Torquay United 3-1 Barrow

Torquay ended a run of 10 matches without a win by beating Barrow at Plainmoor to move off the bottom of the National League.

After a goalless first period, defender Sean McGinty came up from the back and prodded the Gulls in front from a flick-on by fellow stopper Josh Gowling.

George Dowling then gave Gary Owers' men a cushion with a beautiful dart past his marker and tidy finish.

Michee Efete aided and abetted number three when he burst down the right and crossed early for Luke Young to side-foot home.

Barrow substitute Byron Harrison pulled one back with a late penalty after Gowling brought down Luke James in the box, but it was academic.
