SWPL Premier leaders Falmouth Town’s seven-goal thriller with Saltash United was among the big moments on the latest weekend of the local football season.

But who picked up their first points, who has already scored double figures, and which teams’ records remain unblemished?

Packet Sport offers you five things that you may have missed from the weekend's football action.

Matt keeps scoring run going

Porthleven striker Matt Drummond has made a blistering start to the new season, scoring his 10th and 11th goals of season in his side’s 3-1 win at home to Dobwalls in SWPL Division 1 West on Saturday.

The veteran striker opened his account with a goal in Port’s 3-0 opening day win at home to Wadebridge, before scoring two in the 3-2 win at Penzance the following week.

Drummond scored five goals in the 8-1 win at Ludgvan last weekend and bagged one in the 3-2 win against Mousehole on Wednesday before his double on Saturday.

Port and Liskeard last ones standing

That win meant Porthleven are one of just two sides in the SWPL Premier, Division 1 West and Combination League to have won every game so far this season.

Unfortunately for the Fishermen the other team is also in Division 1 West, with Liskeard Athletic sharing the lead at the top of the division.

Liskeard beat Holsworthy 1-0 on Saturday to ensure they also picked up their fifth win from as many games.

The two sides meet at Liskeard’s Lux Park next month with that game already starting to look like a crucial six-pointer in the race for promotion.

Helston unlucky against Plymouth professionals

Helston Athletic suffering a 3-0 away defeat may not seem like something worthy of too much praise, but they recorded the result against an unexpectedly strong Plymouth Argyle side.

Argyle have history of sweeping aside SWPL Premier sides when fielding their experienced first-team pros, with a 12-0 mauling of Stoke Gabriel last season and a 6-0 hammering at St Austell the year before being particularly notable.

But the Blues were not overawed by their opponents - who fielded former Rangers midfielder Gregg Wylde, ex-Arsenal youth-teamer Tafari Moore, Everton trainee Calum Dyson and former Motherwell winger Lionel Ainsworth - and limited the Pilgrims to three goals, even hitting the crossbar twice and having two efforts cleared off the line in the process.

Culdrose wasting less time this year

RNAS Culdrose won their first game of the new Combination League season at their third attempt on Saturday, beating Pendeen Rovers 2-1.

It was a much longer wait for their first win last season, with the Airmen losing their first ten games before beating Illogan RBL Reserves 2-1 in their 15th game of the season on December 9.

Despite the slow start, Culdrose won four of their last eight games to finish 17th and stave off relegation.

There was also good news for Redruth United, who picked up their first point after six defeats so far when they drew with West Cornwall on Saturday.

The match was also only their second home game of the season after a collapsed mine shaft meant they had to play away from their Clijah Croft home at the beginning of the new season.

Town go top after scoring 14

Falmouth Town surged to the top of the Combination League on Saturday in style with a thumping 14-1 win at home to Carharrack.

Oscar Fergus-Gay and Ben Kellow scored hat-tricks with Kian Thomas (2), Fraser Harris, Sam Pickup, Gavin Perraton, Jackson Penhallurick, Rhys Allen and OG also scoring for Town, while Jamie Shaw netted the visitors' consolation.

It has been a difficult start to the season for the League's bottom club, who also shipped double figures on the opening day of the season, when they lost 10-1 at Porthleven.

Carharrack were involved the last time 14 goals were scored by one side in the Combination League on August 22, 2017, except that time they were on the right end as they beat Holmans 14-0.
