St Mellion handed West test in team semi-finals
ST MELLION will face West Cornwall in next February's Cornwall Team Championship semi-finals.
There will be a new name on the top Cornwall Golf Union team trophy next year as holders Trevose were knocked out 7½-5¼ by north coast neighbours St Enodoc at Newquay.
At the same time St Mellion were beating last year's runners-up Perranporth 7¼-5½ in their quarter-final at St Enodoc.
In next February's semi-finals, Rock-based St Enodoc will play Camborne's Tehidy Park, who edged past Bude and North Cornwall 7¾-5 at Trevose.

St Mellion face Lelant's West Cornwall, Sunday's biggest winners following a big 9¼- 3½ win over Newquay at Perranporth.
The date for the semi-finals, Sunday February 24, is fixed but venues still have to be confirmed.
St Mellion touring professional James Ruth (above) is set to tee off in the first of six rounds for the final stage of qualifying for next year's PGA European Tour.
The 27-year-old Plymothian – who was raised in Tavistock – recently finished joint fifth in second stage qualifying at Lumine Golf and Beach Club in Tarragona, Spain.
Now Ruth will again repeat last year's feat of competing at the PGA Catalunya Resort and final stage of tour qualifying.
A total of 73 players have earned a chance to bid for a European Tour card in Girona, starting today.
Those who made the cut will be joined by exempt players – including Wembury-based Scottish ace Scott Drummond – as they return to Spain for the gruelling six-round marathon of final stage over the next six days.
The best 25 players and ties gain a Category 11b membership of the European Tour and those making the cut after four rounds earn a category for the Challenge Tour.
Fourth-placed University of Plymouth's British Universities and Colleges Sport Premier South midweek match against second placed Bournemouth at Dudsbury was postponed.
Plymouth's top student golfers were seeking to build on an emphatic 5-1 home win over Cardiff Metropolitan University at Staddon Heights.
Next Wednesday University of Plymouth are set to meet another team of Welsh visitors at Staddon, University of Wales Newport.
