St Merryn 0 LC Phoenix 6

Launceston College Phoenix dominated St Merryn throughout the 90 minutes of this third round county cup tie. Dave Sharpe opened the day’s account with an instinctive strike in the opening 15 minutes and new signing Nathan Cox scored a brace in the first half as Phoenix squeezed St Merryn across the park. And yet St Merryn might have taken the lead if they’d converted a penalty awarded for hand ball in the opening two minutes.

However, this was simply not St Merryn’s day. Other debutant, Ryan Julian, scored early in the second half; a fine looping shot beyond the stranded goalkeeper. Then goal scorer Sharpe turned provider when his low drive was parried into the path of returning player, Harry Marsh, who coolly dispatched the ball from close range. St Merryn struggled with the movement of the Phoenix midfield and forward line, a frustration that culminated in a series of free kicks that did nothing to help the home team establish their rhythm.

Indeed it came as no surprise that Phoenix were awarded a penalty in the closing minutes of the game, when another fine move found Paul Daymond in space in the area; the resulting foul was undoubtedly a penalty, even if the red card was more questionable. Nathan Cox smashed the ball into the top corner to claim his deserved hat trick.

Stithians 6 .v. Holman SC Res 3

Game lost in the 1st half with the hosts going in 6 - 0 up. Early exchanges were 50-50 but a neat finish from the home striker started the ball rolling and Holman couldn't deal with Stithians repeatedly getting the ball into our box. The second goal was a poor one to concede with the Stithians no.9 having far too much time to hit the net. The other 4 goals to be fair were soft from our point of view. The positive point is that we kept a clean sheet in the second half! We played much better and fashioned a number of chances. Neil Pitt scored with a header before Scott Robinson topped off a superb 2nd half performance with 2 strikes from within the 18yd box. Good luck to Stithians in the next round, maybe we can reverse the scoreline when we host Stithians in the Percy Stephens cup next Saturday.

Padstow 2 v Torpoint 6

The holders deservedly go through to the next round thanks in part to some very generous Padstow defending.

Not much in it for the first 20 minutes and then things went from bad to worse as the home side contributed to their own downfall by conceding 3 goals in quick succession

due to some very poor defending.

The holders were able to relax and grew in confidence after this and added to their total just before halftime.

Padstow got on to the score sheet following some poor defending from the oppositions left back when his poor pass was collected by Jake Charles and his through ball was neatly put away by Sean Blows

Torpoint then made it 5 just seconds before the halftime whistle; game over!

The home side came out for the second half playing for pride but were still in the changing rooms as the holders went further in front with their first attack of the half following a corner with

the Padstow defence still back in the changing rooms.

Padstow then 'rolled their sleeves up' and started to compete again but it was too little too late!

They added a second when Simon Press finished off a neat passing move.

The home side then held their own throughout the second half but they came up against a very good Torpoint side.

It will take a good side to stop them going all the way again this season.

Good luck to the Torpoint lads in the next round; They have a good bunch of lads and we hoped they enjoyed the after match food?

Hope the lad who went off with the ankle injury is OK?

Madron 3 Rosudgeon 2

Cracking performance from my lads today battled from minute 1 to minute 90 from 1 to 14, showed what we can be capable of at times.

must firstly mentioned our opponents who certainly play the game the way it should be played a cracking passing allround footballing side who i think will still challenge for cups this year, good luck to tom and his lads for the rest of the season. finally must give the ref full credit got some stick at times in a fiesty local derby but did a great job.

Well done St Newlyn East!

What a great disciplined performance probably the best I've seen in 5 years. Hit by 5 first team players dropping out due to injury and illness, only had one sub, but given a game plan by the manager which was followed to the letter. Credit to the manager and hats off to the team. Good luck to Goonhavern nice bunch of lads.

Goonhavern 1 - 2 St. Newlyn East

Home side 1 - 0 up through a well worked goal, starting with a throw-in on the left, finally converted by Ian Gosling (roughly 25mins), before squandering a few good openings to increase the lead, only away shot in the first 35 mins coming from a through ball which was scuffed wide by (Dent?). Another through ball then led to a clear penalty for Newlyn with the Goonhavern keeper booked for the collision with the away striker, who just reached the ball first. Penalty duly converted by (?) (H-T: 1-1). Home team upped the tempo at the start of the 2nd half to create several more openings, and looked like the only possible winners, but could not convert their chances. With approx. 10 mins left Newlyn won a free kick down the right which the home side failed to clear & was smashed home by an unmarked forward at the back post. Goonhavern continued to press against a resolute defence & should have had a penalty when Gosling was fouled 6 yards from goal in injury time, but for the ref, who produced a yellow card for diving. (haha £10 please). Best of luck to Newlyn East for the next round, & in fairness the ref was fine but for the one glaring mistake.

Very good ref. But if your going to get into it then two errors. Your goalkeeper should have been sent off just for the tackle let alone denying a goal scoring opportunity. Denty had to come off because of that tackle . So arguably two errors which seemed to have cancelled each other out. But again I was very impressed with the ref, second week in a row we have had a superb official.

St.Just 2-5 Illogan (HT 2-1)

By no means does this scoreline reflect this game, and in normal circumstances Illogan would not be in the next round of this cup!

The first half St.Just dealt with the pressure from a strong Illogan side well, who only managed to get to our 18 yard box before any chances were stiffled out.

But on the break the St.Just side were far better, with Scott Meagor, Stefan Smith & Joe Sturgeon causing problems.St.Just took the lead with a outstanding 30-yard freekick by Stefan Smith. 5 Minutes later Scott Meagor pounced on the Illogan Goalkeepers miskick, and managed to lob from 20 yards to double St.Justs lead with 20 minutes gone. It could've been 3-0 soon after when Joe Sturgeon beat the defence but the goalkeeper made up for his earlier errors.

On roughley 35 minutes, a deliberate handball outside the penalty box stopping a futher St.Just goal by the Illogan kepper gave the referee no option but to send him off. With 5 minutes to go in the first half Illogan, having plenty of corners but no shots on goal, finally had a breakthrough when Sam Nicholls failed to tackle on the edge of the box, allowing a fierce shot at goal. The shot was well saved by Scott Rowe, however Illogan were quicker to react and tapped in the rebound. Half time was 2-1 and Illogan were lucky to only be going in 1 goal down!

Second half Illogan were a lot stronger, and were putting more pressure on a St.Just side that unbelievably have not been fixtured a game for 5 weeks!!!! With 15 minutes into the second half played, an elbow infront of the referee by Illogan's Curly (who had already been booked for mouthing off to the ref) gave the referee once again no option, and put them down to 9 men.

With 20 minutes to go and St.Just 2-1 up against 9 men, the game should be over. In normal circumstances, it would've been. However due to first team call ups, suspensions and injuries St.Just only had a bare 11. Illogan seized on the opportunity making St.Just look like the side with 9 players due to tiredness from lack of games and inexperience amongst the team.

Illogan who have been there and done it plently of times before, put on constant pressure and equalised with a great effort from the edge of the box, with 15 minutes left to play.

At 2-2 St.Just were still in it, and had a rare opportunity fall to Sam Capstick 18-yards out with the goal keeper grounded - he only had to put it on target - but the shot dragged wide. That was St.Just's last hope, and from then on they looked like a boxer who had gone 12 rounds and were dead on their feet! Illogans fitness and football ability took it's toll and soon went 3-2 up, and then added with a further 2 goals in the last 3 minutes.

Good luck to Illogan in the next round, but as they all know, they had somebody shining down on them in this game!

I agree 5-2 definately flattered us but I also would say thats a slightly biased report as well.

Alan for a start in goal never deserved to be sent off as my understanding of the rule was if the player is going away from goal and there are 2 players also covering, he shouldn't be sent off?

It was a very scrappy game and certainly 1st half we just never got going made worse by 1 fantastic free kick which there was nothing we could do about and then a rare mistake by alan setting up your forward to chip in.

But the never say die attitude of the squad and the fact we can make 3 changes and not weaken the side means we are always in any game even if we have only 9 men.

All the best for the season if they ever fixture you boys another game.

What opportunity did Illogan seize upon? The opportunity to run harder, tackle more, play against 2 more players? How many straws did you manage to collect with that massive clutch!!?
