Lynton and Lynmouth had to come from behind to maintain their unbeaten start to the season at Clovelly on Saturday.
Clovelly, also without a loss going into the match, opened the scoring with an excellent strike from the in-form Nick Brazier but silly mistakes cost them dear as they went on to concede four goals to the visitors.
Merton were unable to hold onto their unbeaten start against a dogged Equalizers side that refuses to accept defeat. After going a goal down against the run of play, the Barnstaple side hit back before the break, Richard Elston scoring his first goal for the club.
At the start of the second half, Andrew Parkhouse got his first of three for the Equalizers who then had a man sent off and saw their opponents fail to capitalise from the resulting penalty.
Down to 10, mistakes at the back saw Merton level and then take a 3-2 lead before Parkhouse made it 3-3 from the penalty spot. Darren Floyde found the net after running behind the defence and with the momentum favouring the depleted visitors, Parkhouse grabbed his 'trick late on to make it 5-3.
Ben Walters scored two to help Sporting Barum on the way to a 3-0 win at Putford Reserves. Samuel Paddon was also on target.
Woolacombe hit five at Buckland Brewer, who have still only played two league games this season.
Wrey Arms picked up their first win of the season at home to AFC Anchor on Saturday. Simon Larcombe scored two and there were singles for Joe Gillard and Lee Holding. Despite the lack of points on the board, the Wrey are still unbeaten in the league, a run of results that stretches back 33 games.
High Bickington thumped Landkey 7-1 and Woolsery Reserves picked up their first win of the season with a 4-0 win at home to Braunton Thirds. Northam Lions Reserves edged Ilfracombe Thirds with a 4-3 victory.
