ST DAY continue to set the early pace after the opening seven games, seeing off struggling Porthleven 5-1 at Vogue on Saturday.

Mikey Davis (2), Danny Ford, Chris Tolley and Gavin Boon were on target for Matt Harris' side, who are looking to go one better than their second place finish last season.

Nathan Roberts grabbed the consolation for Porthleven, who remain rooted to the bottom of the table without a point.

St Just won 4-1 away at Hayle to keep the pace with St Day, thanks to goals from Darren Steadman, Tom Dann, Stuart Nicholls, Jack Willis. Kane Williams replied for the home side, who suffered their first defeat in five games.

Redruth United remain hot on the heels of both Saints' after the newly promoted side cruised to a surprisingly comfortable 3-0 win away at Mullion.

Adam Johns, Steve Walsh and Kieran Knuckey were all on target for Neil Jeffree's side, who continue to silent any doubters who believed they wouldn't be able to compete at this level.

Ludgvan got back to winning ways in some style after two defeats in a row, smashing eight past Falmouth Athletic. Last terms' golden boot winner Gerens James added three more to his season's tally with Ross Badcock, Mark Richards, Harvey James and Jack Ramsey also getting on the score sheet for the Hurlers.

St Ives Town were held to a 2-2 draw with Newquay. Andrew Perkin fired the Saints in to an early lead before Sam McKune and Dean Vince were on hand to put Newquay ahead. Scott Goodchild equalised for the home side with all four goals coming inside the first half.

Wendron United's unbeaten start to the season came to an abrupt end after Luke Abbott-Smith's brace helped Illogan RBL see off their title rivals 2-1 at Oxland Parc.

In an action packed game which saw both sides hit the woodwork, it was the champions who came out on top although Wendron will feel aggrieved they didn't get more out of the game after dominating the early stages and missing a penalty when Luke Wort saw his 16th minute penalty saved by Barrie Wyatt.

Troon grabbed their first win of the season narrowly beating Penryn Athletic by three goals to two at home. Conner Clarke, Andrew House and Rob Oldland cancelled out strikes from Bobby Bryant and Christopher Page.

Falmouth Town made it seven points from three games after a Tom Richards hat-trick inspired them to a 4-2 win over Goonhavern. Player-manager Bryn Wheeler grabbed Town's fourth while Lewis Waters bagged both goals for Goonhavern.

RNAS Culdrose picked up their first point of the season, drawing one a piece with St Agnes. Ben Earl notched for the home side with Dan O'Toole striking for Aggie.

On Tuesday night Penryn beat Falmouth Town 2-1 in a local derby at Kernick thanks to goals from Connor Edgson and Ashley Blakey-May). Helston striker Mark Goldsworthy scored Falmouth's consolation.
