Helston Athletic put themselves into contention to win this season's Dave Gardner Memorial Tournament by beating local rival Porthleven 6-0 at Kellaway Park.
Mark Goldsworthy, who top scored for Helston last season, scored a hat-trick while Liam Eddy and Mikey Davies also added strikes. An own goal from Darren Robinson also found the back of the Porthleven net.
Helston Athletic: Jason Robertson, Ben Stidwell, Dan Stidwell, Jamie Thomson ©, Hugh Howlett, Frazer Cumming, Jordan Adlard, Charles Young, Liam Eddy, Mark Goldsworthy, James Miller.
Subs: Ash Stidwell, Fred Conway, Chris Strike, Nigel Thwaites, Kegan McPhilbin, Shaun Parker, Mikey Davies
Porthleven: Geach, Darren Roberston, Jowan Shainberg, Jamie Burr, Dominic Batchelor, Luke Hunter, Chris Morris, Dan Greet, Robbie Robinson, Ryan Trathen, Fred Williams.
The result leaves Porthleven with a slim chance of winning the tournament, with just one point on the board.
Helston have three points, although their match with Penzance was cancelled last Friday because the Magpies couldn't raise a side. It is not sure if the points from that match will be awarded to Helston.
Falmouth were set to continue their campaign tonight (Wednesday) with a match at home to Penzance.
The final will take place on Saturday, when Penzance face Porthleven and Falmouth play Helston. Both games will be played at Falmouth's Bickland Park.
