Perranporth 0, Sticker 4
Two own goals helped Sticker to victory at Ponsmere Valley in the only game to go ahead in division one west on Saturday.
The CSWPL Peninsula League programme was decimated by the weather, but despite a heavy downpour on the north coast, Perranporth’s pitch was deemed playable by referee George Pattison.
And it was three goals in 14 first half minutes that set Sticker on their way to victory to move up to second in the division one west table.
Their opener arrived in the ninth minute when Liam Dingle drove the ball into the roof of the net from 15 yards out to give Pilchards’ goalkeeper Andy Butcher no chance.
And Butcher was beaten again in the 14th minute when Rob Stapleton directed the ball past his own goalkeeper from man of the match Jack Bowyer’s cross.
It was Bowyer who added Sticker’s third in the 23rd minute, cleverly hooking the ball over his own head into the top corner.
A disappointing second half produced little incident, before a second own goal, a header past his own goalkeeper from Jack James in the 88th minute, completed a miserable afternoon for Perranporth.
