The top three in the South West Peninsula League Premier Division table all played and all won on Saturday, with the trio putting some daylight between them and the chasing pack.
Leaders Saltash United had a 2-0 win at home to Helston Athletic, which was enough to stay above Tavistock on goal difference with the Lambs equalling the Ashes score as they also won 2-0 at home.
Tavistock`s win came over St Austell at Langsford Park with the Lilywhites the only side in the top eight to drop points.
Plymouth Argyle cemented their third place in the table with a 6-1 win away at lowly Newquay, but both Bodmin Town in fifth and Exmouth Town in seventh had no game, but in between them in sixth are Plymouth Parkway, who got back to winning ways after three straight defeats as they beat Cullompton Rangers 6-1 at Bolitho Park.
Tiverton Town reserves in eight spot again showed why they are such good value to watch as they won a nine-goal thriller 5-4 away at lowly Ivybridge Town.
The Tivvy team have scored and conceded a combined 122 goals in 28 games this season.
Away from the top eight just one side collected maximum points and that was Camelford, who leap-frogged opponents Callington Town with a 5-1 win at Trefew Park which pulls the Camels well clear of the relegation zone.
Right at the foot of the table there was a change of position as St Blazey drew 1-1 at home to a Witheridge side who themselves will be pleased with the away point.
The Blaise Park club have now moved onto five points and ahead of Newquay on goal difference, made clearer by the Peppermints 1-6 defeat to Argyle.
Two other matches ended in score draws as Launceston and Godolphin Atlantic drew 1-1 with each other at Pennygillam, whilst Torpoint Athletic and Falmouth Town shared six goals in a 3-3 draw at The Mill.
