A GOAL from Roger Bonaparte gave Godolphin Atlantic a scare but it was not enough for Holsworthy to cause a surprise.

The Magpies held a half-time lead against the leaders of first division (west) in the Carlsberg South West Peninsula League.

But Godolphin scored four in the last half an hour through Ross Fallen, Lee Paxton, Jamie Wigg and Aaron Dilley, winning 4-1 win at Upcott Field.

For an hour, at least, Holsworthy matched their Newquay opponents, taking the lead when Bonaparte's shot from the touchline flew in.

It was the veteran striker's fourth goal in seven games since rejoining the club from Bovey Tracey.

Nick Aplin had a chance to increase the advantage and home keeper Chris Pearce made two smart saves before the visitors took control.

Holsworthy have no fixture this weekend and return to action at home to Truro City on Saturday, February 16.
