Georgeham and Croyde 1 Braunton 4: Ross Maynard scored against his former club, maintaining Braunton's fine form with a hard-earned win against their local rivals.

Tom White made it 2-0 by half time before Sean Creely pounced on a defensive mistake to pull one back.

The Hammers gave it a go but Braunton eased clear after Dave Mason scored their third and Scott Maynard converted the fourth from the penalty spot.

Georgeham have proved tricky opponents in the past but the visitors passed the test and remain unbeaten in 2013.

Appledore 1 Dolton 0: A clinical finish from Joe Kelly midway through the second half gave Appledore their fourth consecutive win.

Kelly struck from the edge of the box to round off a flowing move as the Fishermen extended their unbeaten run to seven games.

Dolton, boosted by the return of experienced goalkeeper Ian Harris, played well but paid the price for missed chances.

Chittlehampton 5 Bradworthy 1: Three goals, from James Campbell, Ciaron Lishman and Matthew Jones, had the result effectively sewn up by half time.

Led by a lively performance from Nico Pfeiffer in midfield, Chittlehampton looked sharp. Lishman scored two goals, including a cheeky backheel, and Pfeiffer got the other. Campbell also had a penalty saved and Bradworthy pulled one back through Matthew Carter.

Barnstaple AAC 3 Ilfracombe Town 0: Three second-half goals saw Barnstaple AAC end their wretched run of results.

Billy Hinson charged down an attempted clearance to put them ahead and Ricky Marinaro chipped in the second after beating two defenders.

Home defender Jamie Cameron made a goal-line clearance and conceded a penalty, which Andros Stavrinou could only blast over the bar.

The third goal from Adam Chugg was described as Cantona-esque, the substitute controlling perfectly before scoring an instinctive lob.

Bideford 5 Putford 0: An overhead kick from Phil Kelly provided one of Bideford's goals of the season in a comfortable win.

Will Nicholls scored a hat-trick and substitute Carl Holliman broke forward from left back to fire the fifth.

Last Wednesday, Bideford had to settle for a 1-1 draw with fellow title contenders North Molton at the Sports Ground.

Liam Craze, the midfielder, put the visitors ahead with a ferocious strike from a tight angle.

Bideford, responding positively after their 6-0 drubbing by Boca Seniors, hit back early in the second half.

Sam Stephens, the player-manager, struck from the edge of the box, rounding off a slick move after a backheel from Nathan Bate.
