Tavistock CFC...1 Sporting Lipson...2
SPORTING started the strongest in a cup tie in which both sides were trying to play good football.
The visitors were creating chances and went 1-0 up after the ball was cleared by a Tavistock defender, which fell to Dan Ferguson, who then played the ball straight back into the penalty box with Liam Willcocks reacting and tucking the ball home.
Tavistock then levelled with a fine finish following a flowing move to make the scoreline 1-1 at the break.
The second period followed the same pattern as the first half, but it was Lipson who made the breakthrough, going 2-1 up through Josh Hemmings.
Tavistock then put Lipson under a lot of pressure and created some good opportunities. But the crossbar and also Lipson goalkeeper Joe Scholes made some very important saves to deny Tavistock the equaliser.
VANGUARD LEAGUE UNDER 12 CUP
Plymouth Trophyman...8 Weston Mill...1
WITH a semi-final place at stake, it was Weston Mill who were quickest out of the blocks, scoring after five minutes.
However, the goal only served to awaken Trophyman who, playing good football, levelled after 10 minutes through Zack Watson.
Trophyman took the lead a few minutes later with a looping shot from Akaysha Raymond and then Kian Nation netted to send his side in 3-1 up at half-time.
Trophyman continued where they left off in the opening period in the second half, stroking the ball around and deservedly going 4-1 up through Jay Jones, before more goals from Nation and Raymond, with the seventh goal coming from a fine cross from Watson on the left for Jack Harrison to volley home.
Jones netted Trophyman's final goal from a corner kick flicking the ball into the net from a corner kick.
Credit, though, to Weston Mill as they kept going and had a few chances but found the Trophyman goalkeeper in excellent form.
Elburton Villa...7 Plymouth Kolts...1
ELBURTON continued their unbeaten campaign in cup and league this season with an impressive victory over a strong Kolts' side.
Villa began slowly but soon found their rhythm when Brinley Jessep Crook found the back of the net.
Further goals came from man-of-the-match Liam Pardon, Tom Vietch and Jake Favis. Vaughan was the man of the match for Kolts.
13 SCOTT CUP Staddiscombe Colts...1 Callington Colts Juniors...9
HAT-tricks from Corey Freeman and Ben Maciver-Redwood eased Callington into the semi-finals at the expense of gritty Staddiscombe.
The visitors dominated the early stages and quickly went ahead through winger Jamie Williams.
Freeman doubled their advantage before Sam Smith pulled one back for the hosts from a corner. But it was one-way traffic after that.
The pick of Maciver-Redwood's goals was an individual effort. He picked up the ball on the halfway line and beat four defenders before firing into the far corner of the net.
Williams scored a second and Luke Pearce got in on the scoring act, too.
The outstanding performer of the match was Staddiscombe goalkeeper Tarek Souiai. He made several superb saves, and the hosts showed great spirit to keep battling to the end against a strong Callington side.
13 ASTRO CUP
MAP Academy Juniors...2 Weston Mill...0
HOLDERS Marine Academy Juniors were pushed all the way by Weston Mill before nailing the victory in the last few minutes.
After an even start MAP slowly began to gain the upper hand with Matt Warman putting the cup holders into a 1-0 lead.
In the second half MAP stepped up a gear and continued to push for a second goal, but Weston Mill did have chances of their own with man of the match Mason Hewwings having to clear a shot off the MAP line.
Weston Mill tried their best to create chances but the MAP defence was resolute and refused to be breached.
But with only a 1-0 lead in MAP's favour the game was still far from safe. However, the introduction of Harvey Tomlinson 10 minutes from time proved crucial.
The substitute received the ball on the right from a clever Joe Coutts' switch and Tomlinson hit the perfect cross with Warman thundering the ball into the back of the Mill net, thus taking MAP into the next round.
14 RALEIGH CUP
Modbury...2 Plymouth Trophyman...5
CAVEY and Cole both scored twice and Knuth a single goal as Trophyman eased past Modbury and into the next round of the cup.
14 PLYMOUTH CUP
Elburton Villa...4 Callington Colts...3
GOALS from Sean Brown, who netted twice, and Alex Payne and Louis Gerson enabled Elburton to reach round three but only after being given a scare by Callington.
The visitors, beaten 7-2 by Elburton last week, romped into a 2-0 lead before their hosts settled down and began play the ball to feet.
Interplay between Sean Brown and Toby Moss unselfishly provided Gerson with the chance to narrow the deficit which he took.
Trailing 2-1 going into the second perid, Elburton came out of the blocks and in under a minute scored the equaliser, through Payne with his first goal for the club.
Brown bagged his two goals late in the game before Callington narrowed the gap to 4-3 to set up a frantic last few minutes.
15 DEFIANCE CUP
Hooe Rovers...2 Elburton Villa...6
VILLA were indebted to two-goal strikes from the trio of Adam O'Brien, Owen Weymouth and James Saunders for their victory over hosts Hooe.
Despite the visitors' dominance the deadlock was not broken until midway through the first half when Saunders scored.
The second Villa goal came soon after through Weymouth, who also slotted home his side's third after fine play from Saunders.
Rovers hit back and cut the deficit to 3-2 in the second period, but Villa rode the storm with O'Brien scoring from a Fraser Cowan cross.
Villa's fifth was scored by Saunders before O'Brien netted his second.
15 ROYAL OAK CUP
Elm United...8 AC Plymouth...3
ELM stormed into the next round with a convincing victory over AC.
The hosts raced into a 3-0 lead with Polish striker Kamil Mickelwisz scoring a hat-trick only for AC to hit back and make it 3-2 at the break.
A half-time ticking off from Elm manager, Adrian Gee, had the desired effect as his side scored five unanswered goals from Ward ( 2), Lloyd Gray with his first for the club, Liam Caiels and another from Micklewiscz.
AC gained some consolation with a late penalty.
15 ANSON CUP
Plymouth Kolts Juniors...1 MAP Juniors...4
MAP booked their place in the league cup semi final with an emphatic away win at Kolts.
The visitors took the lead after 11 minutes when Matthew Cooper found space and his shot flew past the keeper and into the net. Five minutes later they doubled their advantage when Dan Tate met a cross to finish with a superb side-foot volley that gave the keeper no chance.
It was much of the same after the interval but Kolts continued to battle away. Connor Mcauley picked up a loose ball midway through the half and beat a couple players before rifling his shot into the net as it cannoned off the underside of the crossbar. Later in the half Matthew Cooper latched onto a great through ball to calmly lob the advancing keeper for his second of the match.
Just before the full time whistle Kolts got a consolation goal as a superb strike from outside the area found the back of the net. The winners' man of the match was Sam Harris with a great display.
DEVON COUNTY UNDER-18 CUP SECOND ROUND
Tamerton...5 Sporting Lipson...5 (aet Sporting win 5-3 on pens)
LIPSON prevailed in a high-scoring tie between two evenly-matched sides.
Ross Glibberry scored a hat-trick and Jack Worth netted twice in regular time.
But Tamerton were always in the hunt and the sides were only separated by the proverbial nail-biting penalty shoot-out.
13 VIVID CUP
MAP Juniors...2 Hooe Rovers...0
MAP Juniors are safely through to the next round of the cup but they were made to work hard for it by a committed and organised Hooe team, who owed much to the form of their goalkeeper Ella Price.
Nevertheless, the two-goal score-line showed a major improvement by Rovers who had lost 10-1 to MAP at the start of the season.
MAP scored a goal in each half, and there were impressive debuts for Katie Haynes and Shannon Archer for Hooe.
