Striker bags a magnificent seven as Torrie go top.

DANNY Jenkins scored seven goals for Torrington to send his side back to the top of the Senior Division table.

Torrie romped to a 7-0 half-time lead at home to North Molton Reserves, with Arlo Reddick and Matt Bryce adding to the goal haul against a stunned Stags side at Vicarage Field.

Cousins combined to sink Pilton Academicals at Rock Park on Saturday. Ben Sherborne gave visitors Shamwickshire Rovers Reserves the lead before cousin Sam Brend doubled the deficit.

Matt Dellar pulled one back for Pilton who were unable to capitalise after Sherborne was shown a second yellow for diving.

In the division’s other game, Sam McCreadie scored a second-half equaliser for Braunton Reserves in a 1-1 draw at Woolsery.

Lynton managed to get a game in at the weekend albeit in the Holman Cup. Efforts by manager Steve Hobbs and reserve team boss Alex Spice to get the pitch playable for Sunday afternoon paid off as Lynton beat Merton 3-0 in the Holman Cup quarter-final.

After 0-0 half-time scoreline, the game sparked into life four minutes after the break when Max Smith rose highest to head in from a great Duncan Almond corner.

Craig Corry made it 2-0 on 75 minutes with a neat finish from the edge of the box after coming off the bench only three minutes earlier.

Chris Peacock was then lucky to escape a red card when he fouled a Merton striker through on goal but this was the only blot on what was otherwise another strong defensive performance from the back three.

Merton also had a strong shout for a penalty near the end but Lynton wrapped the game up when Stefan Phillips’ well-weighted through-ball found Almond who made no mistake with the game’s third goal.
