HAVING been beaten 2-0 at Penryn only last week, Helston turned the tables on their Jolly's Combination League title chasing opponents with a narrow 1-0 verdict.

With the finishing post in sight the leading teams are beginning to feel the pressure, but unless St Just can put together an unbeaten run through to the end of the season the championship appears destined to be won by either Penryn or Perranwell.

Penryn had the better of things in the opening 45 minutes with Shane D'Cotta always looking a threat up front, but despite a territorial advantage the visitors were unable to turn possession into goalscoring chances as Helston defended with plenty of determination.

The second half saw Helston come much more into the game and begin to create chances of their own, but a tantalising cross by Rob Bray just eluded Graham Blake who only needed a touch to put the ball into the net.

The Blues were boosted by the inclusion of Bodmin's Nicky Medlin, brother of sweeper Ben, and Penryn strengthed their side with Matt Thirkle, the brother of Jamie.

The crucial goal came ten minutes from time when Ryan Treloar pounced during a goalmouth scramble to drill the ball home.


Wendron came out of this tough game with a point and will probably be well pleased with their efforts.

The home side enjoyed an even share of the play in the opening half, but chances were at a premium against a side who defended well.

The first goal came after just 15 minutes play when Liam Quinn provided a perfect pass for Simon Beavis to run on to and slide the ball past goalkeeper Brian Scoffin.

The second half saw the visitors enjoy the lion's share of possession, but Wendron showed that they can also dig in and defend with determination as they kept Hayle at arm's length.

Hayle created several good opportunities, but with goalkeeper Brian Scoffin in superb form they were unable to find a way through for the winner.


Mullion failed to last the distance in this clash at Enys Parc with St Agnes nicking the spoils 2-1 thanks to their first-half efforts.

The home side didn't have to work too hard for their opening goal. It came as a result of Chris Mulroy's shot in the 14th minutes which goalkeeper Carl Richardson was unable to hold on to and Tom Benny quickly pounced to drill in the loose ball.

The game never reached any great heights, but the home side doubled their score after 30 minutes when Mulroy's finish gave Richardson no chance.

Martin Dunstan was penalised for handball to allow Alex Sharkey to pull a goal back from the penalty spot, but the visitors did not enjoy any more success.

The game lacked excitement and any real sense of purpose in the second half as St Agnes held on for the three points.
