With the better weather and lighter evenings, many teams are now catching up with their fixtures.

Unfortunately, with the number of matches to play, some teams appear to be struggling to raise a team and are deciding to forfeit the match.

The most important match of the week was the eagerly awaited South/West Final between Plympton Ladies from the Premier Division and SB Oak Villa from the division below, which was played at Buckfastleigh Rangers' ground.

An enthusiastic crowd was treated to an entertaining encounter which resulted in a 4-2 win for SB Oak Villa.

Rachel Finch scored twice with Kelsey Bligh and Vicky Jasper also on target.

Sam Metters replied with both goals for Plympton.

The defeat was softened for Plympton as news came through that their nearest rivals for the league title, Budleigh Salterton, had lost 4-0 to Teignmouth, and with it their hopes of catching the leaders.

Chloe Driscoll, Suzy Osborne, Mollie Hembridge and Jennifer Hammond scoring the goals for the Teigns.

Westexe Park Rangers and Crediton United met twice in in five days with Westexe winning one 1-0 and the other game ending in a 2 - 2 draw.

Imogen Luke and Maddie Walker scored for Westexe, with Molly Tomkins and Hayleigh Wyle - Smith replying.

Teignmouth also played two games in a week, and having upset Budleigh Salterton, put three goals past Fremington without reply.

Braunton Women were also busy, pushing table toppers Appledore close in a 2-3 defeat, who won with goals from Beth Ellis, Chelsea and Poppy Cloke.

They then drew with second place Honiton Town in a 3-3 draw.

Honiton Town played their mid-week game away against RBL Alphington and eased to a 5-0 win, with goals from Abi Breban (2), Hannah Rendle (2) and Cheyenne Howells.

Shaldon Villa entertained Paignton Villa on Thursday evening and collected all three points with a 5-1 win.

Nashya Paz bagged a hattrick, with Vashti German and Georgia Tibbs adding the others.

Jess Barker scored the visitor's consolation goal.

On the same night, Signal Box edged a low scoring match 2-1 at home to Horrabridge Rangers.

A goal apiece from Mollie Dring, Chloe Ingham, Emily Jackson and Katherine Treharne gave Lakeside Athletic a 4-1 home win over Hunters District, who replied through Chloe Thompson.

Despite a good performance, two goals from Natasha Kiff and one from Cassie Lee, Plainmoor were disappointed to lose 5-3 to Elm United.
