STICKER came out on top against division one west title rivals Mousehole to book their place in the third round of the Cornwall Senior Cup.

This was Mousehole's first defeat in 17 league and cup games, as goals from Jack Walker and Liam Dingle sealed a deserved win for Andrew Avery's men.

Sticker took a 25th minute lead when Andrew Butler's corner fell out to Walker, who produced a brilliant home drive into the bottom corner.

And it wasn't until virtually the last kick of the game that Sticker made sure of an impressive home victory as Dingle finished from close range.

Wadebridge Town were on the receiving end of the biggest shocks of the round as they bowed out of the competition to Combination League side Mullion.

It had started well for the Bridgers as recent signing Luke Hodge headed them into a 10th minute lead.

Mullion, eighth in the Combination League, drew level in the 52nd minute through Iestyn Head.

The brilliance of Mullion's 16-year-old goalkeeper Jordan Lugg kept Wadebridge at bay, and it was the visitors who clinched a surprise victory in the 54th minute when Alan Thomas struck.

Dobwalls booked their place in the next round with a 4-1 win over division one west rivals Truro City – despite losing leading scorer Martyn Hake to injury in the opening five minutes.

They led at the break through Jack Bartlett's 41st minute back heeled goal.

Bartlett grabbed his second in the 52nd minute with a low finish after controlling Simon Skews' searching long range pass.

And after a good piece of trickery from Harry Hook he played in Steve Tapper to scorer Dobwalls' third.

Andy Bowker pulled a goal back for Truro, before Hook claimed his second to complete the win for Paul Andrews' men.

Callington Town came out on top in a seven-goal thriller at home to Penryn Athletic.

Three goals in seven first half minutes put Callington in control, with Gary Williams, Luke Avis-Riordan and Carlton Farnham finding the net.

After Dale Band pulled a goal back for the visitors, Avis-Riordan scored his second to put Callington 4-1 up.

However, further goals from Band and Dave Broglino for Penryn ensured a nervy closing few minutes as Dobwalls held on for victory.

St Dennis were too strong for division one west strugglers Bude Town as they ran out 5-1 winners at Boscawen Park.

The Saints took a 30th minute lead through Dave Rickard, before Town drew level in the 40th minute through Gary Hodgson.

But four goals in the remaining 25 minutes booked St Dennis their place in the next round, with Lee Rickard, Martin Sleeman (2) and Scott Hill on target.

Launceston overcame Falmouth Town 2-1 to advance to the third round.

The Clarets led on the hour mark when Sam Davey fired low into the bottom corner.

Luke Doddridge doubled the Clarets' lead with a spectacular effort, before Town pulled one back in the 83rd minute through Andy Westgarth, but it was little more than a consolation.
