DEFENDER Shaun Ley has been described as a "rock" at the heart of Boca Seniors' back four this season; and on Sunday, he was the main man as his side beat Barnstaple AAC on penalties to land a third Westward Ho! Cup - and third treble - in as many years.The defender stepped in to don the gloves after goalkeeper Jimmy Thorne was shown a straight red card for handling the ball outside of the box with around 25 minutes of normal time left to play. With Boca leading 2-1, he was immediately called upon to save brilliantly from Scott Sharp's resulting free-kick.The Ammies did finally make their extra-man advantage count with a Sharp equaliser that sent the game into extra-time. And with the scores locked at 2-2 at the final whistle, it was Ley who separated the two sides by saving twice in the tense Mill Road spot-kick decider.As Taro Bishop slotted home the winning penalty, Ley was mobbed by a charge of team mates led by the appreciative Thorne.The Ammies took a first half lead in the all-Barnstaple battle through Mark Beades. Jake Crush equalised minutes before the break and captain Mark Barrow gave Boca the lead from the spot mid-way into the second half.With Torrington awarded their Senior Division title silverware during the half-time break at Monday's Hansen Cup final, there is little left to play for at the top end of the division.But at the bottom, Clovelly are celebrating a massive achievement of their own after winning three of their last five and vacating the bottom-spot for the first time since September.Martin Edwards, Robin Kearney and Edward Johns scored the goals in a big 3-2 Wednesday night win against a first-team-laden Shamwickshire Reserves side."You could see what it meant to the players on the pitch at the final whistle," said manager Johns, speaking to the Gazette yesterday (Tuesday)."From where the team has come this season, we've proved what we're capable of now we've got a squad together."We got together last night and appointed a new manager in David Keene and we're looking forward to progressing from the foundations we have built this season."It remains to be seen whether the win will keep Clovelly up, but matching Combe Martin Reserves' result in their last game of the season will certainly keep them off the bottom.Pilton Academicals were also celebrating a good result this week, a 3-2 win against Shebbear United that moved the Accies into seventh spot. Barry Yates opened the scoring by crashing one in off the crossbar from distance, while James Gregory and Aidan McCarthy were also on target for Pilton, who play their final game of the season against Northam Lions tonight (Wednesday). Also in the division, Neil Tweedie scored the only goal for Bratton Fleming in a 3-1 defeat at home to Chittlehampton.Intermediate One side Torrington Reserves signed off their 2008/09 season with a 4-1 Hansen Cup final win against Northam Lions Reserves on Monday.The Super Greens took a 1-0 lead through James Bateman before the Lions leveled the scores before the half-time break. But Torrie turned on the style after the re-start, Bateman setting up Steve Robinson for the second in front of the 150-strong Bank Holiday home support at Vicarage Field.In the last 15 minutes, Paul Gumbley made it 3-1 before Bateman then set up Craig Stewart for the fourth.Greens' defender Joseph Kahrs was named the man-of-the-match.Meanwhile in the league, Bude Town are capable of causing a major upset in the division when they entertain season-long leaders Landkey at Broad Close Hill this Saturday. Bude have only dropped two points since the last day of January and their title challenge has gained some serious momentum of late.The Cornishmen were set to play Northam Lions at Burrough Farm last night (Tuesday). A win in that game would leave them three points behind Landkey going into Saturday's showdown decider. Mike Rippon's side have a slightly superior goal difference, but a good win would see Bude snatch the title in the most dramatic of circumstances.Meanwhile, Merton signed off their first season back in the North Devon League with a 2-2 draw at Northam Lions Reserves.A 2-1 Wednesday night win has given Buckland Brewer a three point lead at the top of Intermediate Two in their final game of the season. Matt Horn and Steven Tucker scored the important goals in the win at Bradworthy Reserves; a victory that now leaves John Adams' side with an anxious wait to see whether they'll be crowned champions this Saturday.Rivals Lynton are three points behind but with a far superior goal difference. A win at lowly Torridgeside will hand them the title.Ilfracombe Town Thirds secured third spot in the division with a thumping 10-0 win against North Molton Thirds on Saturday. Top scorer Andros Stavrinou scored four, while Sam Brown scored two to bring his season tally to 12. Kenny Robertson, Daniel Bushell, Tristan Leech and Jordan Alcock all scored singles.A free-kick against the run of play saw Pilton Academicals Reserves go behind at Bradworthy Reserves, only for the Accies to hit back with a Dave Coggin goal to level the scores at half-time.Pilton failed to capitalise on a series of first half chances but did make their forward play count after the re-start. Centre-back Lee Ellis ran into the box unchecked to head home Coggin's corner kick. And front-man Gary Grant broke clear to drive the ball beyond the advancing goal-keeper soon after. Wing-man Sam Hommell was unlucky to see a succession of chances ping back off the woodwork, including a dipping strike from the right side of the penalty area that smashed back off the top-corner with the keeper well beaten. The two sides will get to do it all again when they meet in their final game of the season at Rock Park this Saturday.Bratton Fleming Reserves bagged their eighth win of the season with a 5-2 win at Chittlehampton Reserves. Jason Lewis and Sean Childs both scored two, while Nathan Elliott added the fifth
