ORIGINAL Oak bagged their first league win of the season by edging an original scoreline at Manston Wanderers.
A hat-trick for Manston’s Dave Pugh proved in vain as Jon Hart’s treble inspired a 7-4 away win to take Oak off the foot of the Premier. Phil Evans and Lee Gormley also both notched doubles for Original who have left Waggon Athletic bottom of the pile. Pugh’s triple and a James Froggatt strike were in vain for Manston who sit seventh.
New basement boys Waggon Athletic were eclipsed 4-2 by sixth-placed visitors JB Celtic. A Matty Dalton hat-trick was supported by a Michael Kelsey strike for Celtic.
And leaders Main Line Social were also felled as fourth-placed visitors Colton got the better of the argument 4-3.
Richard Varley’s double plus strikes from Ben Jones and Ashley Bell did the business for Colton in the face of a Brad Francis-White brace and Chris Snowden strike for Social.
Third-placed Beeston St Anthony’s closed the gap on Social to five points and with five games in hand through a 5-1 chopping of away side Daisy. Graham Stockdale was at the treble for Beeston whose Dan Daley and Ben Greenwood also struck with Jamie Carrington consoling third-bottom Daisy. There were no games in the top flight but Halton Moor breezed into the Sanford Cup semi-finals with a 5-1 win at Queenswood Crusaders for whom Daniel Briscoe was the solitary scorer. Matty James was at the double for Moor whose Adam Ryder, Mickey Nelson and Alex Wilson also netted.
Division One leaders Whitkirk Wanderers were not in action and second-placed Seacroft are now just two points behind after a 2-1 victory at home to bottom club Waterintobeer. Seacroft’s Gary Crossley and Danny Thorp netted one each.
Third-placed New Parnaby saw off third-bottom visitors Swillington Welfare 3-1 thanks to goals from Chris Storey, Richard Wheelhouse and Ryan Ellis. And New Pudsey moved fourth with a 4-1 success at home to sixth-placed Commercial with the home side’s Levi Forber, Tim Lane, Patrick Sutton and Jamie Nolan all netting. Greg Hill consoled Commercial.
Garforth Villa enjoyed a 5-0 win at home to second-bottom Farsley Twenty Tens. Doubles from Shaun Longdon and Jamie Scott plus a Josh Lumley effort sealed a five-star showing. Fifth-placed hosts Engine and eighth-placed Pendas Arms shared a 2-2 draw with doubles from Carlton Binks and Jordan Riley respectively.
Division Two leaders South Leeds Independent marched on as Danny Harrison’s double sank basement visitors Horsforth Saints 2-0. Second-placed Old Ball were flattened 2-1 at fifth-placed Acorn (Bramley) whose Josh Simpson and Darren Fothergill both struck. And goals from Mark Freeman and Jordan Jeffreys sent Chapel Allerton fourth with a 2-0 triumph at fourth-bottom Leodis United.
Kippax Band Club moved eight points clear at the top of Division Two as Tom Mick’s brace sunk second-placed visitors New Unicorn 2-1. Third-placed AFC Travellers obliged 3-1 at third-placed FC West Leeds (Guiseley) whose Daniel Flesher, Nylle Rosendale and Chris Wilson all struck. Andy Serotsky got the Guiseley goal.
Bedford Arms Wakefield moved off the foot of the division with a 4-1 win at home to Millshaw Park Rangers. Two goals from Olly Gibson plus one each from Sam Watson and Nick Buckley sealed victory. Royal Park Leeds moved eighth with a 4-3 verdict at home to Wortley Brick for whom a James Baldwin double and Adam Goodall strike was in vain. Loz Contreras and Dan Riley notched winning doubles for Park. Amaranth Twenty13 were awarded a home walkover against Dalesman Hotel.
