CALLUM Verhees hit six of the best as Moorends Stingers Under 11s effectively sealed the Division One title with a 9-1 win at near neighbours Thorne Colliery Juniors.

Brad Gutteridge, Samuel Drury and Lewis Tinsley also netted for the Stingers who sit 15 points clear at the top of the table with three games to play. Callum Bisby fired back for Thorne.

Another one of the Stingers’ neighbours did them a major favour as a James Mattocks inspired Dunscroft Welfare handed out a 6-2 mauling to Moorends’ nearest rivals Danum Juniors.

Mattocks scored all six for Dunscroft against Danum, who must now win all five remaining games and hope Moorends lose their matches to have a chance of winning the title.

Dunscroft Welfare Under 12s moved level at the top of the Division Two table after edging out leaders Mexborough Rovers 4-3 in a thrilling contest.

Welfare sit in second on goal difference but have a game in hand over Mexborough in what has become a red hot title race.

Goals from Adam Clarke, Kaine Whitrod, Owen Smith and Bailey Lindsey handed Dunscroft the win.

Third placed Babworth Rovers may yet have a say in the title race after winning 7-0 at Bawtry Juniors.

Matthew Satterley grabbed a hat trick only for Fishlake Falcons U12s to suffer a 5-3 defeat to Ordsall Rangers in Division One.

Moorends Under 14s suffered a 6-1 defeat to Askern Town in Division One.

Ben Poulston netted Moorends’ solitary strike.

Dunscroft Welfare Under 13s were beaten 1-0 by Barnburgh and Harlington in Division One.

Welfare’s Under 16s edged out Premier Division rivals Bentley Pumas 3-2 courtesy of strikes from Jordan Irwin, Danny Standish and Zack Cooper.
