St John Fisher sit three points clear at the top of the Heavy Woollen Sunday League Premier Division with Rob Hiscox’s double doing the damage against Millbridge WMC.

Andy Godding and Ricky Newman were also on target in a 4-0 victory as their side created an early gap between their nearest rivals for the title.

Newly-promoted Oakwell Motel were in fine form as they gained their first Premier Division win of the season after hammering fellow newcomers Battyeford 6-1.

Remarkably, they had six different goalscorers during the one-sided rout as their players saw the efforts shared out.

Nathan Hallas, Jordan Midwood, Jack Anderson, Jonny Beverley, Rob Ives and Ashley Peel all netted for Oakwell as they racked up the big scoreline.

Ben Williams was the sole scorer for Battyeford who had no answer to their opponents’ power and pace.

Thornhill Lees, meanwhile, won a fiercely-contested derby match 4-2 against their near neighbours Overthorpe Sports Club.

Aiden Schofield struck twice to set the lead and Elliot Williams and Nathan Kemp also netted for Lees.

Overthorpe replyed through Jamie Beever and Tom Abbott but could not battle back to share the spoils.

A Joel Farrar double ensured current champions Birkenshaw started their season off with three points.

In a close affair, they won 2-1 at AFC Chickenley, whose only goal came from the on-target Daniel Tolson.

Mount Pleasant lead the Championship after maintaining their perfect start to the season with an entertaining 6-3 win at Hartshead. Mohammed Patel was unplayable at times as he led the way with a hat-trick.

Adam Ali Ravat, Raees Lorgat and Adam Rawat also got in on the act as Mount hit Hartshead for six.

Their opponents replied through a Daniel Laidlaw brace, plus a strike from Christian Webster.

But they were always chasing their rivals who stayed ahead to complete the win. Kieran Corley was another player to net a treble.

He fired a hat-trick as Mirfield Town won 5-3 at Woodkirk Valley to preserve their unblemished start.

Michael Rounding and Chris Meeson hit the others, with Scott Love, Ryan Hartley and an own goal replying for hard-working Woodkirk. Birstall St Patricks shared the spoils with Barr Street in a 2-2 draw.

Graham Fahy and Darren Mc Donald netted for Birstall.

Dwayne Wilkinson and Daniel Stuart earned a point for the visitors.

Richard Hartley and James Reily both scored as Heckmondwike Sports Club earned their first victory of the season to get up and running. That was a narrow 2-1 victory over Taylor whose solitary effort came courtesy of Ahmed Seedat’s strike.

St John Fisher Reserves won 3-1 at Marsh.

Their goals came from Tom Overend, Gary Shaw and Joe Crowther.

Liam Roe struck a consolation for Marsh in a game controlled by St John Fisher.
