Thorne Colliery boosted their hopes of a best ever finish in the Central Midlands League Northern Division with a 6-1 demolition of Kinsley Boys.
Skipper Darren Fell led from the front with a hat trick as fourth-placed Thorne gained revenge for a shock defeat at Kinsley last month.
Brett Thomas, Kirk Frost and Glen Hookway also chipped in with goals as Colliery got back on track following back-to-back league defeats.
Harworth Colliery, who have played five games more than Thorne, remain in third spot but they saw their lead cut to ten points after being held to a 1-1 draw at lowly Glapwell.
Kenzie Tomlinson gave Colliery an early lead only for Jack Weaver to level the scores for Glapwell, playing their first home game for three months, on 55 minutes.
Brodsworth Welfare upset the odds when beating sixth-placed Phoenix 3-0. Joe McIntosh bagged a brace for the home side with Shane Carver also finding the net.
Local rivals Bentley Colliery also banked maximum points after winning 4-1 at second-bottom Easington Town to claim their tenth win of the season.
Spencer Maxfield and Josh Copeland put the Doncaster side 2-0 up at the break.
The home side piled the pressure on after the break but keeper Mike Teale stood his ground.
Ryan Nicholson added a third against the run of play after Bentley, who climbed a place to ninth, turned defence into attack.
Town’s efforts were finally rewarded with a goal but Copeland’s second in injury time sealed their fate.
Third-bottom Askern Welfare battled out a 2-2 draw with Ollerton Town. Matty Davison and Wayne Lindley shared the Askern goals.
