Launceston United took ruthless advantage of a week off for their pace-setting neighbours Northern Rangers.
United all but condemned Launceston City to the wooden spoon with an 8-1 win at Prospect.
A harsh early red card made City's task all the tougher and United cashed in with goals to Will Rodman (two), Yasin Mohammadi, Sam Lowe, Fahim Moradi, Fletcher Fulton, Shane Egan and Nathan Butler, although surprisingly a blank from their centre forward Chris Pickering.
City's consolation came in scoring the goal of the game through Tristan Nast's late rocket.
"We played well," said United coach Glenn Reading. "It was a good team performance and nice to share the goals around ... except Pickers."
For the third week running, Riverside Olympic returned from the North-West Coast with a 2-1 loss.
A sweetly-struck volley from teenage talent Connor Hannes put them ahead at Ulverstone but the hosts struck back either side of half-time through Tim Read's deflected equaliser and Aaron Shirley's coolly-taken winner.
Olympic coach Andy Hall was frustrated with his travel-weary team.
"We're creating plenty of chances but not putting them away," he said.
"We need to be more ruthless. We're Barcelona one minute and Leeds United the next."
