MARSH UNITED went top of the league on their own following a 3-0 win over First Huddersfield and Birkby Amore's 1-0 defeat by Craven.
Marsh were expected to beat bottom club First Huddersfield quite comfortably but the busmen were a resilient force even though United dominated the game.
United were denied early on by a fine save from Luke Catling from a close-range effort from Michael Boyes, who saw his shot tipped round a post.
The deadlock was broken, however, when a long through ball from David Land was flicked on by Gary Lumb to Craig Taylor, who was left with the simple task of tapping in from six yards.
Only other chances fell to Marsh in the first half - Grant Slater missing an open goal and Land, who later required stitches in his right foot after kicking the underside of a First player's boot, blasting wide.
First created two opportunities in the half, one being stopped by an impressive save from Chris Riley, the other being a penalty appeal turned down by the referee.
With the wind now behind them Marsh pressed on and their second came, again from Taylor, following a free kick from Lumb.
First's last chance came after 75 minutes when Adam Laverick headed over from five yards out.
United finished on the up with Lee Smith netting a third from a Lumb corner.
John Brennan scored the only goal of the game that brought Craven a 1-0 win over Amore at Dryclough recreation ground.
Brennan should have added another later in the second half but his shot was well saved by the Amore keeper.
Shane Kelly was the man-of-the-match for his performance at the heart of the Craven defence.
Referee Ian Armitage also had a fine game.
Field Head joined Amore and Park in joint second place with a 3-2 win over Woodman.
It was 2-2 into the second half until Steven Thompson stepped in to grab the all-important winner.
Woodfield Park stayed among the leaders with a 5-1 win over Star HQ at Lockwood.
Matthew Kidger rattled in a hat trick with a header, a left-foot drive and a penalty, to be named man-of-the-match.
Richard Spink and Chris Worsley were the others on target for Park, while Jon Garthwaite replied for Star.
Pak Rangers returned to winning ways following their defeat a fortnight earlier by Birkby Amore, with a fine 5-2 win over HD One.
Zaman Ullah led the way with four goals and Aftab Ahmed got the other.
Stoney and Kelly replied for HD One.
Lowly Clothiers had only 10 men but managed a 3-3 draw against top half side Britannia Sports.
Kyle Edwards (2) and Dave Reed were the players on target for Clothiers.
Athletico Monkey had a hard-earned 2-1 win over Waterloo BC with goals from Roberts and Siddiq cancelling out Dunstan's effort for Waterloo.
