Bideford surrendered their unbeaten record in Western Counties West when they lost 29-0 at Kingsbridge.
Defeat cost Bideford their share of the divisional leadership with St Austell and dropped them down to third in the table.
Bradley Goaman, the Bideford team manager, said his side could have no complaints.
Kingsbridge deserved to win as they were the better side," said Goaman.
"I can't fault any of the players efforts on the pitch against a strong Kingsbridge side.
