PUBLISHED: 13:31 13 November 2018
Feniton claimed only their third win of the Macron League top flight season when they defeated Feniton 5-0.
The Acland Park side also bagged themselves a first clean sheet success of the season – at the 13th attempt.
The Fenny goals were scored by the evergreen Phil Everett, two from Louis Hilton and one each from Ben Allan and Oscar Walsh.
The win takes Feniton to 10 points from as many league games and they are now three places and two points clear of the top fight re-election zone.
Colyton recovered from a goal down to defeat visiting Topsham Town 7-2, with the goals being scored by George Richards (2), Alex Wheatley (2), Jake Collier, Will Richards and Mark Hancock.
There were only four Premier Division games that beat the weather and Seaton Town emerged as the top flight leading scorers on the day as they thrashed Okehampton Argyle 9-2 to move above them in the table – sending Argyle to the foot of the table.
Reece Best-Edwards led the scoring honours with a hat-trick and the other Town goals came from James Hill (2), Bradley Masters, Liam Riste, Scott Jennings and Josh French.
In Division Two, Axminster Town Reserves shared four goals with Tipton St John in an entertaining Tiger Way match.
Axmouth United lost 4-1 to visiting East Budleigh and, in another Division Three game, Otterton won 3-1 at Budleigh Salterton Reserves.
In Division Four, Feniton Reserves went down 6-0 at Hemyock.
A total of 27 league games and one cup tie were postponed on the first seriously soggy Saturday of the football season.
