Evans adds gloss as United get revenge for painful cup defeat
PLYMOUTH UNITED gained revenge for last weekend's cup exit by beating a lacklustre Lamorna Keltic 4-1.
They went behind to a long-range effort from Darren Hunt, but deservedly led at the interval thanks to a John Kay header and a Steve Evans curler.
United continued their dominance in the second half, with a fantastic lob from distance from Craig Lauderdale and a well-worked Evans goal sealing the points.

Lamorna were missing players and looked deflated once they went behind.
LOWLY Drakes Drum battled to a creditable 2-2 draw with leaders Bar Sol Ona Reserves.
Lee Peart put the visitors ahead from a classy set-piece, but goals either side of half-time put Drakes Drum in the driving seat before Dave Davies levelled with five minutes to go.
Bar Sol had goalie James Carr to thank for a standout performance which included several smart saves.
Friary Vaults B were guilty of missing chances in a 3-1 defeat at Keyham Kolts Seniors.
A Craig Parnowski double and a Joe Stamp effort won Keyham the game, and although Mark Williams netted from a Simon Sutherland cross, Friary couldn't find their shooting boots.
Kyle Mudge was the main culprit, but Sutherland also squandered openings.
DEVON SUNDAY SENIOR CUP ROUND TWO
A FINE performance from Glyn Hobbs put Kings Tamerton to the sword in a 9-2 home win for Railway Inn.
The frontman notched a hat-trick, which included a strike from long-range, while Ryan Richards also struck a treble as Railway comprehensively outplayed their opponents.
Despite a five-goal half-time cushion, they didn't relent as Dmitri Kanaki and Lee Coxon netted in the second half, while keeper Mike Roberts converted a spot-kick.
Tamerton had Steve Turner dismissed for a mistimed, last man challenge, but scored late on through Chris Carter and Dan Squire.
Bristol Castle matched favourites Windmill for an hour before falling to a 5-0 loss.
The game was marred by injuries to both sides, with Castle stopper Jason Bull concussed, while Sam Alexander sustained a serious thigh injury.
Ryan Honey led Windmill with a hat-trick, with Shaun Jones and sub Sam Stevens also finding the net, though Castle gave a good account of themselves.
DEVON SUNDAY SUPPLEMENTARY CUP ROUND TWO
FC DUKE came within touching distance of a shock win against Division Two rivals Team Badlands, but were edged out 4-3 after extra-time.
They twice led the table-toppers thanks to an own-goal and Jon McCreery strike, but Badlands pegged them back almost immediately on both occasions.
Extra-time saw the victors lead for the first time before Chris Maslin scored a penalty to level, but Badlands had enough in the tank to find a winner.
Keeper Ben Dixon came out to score a brace, while Tom Blackler and Joe Knight grabbed the others after Badlands had played the first half with 10 men.
Pete Widdecombe's last-minute winner caused an upset as Division Three's Barne Barton Rangers beat Melbourne Inn 2-1.
The underdogs had Ryan Cork to thank for their other goal.
Walkhampton overcame early Barnes United resistance to thrash them 7-0.
Ryan Smale scored two in each half, while David Greenwood's brace and Chris Shutt's strike rounded things off.
Bluebird United dominated much of the opening 45 minutes but went down 5-1 to Seymour Arms at Eggbuckland.
Goals from Adam Lake and John Tremblett came against the run of play, and while Bluebird halved the deficit, they fell apart in the second half.
Tremblett added another, with Chris Head scoring twice to make things comfortable.
Kings Tamerton B started quickly in a 4-1 triumph over nine-man Saltram Athletic.
They raced into a two-goal lead and Saltram's hopes faded further when both Brad Oliver and Ashley Simons were red carded in the 55th minute.
However, Graham Traynor's trademark free-kick gave Saltram a sniff, but as fatigue took hold, Tamerton added a further two goals.
Rob Almond, Ryan Pace, Taylor Grimrod and Mike Neal were their goalscorers, while Saltram manager Robbie Nankivell praised his team's spirited display.
