Honiton Town shipped six goals, Axminster Town net a point, Honiton RFC in home success - all the results from local football and rugby on the final Saturday of November

Honiton Town shipped three goals either side of half-time as they went down 6-0 at home to Brixham.

The defeat was a ninth for the Hippos in 16 SWP League outings and they sit 14th with 19 points from their matches to date.

Axminster Town are now just one place and one point worse off after they banked a point from a 1-1 Tiger Way draw with Elburton Villa. Mark Scott saw red and so the Tigers played almost a third of the contest a man light, but a Richard Hebditch goal ensured they bagged a share of the spoils that their all-round performance deserved.

Ottery St Mary made it back-to-back home wins as they secured a second Scott Richards Solicitors Devon League South & West win of the season, beating Plymstock United 3-1 at Washbrook Meadow.
