Troon Res 3 Chacewater Res 4

Chacewater travelled to Troon with a much changed team due to injuries and work commitments, but manager Martin Bromwell was pleased with the performance of his players.

He said: "Everyone played their part and that is a tribute to my players. Our playing depth is thin, however and we could do with a few new faces."

Chris Shackley ran through from the halfway line to score the first goal and, although Troon equalised, another Shackley shot was saved by the home keeper only for Chris Pridham to drive in Chacewater's second goal.

Troon equalised early in the second half and it stayed that way until the 80th minute when Shackley scored again.

Once again Troon equalised with three minutes to go. Substitute Matt Young was then Chacewater's hero when he was in the right place to score following a free-kick which resulted in a goalmouth scramble.

The reserves host St.Buryan on Saturday (2.30pm).

Chacewater first team's match at Newlyn Non-Athletico was postponed due to waterlogged pitch at Penzance Leisure Centre. This Saturday they travel to Stithians (2.30pm).

Gwinear 4 St Erme 1

St Erme manager Andy Johns went into this Barker Bowl quarter final without four of his regular starting XI against the Trelawny League Division 5 league leaders Gwinear.

It turned out to be a fantastic effort with the tie undecided until two late goals from the hosts took them through to the semi final. The Saints fell behind to an early goal, but young Mike Truscott soon equalised with a terrific strike and it was end to end before Gwinear scored right on half time.

The home team piled on the pressure in the second half and the visitors defended superbly until the pressure finally told against their more physical opponents. St Erme will now turn their attention to achieving a top four place in the league which would give them promotion in their first season.

TIGER HIT BACK FOR DRAW:

Threemilestone Tigers U13s 2 Hayle Town U13s 2

In what was a must win game for both sides, honours ended even.

Threemilestone, playing with the wind, took the game to Hayle in the first half but couldn't find the right pass to really capitalise.

Hayle defended well and took the lead with a good counter attack. The Tigers were grateful for Doug Williams in goal to keep the score at 1-0. Tigers equalised with 10 minutes to go when Matt Simmons played a through ball for Cadan Polkinghorne to run on to and although the Hayle keeper pulled off a good initial save, debutant William George was on hand to put the ball into an empty net.

In the second half Hayle coped better with the wind behind them and took the lead again with a great strike from the edge of the box.

But Tigers started to find their form and were able to equalise with another good strike from inside the box from Taig Stevens.

Both sides had chances to win it but overall a draw was a fair result.

Man of the match: Matt Simmons – he played some delicate through balls and made some important tackles just in front of the back four.
