Come Martin 4 Park United 4: A late equaliser from Mark Hill gave Park United a hard-earned point after they trailed four times.

Simon Townsend, Brady Sanders and Cassian Blackmore put Come Martin 3-2 up in a five-goal first half at Hollands Park.

After pulling level through Mark Lee and a free kick from James Rees, United seemed to be getting on top when Kevin Buck ended his goal drought to make it 3-3.

But Townsend added a controversial fourth for the hosts, playing to the whistle while players from both sides waited for him to be ruled offside.

Goalkeeper James Greenleaf, expecting a free kick to be given, had rolled the ball into his path.

Park refused to lie down and their effort was rewarded with a stinging strike from Hill two minutes from time.

Ashwater 2 South Molton 2: Paul Yard saved Craig Darby's penalty to help South Molton end a run of five consecutive defeats.

The Images trailed at half time as Darby and Luke Potter, with a strike from the edge of the area, put Ashwater in control.

Joe Southcott pulled one back and, after Yard denied Darby with a full-stretch save, Dave Isaac grabbed the equaliser.

Braunton 3 Northam Lions 0: Billy Rhoads put Braunton ahead with his second goal in two games and Sam Box scored twice to seal a straightforward victory for Braunton.

Woolsery 2 Pilton Academicals 0: First-half strikes from Jack Smallridge and Tom Ball were enough to send Woolsery up to fifth with their third straight win.
