KIPPAX SUNDAYS hosted the weekend’s sole surviving game in the Leeds Combination League but the goals rained in for leaders HT Sports who left with a 5-2 victory and a Steve Palfrey hat-trick.

Richard Jackson and Jonathan White both netted for the third-bottom hosts but Palfrey’s treble together with strikes from Jay Davis and Lee Turner gave Sports the victory that opened up a three-point gap back to second-placed Whitkirk Wanderers who have also played a game more. Third-placed Hope Inn Whites are six points behind Sports but with three games in hand.
