Porthleven did something on February 1 that they could not do in the whole of January, December or November: win a game.

It wasn't pretty, but a controversial free kick Dan Richardson and an even more controversial penalty from Joe Wright secured a 2-1 victory over ten-man Callington Town - their first at their Gala Parc home since August 31, when they beat the same side 7-0 in the FA Vase.

Wins are like buses: you wait three months for one and, well, you know the rest.

Port were at it again seven days later, running out 4-2 winners at Camelford to move level on points with the ninth-placed Camels.

A rare indirect free kick inside the box provided Dan Richardson's opening goal inside two minutes, before Dan Stidwell (2) and Kyle Fraser ensured Port's first back-to-back wins since September 7.

Speaking of consecutive wins, there was still no end in sight for Helston Athletic's record-breaking run as February began.

Former St Austell striker Mark Goldsworthy netted as his Blues side won 2-0 at their title rivals, before following it up with a 3-1 win at Dobwalls.

St Austell's defeat left many feeling that the title race was now between the Blues and Saltash United, and the Ashes' start to the month brought victories over both Wendron United and Falmouth Town, whose month began with a 3-2 win at Camelford.

For the Ashes, a 5-0 league win at the Dron, in which they scored their 100th league goal of the season, was followed by a 2-0 win at Bickland Park in the Cornwall Senior Cup quarter-final, ending Town's reign as champions of Cornwall.

Two second-half goals from Sam Hughes were enough for Matt Cusack's side to gain revenge for their own dethroning at the hands of Town in last season's final.

Town's and the Dron's attempts to bounce back, and Port's and the Blues' hopes of maintaining their winning momentum, were denied by Storm Dennis, which caused the postponement of all scheduled SWPL games for the first time in two years.

Dennis' impact went into the following week, with the derby between Falmouth and Porthleven having to be rearranged for a Monday night in the final week of the season.

The wet weather continued for the rest of the month and Town were becoming one of the hardest-hit sides by the constant rearrangement of games.

Postponements of further games against Dobwalls, St Blazey and Newquay mean that Town now have 11 games to look forward to in April alone.

Indeed, the only team to get any games played in the second half of the month were the Fishermen, who managed to get two ticked off as Storm Jorge ensured another near washout towards the end of February.

First was a hard-fought 3-2 win at home to Sticker, in which the hosts fell two goals behind inside 20 minutes.

But a goal in either half from Wright hauled Port level, before Fraser's late free kick secured his side's third win in succession.

Hopes of a fourth were dashed four days later at Mousehole's Trungle Parc, with the Seagulls running out 5-2 winners.

The score was harsh on Port, who scored through Stidwell and Hugh Howlett, but what was arguably worse than the defeat was the sight of in-form striker Wright limping from the field with a suspected knee ligament injury.

Managers Graham Blake and Jamie Thomson will be hoping their striker can play some part, or hope that someone else can step up, ahead of a busy March and April.
