Monday roundup: looking back at the weekend's action

Football, and as the season draws to a close Porthleven played out a relatively drab 1-1 draw with Dobwalls at Gala Parc - although the Fishermen had to come from behind to earn a point.

Tom Annear glanced a header into the back of his own net to put the visitors in front, but atoned for his earlier mistake later in the game when he curled a superb free kick over the Dobwalls wall and into the bottom corner.

Meanwhile Helston Athletic put the disappointment of defeat at home against Godolphin behind them by battling their way to a 2-1 win away at Vospers Oak Villa.

Mark Goldsworthy and Matt Fox were on the scoresheet for the Blues, who are still in the hunt for a second placed finish, with Wadebridge yet to visit Kellaway Parc.

In the Peninsula League premier division Falmouth Town's season to forget continued on Saturday.  Town were thrashed 5-1 away at high-flying Elburton Villa.

While on Friday night Penryn Athletic came from behind to beat Perranporth at Kernick Road.

The visitors went ahead thanks to a 30 yard screamer from Josh Burton, before Kayne Trevaskis equalised for Penryn.

Dale Band's penalty in the second half made sure of all three points for the home side.

In cricket Falmouth travelled to Cornwood in the Kingfisher Cup, but came away empty handed.

Cornwood were put in to bat first, setting Falmouth a total of 193 to chase. Jason Hall (62) and Ben Warren (45) did the damage.

Falmouth's innings started poorly, losing their first five wickets for just 49 runs, and the visitors never really recovered.

Jake Preston (39) and catpain Adrian Noot (25) did their best to stem the slide, but Falmouth were all out for 128 off 40 overs.

It was a happier afternoon for St Gluvias who entertained Redruth 2nds at home.

The home side won the toss and put Redruth in to bat, skittling the visitors for just 62 runs. Andrew Julian and Ben Mitchell claimed three wickets apiece for St Gluvias in what was a devastating opening day display of bowling.

St Gluvias wrapped up the win with the loss of just two wickets to get their season off to a flying start.
