Clyst St George were not helped by the across-the-board washout of the Francis Clark Devon League last Saturday.
The Bohea Field men were hoping to play, and defeat, Chagford which would have eased their plight at the foot of the C Division table.
With every team in the section picking up six points – with the exception of basement side Yelverton (8) and champions-elect Bideford (7), it means no change in table positions with just two games to play.
This Saturday, Clyst St George head for Bideford knowing that they will need to become only the third team this term to defeat the North Devon side, if they are to avoid slipping down to the D Division.
Third bottom Plymouth Civil Service and Roborough go into their penultimate game at home to Ottery St Mary, with a 13 point advantage over the Bohea Field men.
Only a win in North Devon for Clyst and an Otters success in Plymouth would leave Clyst in charge of their own destiny the following week when they end their season at home to Plymouth Civil Service and Roborough.
Clyst St George II sit 29 points from safety in the 2nd XI C Division and play the only team to sit below them in the section, already doomed Honiton II, this Saturday.
There is hope for the Bohea Field men, but only if they win their last two, they play at Clyst Hydon II on the final day of the season.
To effect a great escape Clyst must bank maximum points this weekend then thump their hosts the week after; and hope Clyst Hydon come unstuck at Thorverton II this Saturday!
