It is as you were at the top of the Jolly’s Drinks ECB Cornwall Premier League after the games involving the top two teams were washed out on Saturday.
Werrington’s visit to Grampound Road and St Just’s to St Austell were both called off. It means the 11-point gap between the two clubs remains ahead of their big clash at Cape Road next Saturday (12.30pm).
Werrington then play Truro, Falmouth and Camborne to complete the season while St Just finish with Grampound Road, Camborne and Truro.
The third wash-out was at Troon, where the derby with Camborne was called off.
Paul played a full game at home to Falmouth but only took five points to leave a 14-point gap between themselves and Troon at the bottom with four games to play. The pair meet on the last day.
Having been put in, Paul were soon in trouble, losing their first four wickets for 27 runs. Former skipper Justin Stephens and George Popperwell did the damage taking two wickets each. Neil Pengelly (32) and Kelvin Snell (19) added 55 for the fifth wicket before three wickets fell at 82.
Matt O’Leary (34) and Harvey James (24) combined well to 59 for the eighth wicket before Stephens wrapped up the innings to end with four for 37 and Antony Angove took three for 29 in the 146 all out.
After losing Chris Farndon cheaply, Richard Kellow (45) and Angove (41) took the score to 97. Both fell within eight runs but Adrian Noott (13) and Jon Udy (16) both got double figures as victory came in the 28th over. Pengelly ended with three for 34.
A late start at Truro saw the game with Callington reduced to 90 overs. After losing openers Tim Marrion and Adam Pascoe cheaply, Tom Sharp held the home innings together making 50 before being eighth out at 136. Rob Harrison (30) and Kyle van Rooyen (22) both contributed.
Matt Robins took four for 29 and Jim Shorten three for 33 as Truro got to 148 all out in the last over.
Harrison struck an early blow to dismiss Robins immediately. Jake Libby went on to make 38 but at 76 for seven the visitors were staring at defeat. Chris Davies (19) and Andrew Jones (23 not out) held out for the first Premier League draw for six weeks. Harrison ended with four for 28 and Andrew Taylor three for 29.
In County One, Redruth’s march to the title continued at Penzance with an emphatic win in a 40-over game.
Harry Bolland made 112 and Dave Guffick 64 in an opening stand of 171 . Redruth ended on 268 for four, before Penzance were shot out for 37.
