It was 2-0on the half hour as Stock burst forward to drive the ball past Paulton keeper Sean Salter.
Six minutes after the restart Paulton pulled a goal back as Will Osbourne's shot was deflected sailing over Welton keeper Josh Mathews.
The heavy pitch was taking its toll on both teams legs but Welton stretched their lead on 79 minutes as a Paulton misplaced pass was fastened on to Ford to shoot passed Salter.
