National league promotion-seeking Isca have returned to the Davis Wood Hockey League summit following back-to-back weekend derby wins in Exeter.
Simon Tremlett's side beat University of Exeter B 5-0 just hours after a 5-2 win at Exeter & Culm Vale Hornets to soar five points clear at the top of the Premiership.
Jordan Hussell (2) Sam Lynch, Tom Whitworth and Jon Wright scored for Isca against Hornets.
Hussell and Wright both scored twice in Isca's Sunday win, when Tom Poustie was also on target.
In the Championship third-placed Truro – Cornwall's top men's team – drew 0-0 with fifth-placed University of Exeter C on Sunday.
Truro skipper Alex Money said: "Although it was goalless it was a great game."
In West Clubs Women's Hockey League Premier 2B, Newquay – skippered by Leanne Manley – swept up to third following a 3-2 home win over Teign.
Top scorer Helen Stubbs, and fellow forwards Phoebe Williams and Zoe Waitz scored for Newquay, now level on points with second-placed Westberries from Bristol.
