The wet weather again caused mass postponements in the South West Peninsula League Premier Division week, but at least three games did survive on Saturday and all saw the winning sides climb the table.

Tavistock are up two places to third after they won 4-2 away at second-placed Plymouth Argyle reserves in a lunchtime kick-off at Coach Road.

Stoke Gabriel reached the dizzy heights of the top six, albeit having played more games than most, with a 5-0 win at home to Callington Town, and Newquay bounced back from some poor results to beat Exmouth Town 1-0 at Mount Wise and that helped the Peppermints climb two places to ninth.

Twenty-four hours earlier, Cornwall Senior Cup holders and multiple winners in recent years, Bodmin Town, were knocked out at the last eight stage by a Torpoint Athletic side who fought back from two-down at the break to win 3-2 with a late, late winner.

Torpoint join Mousehole, Saltash United and St Austell in the semi-finals with the draw due to take place next Tuesday and the matches in early March.
