HEMMENS stamped their authority on the Devon Supplementary Cup with a 2-0 victory over Division Two title rivals Kings Arms on Sunday.A Lee Fry double did the damage - the first after only two minutes and second five minutes from time - to inflict the first defeat on the rampant Kings so far this season.Hemmens manager, Colin James, said: "This was by far the best performance of the season and you can see the lads are just getting better and better with every game. "There were a few defining moments in the game including a top draw save from keeper Ryan James when the scores were 1-0."Kings spokesperson Dave Filer singled out stand-in man-of-the-match goalkeeper Ross Ripon for praise."Ross went in goal and if it wasn't for him, the score might have been a lot more in Hemmings' favour," he said.In Division One, things didn't start very well for high-fliers J&A Cameras at East-the-Water. The Vets went 2-0 down before half time, despite hosts Pollyfield having a man sent off early on.Andrew Parkhouse fired one back for the visitors after the break before a tactical switch by manager Adrian Lynch began to produce something resembling football.Right-back Terry Wheaton moved up from defence to form a three man attack for the Snappers, while Scott Langmead slotted into a central defensive role.The move seemed to work, Matt Cann scoring the equaliser from a corner and player-manager Lynch heading home an identical in-swinger soon after.Ahead for the first time of the match, Parkhouse finished things off with two late, well-taken goals to send the Vets back to the top of the table.In Division Two, Anchor Chiefs maintained their promotion credentials with a hard-fought 3-2 win at home to Waterfront Tavern.After a shaky start by the Chiefs, Tavern debutant Andrew Fee put the visitors in front only to concede a penalty minutes later.Pegged back by Shayne Voisey's converted spot-kick - and by Fee's sending off - the Tavern battled on. They were given a reprieve five minutes later when the Chiefs' Tom Berry was also given his marching orders, this time for bad language.The sending off turned the match on its head, both teams pushing forward before Alex Boreham's driven free kick found Sam Ashton, to give the Tavern the break on 32 minutes. After half-time, the Chiefs came out strong, with substitute Nathan Barnes making a big difference to the game. Voisey scored his second of the game to level the scores after 65 minutes.And as the game headed towards a draw, Shaun Hastings hit a fantastic last minute goal and topped off a man-of-the-match display with "Premiership-style" knee slide celebration.
