Sherwood Colliery were winners to the tune of 6-1 at Askern as Gaz Curtis (2), Keenan Leeds, Dave Bullock. Lance Mulligan and Ben Williams shared their goals.
There was disappointment for Ollerton Town who led at the interval but eventually went down 4-2 to Real United, despite goals from Ben Bowring and Lee Easom.
Westella Hanson carried on their league form at Southwell City, putting out the home side 3-2 as Stef Whitley and Stewart Gill got one each for the hosts.
There was no shock as Clay Cross Town saw off Welbeck Welfare 4-0, while Belper United left it late at Glapwell before Jordan McRobie and Aaron Pride scored in the last eight minutes to seal a 2-0 win.
A single goal by David Coe, meanwhile, was enough for Mickleover RBL to eliminate Blidworth Welfare.
Barrowby sprung a major surprise in the Black Dragon South Division, inflicting only the second defeat of the season on South Normanton Athletic by 3-0.
The Reserve Supreme Division is looking more and more like a two horse race. Leaders Rainworth went to bottom-of-the-table Radford and left with three points and a 7-1 win.

Teversal’s Simon Groves added two more to his total with Ryan Baldwin also scoring to give them a 3-0 success over Long Eaton United.
