Glovers and Grecians stage dramatic comebacks

There were wins Yeovil and Exeter City today.

Yeovil Town have climbed off the bottom of League One after coming from behind to beat ten-man Notts County. The hosts had Gary Jones sent off for a two-footed tackle, then went ahead when Mike Petrasso latched onto a poor backpass. But Jordan Clarke scored twice in the last ten minutes to secure the three points for Gary Johnson's men.

In League Two, Exeter City also came from behind to beat Shrewsbury at St James Park. The visitors led 2-0 at half-time, but a Tom Nichols double and David Wheeler turned the game around.

Plymouth Argyle suffered their first defeat in 8 games, going down 1-0 at Mansfield. Kelvin Mellor had Argyle's best chance, but hit the crossbar with an open goal.

And in the Conference, Torquay United drew 2-2 with Gateshead at Plainmoor. The Gulls were leading for most of the match after Ryan Bowman's 8th minute penalty. The visitors then scored twice in the last five minutes, but Bowman rescued a point in stoppage time.

Plymouth Argyle have moved up to fourth in League Two after a comfortable win in the 'Dockside Derby' over Portsmouth.

There was early excitement at Home Park. Lewis Alessandra was brought down in the box in the sixth minute, and Reuben Reid confidently scored from the spot.

Fifteen minutes later the advantage was doubled. Kelvin Mellor teeing up Alessandra for a clincal finish.

And it was soon 3-0 as Portsmouth couldn't cope with Argyle's attacking prowess. Mellor the provider once again, this time settting up Reid for his second of the game.

No more goals in the second half, but the Pilgrims did come close. Lee Cox hit the cross bar. Deane Smalley saw his shot saved by former Exeter City goalkeeper Paul Jones. And Jones denied Smalley again when he tipped the substitute's shot onto the post.

An accident investigator has told the inquest into the deaths of Nick and Emily Milligan in Padstow that Mrs Milligan was steering the boat into harbour for a break.

But Mr Milligan and their four children wanted to go for another ride. Mr Milligan grabbed the wheel and the throttle.

Captain Mike Evans told the inquest in Truro that the boat went from idling speed to full throttle. He said it went to the right and suddenly and violently rolled back and threw the family of six into the water.

The out of control boat circled on full power, hitting several members of the family.

The kill cord is a safety device which cuts the engine in an emergency. Seven people had died and 12 injured.

Captain Mike Evans, from the Marine Accident Investigation Branch, said the use of a kill cord in fundamental and should be second nature for powerboat users.
