Kilkhampton 1 Torpoint 3

LEAGUE leaders Torpoint were held to a draw at home to Kilkhampton at the end of October but had their revenge with an away win at Lamb Park on Saturday.

The scores were still level at the interval, but Torpoint took control in the second half and might well have doubled their score but for some missed chances and seeing a couple of efforts disallowed.

Guy Powney opened the scoring for Torpoint, but Gary Walter equalised before the break with a free kick.

Ben Applegate restored the Torpoint lead and Mike Roberts capped an impressive afternoon in midfield by completing the scoring.

MoM: Mike Roberts (Torpoint).

Bere Alston United 0 Saltash United 1

A GOAL from Luke Kelly midway through the first half was enough to give Saltash a hard-earned away victory that keeps them in second place, only one point behind Torpoint.

It was a good finish from Kelly, who had earlier squandered a couple of decent opportunities.

The Ashes were indebted to goalkeeper Ryan Walkey for pulling off two excellent saves to deny Bere Alston, who played well enough, but were unable to turn their attacking play into goals.

There was another impressive performance for Saltash by 18-year-old Baylee Cooke, who has switched from right back to produce some commanding displays at central defence.

MoM: Baylee Cooke (Saltash United).

Launceston 5 Liskeard 1

LISKEARD gave their hosts an early scare when Alex Martin punished some sloppy defensive work to open the scoring after a quarter of an hour.

Launceston are on a roll with six wins and draw in their last seven games and were in front at the interval with a double strike from Adam Jenkins.

Liskeard, who had shown some encouraging form during the first half, capitulated after the break as Launceston took charge.

Left back Richard Graves impressed with some sound defensive work in addition to looking dangerous when going forward as Launceston added second half goals through Chris Ward, Roger Quaintance (own goal) and Paul Banks.

MoM: Richard Graves (Launceston)

Millbrook 1 Elburton Villa 2

MILLBROOK were punished for an uncertain start as they lost at home to Elburton for their first defeat in five matches.

Jacob Smale shot the visitors into the lead on the half hour as Millbrook took time to settle. But they improved after the break and got themselves back into the game with a penalty from Craig Swiggs following a foul on Sean Evans.

Millbrook went in search of a winner, but Elburton stuck to their task with 16-year-old Tyler Elliott impressive at the heart of defence, while Smale grabbed the winner with a tremendous strike from 35 yards.

MoM: Tyler Elliott (Elburton Villa).

Morwenstow 2 Polperro 7

POLPERRO struggled to find their feet in the premier division, failing to win any of their first six leagues games, but they are now enjoying a fine run of form with their victory at Morwenstow being their seventh successive success.

So they will be in confident mood ahead of their next two matches at home to high riding Torpoint and Plymouth Parkway.

Rob Spencer led the way for Polperro with four goals while Dominic Richardson, Zak Davey and Liam Faulkner were also on target.

Morwenstow showed some determination in the second half and were rewarded with a couple of goals from Sam Hockin.

MoM: Rob Spencer (Polperro).

Plymouth Parkway 1 Tavistock 1

TAVISTOCK followed up their home win over leaders Torpoint by picking up an away point from third-placed Plymouth Parkway to round off a three-match spell that has seen them take seven points and concede only one goal.

There was little to choose between the sides in a closely contested game with Ryan Moorhead impressing for Tavistock in central midfield.

The visitors opened the scoring midway through the second half with a goal from new striker Antony Davey.

Any thoughts of Tavistock taking all three points were dashed, however, when Jordan Graytrix pounced to equalise for Parkway.

MoM: Ryan Moorhead (Tavistock).

St Dominick 3 Wadebridge Town 1

ST DOMINICK battled back from an early deficit to gain their first win in five matches against a Wadebridge side, who are still looking for a new manager.

Although Saints made most of the early running, the visitors went ahead after 26 minutes when Johnny May was left unmarked on the edge of the box. St Dominick equalised three minutes later, however, with a cross-come-shot from Kevin Bashford.

Kyle Peacock gave Saints the lead with a cracking drive after 65 minutes and Peacock then turned provider for Luke Vallance to wrap up a well deserved victory four minutes from time.

MoM: John Jones (St Dominick).

St Teath 3 Callington Town 1

ST TEATH will be hoping the return of Jamie Kay from a knee injury can help them start climbing the table after Kay's double strike against Callington gave St Teath their first win since early September.

Kay linked up well with Shaun Cunningham in the home attack while Mark Grills was also on target.

Callington were defending a five-match unbeaten run, but were unable to make much headway against St Teath, who had James Mountain on form in midfield.

The visitors had a penalty from Josh McCabe saved by Josh Grills, but scored a late consolation through Kane Wilson.

MoM: Jamie Kay (St Teath).
