PENRYN Athletic kept their 100 per cent start to the season going with a 2-1 win at home to St Ives Town on Saturday, but were made to work hard for their latest set of three points.

Tom Annear put Penryn ahead at the break with a fine free-kick in the fifth minute, but St Ives came out firing in the second half and Ross Duncan’s strike five minutes into the half levelled matters.

Jack Rapsey missed the chance to restore Penryn’s lead from the spot with 13 minutes to go, before a melee on the pitch saw manager Harry Pope sent off.

The hosts sealed victory in the eighth minute of added time when a defensive mix-up allowed a backpass to tamely roll into the net.

Perranwell lost 2-1 at home to Redruth United. Thomas Milburn and Jago Clift sealed victory for the visitors, while Daniel Ferris replied for the Well.

A notable incident occurred when Redruth were awarded a penalty for handball when a Perranwell player picked the ball up to stop the game for a head injury, with the visitors deliberately sending the kick wide.

Kyle Cooke scored a hat-trick as Falmouth Town reserves beat Ludgvan 6-2. Will Harding, Brodie Kemp and Charlie Edney also netted. Liam Devine scored for the home side.
