Torridgeside reached double figures as they heaped misery on Budleigh Salterton in the South West Peninsula League East Division on Saturday.

T-Side beat second-from-bottom Budleigh 11-0 at Donnacroft for their biggest win since joining the league in 2016.

There were five goals for Marc Bettiss in the win, and two each of Brian Levien and Sam Fishwick.

Neil Bettiss and Kyle Paine also scored for the hosts, who sit ninth in the East Division, albeit with games in hand.

Ilfracombe Town suffered their first away defeat of the season, losing 7-2 to frontrunners Elmore.

The Bluebirds found themselves 4-1 down at half-time. Jordan Bastin opened the scoring after three minutes and had sealed his hat-trick in the 35th.

CJ Roberts had pulled Ilfracombe back to 2-1 before Bastin got his third. Jamie Mudge made it 4-1 before the break.

The Bluebirds struck first in the second half with a Joe Seldon header getting them back to 4-2, but two goals from Jesse Howe and one from Stuart Davies wrapped up the win for the hosts.

Next up to visit Elmore is Appledore, who go to the league leaders on Wednesday night after a 2-1 defeat to Axminster Town on Saturday.

The Fishermen were in control in the first half. Ben Whitecross gave them the lead after latching on to a through ball from Nick Glover and finishing one-on-one.

A disjointed second half saw the Tigers capitalise. Jonny Hurford and Tony Pinder scored the goals for visitors to snatch the three points.

“We controlled it in the first half and we should have had it wrapped up after 35 minutes,” said manager Keith Shapland.

“We’ve had a few good games prior to that and I thought we had turned a corner from the start of the season. It was ours to lose at half-time and in the second half we were all at sea.”

Holsworthy are up to fifth in the West Division after a 2-1 win over Penzance.

Max Macdonald and Joe Barker scored the goals for the Magpies.

All four Peninsula League sides are in action in the Throgmorton Devon Premier Cup this Saturday.

Appledore travel to Witheridge and Holsworthy are at home to Brixham.

Both Ilfracombe Town and Torridgeside have trips to Plymouth and West Devon League opponents. T-Side play Saltram Athletic, while Ilfracombe take on Chaddlewood Miners Old Boys.
