After coming from behind the previous week and taking the points against Stanningley Albion, they took on the champions at Manningham Mills and soon moved two goals in front through a first-half strike by Delroy White, Danny Walker doubling the home side's lead on the restart.
Curtis McMahon halved the deficit immediately afterwards but although Walker grabbed his second with 20 minutes to the whistle, McMahon hit his second with ten minutes to go to give the hosts a nerve-wracking finale.
Buttershaw White Star replaced the champions at the summit with an easy five-goal victory over basement outfit George Hotel, with Andrew Tasker grabbing a brace and further strikes coming from Glyn Beal, Steve Hollingsworth and Graham Sides.
Peel Park raced into a early two-goal lead through a Terence Hargreaves free-kick and a well-taken Mathew Hannan goal against Wyke Wanderers at Peel Park.
The visitors struck back with a penalty by Glyn Hirst just before half-time but the hosts turned the screw in the second half and raced into a commanding lead.
Steve Jarockyj capped a man-of-the-match performance with two quick headed goals, and Hannan added his second before Len Worby sealed the victory, finishing off a fine team goal for the sixth. Chris Edmondson got a consolation for the visitors near the end.
In the First Division, leaders Bradford Phoenix won by the only goal of the match against mid-table Manningham with a Lewis Leighton free-kick just after the interval.

Victoria Rangers sneaked an 11-goal thriller against Thornbury Celtic with a last-minute winner through a Philip Bridle header from a corner.
