Wright on mark as Navy fight back to beat Kings
SUBSTITUTE Chris Wright clinched the winner for Navy Inn as they came from behind to beat Kings Tamerton 2-1.
The first half was particularly well-contested, and Tamerton took the lead when Darren West scored from the spot, after striker Robbie Almond was brought down in the box.
Navy Inn responded quickly, though, with Michael Burke applying the finish after a solo run. They then made a change in midfield at the interval which shifted the momentum in their favour.

Their opponents, on the other hand, were uninspired in the second half, and tired towards the end, with Navy continuing to press.
Wright's decisive goal came 20 minutes from time, so there was still time for Tamerton to test keeper Luke Fletcher from range, but he was more than equal to the attempts.
PLYMOUTH United B put in a great team performance to secure their biggest win of the season, with an 8-0 triumph over Princetown.
Chris Coombes notched four, with Chris O'Gorman putting in a man of the match display with a hat-trick, while Adam Levi also got in on the act.
The winning margin, which keeps United in contact with several teams above them, was a fair reflection of United's performance, with the clean sheet adding to their delight.
Princetown's prospects were not helped by the fact they had to play much of the game with 10 men due to injury.
The only downside for United was when O'Gorman was taken off late on as a precaution due to a hamstring niggle.
Braces from Andy Milne and Scott Parsons helped Navy Inn Reserves to comfortable 6-1 win over Keyham Kolts Seniors.
The victors started like a train, leading 4-1 at half-time, and although the game petered out later on, they added a couple more goals to put a gloss on the result.
Mike Honeywell made his mark, and Chris Acton netted the goal of the game from 30 yards, but it was Parsons' display that really stood out.
DEVON SENIOR CUP QUARTER-FINAL
LEVI LANDRICOMBE hit a hat-trick as Railway Inn won 3-1 at Windmill.
Windmill drew first blood when Ryan Honey capitalised on a poor punch out by the keeper to slot home.
But Landricombe grabbed his first to level the scores in a move involving Lance Bailey and Ryan Richards.
On the half-hour mark, Landricombe doubled Railway's tally, profiting from some great wing-play from Ben Joyce.
Windmill had periods of pressure, but struggled in the final third, while Landricombe was at his clinical best, grabbing his third from just inside the box after some good work by substitute Glynn Hobbs.
Centre-backs Matt David and Mike Landricombe were outstanding at the back, absorbing Windmill pressure in what was an end to end game.
SUPPLEMENTARY CUP GROUP B
AN INJURY-time strike from Marc Williams salvaged a point for Friary Vaults B in a dramatic 4-4 draw with club-mates Friary Vaults A.
Brett Oliver got the ball rolling, putting the A side ahead inside 10 minutes.
Jack Jones then equalised, before Luke Redding regained them the lead for A team just after the break with a cross that looped in.
The senior side then appeared to be pulling clear when Andy Cordner dinked over a helpless keeper to establish a two-goal advantage.
They were pegged back, however, when Don Veloso reduced the B team's arrears.
Jason Williams soon made it all square, but the A side again took the initiative through Cordner, who later had to come off with a suspected broken ankle.
But just as it seemed the first team had earned bragging rights, Williams, who was a threat all game, scored to secure a deserved point for the Division Three outfit.
