Marriott and Satici both got another goal each and Eddie Allsop netted a penalty, while Steve Winchcombe scored a late double for Auto.
Elsewhere in the division, Swiss Chalet Rangers blew a two-goal lead but recovered to defeat Lower Stratton 4-2.

In the second period Rangers were in the ascendancy and re-took the lead on the hour when a good move was finished by Lewis Polden.
Within five minutes the lead was doubled when Sean Irwin sprung the offside trap and smashed home to make it 4-2, and that was how it stayed.
