Boca Seniors won 5-4 for the second week running to maintain their excellent start in the North Devon League.
The Barnstaple side beat Bideford reserves to extend their winning run to eight games in the Premier Division.
Ciaron Lishman (two), Jimmy Hill, Elliot Whitecross and Tom Popham scored as Boca followed up last week's win over Barnstaple AAC with another high-scoring victory.
After two defeats and two draws in their first eight games, Bideford have already dropped more points than they did during the whole of last season.
Torridgeside are also struggling to match last season's standards after a 6-3 defeat at home to North Molton. The champions took an early lead through Simon Grigg but were stunned by hat-tricks from Jamie Giffard and Chris Dent as North Molton eased to their biggest win. Harry Stevens and Matt Bolton (penalty) got the other goals for Torridgeside.
Torrington stayed third after hitting back from a goal down to win 5-1 at Ilfracombe Town thanks to Dan Wilson, Danny Jenkins and a George Bartlett hat-trick.
Four players scored two goals as Bradworthy thrashed Georgeham and Croyde 10-1. Liam Curtis, Dan Furse, Gary Clarke and Mike Sampson led the way as Brad ended a run of five defeats in style. Nick Lapham and Matt Carter got their other goals with Sam Johnson on target for the Hammers who have lost five on the bounce.
Braunton remain top after a hard-earned win at Appledore where Scott Maynard gave them a first-half lead. Rob Avery equalised with a superb finish before late goals from Callum Norman and Simon Townsend secured the points.
Giles Daniel (penalty) and Stuart Cameron were on target for Barnstaple AAC in a 2-0 victory at Shebbear United.
