TOPSHAM Town prevented Newtown widening their lead at the top of Premier Division when they struck in the 85th minute to snatch a 2-1 victory.

It was a win Topsham felt they deserved after taking the lead through Ashley Cummings. Newtown's Corey O'Donoghue scored their equaliser, before Ashley Mcdermid then found the net.

Chagford are still without a point but gave second-placed Bickleigh a run for their money before losing 2-0.
