Connor Nash maintained his remarkable scoring record with another five and the rest came from Tony Burgess (2), Tom Nash, Maurice Charley and Sam Phillips.
Clovelly were another side to fall victim to illness, but after scraping around to find 11 fit players were rewarded with a 3-3 draw away to second-placed Ilfracombe 3rds that was played at Rock Park.
Lee Evans put Clovelly ahead from the penalty spot before Ilfracombe levelled by the break.
Another penalty, this time by Nick Brazier, put Clovelly ahead again. But then tiredness began to set in and Ilfracombe turned the tables to go 3-2 ahead.
A late push gained Clovelly the reward of a point with an equaliser by the youngest player on the pitch Josh Keene, with hius first goal in senior football.
Ilfracombe had Tristan Leach (2) and Ki Standley to thank for their goals.

But then came a Landkey fight-back.
Wayne Thomas hit a hat-trick for Landkey and ‘super sub’ Dan Tolman finished it off with the late matchwinner. Richard Davey (2) and Joe Deakin were the Hartland scorers.
