UNBEATEN Barnstaple FC are now 10 points clear at the top following their latest 5-0 result at home to Anchor Chiefs.
There was a familiar ring to most of the scoring line-up - Tom Nash, Connor Nash, Sam Phillips and Stuart McKinnon – but a first for two years for right back Kane White.
Ilfracombe Town 3rds slipped down to third place following a 1-0 reverse away to Barnstaple AAC Reserves on Sunday.
In a game dominated by a strong wind, Steve Isaac hit the winning goal on the eve of half-time and the Ammies held out against the elements in the second half.
Richard Davey struck four times for Hartland as they kept their place among the contenders with a 4-0 win away to Woolacombe and Mortehoe.
Torrington Reserves had first team striker Danny Jenkins to thank for four of their goals in a 10-goal thriller with Landkey.
Landkey struck first, going 2-0 ahead with a brace by Lee Kerswell before Jenkins netted his first goal. Kerswell completed his hat-trick to make it 3-1 at half-time, but then Torrington came storming back to take a 6-3 lead with three more by Jenkins and two from Arlo Reddick before Chad Luxton hit Landkey’s fourth.
High Bickington were first off the mark at Clovelly with a goal by Robert Hunt and held a 1-0 lead at half-time. Clovelly started better in the second half and Rob Kearney equalised from inside the box. Just as it looked like stalemate, Clovelly gave the ball away and were punished when Fraser Reeves struck a late winner.
Braunton 3rds fell behind at home to Sporting Barum, but Adam Johnston brought them level by the break and Terry Robinson hit a second half goal for a 2-1 win.
Northam Lions Reserves had their keeper controversially red carded in the opening 10 minutes away to Equalizers, but they battled on for a 2-2 draw with goals by Ali Bright and John Van Emmenis.
