HELSTON Athletic earned their 13th consecutive victory in the South West Peninsula League Premier West, running out 6-2 winners at home to Newquay.

Playing for the first time in the league since earning a record 12th consecutive league win in an 8-0 victory at home to Sticker on October 23, the Blues showed few signs of rustiness and led after 13 minutes thanks to a fine finish from Neil Slateford from Alfie Flack's pass.

Billy Tucker made it two on the stroke of half time with an excellent strike into the top corner, before Flack's header extended the lead early in the second half.

Jose Perez was in the right place at the right time to pull one back for the Peppermints, with Jason Robertson's save striking the Newquay forward and flying into the net.

Tucker was on hand to restore Helston's three-goal lead with a cool finish in the box midway through the half, before turning provider to tee up Goldsworthy for his 24th league goal of the season.

Goldsworthy had number 25 not long after, firing in a pass from Flack – his third assist of the game – from close range, before Phil Lowry bagged another consolation for the visitors late on.

Wendron United put up a strong fight but ultimately fell to a 4-2 defeat at high-flying Saltash United.

The Dron have had an even longer wait for a league, having not played since their 3-2 win at home to Sticker on October 19, and found themselves behind after three minutes when Daniel Lewis' shot was saved by Dan Stedman and unfortunately turned in by a defender.

But Jack Greenwood's side were level midway through the half when Chris Mulroy finished off a good move, only for Ryan Richards to restore the lead three minutes later.

The score remained the same at the break but Shaun Cleary doubled the Ashes' lead midway through the second half with a fine finish from outside the box.

Richards made sure of the victory with eight minutes to play with a good finish into the top corner, before TJ Walter pulled another one back for the Dron in the final moments.

Elsewhere, ten-man St Blazey enjoyed a thumping 7-0 win at nine-man Callington Town, while Wadebridge Town won by the same score at Godolphin Atlantic.

Mousehole closed the gap on fourth-placed Bodmin Town to two points with a 4-1 win at home to the Amber & Blacks, while Launceston won 2-0 at home to Penzance.

St Austell stayed at the top of the table with a 6-0 win at Liskeard Athletic on Friday night.
