Hayle 197, Wadebridge 162-9

TWO batsmen steered Hayle to a match winning total at Egloshayle Road which took them to third in the table, writes Michael Weeks.

Opener Graham Wiseman hit two sixes and five fours in his 51 before being third out with the score at 78.

Skipper Paul Lello then took over making 87 off 113 balls that included a six and 13 boundaries. Joel Cameron (13) gave good support as the pair added 80 for the eighth wicket.

Ed Marquis was the pick of the eight home bowlers used taking four for 24 from ten overs.

Alek Gill made 35 at the top of the order for the home side but they slipped to a precarious 69 for six.

Neil Richards (31) and Robert Centeni (39 not out) did enough to deny a bowling bonus point. Jason Weeks took three for 16 from ten overs.

Ludgvan 213-6, Troon 117

LUDGVAN'S impressive start continued as they won well at Treslothan Road by 36 runs.

Despite Jordan Marsden's 21 they were 35 for three at one point. Ian Edwards (70 not out) and Ryan Edwards (70) then put on 144 for the fourth wicket.

After two early wickets Gavin Tregenza came back to end with three for 30. Ian Goldsworthy and Toby Whiteford added 49 for Troon's first wicket.

Daniel Mitchell made 24 but the game looked over at 121 for eight.

Tregenza (56) offered some late resistance with a half century. Ryan Edwards took four for 15 from eight overs.

Nicky Stevens took three for 23 and Nathan Pobega two for 52.

Newquay 239, Penzance 209

NEWQUAY had to dig deep to maintain top spot, at the Sports Centre. Joe Crane made 21 but when skipper Adam Cocking was out for 43 half the side were dismissed for 125.

Evergreen Godfrey Furse made 33 before a club record tenth wicket partnership of 55 between Richard Spall (36no) and wicketkeeper Lachlan Brace (14) boosted the total. Kyle Moyle took three for 47.

Penzance got off to a good start with Leigh Murray (33) and Dillon Williams (30) putting on 66 before four wickets fell for 15 runs.

Moyle (38) and Josh Fletcher (35) added 59 for the fifth wickets before the innings fell away. Spall completed a good day with three for 64.

Perranarworthal 194, Beacon 117

THERE was some joy at last for Perran as they finally notched their first win.

The visitors' fourth league defeat leaves Beacon nervously looking over their shoulders, in tenth spot and only a dozen points clear of the drop zone.

David Legge made 33 and Michael Stuart 28 but at 111 for seven it looked ominous for the home side.

The tail produced with Simon Blackburn making 82 and Steve Kemp 21. Dave Dowling and Darren Proctor both took three wickets.

Only Robert Trembath (23) and Craig Thomas (10) got double figures for Beacon. They got to 51 for two before the innings collapsed.

Extras added 50 to the total. Phil Bostock (10-4-13-5) and Blackburn (9-3-8-3) both returned excellent figures.

Stithians 227-9, Menheniot Looe 228-6

THIS was a game where both captains led by example with Martin Strick and Ben Millar both hitting centuries.

Stithians were in trouble at 46 for five before Strick came to the rescue to make 119, that included four sixes and 12 fours. Callum Martin was next best with 24. Mike Maiden took three early wickets at a cost of 33 runs.

Similarly Menheniot Looe were 49 for four at one stage before Millar took the game away from the visitors. His 125 not out included nine sixes with victory coming with eight balls to spare.

Martin and Glyn Furnival both took two wickets.

Roche 173-9, Gorran 176-2

A SENSATIONAL opening spell from James Tomlinson saw him take the first five Roche wickets with only 21 on the board.

Adam Brenton stood firm, however, to make 50 and Ian Trudgeon made eight in a stand of 60 for the sixth wicket.

The Roche tail wagged as Mark Trudgeon (40no) and Daniel Best (26no) added an unbroken 69 for the tenth wicket. Tomlinson's impressive figures were 10-5-15-5.

After openers Dan Semple and Kevin Harris made 20 apiece Robin Kendall dominated the Gorran innings to hit 95 not out.

With Tomlinson unbeaten on 23 the home side cruised over the line with over 24 overs to spare.

The Vinter Cup holders St Just eased through to the quarter finals with a 70 run win over Ludgvan.

Gareth May hit 90 in their 181-5. A weakened Hayle team lost to Falmouth by ten wickets after being restricted to 44 for six. Martin Oats took five for 19 to dismiss Truro seconds for 98.

Paul went on to win by seven wickets to set up a quarter final at St Just next Thursday (6pm).

Paul seconds were due to meet Crofty Holman after defeating St Gluvias by eleven runs at Hutchens Park.

A complaint has seen Paul having to concede the tie as they included players that played for the firsts the previous night. A number of regular second XI players were representing Cornwall Schools in their half term matches on the day.
