Camels give Rangers the hump
THE top of the South West Peninsula League has an unfamiliar appearance as Camelford, Ivybridge Town and Exmouth Town share top spot after the trio recorded their consecutive wins.
Camelford's 7-0 trouncing of bottom club Cullompton Rangers put them in pole position with a two-goal better goal difference.
Josh Insley and Ryan Pooley both scored twice and Liam Sandercock, Andy Boxall and Dan Jennings once.
Premier new boys Exmouoth Town beat Liskeard Athletic 4-0 with Lloyd Gardner and Jamie Mudge both scoring twice to leave the Blues with Cullompton at the bottom of the early table.
Perhaps the most eye-catching result was at Mount Wise where Ivybridge inflicted a first defeat on Newquay, winning 4-3 despite finding themselves two goals adrift after just 17 minutes.
Elliott Simcox fired home in under a minute and Rob Wearne made it 2-0. Ivybridge are a much stronger side this season and they hit back with Andrew Neal scoring from the penalty spot before two goals from Ben Smallridge gave the Bridgers a 3-2 lead.
Back came Newquay, and when Glen Squires was dragged down, Jordan Trott levelled from the penalty spot.
Newquay were reduced to ten men after Shaun Middleton received a straight red card and Joe Truelove ensured the points for Ivybridge with a late winner.
The Premier Division's other new boys, Godolphin Atlantic, drew 0-0 at Torpoint Athletic, where the hosts hit the woodwork on three occasions.
Witheridge won 1-0 at home to Falmouth Town in a game that did not kick off until 4.20pm due to Falmouth's late arrival. The hosts needed just 12 minutes to score through a speculative left-wing cross from Jordan Charran.
Goals from Liam Rice, Jessie Howe plus penalties from Matt Harvey and Mike Humphreys saw Elmore win 4-1 at Bovey Tracey, who had Sam Dicken on target. Launceston won 4-0 at Elburton Villa thanks to Luke Doddridge (two), Sam Davey and Chris Head.
