Charlie Wayman doubled the advantage as Saints moved to the top of the table.
1955: Saints 3 Exeter 0 Saints produced a fine second half display as they trounced Exeter at The Dell to remain in third in Division 3 (South). Tommy Mulgrew scored twice and John Hoskins once as Saints extended their unbeaten run to nine games.
