Chittlehampton 9 Buckland Brewer 2: Trailing to an early strike from Chris Bell, Chittlehampton turned things around in dramatic style.

Nico Pfeiffer hit four, Tom Murray struck twice and Ross Johnson put them 7-2 up by half time. Despite replying with a penalty from Simon Adams, Buckland Brewer were outplayed by a team featuring nine changes from the one they thumped 7-0 in August.

Chittle, showing the benefits of a settled team, completed the rout with goals from subs Adam Thorne and Elliot Smith.

Anchor Chiefs 2 Pilton Academicals 1: Phil Roberts marked his debut for Anchor Chiefs by scoring the winner.

They fell behind to a goal from Antony Higgs but responded positively with an equaliser from defender Terry Hollingsworth before half time.

Pilton, who beat Anchor 4-0 last month, had Barry Yates sent off and Roberts, a former goalkeeper, got the decisive goal 15 minutes from time.

North Molton 0 Putford 5: Bradley Prouse scored twice and Dave Buckpitt, Mike Merrick and Dave Richardson got the others, sending Putford top.
