PREMIER Division champions St Martins are out of the East Devon Senior Cup after losing 5-3 on penalties against Feniton.

The Saints blew a two-goal lead after Jamie Chamberlain's brace as goals from Ben Allen and Andrew Jones pulled Fenny level and the visitors won it after converting a controversial re-taken penalty in the shootout.

Beer Albion also won on penalties 4-3 at Thorverton, where it also finished 2-2. Chris Long scored both Beer goals with Andy Langabeer and Lee Radford netting for Thorverton but ironically then both missed penalties in their shootout.

Beacon Knights set the pace in Division Two beating Elmore 4-2, with Chris Down getting his second hat-trick. Dan Holman added the fourth.

Offwell came from two down to beat Winkleigh 6-3 in Division Three. Euan Carnelly (2), Liam Spiller, Jamie Doidge, Craig Sluman and an Ollie Cramer special did the job for Rangers.

Hemyock won 2-1 at North Tawton, with Adam Farmer and Paul Moralee scoring.

In Division Four Adam Cowling notched twice for Axminster in their 3-1 win at Okehampton, Glen Harding also scoring.

Newtown were held 2-2 by Axmouth United, Mike Blinkhorne and Matt Peligry scoring. Reece Hales had both Axmouth goals.

Simon Durrant notched a hat-trick for Tedburn as they beat Seaton 4-0. Sam Reeve also scored. Whipton & Pinhoe were unable to raise a side for their tie at Woodbury and fears are the Exeter club could fold.
