Budleigh ladies were 5-1 winners at Barnstaple to make it three wins from three and stay top of the table, writes Olly White.
The Robinettes started nonchalantly and struggled to find their shape and fell behind.
Half an hour in Budleigh begun to find a rhythm and began to create chances. Just before half-time Céline White left the defenders standing and drilled a shot into the bottom left corner.
The second half was all Budleigh and with mounting pressure on the Barum and it was no surprise when they took the lead with Lucy Richardson the scorer, instinctively slotting home from close range after a well worked move. Anita James anchored the back four with Hélène Jan providing stability with her experience of the European game.
Liv Young made it 3-1 after a neat through ball from Stacie Rogers set her up for a sweetly struck finish.
Céline White used her pace to slot two further goals and complete a hat-trick, picking up the Player of the Match award in the process and sealing a 5-1 victory for Budleigh.
The Robinettes are back in action on Sunday when Plainmoor visit Greenway Lane.
