WITH the league leaders involved in League Cup action, second place Ludgvan took the opportunity to close the gap on table toppers Illogan to 11 points, writes Scott Haley.

Goals from Jack Ramsey and Liam Devine cancelled out Ben Manley's strike, as the Hurlers beat Perranwell 2-1 at Fairfield.

Ben Beesley's brace helped Redruth United to a 2-0 win over Goonhavern as their fantastic debut season in the Combination League continues.

Neil Jeffree's side moved level on points with third place Wendron United, and remain a point ahead of St Day, who kept their title hopes alive with a 2-0 win over Hayle with Matt Witts and Mikey Davies grabbing the goals.

At the other end, Troon moved off the bottom of the table edging out RNAS Culdrose 4-3 in a thriller at Grouter Park.

Andrew House (2), Ashley Smeeth and Jamie Marles grabbed the home side's goals with Jamie Adam, Tim Murray and Adam McMillan replying for Culdrose as Troon won back to back games for the first time this season.

Porthleven replaced Troon at the foot of the table despite picking up a morale boosting point at home to high flying St Just.

Two goals from Jordan Annear and another from James Greet inspired them to a 3-3 draw, with Neil Curnow, Rob Troon and Ryan Semmens replying for the Tinners.

Falmouth Town won their first league match since October away at St Agnes, with Tom Richards and Connor Symons cancelling out Duane Britton's strike in a 2-1 victory at Enys Parc.

Mullion ran out 3-0 winners over Newquay in the cup last week, but the two sides couldn't be separated on Saturday with the game finishing 2-2 at Clifden Parc.

Liam Hunter and Chris Ensink were on target for the hosts, while Louis Price and the help of an own goal ensured Newquay went away with a point.

A double from Ross Duncan and a third from Andy Barry ensured St Ives Town got back to winning ways, seeing off Falmouth Athletic 3-1 at the Saltings.

Wendron United knocked league leaders Illogan out of the Cornwall Combination League Cup after Ben Ambrose's 96th minute winner saw them overcome their title rivals in a highly competitive quarter-final at Underlane on Saturday.

After a subdued first half, the game exploded in to life in the second with all five goals coming after the break, and there was controversy too as Illogan full back Joe Carlyon saw red for a poor challenge on Kirk Davies.

Despite being a man down, the visitors made it 2-2 with six minutes remaining and the game looked destined for extra-time before Ambrose's dramatic winner.

The result will be a big boost for Paul Murray's side, who still have to play the champions in the league as they look to close the gap at the top of the table.
