The Lambs got off to a fast start and opened the scoring in the sixth minute when Josh Grant took advantage of a defensive error the ball fell to Tyler Elliott, his pass found Josh Grant who calmly slotted the ball home from eight yards.
The visitors were dominating possession with Camelford finding it difficult to get out of their own half of the pitch. The Lambs created a couple of clear cut chances but home keeper Oldaker made two excellent saves
The Lambs finally doubled their lead on the half hour when a fierce shot from Josh Grant was parried by Oldaker, the ball fell to Tallan Burns who calmly slotted the ball home.
The visitors continued to press high up the field giving them plenty of space out wide to provide numerous crosses into the penalty area. In the 40th minute another terrific cross from the right resulted in a goalmouth scramble, Josh Grant was the first to react and headed home from three yards.
Two minutes later a terrific passing move involving Josh Grant and Tyler Elliot, his fine pass saw Jack Crago fire home from twelve yards, to make it four. The visitors were not done yet and made it five when they were awarded a penalty kick as Tallan Burns was dragged to the ground. Josh Grant flashed the spot kick home to complete a first half hat trick.
The second half saw the Lambs completely dominate possession and it took just three minutes to increase their lead when from a corner kick a Matty David powerful header cannoned back off the upright, Josh Grant was the first to react and slot the ball home.
On the hour Manager Stuart Henderson made his first change with Lewis Daw replacing Dan Evans. Three minutes later Luke Brown replaced Dave Hallett and Sam Davey for Tallan Burns.
The Lambs continued to create more and more chances and if had not been for a great performance by Oldaker making some terrific saves the score could have even worse for the hosts.
With ten minutes to go the Lambs got their eighth goal of the afternoon when Reece Shanley provided an inch perfect cross for Joann Grant to head home from six yards. Camelford were limited to the odd counter attack, in the 85th minute they produced their first real threat on the visitors goal when Josh Oak was called upon to make a really good save from a fine effort from Wishaw.
The Lambs then produced another fine move that opened up the Camelford defence putting Grant in on goal to slot home from twelve yards, to complete his double hat trick. Just before the final whistle a great move saw the ball find Luke Brown, he cut into the penalty area and fired home an unstoppable shot low into the corner of the net.
This was a much better performance by the Lambs, playing at a much higher tempo than of late. This result will bolster their goal difference to put pressure on Exmouth, there is now only three goals between the two teams with three games in hand. They will need to maintain this level of performance for the remaining matches in order to challenge for the title.

Man of the Match was Josh Grant for his double hat trick. The six goals he scored could prove all important at the end of the season.
Manager Stuart Henderson said ” I was pleased that from the onset today we played at a high tempo, we pressed high up the pitch and kept our width. By doing so we were able to stretch and control the game. We were good today and hopefully we can carry this form on to our next game “.
