Dolton 0 Barnstaple AAC 2: Barnstaple AAC went ahead when a free kick from Stuart Cameron sailed straight in and they sealed a first win of the season with Marcus Mahoney's brilliant overhead kick.

Dolton, without a goal in three games after hitting eight against Shebbear, could find no way past Barry Camp. The Ammies goalkeeper kept out a ferocious drive from Simon Ward then saved Tom Robinson's penalty.

Boca Seniors 5 Ilfracombe Town 0: Ilfracombe have failed to score against the champions in the last five meetings.

A cross from Liam Hawkins was deflected in for an own goal and Boca were 3-0 up at the break thanks to Jack Jenkins and Adam Copp.

Copp and sub Kurt Bayliss added the fourth and fifth, and Combe were denied a consolation when Jimmy Thorne saved a penalty from Jordan Alcock.

Shamwickshire Rovers 5 Putford 1: All the goals came in the first half as Shamwickshire went top of the league.

Tom Barton's opener for Rovers was cancelled out by a free kick from Matt Coles.

James Downing then converted a penalty to restore the advantage, defender Tom Willoughby popped up with a goal and James Bateman hit his first two of the season.

Shebbear United 2 Bradworthy 4: John Clayton, with his first goal since signing from Bude Town, Toby Curtis and Dan Furse fired Bradworthy to a 3-0 half-time lead.

Shebbear threatened to come back through Richard Bissett and Martin Davey but Brad could relax when Furse struck on the counter-attack, although they had defender Scott Palmer was carried off with knee ligament damage.

Torridgeside 5 Georgeham and Croyde 1: Former Ilfracombe Town captain Mike Hedden fired his first goal since signing in the summer and Marc Bettiss struck twice to put the home side three up by half time.

Rob Holland made it 4-0 and Paddy Ions stepped off the bench to score the fifth.

Georgeham, with nine players unavailable, managed only a late strike from Ashley Yeo.
