Spen Valley League leaders Route One Rovers, who are averaging more than four goals a game, proved too potent for Abundant Life Church.

The eighth-placed hosts kept up their three goals per game tally, Aaron Irving (2) and Ryan Mitchell netting, but they conceded seven as Rovers extended their advantage at the Premier Division summit to six points on another rain-hit afternoon.

Shoaib Hussain was Fairbank United’s hero with a hat-trick as they triumphed 6-2 at Ravensthorpe Bulls, with Bilal Saleem (2) and Kamran Khan also among United’s scorers, as Paul Beaumont and Paddy Davies replied.

George Healey climbed to third in Division One after a 2-1 home victory over Howden Clough. Luke Newsome got both of Healey’s goals, with Simon Moore being Clough’s marksman.

Leaders Marsh showed no mercy to hosts Smokin’ Aces, winning 7-1 with Mark Wigley (4), Andrew Shingleton, David Webster and Andrew Milner on target.

The shock of the day was second-placed Savile United’s 3-2 home defeat against Norfolk, who rose two places to fifth after Saif Akbar (2) and Ismail Loonat netted for them. Faisal Asam and Mohammed Shoaib scored for United.
