Defending Doncaster Sunday Alliance League Premier Division champions Sprotbrough beat both the weather and Stainforth.

Sam Agar and Tom McLoughlan shared the goals in Sprotbrough’s 2-1 win on a day when much of the league programme fell victim to frozen pitches.

Leaders Canal Tavern, for whom Darren Fell (2) and Adam Freeborn netted, claimed a 4-3 win at Leger Lions in the only other top flight game to survive.

Goals by Dan Robinson, Michael Wibberley and Matt Kilvington failed to save Carpenters Arms from a 4-3 defeat at Rossington United in the only Championship game to go ahead.

Armthorpe Village had to settle for a Wayne Adams consolation when crashing to a 10-1 Division One defeat at home to Eve’s Trust Dynamo’s.

Adam & Steve posted a 5-0 win over visiting Hatfield Town.

Dillion Henry bagged a brace for the winners with Shaun Hardisty, James Hendry and David Colakovic also chipping in.

Terry McCoombe proved too hot to handle on a bitterly cold day when scoring five of C&R Sports’ goals in their 8-4 win over visiting Arksey Victoria.

Niall Horstead, David Stewart and Chris Colley completed the scoring.

FC Ivanhoe’s player-manager Craig Dallas claimed eight of the Sprotbrough-based team’s goals in their 13-2 Division Two romp at Balby CSV.

Christian Hughes weighed in with a brace and Sam Booker and Matt O’Hara got in on the act as the visitors notched one of the biggest wins in their history.

Carl Hinsley and Tom Bentham were the Balby marksmen.

Callum Blackie and Adam Tyrer secured Palfreys Lodge a 2-1 win over visiting Balby Rovers in the only Division Three game.
