AFTER the weekend's Cornwall Senior Cup programme was decimated by the weather, the five outstanding third round ties were due to be played this week.

Godolphin Atlantic and St Blazey are already in the hat for Saturday's quarter-final draw, which takes place live on BBC Radio Cornwall at 5.30pm, following wins over Callington Town (3-1) and Sticker (4-3) respectively at the weekend.

Cup holders Bodmin Town are already through after defeating Mullion 5-0.

Torpoint's visit of St Austell and Launceston's rearranged tie with St Dennis were postponed for the second time on Tuesday, while Saltash United were set to host Ludgvan last night (Wednesday).

On Saturday, division one west Dobwalls will be bidding to avoid an upset when they welcome Combination League high-flyers Wendron United to Lantoom Park, while their fellow title rivals St Day will be hoping to cause a shock when they host Penzance.

In the Carlsberg South West Peninsula League on Saturday, the only remaining premier division game saw Falmouth Town secure only their third league victory of the season as a first half brace from former Penzance midfielder Dan Richardson earned John Dent's men a 2-1 home win over bottom side Liskeard Athletic at Bickland Park.

All division one west matches were postponed, including leaders Mousehole's trip to Plymouth side Vospers Oak Villa.

This Saturday Mousehole host Stoke Gabriel in the third round of the Throgmorton Cup (2pm). If the Seagulls beat the East division high fliers they will receive a £300 prize for the West side progressing furthest in the competition.

Meanwhile Bodmin Town's FA Carlsberg Vase campaign ended in disappointment on Saturday afternoon with a 3-1 defeat away to Essex side Brightlingsea of the Eastern Counties League.

St Just won 4-3 at RNAS Culdrose in one of only three Jolly's Combination League matches to go ahead on Saturday.

In difficult conditions at the airbase the visitors fought back from a 2-1 half-time deficit to secure the three points, thanks to goals from Darren Steadman, Lewis Caspell and Ashley Ellis with skipper Neil Curnow scoring the winner from the penalty spot five minutes from time.

Elsewhere champions Illogan opened up an eight-point lead at the top of the table following a 6-1 victory at Goonhavern.

It was Illogan's 10th successive win on the road this season, with Dan Richards netting a hat-trick and other goals coming from Sam Waters, Jason Roberts and Simon Ellis.

Paul Robertson replied for Goonhavern who remain only three points above the relegation places.

Five second half goals, including a hat-trick inside six minutes from striker Rob Carey helped Mullion to a 6-2 home win over his former club Falmouth Town.

Alan Thomas (2) and Jack Sherlock were also on target for Mullion, with Jamie Webb and Ben Allen replying for Town.
