Landkey Town put nine past North Molton to edge closer to the mid-table sanctuary of the North Devon Gazette Premier Division table on Saturday.

Claudio Pinto topped the goal roll of honour with four in a 9-3 win against a Stags side that hasn’t picked up a single point since the 2-0 victory against the same opponents on September 9.

Chad Luxton scored two for Landkey and there were singles for Lee Capner and Daniel Dayman.

Sam Phillips scored two for the Stags and James Tapp scored one in a feisty game which saw referee Gerald Luscombe brandish a fitful of yellow cards.

There were also plenty of goals at Marlborough Park, where Cassian Blackmore and veteran striker Peter Varley both hit hat-tricks in Ilfracombe Town’s 7-1 win against Barnstaple FC.

Robert Taylor also scored for the Bluebirds, while Ryan Elston scored the consolation for Barnstaple.

After losing to Bideford last week Boca Seniors were unable to get back to winning ways against Park United.

Instead, they had to settle for a point in a 2-2 stalemate.

Shane Hookway and Simon Ovey scored for Boca, while Ben Brown and Nick Glover were on target for Park.

There were six different Torridgeside scorers in the 6-1 win against Bradworthy.

Marc Bettiss, Tyler Evans-Loude, George Folland, George NanceKivell, Kyle Paine and Nathan Walter found the net for the leaders, who are now six points clear of Braunton at the top of the table.

Substitute Stanley Furber scored the consolation for the visitors.

Ross Glover and Sam Schiller were on target for Shamwickshire Rovers in a 2-1 win against Shebbear United.

Matthew Coles scored for Shebbear, who are still looking for their first win of the season.

Fremington’s Andy King scored two and Dan Larcombe scored one in a 3-2 win against Appledore Reserves.
