Tony stuns Grampound with 40 yard cup screamer

THE atrocious weather of the week was the big winner in the Duchy League programme with only a handful of games surviving the deluge.

One game that couldn't be affected was the KMD Developments Knockout Cup second round tie played on the 3G pitch at Newquay, and that turned out to be a classic, well refereed by Francis Matulewic.

Premier Sixes eventually caused a giant-killing with a 6-3 win after extra time against first division Grampound.

The visitors failed to take advantage of a strong tail wind as the first half ended goalless, but they took the lead against the run of play after the restart with a Derrick Lucas header.

Martyn Probert maintained Sixes' incredible scoring record with an equaliser 15 minutes from time, but Lee Budge restored the visitors' lead with a 20 yard missile shot.

Sixes looked on the way out, but on the stroke of time Dan Code scrambled an equaliser after a free kick.

Ben Lawrence put Sixes ahead for the first time early in extra time and Josh Mitchell stretched the lead. Probert made it five before Budge pulled a goal back five minutes from the end.

A 40 yard volley from Tony Cock in the dying seconds had players on both sides clapping as the second division side set up an away quarter final at Padstow.

James Olsen scored all three goals as St Mawgan had a comfortable 3-0 home victory over Calstock in Division One which lifts them one place into seventh.

Godolphin Atlantic again failed to take advantage of their rivals not playing as a 3-3 draw with next to bottom Polperro leave them in second place. Jamie Hayton, Lee Paxton and Jamie McNamee were the home scorers.

Just one game survived in Division Two with AFC Bodmin coasting to a 6-2 win at Boscastle.

Aaron Washer and Jamie Burnett scored the home goals, but an Andy Seymour brace and goals from Fraser Robinson, Neil Crook, Arron Sturdy and Jason Willis gave the visitors the spoils.

St Columb Major turned league form upside down to topple previously unbeaten Saltash United in the Cornwall Junior Cup at the fourth round stage.

A Joe Gaskell hat trick and an Aaron Talbot brace had the home side sitting comfortable with a five-goal lead. Saltash hit back with two late goals to give the final score of 5-2 some respectability.

Scott Coombe fired St Dominick into a 22nd minute lead at home to Millbrook, but two minutes later Craig Brenton put the visitors on level terms.

The game was quite even until the hour before Brenton scored Millbrook's second. St Dominick levelled five minutes later when Coombe went down the wing and crossed for Karl Whitehead to head home.

Coombe went close to putting the hosts back in front but fired wide, leaving Jamie Gage to score twice in the 80th and 88th minutes to give the visitors a 4-2 passage to the next round.
