St Minver are within five points of winning the Premier Division title after picking up another three points without even playing. Biscovey pulled out of a fixture against the new leaders for the second time in three weeks. A sad state of affairs from a club with such a glorious history resulting in heavy fines and in total nine points deducted from their record not being enough to encourage their players to play.
St Stephen dropped two points in their battle for the title. Their game at Edgcumbe was switched to Millbrook with travellers having moved onto their pitch at Horsham. The game ended one all with Ben Cross of Edgcumbe trading goals with Matt Truscott. 
Torpoint Athletic came from a goal down to beat Lostwithiel 2-1. Nathan Gough gave the visitors a 15th minute lead. Torpoint equalised in the 48th minute when Lewis Pacey ran through and chipped the keeper. The winner came from Mike Roberts ten minutes from time. 
North Petherwin put the disappointment of their KO Cup semi-final defeat in midweek behind them to score an excellent 3-2 victory at Saltash United. Ryan Julian scored once with the ever impressive Marius Pislabu adding a brace for the visitors. Saltash replied with a brace from Adam Stiff.
At the bottom already relegated Callington Town avoided defeat for the first time this season when holding Foxhole to a three all draw. Jason Ridgment scored a brace with Ricky Coton completing the Callington tally. Gary Dyer, Jack Nancarrow and Richard James replied for Foxhole. 
St Columb Major did all they can to secure their place in Division One after beating already relegated Altarnun 4-0. In this their last game St Columb now must wait for Grampound to play their remaining games to decide their future. Scott Taylor, Jack Hipwell, Scott Wheadon and Dave Dowling all scored to give a good finish to a difficult season. 
St Dominick are safe after beating AFC Bodmin 3-2. Aaron Sturdy and Matt Hooper scored for Bodmin. St Dominick won with goals from James Moon, Ben Jeffery and the winning strike from Alex Mortimore. 
In the race for the title Gerrans & St Mawes United moved up to second after their 4-0 win at Gunnislake. GSM scored in the 15th minute and followed it with two other quick goals as they put in a dominant performance. Ben Ringrose scored a brace with Charlie Jones and Rory Jarvis adding a goal apiece. 
St Dennis remain favourites and picked up another three points on the leaders after defeating Holywell/Cubert Athletic 6-2. Jordi Willmott hit a hat trick with Paul Rowe, Gary Tippett and Lee Rickard completing the St Dennis tally. Ash Williams and Josh Busby replied for Holywell. 
North Hill boosted their promotion hopes in Division two with Sam Smith scoring a hat trick as they thrashed Tregrehan Mills 8-2. Blair Vanstone, Stuart Coles, Danny Moore, Paul Breyley and Paul Perkins were the other home scorers. Tregrehan who won at champions Godolphin last week pulled goals back through Brandon Chapman and Dean Dingle. 
Boscastle moved level on points with second placed Queens Rangers after beating St Cleer 2-1 and still remain the favourites for the second promotion slot. Martin Heal and James Bosley scored for Boscastle with Andy Seels replying. 
St Merryn won 4-3 at St Newlyn East with kelvin Hayes getting an 87th minute winner for the visitors. Mike Shearer put St Merryn into a 5th minute lead with Martyn Probert equalising and then scoring a second to give Newlyn a 2-1 half time lead. Shearer drew the match level but Ross London restored the home lead. Probert had a hat trick goal ruled out when the referee was a little too quick on the whistle awarding a foul whilst not expecting the player to score. St Merryn capitalised on this stroke of luck with Jack Bray equalising with Hayes then getting the late clincher. 
 Mevagissey are off the bottom on goal difference after beating St Breward 4-2 to revive hopes of avoiding relegation. Ryan Morcom scored a brace with Paddy Crowle and Sam Bray completing the home tally. St Breward replied through Matt Hooper and Ben French. 
North Petherwin reserves reignited hopes of avoiding relegation from Division Three after defeating High Street 5-2.  Chris Bruton scored two goals to put the hosts in a commanding position. Andy Sleeman headed them further ahead before Stuart Kesson-Smith with a fine strike and Ryan Best reduced the deficit to just one goal at half time. Bruton was unlucky to have an effort ruled out before the break to deny him a hat trick. Dan Hancock scored after the restart to give Petherwin a two-goal advantage and at the death Ryan Howard scored the fifth although he looked well offside in scoring. 
Relegated Tregony secured their first win of the season winning 4-3 at Grampound reserves to leave the home side still in danger of the drop. Tregony went ahead when Julian Woodman put through his own net. Darren Mortimore levelled only for Scott Laughton to restore the visitors lead with a free kick from out wide. Shaun Pickering and Owen Trudgen then scored to increase the visitor’s advantage. Grampound hit back with a Hadyn Boxall volley and Mortimore getting his second and right at the death they had a goal disallowed. 
Lanivet Inn are promoted after a nervy 2-1 win over Stoke Climsland. The first half was goalless with James Charlton giving the visitors the lead five minutes into the second half. Lanivet equalised within a few minutes when Connor Mewton netted from a quickly taken free kick. This was a competitive game with the Stoke keeper a little busier but few chances overall. With a draw looking likely Mewton was brought down near the end in the box and Dave Crawford fired in the vital penalty winner. 
Gorran consolidate third with a 3-1 win over a Pensilva side playing their fourth game in eight days. Tom Guest. Dave Jones and Paul Read scored for Gorran with Liam Donaghy replying for Pensilva. 
Dobwalls confirmed promotion and are just one point away from the Division Four title after beating Lanreath 3-1 and can wrap it up on Tuesday evening when they play Rame Peninsula. Dobwalls scored through penalties from James Colwill and Matt Bryant with Sam Hummagain getting their other goal. 
St Stephen reserves won 1-0 at St Dennis reserves. St Stephen won a poor game with a goal scored in the 1st minute when Anouri Jamal headed across the keeper Kieran Broadfield into the far corner of the net from Reece Willmott’s cross. 
Lamerton Community are promoted from Division Five and just one point away from the title after their 2-1 win at Looe Town. The home scorer was Max Anderson. 
St Eval Spitfires won 1-0 at Week St Mary with Bradley Old getting the only goal to remain second. 
Liskeard Athletic the only team with a mathematical chance of pipping Lamerton beat Lostwithiel reserves 2-0 with George Delamare getting both goals. 
Ladislav Andrashazi hit a hat trick as Wadebridge Town beat Polperro 6-1. Joe Young, Ollie Bate and Jordan Stone completed the home scoring with Macauley Andrews-Jones getting the visitors consolation. 
Southgate Seniors were clear winners beating Boscastle reserves 7-1. Liam Cairns and Brandon Ambrose scored a brace apiece. Adam Scott, Jack Whitehouse and Brandon Stott completed the home tally with Martyn Sampson getting the visitors consolation.

St Columb picked up a vital 3 points in their relegation battle against already doomed Altarnun in the home team's last game of the season. The first goal was a penalty after 3 minutes, but after having a second penalty saved, it took until 85' to see the second and then two extra goals in injury time made the result more representative of the amount of domination and possession they held during the game.

St Columb are by no means safe, but if my maths are right, this result puts the pressure on Grampound to pick up 8 points from their remaining 5 games, and St Dominick to get 2 points from their last 2 games (including today's fixture)

Division One

Gunnislake 0 - 4 Gerrans & St Mawes

A ten minute spell in the first half secured the win for the visitors with a brace of well taken goals from Ben Ringrose and another from Rory Jarvis. A bobbly pitch and stiff breeze whipping down through the valley didn't help the sides but overall it was a good, entertaining game and for most of the match not too much between the two teams.

Sam Hadfield floated in the fourth straight from a corner in the second half and St Mawes continue their push for one of the automatic promotion places.

Division 5

Week St Mary 0-1 St Eval Spitfires

Not a great game for the neutral with the only goal coming on the hour. St Eval didn't take advantage of the wind blowing down the Sanders Field pitch in the first half and Week St Mary tried in the second. The closest they came was hitting the post in the 90th minute.

Grampound reserves 3 Tregony 4 

First win of the season for the visitors 

Well done to our neighbours Tregony to pick up their first win of the season. Grampound Res. were awful from start to finish, missing a string of good chances and defending poorly througout.  Nobody could deny Tregony a bit of good luck and they made the most of it, but just a pity that only 3 of the Tregony lads thought it appropriate to come back to the Dolphin for food and a drink.

Both sets of teams were poor in defence I thought. but as you say luck was on the side of the visitor's and some decent moves from both teams 


Eh eh eh eh!thought we defended reasonably well! u Grampound scored there first a volley from 25 yards the 2nd was a deflected cross and a superb volley and your 3Rd was a shot parried that the lad scored apologies to Grampound lads for our lads not stopping I know that many teams pride themselves on being gd host all I can say that the food and hospitality in dolphin Inn was superb and the 3 that did stop had plenty of food we stayed for a bit as well!in fact longer than the home team!
