just trying to get the ball.Harsh.Six on the clock

to go and blues hunting the winner.Slightly late

challenge, with.no intent, results in another push from

a pensilva player, this time no card or decision.Blues wanted

consistency from the ref and were broken with the home side

scoring after a muddle from the resulting free kick.

Final whistle bought some almost ugly scenes with pensilva

failing to take the victory graciously.Sad really they should

have been counting themselves lucky.Other sending off was a

home spectator instructing players to 'kill'. What a .

Camels need to start finding the onion bag to avoid getting

into scrapes like this.Definetely looking forward to the return

of this one.

Cup: TINTAGEL 3-6 LANIVET INN

Lanivet made hard work of this in difficult conditions. After going 2-0 up in the first 6 minutes Lanivet seemed to think the game was won already. Lanivet sat back and manged to get one more before the break to go in 3-0 up. The second half proved much harder work. Kicking up hill and into the wind Lanivet were up against a Tintagel side that came out much more determined. A good battle throughout the game between the 2 midfields with lots of hard but fair tackling. Tintagel grew with confidence and managed to pull 2 goals back to make Lanivet nervous. With Tintagel pushing for an equaliser Lanivet managed to grab another to go 4-2 up which seemed to kill Tintagel off. The game played out with Lanivet grabbing the next goal (5-2) Tintagel the next (5-3) and the last goal coming with about 5 mins left (6-3).

Well done to Tintagel who battled well throughout. Just a shame about the attitude of a couple of their players. One in particular who had been subbed and then felt the need to mouth off for the rest of the game from the sidelines. Aparently he was feeling his 'rage' building and wanted to punch someone!.... Nice lad!!

This post about the Pensilva V Camleford game couldnt be any further away from the truth, camleford only had a couple of chances on goal and needed a penalty to score. Camelford started the first 30 mins the better team but after that Pensilva dominated the game, if it wasnt for the Camelford goalie Pensilva would of had a field day in front of goal, the Camelford defence couldnt cope with the stirkers. As for the sending off's the goalie did chuck the ball away, big deal, but it was the Camelford player that got his handbag out and started it all off. After the final whistle it was just banter, the number 11 striker for Camelford had been gobbing off all game and as the final whstle went, something was said and he didnt like it and caused a scene. No doubt when hes sitting in school on monday morning he can look back and reflect on what a K**b he is and maybe should keep his mouth shout. As for the spectator getting sent off, there is no room for that in football and the matter was delt with by the refree. Maybe that report made by yourselves was written with sour grapes.

The way I saw it we threatened all afternoon we had hatfulls

of chances and felt we should have scored. Your obviously forgetting your

had the ball more than any other player and your uprights kept you in it more than

once. We have to credit your resillience and for fighting to the end shame a good

match turned sour in the last ten minutes.

You're referring to the Pensilva v Camelford match presumably?
