Duchy League - Saturday Feb 18 2017

Premier division - LC Phoenix 5 - 1 Saltash Utd

Another three points in the bag for league leaders Phoenix to keep a little pressure on title favourites St Minver whose fixtures are building up as they are still involved in both the Junior & Knock Out Cups.

Saltash didn't really perform today and lady luck didn't shine on them either. A freakish own goal in the opening minutes got them off to a bad start and on the half hour they conceded the sort of penalty that will be waved away on another day.. A cracking 40 yard drive possibly, from Kevin Hatch, put Phoenix 3 nil up at the break.

Ten minutes into the second period it was 4 nil , a nicely worked move ending with a Matt Stainer header maybe, and game over but the visitors kept their spirits and deservedly pulled one back.

A second penalty late on took the score to a slightly flattering 5 - 1.

Good entertaining game on a bobbly pitch, no hassle, Richard Butter in complete control.

Tintagel 2 - St Newlyn East 2

Tough game for the visitors as Tintagel's forward roughed up their defence and took an early 2-0 lead. A clever change of formation from Newlyn with Will Perry man marking the "bruiser" out of the game allowed the visitors to take control. Tintagel hung on for a point - Newlyn missed a hat full...

Newlyn MOM - Will Perry: Take a bow son.

st Dennis league to lose now. I hope you can knock Veryan off there perch. They don't seem as strong anymore now they stepped up to div 1.

Give Veryan some credit. They went on hell of an unbeaten run which I doubt will be done again. And i would say they are at least a definite for a runners up spot. They will end up in the Premier where they should be. St Dennis will probably take the title. Only problem is you'll never hear the end of it from Grosey if they do win it! ?

its been an amazing run. It definitely wont be repeated. Its nice to see they have found it tougher this year. But they will make senior football in a couple years.

JJ Jones Duchy League

Foxhole has taken the one remaining place in the quarter-finals of the KMD Developments KO Cup. They caused a minor upset beating Torpoint Athletic 4-3 at Goverseth Park to set up a home quarter final against North Petherwin. Foxhole left it late after trailing at one stage they fought back and scored the winner at the death with the game set for extra time. Lee Reed-Bennett scored a brace although he also conceded an own goal. The other Foxhole goals came from Dave Kitson and Nathan Pappionannou. The Torpoint goals were scored by Byron Robbins and Ben Bond.

St Minver fell behind in their Premier Division clash at North Petherwin but fought back to secure an important 5-1 win. Marius Pislabu put the hosts ahead from a free kick. Ryan Pooley equalised from the spot after Paul Menhinick was brought down in the box and shortly after Petherwin had a player sent off. Pooley converted a Steve Wootton cross in the 50th minute to put St Minver ahead and ten minutes later Wootton curled the ball into the top corner for their third. Menhinick rounded the keeper for their fourth with Will George completing the scoring late on.

LC Phoenix has put Saltash United’s title aspirations firmly on the back burner after a 5-1 victory in their top of the table clash. A freakish own goal in the opening minutes got the visitors off to a bad start and on the half hour they conceded a penalty which was converted by Nathan Cox. A forty yard drive from Kevin Hatch put Phoenix three up at the break. A nice move from the hosts resulted in the fourth ten minutes after the restart from Darren Webber. Saltash kept their spirits and deservedly pulled a goal back through Luke Trevaskus but another Cox penalty gave the hosts a slightly flattering margin.

St Stephen were in imperious form at Biscovey winning 10-2. The home side were just unable to contain the visitors attacking force with Courtney Rowe scoring five goals and Craig Coad four. Joe Stone got the other St Stephen goal with Alex Woodcock and Chris Burns getting the home consolation goals.

Edgcumbe hit Callington Town for eleven goals without reply. Jay Boyle and Sean Heward both hit hat tricks. The scoring was completed by Lee Shepherd, Charlie Lawrie, Oli Brooks, Cameron Ross and an own goal.

Division One leaders Veryan has lost again, beaten 4-3 at Gunnislake. The home side played out of their skins and has now put a fifth successive Veryan championship in jeopardy. Liam Bryant scored a brace with Kieren Jasper and Chris Parsons scoring one apiece for Gunnislake. Veryan replied through Dan Vincent, and a Derrick Lucas brace.

St Dennis are the biggest dangers to Veryan’s title hopes and they kept the pressure high with a 5-3 win at Holywell/Cubert Athletic. The visitor’s scorers were Jordi Willmott (2), Richard Hawke, Scott Hill and Paul Rowe.

Gerrans & St Mawes United won 3-0 at Grampound. They were on top for most of the game. Harry Wilshaw went through four tackles and rounded the keeper for the opener after fifteen minutes. Gerrans got their second just before half time through Charlie Jones. Grampound had their best spell after the restart and were aggrieved when a handball in the area was not seen by the referee. Inevitably the visitors broke quickly and Wilshaw scored his second to put the game out of reach.

Hayden Turner scored a brace in his debut to help St Mawgan to a 4-1 derby win at St Columb Major. Stuart Harris and Alex Coles were the other St Mawgan scorers with Craig Allen getting the hosts consolation.

Sticker still hold outside promotion hopes and a Connor Paine strike helped their cause with the only goal of the game at AFC Bodmin. There were plenty of divots on a rough Dragon Centre pitch to make life difficult for any free flowing football. Both sides cancelled each other out in the first half although Matt Searle missed a gilt edged chance for the visitors. On thirty minutes Searle was tripped in the penalty area only for Connor Paine to have his spot kick saved by the goalkeeper. On the changeover the visitors upped their game and exerted much greater pressure on the home defence. Sticker created chances but no one seemed capable of hitting the back of the net. Chris Kilbey did have one shot which bounced off the crossbar and with time running down it looked as if there would be a stalemate. On eighty three minutes a free kick from Paine on the edge of the box evaded everyone to nestle in the back of the net for the only goal of the game and send Sticker home with all three points.

At the bottom a first win of the season for Altarnun. Nick Oldaker gave them a 15th minute lead at St Dominick. Oldaker scored again in the 32nd minute but shortly after St Dominick were awarded a penalty. Alex Mortimore stepped up but saw his spot kick saved. Five minutes later Oldaker completed a hat trick. Three minutes into the second half Mortimore atoned for his penalty miss with the host’s goal. St Dominick pressed hard with Ben Jeffery hitting a post but they rarely troubled the Altarnun keeper.

Godolphin Atlantic moved ever closer to the Division Two title with Ben Colquhoun scoring all three goals in a 3-1 victory at St Breward. The home side battled throughout and deserved their consolation goal scored by Martin Jago.

Unfortunately two games involving promotion chasing sides were abandoned owing to players suffering broken legs. A St Merryn player was injured at Queens Rangers on the hour forcing the referee to call a halt as they waited for an ambulance.

At St Cleer the game was abandoned in the 89th minute with St Cleer leading Tregrehan Mills through an Andy Seels goal when another suspected leg break to Mills Adam Sabine led to the Air Ambulance being deployed.

Tintagel eked a point clearer from the bottom two after drawing two all at home to St Newlyn East. Kev Jeskins and Shaun Keeble scored for Tintagel with Ross London and Martyn Probert replying.

Lifton slipped closer to the drop after losing 7-2 at home to North Hill. Lifton were the better side for the first half but made a horrible start to the second period and as heads dropped the goals flowed in. Sam Smith scored four goals with Josh Smith, Paul Wearing and Dan Moore completing the visitors tally. Paul Perkins and Tom Hancock were the home scorers.

St Minver reserves defeated Calstock 5-0 in the crucial title match between the top two clubs in Division Three. A Jason Northcott brace and goals from Adrian Ashton, Adam Bennett and Rob Centini gives the North coast club a five point lead although having played one more game.

Saltash United reserves go level on points with Calstock after securing a sixth win in seven games. They beat Pensilva 4-0 with Keiran Owen scoring twice and Jack Watts and Kingsley Arinze one each.

Gordon Douglas hit a hat trick as Gorran beat Delabole United 7-3. Dave Jones, Michael Brennan, James Rogers and Tom Guest were the other home scorers with Luke King, Lee Dungey and Dom Benney replying for Delabole.

High Street jump out of the bottom two after their 3-1 win at Tregony virtually confirms the home side’s fate. Luke Worrall was the Tregony scorer.

Lanivet Inn won 6-2 at Stoke Climsland to keep the pressure on the leading pack. Ashley Piggott got both home goals.

Dobwalls are now firm favourites for the Division Four title with Matt Bryant and Scott Corson scoring a brace apiece at St Teath in their 7-1 win. Steve Lee, Jake Baker and Sam Hummagain completed the Dobwalls tally with Craig Thompson hitting the home consolation.

Roche were 3-1 winners at St Stephen reserves. Robbie Hambly put them ahead on the half hour and Lee Tarbuck scored a second nine minutes later. A Kyle Willmott 54th minute penalty gave St Stephen hope but Hambly scored again from long range to secure the win.

Foxhole reserves’ title hopes took a knock following a 2-1 defeat at AFC Par. Richard Griffin and Peter Thomas scored for Par with Jim Penhall replying.

St Mawgan reserves look set to finish in the bottom two. A 4-0 home reverse to Rame Peninsula was their twelfth defeat in thirteen games. Luke Robinson scored a brace with Lewis White and Dayne Nodder completing the visitors tally.

Lamerton Community took a step nearer to the Division Five title after beating Liskeard Athletic 4-1. The best game by far at Lamerton this season saw the young visitors giving their more experienced opponents a fine game. Experience told in the end with Tim Westcott, Nathan Panter, Dan Behennah and Ben Pridham scoring for Lamerton. Jordan West replied for Liskeard.

St Eval Spitfires put some recent setbacks behind them to beat Lostwithiel reserves 4-3. Jon Summerfield scored a brace and Darren Roose and Jon Rosevear one apiece for St Eval. Lostwithiel replied through Aaron Honey (2) and Lee Collings.

Wadebridge Town had their promotion hopes hit by a two goal defeat at Looe Town. Max Anderson and Ian Thomas were the home marksmen.

Liam Cairns scored six goals as Southgate Seniors won ten nil at St Anns Chapel. Sam Wade, Nathan Farrer, Brandon Stott and Jack Swanson completed the rout.
