Phillip Jarvis scored four goals as Championship leaders Corpus Christi kept a three-point gap at the top of the table, drawing 5-5 at nearest pursuers Seacroft AFC, who still have games in hand.

James Borrill also netted for the visitors with Seacroft bagging a share of the spoils through two goals from Kieran Goodison plus one each from Jamie Stead, Renal Edwards and Nathaniel Welsh.

Corpus have played four games more than Seacroft and have just four games remaining as opposed to the eight games that both Seacroft and third-placed Badri have left to play.

Badri are a point further back in third and moved into the final of the President’s Trophy after a 3-0 home win over Western Juniors. Andy Brewitt, Jimmay Dao and Jonatahan Daniels all netted a goal apiece.

Seacroft AFC will await in the final in a battle of the two Championship promotion hopefuls.

In a Hope Cup dead rubber, West Leeds Wortley beat visiting Richmond Hill 5-3 to complete the action in Group C which had been long been sorted out on a competitive score.

Wortley’s Mark Ferguson scored three with John Friery and Jordan O’Brien also on target to seal his side’s third-placed finish. Ashley Hubbard scored two and Liam Wood one for Richmond who finish bottom of the pile and without a point.

In the sole Terry Pears Premier game played,

Second-Place East End Park WMC won 4-3 at home against third-places Halfway FC.

Paul Sykes scored three for the hosts with Karl Dickinson also on target. Rich Alexander scored two for the visitors with Elliot Heeds also on target.

In the Leeds Sunday Alliance League, a brilliant hat trick from Luke Craven guided Torpedo Woodhall to a 4-2 success at home to Gascoigne in the Premier Trophy semi final.

Luke Harrop also netted for Torpedo who will play Halfway House Bramley in the final after the travelling side won 2-1 against Seacroft Colts Stallions in extra time. James Penman gave the visitors the lead before Seacroft levelled from a corner.

Both sides gave their all in extra time, but Bramley earned their spot in the final after an unfortunate deflected own goal.

There was only one game in the Leeds Sunday Alliance League Premier Division with seventh-placed Northern Star winning 3-2 against eleventh-place travelling Elford FC.

Stuart Brown, Killean Mabey and Kieron Deighan all found the net for the home side to secure the three points.

Action resumes tomorrow with Seacroft Colts and at home to Northern Star and Torpedo Woodhall welcoming Halfway House Bramley.
