It was Percy Stephens Cup action for the majority of sides in the Trelawny League on Saturday, with one of the shocks of the round coming as division two side Falmouth Athletic DC knocked out premier division side Penzance Reserves.

Falmouth fell behind early on in the match, but Ian Grant proved to be the match winner as he equalised with a left foot volley and then scored an overhead kick to put his side in front at the break. Mike Cudlipp added a second half goal for Falmouth to complete the 3-1 win.

There was no upset at premier division leaders Illogan RBL Reserves though as they successfully dispatched of St Keverne 5-1. Simon Carter (2), Ryan Treloar, Luke Abbott-Smith and Tom Butt got the goals for Illogan.

Mawnan overcame Frogpool/Cusgarne 3-2 in the Percy Stephens Cup, but it was a below-par performance that lacked any real substance. Mawnan dominated the early stages, but failed to take several chances and were suitable punished when Mawnan's central partnership were nowhere to be seen as Brett Hocking ran through on goal and shot to give Chris Symons no chance.

Just when it looked as if the visitors would go into the break with a lead, Damien Stevens gained possession and hit a superb curling shot into the top corner to give the goalkeeper no chance.

Within two minutes of the start of the second half Kevin Morris volleyed in a low angled right foot shot and shortly afterwards Ryan James turned well in box to fire his shot out of the reach of Booker.

Mawnan were far from convincing and 15 minutes from time Frogpool ensured a nervous finish when a deep free-kick by Ian Jay went over the head of Symons and into the net off the post.
Falmouth Albion also just scraped into round two as they beat Newlyn-Non Athletico 5-4 away.

Their goals came from Dave Williams (2), Tom Hills, Joe Benney and Mark Symonds.

Carharrack are through to the next round as they beat Redruth Athletic 4-0 away. Liam Bray (2) and James Mitchell (2) were on target.

James Fraklyn and Cameron Irish were both on target for Gwinear Churchtown as they beat St Agnes Reserves 2-1 away.

Premier division side Constantine are also through after a 4-0 home win against Praze-an-Beeble.

Penryn Athletic IIIs' Jay Durber (2), Liam Davies, Chris Page, David Bush, Tom Blake and Adam Philpott were all on target as their side beat Ludgvan Reserves 7-2.
