THERE wasn't a postponement in sight last weekend with a full round of fixtures for the first time this year as the worst of the winter weather looks to have passed, writes Scott Haley.

Illogan remain 14 points clear at the top as they scored half a dozen for the second consecutive week to see off RNAS Culdrose 6-2.

Sam Waters grabbed a hat-trick while Luke Johnson, Dan Richards and Matt Roberts all notched to cancel out strikes from Mike Umney and Craig Lambert.

Gerens James scored twice to make it 42 goals for the season as second placed Ludgvan put four past Mullion. Jamie Devine and Tom Patrick added one each, while Alan Thomas grabbed a consolation for Mullion.

Goals from Ashley Ellis and Jack Willis keep St Just in third as they beat St Agnes 2-0 to keep the Tinners' slim title hopes alive.

At the other end, St Ives were 1-1 winners at home to struggling Porthleven with goals from Ross Duncan and Sean Roberts enough for the Saints, with Marcus Smith replying.

Goonhavern picked up a valuable point as they drew 2-2 at Falmouth Athletic. James Rosevear and Jason Pearce's goals were cancelled out by Ross Hayden and Steve Owen who scored for the hosts.

Redruth United remain in the top six after narrowly overcoming Newquay by a goal to nil with the help of an own goal, while Falmouth Town and Perranwell saw out a 1-1 draw with goals from Alex Ottoway and Mathew Lane keeping both sides sat in mid-table.

Goals from Chris Bullock and Ben Hocking helped Hayle leapfrog opponents Penryn in to 12th place.

Ryan Reeve pulled one back for the visitors but it wasn't enough as they look for their first league win since November.
