"We have got Dartmouth next and we need to get maximum points. We're relying on winning there and picking up what we can from Exeter University and New Cross."
Avery's young team were in contention at half time, trailing 11-8, but two penalties from Andy Rive secured the win for Totnes who climbed above South Molton into second place.
Dave Shinner scored an early try for Totnes, with Rive adding a couple of penalties.
With Charlie Bazell impressing after switching from centre to the back row, Torrington responded with Rob Ovenell's first try of the season.
Bill Ellis, who usually plays football for the town on a Saturday afternoon, kicked a penalty.
"A couple of months ago, I wouldn't have been too disappointed but because of the position we are in it's hard to take," said Avery.
"It's a tough league for youngsters and, I would rather not, but is being relegated the worst thing that can happen?"
