SATURDAY'S league programme was again badly affected by the weather with only five matches going ahead.

Ludgvan climbed to third place after beating bottom of the table Troon 5-1.

Gerens James took his tally for the season to 40 with four goals, and moved to within 18 of the league record.

Tom Patrick was also on target for the Hurlers, whose home game with RNAS Culdrose on Monday was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch. New signing Dave Mitchell scored a consolation effort for the visitors.

With second place Wendron in Senior Cup action, leaders Illogan increased the gap at the top to 11 points after a 4-1 win over Falmouth Town.

Dan Bowman bagged a brace with one apiece for Matt Roberts and Sam Waters. Town's reply came from Tom Richards.

Liam Paddock and Luke Brabyn scored a brace apiece, with Matt Rollason and Matt Gilbert also on the scoresheet as Perranwell romped to a 6-0 victory over third from bottom Goonhavern.

Newquay and Hayle shared the spoils in a 2-2 draw. Danny Richards bagged both goals for the visitors with Ollie Downing and Nathan Starkey ensuring the home side a point.

Elsewhere Porthleven moved to within two points of Goonhavern after a goalless draw at home to Falmouth Athletic.
