JJ Jones Duchy Football League from Michael Newcombe

North Petherwin reserves moved into the quarter-finals of the Trims & Windows Reserve Team Cup after an emphatic 5-1 defeat of St.Minver reserves. Sam Stockdale scored a hat trick to take him to eleven goals for the season with Dan Warring and Ryan Hancock adding a goal apiece. Ben Cross scored the visitor’s consolation.

Holders, St.Cleer reserves looked to be in charge of their tie with Pensilva leading two nil with five minutes to go through goals from Jack Mote and Andy Cobb. Just as the hosts were settling for the final whistle Pensilva struck twice to take the game into extra time, the goals coming from Adam Hicks and Barry McConnell. The extra time period saw no further scoring, but it is St.Cleer who progress to the next round after winning a penalty shoot-out 3-0.

St.Mawgan reserves who have reached the last two finals are on the march again after a 4-1 win at Pelynt reserves. Matt Lamb scored a brace with Luke Haynes and Steve Grocock completing their scoring. The host’s lone reply came off an St.Mawgan defender for an own goal.

St.Columb Major reserves won 4-1 at St.Newlyn East.

In the Cornwall Junior Cup Tintagel were beaten 5-1 at home by Altarnun. In what was a good game the difference in standards between the divisions was the deciding factor with only Martyn Cockcroft able to break the visitors defence. Tom Goslin scored a hat trick for Altarnun with Danny Moore and Sam Smith completing their tally.

Wadebridge kicked off at home to Grampound, immediately lost the ball and two slick passes later Shane Weeks gave the visitor’s the lead after only four seconds of their tie. Grampound went on for a comfortable 6-2 victory. Their second goal came with just two minutes on the clock from Martin Lloyd and this was followed by the goal of the game when Peter Thomas turned a defender a shot into the top corner. Grampound switched off at this stage with Wadebridge pulling two goals back before half time. The first came from a corner and the second was a good strike. The second half saw Grampound regain ascendancy and they strolled to their win. Will Watson came up from central defence to head in a corner and Max Varnell completed the game with a neat brace.

Delabole are through after a thrilling penalty shoot out against Veryan. Ashley Morris and Ian Bennett put Delabole two ahead, but Charlie Mooney hit back with a brace to level the scores. Tim Harris restored the host’s advantage, but with virtually the last kick of the game Gary Wheildon struck to take the game into extra time. Mooney scored a hat trick goal to give Veryan the lead for the first time, but with time running out Mac Irwin scored an equaliser at the death. Penalties followed and Delabole prevailed 7-6 to shock the highly rated visitor’s.

St.Minver took an early lead at Lostwithiel from a corner headed home by skipper Dan Witts. Shortly after Michael Kempthorne got on the end of an excellent move by Steve Wooton for the second. Jason Northcott added a third before half time. Lostwithiel contested the second half well creating more chances and even had one off the cross bar. It took second half substitute Paul Dingle to settle things for Minver with their fourth. Lostwithiel battled on and pulled back a consolation goal late in the game.

St Newlyn East 1 - 4 St. Columb Major

St. Columb Major progressed into the next round of the cup after a Luke Worrall hat-trick proved enough to contend with their Duchy Division Five rivals that were seeking to bounce back after a challenging previous weekend. Major made a positive start to the game but found the hosts resilient in defence as the visitors failed to make a breakthrough despite a series of impressive moves that centred around the retuning Simon Mitchell, John Middleditch and Steve Marsh.

Major finally capitalised upon a slick move involving Middleditch and Mitchell, with the latter playing in Luke Worrall who cut inside and buried the ball into the bottom corner for a deserved opener. Worrall then had a couple of chances to extend the lead, heading wide of the target after Middleditch had driven an inviting cross from the left. The hosts were unable to test visiting goalkeeper Eliot Clarke and it was ultimately an error from defender Michael Rabone that led to the equaliser; a poor decision to play the ball square resulted in a clear opening that was duly dispatched at the near post for an unnecessary equaliser that was against the run of play. Major continued to press and despite having healthy possession and a series of corners, there were limited meaningful opportunities created until late in the second half when a deep corner was headed back across goal by Mitchell with Rabone unable to convert from close range.

The second half offered more of the same as the visitors sought to press home the advantage and it wasn't long before a deep Adam Brenton set piece was again turned back across goal by Mitchell for Worrall to bundle the ball home from close range for his second of the game. Despite being below par after four consecutive league wins that had catapulted the newly formed side to the top of the league, Major offered a continued threat going forward and a moment of class and composure from youngster Eliot Webber resulted in a third as he neatly collected the ball, curling a fine low strike out of reach of the despairing dive of the goalkeeper. The visitors were in the ascendancy and Worrall collected his hat-trick goal courtesy of an in-swinging corner that sailed into the top corner to complete the scoring. A series of clumsy challenges resulted in the referee dishing out a number of second half bookings and the game gradually drew to a conclusion with the result settled. There was still time for Rabone, looking to atone for his earlier error, to hit a thunderous half-volley that smashed the crossbar, bouncing goalwards and away to safety with the defender then denied by a fine reflex save from the St. Newlyn East goalkeeper after Ryan Worrall had teed up another powerful goalbound effort.

Man of the match - Luke Worrall

St Newlyn East 1 St Column Major 4

A much improved St Newlyn East performance made it hard work for St Column Major to progress into the next round. After the home side fell behind, heads remained held high and they grabbed a deserved equaliser after a tackle from Phil Rowe found its way via a defensive error to Dan Mitchell who finished well, finding the bottom corner of the net. With the half time score at 1-1, there was everything to play for in the 2nd half. St Column Major scored three goals in fairly quick succession which killed the game off.

St Newlyn East remain optimistic after this more solid performance than in previous weeks and look forward to continuing with their league campaign at home next week.

Men of the match: Dan Mitchell and Murray Prater
