Bideford host Dolton on Wednesday with the chance to put further ground between themselves and the chasing pack ahead of two meeting with Torridgeside this month.
After last week's 3-0 victory over Boca Seniors, Torridgeside repeated the scoreline against Braunton.
Marc Bettiss struck twice before half time and Paddy Ions converted a penalty, sealing their 12th win in a row.
Boca Seniors bounced back in style, firing 17 goals in two games over the weekend – seven of those coming from Scott Sharp.
The champions had few problems at Bradworthy where Sharp (two), Matt Deakin (two), Mark Gilfillan and Mark Barrow gave them a 6-1 success.
And it was even more one-sided today as Sharp hit five in an 11-3 destruction of Shebbear United at the Tarka Centre.
Shebbear only trailed 4-2 at the break but Mark Galliford (two), Mark Turner (two) Gilfillan and an own goal completed the scoring.
