St Blazey and Bodmin book their spots in FA Vase third round

Comments (0)

Today's draw for the third round proper of the FA Carlsberg Vase will contain two of the three Carlsberg South West Peninsula Premier sides participating in Saturday's second round.

Bodmin Town easily disposed of Toolstation Western League outfit Odd Down at Priory Park, while St Blazey travelled to Sherborne Town and triumphed 4-1.

The odd side out were St Austell, who led 2-0 at the interval of their tie at Poltair Park, only for Wiltshire' Bemerton Heath Harlequins to score three second-half goals and take their place in today's proceedings.

Mike Body rounded the visiting goalkeeper to give St Austell a third-minute lead with Chris Reski converting Dan Lean's cross to notch their second 12 minutes before the break.

Harlequins took just five minutes of the second half for Dan Young to pull a goal back and he had levelled the scores before Jake Slade spotted goalkeeper Anton Lake off his line to lob the visitors' winner ten minutes from time.

Bodmin made short work of Odd Down and were leading their step five opponents 5-0 before Joe Vyner hit a last-minute consolation for the visitors.

Glyn Hobbs and Chris Luxton have both been on target as the reigning Peninsula League champions led 2-0 at the break and their dominance was confirmed with second-half goals from Sam Matthews, Shane Krac and Olly Brokenshire.

Lewis Coombes was St Blazey's hero in their 4-1 victory at Sherborne, where the former Plymouth Argyle apprentice helped himself to a fine hat-trick after Josh Sims had opened their account after just ten minutes.

The South West Peninsula League programme saw two unwanted records ended and two managers resign after their side's had both suffered defeat.

Division One West side Foxhole Stars, after 14 straight defeats, finally tasted victory when goals from Ryan Wilkins and 16-year-old substitute Aiden Killen saw them beat Mousehole 2-1.

Premier Division Penzance travelled to Bovey Tracey off the back of 18 straight defeats and were two goals up, through Harry Corin and Joel McWilliams, but had to settle for their first point of the season after the Moorlanders levelled with second-half goals from Ben Head and Lewis Plackett.

Bovey's draw was the final straw for their player-manager Roger Bonaparte, who resigned after the match.

Bonaparte was not alone as Liskeard Athletic's 3-0 home defeat to Witheridge, who had Dan Thompson, Steve Ebdy and Jordan Charran scoring their goals, led to Martin Burgess leaving Lux Park.

Tavistock moved up to third in the table after their 2-1 success at Torpoint Athletic, who took the lead through Shane White. Goals from Carlton Farnham and Jarryd Kelly gave the Lambs the points.

Elburton Villa's hopes of joining Tavistock on 34 points were crushed when goals from Jamie Chamberlain and Jordan Lamm saw them lose 2-1 at Liverton United.
