HAYLE produced a battling second half performance to rescue a point in a 3-3 draw at Penryn Athletic.

Anthony Reynolds' men never gave up and two second half goals earned them a share of the spoils at Kernick.

They had fallen behind to Kayne Trevaskis' 15th minute strike, but were level when Kevin Lawrence executed a superb lob after 37 minutes.

But Penryn raced into a 3-1 lead at the break with a David Broglino free kick and another set piece from Hal Davis putting them in control.

However, Hayle fought back in the second half as Jamie Burr headed home for the visitors.

And Dan Magee, who could join Newquay this week, struck the equaliser in the 68th minute.

Porthleven were 2-1 winners at home to Mousehole on Saturday.

After creating a host of chances Port fell behind to a goal from Anthony Nicholas.

But ten minutes after the break they were level when Freddie Williams' curling effort beat Mickey Flores.

The winner arrived thanks to a Steve Allen header after Tom Annear's shot was saved by Flores.

Penzance's Premier Division fixture at Ivybridge fell victim to the weather. This Saturday the Magpies travel to Elburton Villa (3pm).

Newquay's Cameron Bidgood scored twice to earn Cornwall U18s a point in their South West Counties Championship game at Gloucestershire on Saturday.

The Duchy were trailing 2-0, before Bidgood's second half intervention. After pulling a goal back with the aid of a deflection, the teenager, after seeing his penalty saved, followed up to equalise.

Cornwall's next game is home to Somerset at Penlee Park on Saturday March 9.
