LYME Regis moved to the brink of winning the Devon & Exeter League Premier East mini-league after crushing Kentisbeare 6-2 at Davey Fort.

Lyme host Chard Reserves on Saturday (12.30pm) knowing any result other than a loss will result in silverware.

Feniton are one point ahead with a goal difference nine strikes worse off than the Seasiders.

After a 3-0 win over Chard, Lyme continued in the same vein as ex-Bridport defender Cameron Vere struck.

Kentisbeare were level on 13 minutes when Aidan Moyle’s effort beat Brett Garner after a weak clearance.

However, a timely return to goalscoring form for Joe Bond took the game away from Kentisbeare.

Striker Bond pounced on a goalkeeping error to make it 2-1 and then netted the rebound from a dazzling Fred Parsons shot to extend Lyme’s advantage.

There was still space for a fourth before half-time as Brad Rowe showed panache to round Kentisbeare’s overworked keeper for 4-1.

Kentisbeare gave themselves hope with a fortuitous second after the break as Luke Horne’s wayward cross flew into the top corner past Garner.

The concession only served to fire up Lyme as Bond tapped home Rowe’s cut-back for his 26th Lyme hat-trick.

Tyler Wellman completed the scoring and Lyme were denied a seventh when Ben Vine’s strike was ruled out for offside.

Lyme: Bond, Bastin, Daniels, Fellingham, Garner, Parsons, Pollard-Jones, Rowe, R Sargent, Vere, K Wellman. Subs: Daines, Rendell, Vine, T Wellman.
