The Lyme Regis men's championship side gave their chances of survival in the top league a boost, with a fine 8-2 win at home to Sherborne, writes Paul Moffitt.
However, Lyme Two men's woes continue, as they suffered a whitewash reversal in their home meeting with Portland Victoria.
The ladies had their game against Dorchester called off at the last moment because, after heavy rain, the conditions were deemed too dangerous.
With only one friendly played this week, it was the home team who won against Den Teignmouth.
