Monday roundup: looking back at the weekend's action

Rain disrupted the weekend's football, with not a single game in the Peninsula League's premier division going ahead.

Division one west fared better, with several games escaping the worst of the weather.
At Kellaway Parc Helston Athletic, perhaps with one eye on the Cornwall Senior Cup final, could only manage a draw.

Helston went behind thanks to a fine strike from Dobwalls' Jack Bartlett in the 16th minute.
But the Blues hit back with two well-taken goals from top-scorer Mark Goldsworthy and looked to be heading for all three points.

But Dobwalls never gave up, and were rewarded for their efforts right at the death when Joe Knight volleyed in the equaliser to stun the home crowd.

At Gala Parc two generations of the Annear family turned out in the amber and black stripes for Porthleven against Holsworthy, with manager Dennis Annear deputising for the suspended Brian Scoffin in goal.

Freddie Williams' early goal proved to be decisive, but Port missed several opportunities to extend their lead.

Annear was called upon to make several crucial saves at the feet of veteran Holsowrthy striker Roger Bonaparte as Port held on to take all three points.

It was an unhappy afternoon for Penryn Athletic, who slumped to their first league defeat since October against Wadebridge at Bodieve Park.

Gregg Hobbs put the visitors into the lead in the 34th minute, before Liam Ames' fine strike pulled the Bridgers level.

Wadebridge top-scorer Dan Jennings popped up with the winner late in the second half to condemn Penryn to a rare league loss.

In Rugby Penryn were left to rue a host of missed chances after being beaten 7-12 at home by Devonport Services.

The result leaves Penryn fifth in Western Counties West.

In the Tribute Cornwall and Devon league, Falmouth Eagles were on the wrong end of a 30-3 drubbing away at high-flying St Ives (SW).

The Cornish Pirates' trip to Rotherham was postponed after heavy rain in the South yorkshire area, while Redruth slumped to another defeat, this time away at Dings Crusaders 16-14.
