Paul 179-7, St Just 63-1

ST JUST have played four home Premier league games and are yet to record a victory a Cape Road. Unbelievably this was their third abandonment of a frustrating campaign so far.

Paul got off to a good start with Andrew Smeeth (48) and Steve Richards (20) putting on 68. Wickets then tumbled but Matt O'Leary's 46 got the visitors to 179 for seven in their 55 overs. Neil Pengelly made a useful 18 not out. Gareth May took three for 41, including an excellent caught and bowled to remove O'Leary.

Adam Williams took two for 21 from 16 overs. After a wide David Roberts was dismissed by O'Leary to the second ball of the innings.

St Just, after a rain break, were able to restart at 6.20pm but after three overs rain returned, heavier than ever, and that was that. May was 32 not out and Curnow unbeaten on 20 when a downpour saw the game end.

Falmouth 120 Truro 93-6 rsp

FALMOUTH and Truro left the field at Trescobeas with the result in the balance, in the one game that neared a conclusion.

With opener Joe Dale unbeaten on 38, Truro needed 28 runs, with four wickets and 20 overs left, when the players left the field at 7.15pm for the third and final time.

The game was called off half an hour later. Adrian Noott made 16 and Jon Udy 21 as Falmouth passed 50 for the loss of Stefan Churcher (4).

The innings then collapsed with only Richard Kellow (24) and George Popperwell (13) getting double figures. Kyle Van Rooyen took three for 20 from 11 overs and Rob Harrison three for 45 with two each for Alex Taylor and Tom Sharp.

Truro lost Tim Marrion and Sharp with only 19 on the board, James Walton followed at 41 for three with Popperwell striking twice.

Between the showers Justin Stephens struck to account for Van Rooyen and Harrison. He took three for 22 and Popperwell two for 35.
