Rowett Insurance League Cup, quarter-final:

St Teath 4, Camelford 3

ST TEATH remain on course for a possible league and cup double after the division one leaders became the first team to book their place in the semi-finals of the Rowett Insurance League Cup.

Camelford battled well to draw level at the interval after the home side had taken a two-goal lead with Andrew Burden scoring a penalty while Karl Elliott added a second.

Scott Percy scored twice for Camelford before the break but St Teath had the better of the second half with goals from midfielder Martin Heal and Ted Meagor.

Camelford, despite having Percy sent off for a second yellow card, responded with a late goal from Jake Dickenson.

MoM: Martin Heal (St Teath).

The quarter-final tie between Elburton Villa and St Dominick was postponed to Tuesday, February 5. The Polperro v Saltash quarter-final was also called off and will now be played on Wednesday, February 20.

Rowett Insurance Supplementary Cup, quarter-final

Bude Town 4, Edgcumbe 1:

BOTH sides had key players missing, but Bude still had too much firepower for their first division opponents .

Promotion-chasing Bude eased into a 3-0 interval lead with goals from Steve Box, Adam Smith and Dan Starkey.

Smith was always a threat on the right for Bude and wrapped up the scoring for the home side with his second goal of the game.

Edgcumbe, who had three of their regular back four missing, put up a spirited performance and were rewarded with a goal from Sean Heward.

MoM: Adam Smith (Bude Town).

The other quarter-final due to be played on Saturday – between Bere Alston and St Stephen – was postponed and a new date is still awaited.

Probus 1, Torpoint Athletic 1

THIS was Torpoint's third draw in the last six league matches and they will have only themselves to blame if the points being dropped eventually prove costly in the bid to retain their league title.

A goal from Guy Powney gave Torpoint an interval lead and they had numerous chances to add to their tally.

The home side were rewarded for their efforts when Alex Pearce converted a late penalty.

MoM: Mike Roberts (Torpoint).

Launceston 2, Lanreath 2

LANREATH continued their recent improved form despite travelling to Launceston with a weakened side after being forced to call up three second team players.

Dan Watterson gave the visitors an interval lead, but Launceston hit back with second half goals from Dan Tilly and Callum O'Brien.

James Noel equalised while Simon Libby nearly snatched a late winner when he was denied by the woodwork.

MoM: Jonny Collins (Lanreath).

Liskeard Athletic 1, Plymouth Parkway 6

LISKEARD are going through a difficult time as they are bringing through some young players while feeding others through to the first team.

They were not helped against a strong Parkway team by the loss of Al Lindsey with an early injury, but new signing Barrie Crane, who had not played for a couple of seasons, came on and slotted in well for the hosts.

Lee Caers scored an early goal for Liskeard but Parkway hit back to take a 4-1 interval lead with two goals each by Lewis Young and lively attacker Andy Harris.

Two second half goals from Steve Blackburn saw Parkway complete an impressive away win.

MoM: Andy Harris (Plymouth Parkway).

The other premier division match between leaders Millbrook and Morwenstow was postponed.

Callington Town 3, St Blazey 2

CALLINGTON began a run of four successive home matches with a victory that saw them climb three places to fourth in the table.

Ben Langdon outpaced the St Blazey defence to open the scoring after only a couple of minutes. Shane Kibell had the visitors back on level terms at the break with a good finish.

But Callington eased into a 3-1 lead with second half goals from Langdon and Kane Wilson.

St Blazey grabbed a late goal through John Rundle as Callington looked for an offside decision.

MoM: Ben Langdon (Callington).

Kilkhampton 3, Nanpean 1

KILKHAMPTON extended their unbeaten run to seven league matches with Carlo Chandler scoring a hat-trick in their home win over Nanpean.

Chandler struck twice for Kilkhampton before the interval. Although Nathan Hugh reduced the Nanpean arrears with a penalty, Chandler completed his hat-trick to wrap up Kilkhampton's victory.

MoM: Carlo Chandler (Kilkhampton).

St Blazey Gate 1, Bodmin 3

BODMIN moved up to second place with their away win over bottom club St Blazey Gate thanks to three second half goals.

The Gate had an interval lead with visiting goalkeeper Gerald Lake punching an attempted clearance into his own goal.

Bodmin levelled through Andy Milne and went on to secure their first win in three games with a penalty by Ashley White and a clincher from Brett Charlick.

St Blazey Gate will take some encouragement from a spirited performance against one of the division's leading teams and they were frustrated to have an effort by James Cockley disallowed by a controversial offside decision.

MoM: Andy Milne (Bodmin Town).

The match between St Stephens Borough and Plymstock was postponed.
