MAIN Line Social stayed top of the Premier Division pile with Sunday’s 3-2 success at home to Pudsey Juniors Old Boys.

Ryan Craven and Mickie Fletcher both netted for sixth-placed Pudsey but a double from Bradley Francis-White plus a Ryan McQuade strike gave the hosts their seventh league win of the campaign.

Main Line remain two points ahead of second-placed Barwick who were 2-1 winners at third-placed Horsforth Fairweather.

A Liam McHale strike was in vain for the hosts and Barwick’s position is strengthened by the fact that they also have a game in hand on the division’s leaders.

At the other end of the table, Daisy booted clear of the bottom two by edging a 4-3 cracker at second-bottom Waggon Athletic.

A Danny Walker hat-trick was in vain for the hosts as two goals from Shane Collins plus one each from Bradley Green and Stephen Quinn gave Daisy an important victory.

Fourth-bottom Colton also eased their relegation fears with a 5-2 win at bottom side Original Oak.

Two goals from Mike O’Brien led the way for Colton whose Richard Varley, Paul Ferguson and Danny Davy all added one each.

Kieran Fahy, Jamie Corrigan and Danny Harrison all netted one each for the victorious visitors in the face of a Tom Lee strike for the hosts.

Old Ball remain second on goal difference after their 2-0 triumph at home to bottom club Khalsa United.

Leodis United shot up to fourth with a 5-1 triumph at home to East Leeds AFC who have dropped to fifth.

Two goals from Ryan Holmes plus one apiece from Jordan Mudd, Ryan Bartram and Alex Johnson sealed a five-star performance from Leodis with Adam Kerrigan the solitary scorer for East Leeds.

Fourth-bottom Acorn (Bramley) enjoyed a 3-2 win at home to Horsforth Saints through two goals from Josh Simpson plus one from James Murphy.

There were goals galore in Division Three with second-placed AFC Travellers going in 6-3 at second bottom Bedford Arms Wakefield.

A Nick Buckley brace and Ben Barstow strike led the Bedford fight.

There was also a red-letter day for Dalesman Hotel who enjoyed their first league win of the season through a 3-0 success at home to mid-table Wortley Brick.

Daniel Hudson, Daniel Lock and Antony Frater all struck for Dalesman who are now only bottom on goal difference,

AFC Travellers jumped to third as Daniel Flesher’s five-goal haul inspired a 6-4 win at third-bottom Millshaw Park Rangers.

Chris Wilson also struck for Travellers as goals from Jordan Bradford, Isaac Denn, Adam Jarrett and Tom Snowden failed to save Rangers.

Away from league action, Division One relegation-battlers Garforth Villa booked their place in the Luty Cup semi-finals with a 3-1 win at home to bottom tier visitors Amaranth Twenty 13 after extra-time. Plucky Amaranth took Garforth to the wire thanks to a Scott Plunkett strike but Jamie Scott’s hat-trick ultimately sent the hosts through.

There’s a big game in Division One this coming weekend as leaders Whitkirk Wanderers travel to second-placed Seacroft.
