Tibshelf Town’s recent run of fine form was maintained in style in NAPIT division one as they easily beat Brampton Rovers 7-0 on Easter Sunday.
A testament to their fine all round team play was the fact that six different players got on the score sheet.
They were: Scott Vardy, Ben James, Ross Armstrong, Richard Bunning, Dean Bramley, and Sam Harris, the seventh goal being an own goal.
Doe Lea Villa, fresh from their Derbyshire Cup triumph seven days earlier, registered a two-goal advantage over opponents Creswell Seniors through Kerry Cooke and Mario Slater.
However, any thoughts of a comfortable victory were dashed as Creswell battled back bravely to draw level thanks to goals from Ryan Newbold and Ross Whitehead.
In the end Villa had just enough quality to shade the game 3-2 thanks to Grant Weston’s late strike.
Bolsover Town took on Killamarsh Juniors Athletic and Steve Jones double strike was matched by efforts from N Unwin and A Parsons.
In division two Highfield closed the gap on leaders Hollingwood to three points with a 3-0 win over Clowne Wanderers, D Fields scoring twice, J Hill once.
Bolsover Old Boys’ promotion challenge continued with a victory over Brickmakers.
Old Boys took the early initiative racing into a two-goal lead through Daly Furness and Paul Cook.
Brickmakers did pull a goal back but a second for Furness settled the matter.
AFC Brampton recorded a solid 5-0 win over Rowthorne Lane SC with D Isaacs scoring twice.
In division three Blacksmiths Arms beat CCS Industry 5-2 and Staveley All Inn beat Creswell Rose and Crown 3-0, their goals coming from Bingham who scored twice and McArdle.
Chesterfield Town’s Dwayne Wiley was in fine form in the fourth division hitting a treble in his side’s 6-2 victory over Crown Killamarsh Utd.
Also on target for Town were Marcus Galloway, Danny Rigby and Aaron Lally.
In a close game at Red Lion it was the hosts who just held the upper hand against New Inn Newton with goals from Aiden Ordidge and Danny Sharpe cancelling out an effort from D Hutchinson.
Barrow Hill MC could not quite manage double figures against Brimington Utd seven days earlier but on Sunday the division five side put 13 past hapless Hunloke Arms.
Scorers were Chris Cave 5, Ryan Whittaker 4, P Crookes 2, R Kaspriski and R Whitmore.
Brimington Utd played much better at Walton but still lost 3-2, Wright scoring twice for Walton.
North Wingfield beat Chesterfield Arms 3-1, Dronfield Woodhouse beat Brampton Rovers JMA 3-1 and Harleys/Scarlets won 5-0 at Midland Hotel, R Hutchinson and R Wells both scoring twice in the win.
Hopflower Utd remain favourites to win NAPIT six after L Jackson scored three in a 6-1 win at Brimington Club.
In a much closer affair at Bull and Badger a goal from G Page was enough to beat Gate Inn.
Another close game saw Clowne Wanderers Reserves win 3-2 at Holmebrook Tavern while goals from Craig Ritchie, who scored twice and J Machin saw New Nags Head win 3-0 at Hasland Community.
Spread Eagle and AFC Bolsover shared four goals and the points in seven, D Kirk scoring both Eagle goals O Henry doing likewise for Bolsover.
Barlow Kingston Rovers just edged out Corner House 2-1, Stevenson and Rhodes with the winning goals while AFC Angel beat Boythorpe 2-1.
The battle for runners up spot in eight swung in favour of North Wingfield MW who beat main challengers Chesterfield Phoenix 4-0 with A Wake leading the charge with two goals.
