With Hope Inn Whites not playing, HT Sports had the chance to leapfrog them in the table, but lost out to New Pudsey keeping them two points off top spot. Luke Kitson, Greg Sargeant and Declan Wilkinson struck for Pudsey while Dave Dennison scored a consolation for HT. That result moved New Pudsey to third, just one point behind HT Sports.

The best of the action came in the fixture between New Armley and Bramley Town as the teams shared 14 goals.

Unfortunately for Bramley, they scored only four of them while Armley grabbed the other ten. Mark Ferguson netted five times and Jordan Tate grabbed a hat-trick and Josh Summers and McCauley Elliott finished off the scoring for New Armley.

Swillington Welfare claimed their first win of the season in the Premier Division by grinding out a 1-0 victory over bottom side Harehills who remain pointless. Fellow strugglers Moortown Albion fell to the same scoreline at home to Rodley who had Bailey Wright to thank for the winner.
