GEORGEHAM came back from 2-0 down at Lobb Field to beat rivals Braunton 3-2 in the North Devon Premier League Sunday derby clash.Braunton had gone 1-0 up after Graham Green's 40-yard effort was fumbled by Hammer's keeper Jon Vaughan. And they increased the lead when former Georgeham striker Andy Bwye rounded Vaughan early in the second half.But the visitors pulled one back through Darren Harris, and with seven minutes to go, were awarded a controversial penalty by referee Tony Cloak. Dave Newsome dispatched the spot-kick, and with seconds remaining, Tim Scott's injury time winner - a header from a corner - gave Georgeham the unlikely win.Also in the division, Boca Seniors climbed to the top of the table for the first time this season with a 5-2 home win against Combe Martin.Richard Shannon opened the scoring for Boca before Danny Bell's low free-kick levelled the scores. Mark Barrow immediately hit two in quick succession before completing his a hat-trick on the hour mark. A Daniel Mackie own-goal reduced the Combe deficit but Barrow added a fourth with ten minutes remaining to put the game beyond the visitors.After a frozen pitch put last Saturday's fixture with Northam Lions on ice at half-time, similar conditions threatened Pilton Academicals' Rock Park tie with promotion contenders Bratton Fleming. After the pitch was given the all-clear by the referee, the Accies made a lacklustre start to the match and were lucky to trail by only a single Neil Tweedie goal going into half-time. Stern words from manager Stu Lane helped inspire Pilton to something approaching potential and their efforts were awarded when Tom Nash equalised from the spot on 60 minutes. Bratton pulled ahead again directly from Rob Scoines' corner kick, but despite a spirited charge that featured a goal that was chalked off for being offside, Pilton were unable to rescue the point.In Intermediate One, Kieron Heywood, Jamie Hutton, Wayne Hommell and Richard Andrews were all on target in Landkey's 4-0 win against Sporting Barum.On Sunday, Landkey were knocked out of the Hansen Cup after a 5-2 defeat by league rivals Torrington Reserves. Mark Rippon's two volleyed goals were the only consolation for Landkey.
