THE League was hit with the resignation of Athletico Monkey, not long after the Lindley WMCs withdrawal.
One key reason for their dropping out is understood to be a struggle to get a side together on a Sunday morning.
Despite two clubs departing, the divisions have only a slight new look – due to it being early in the season.
In the only Division I fixture, Sporting Club Shepley beat Pak Rangers 4-2 to go joint top (Britannia Sports were inactive).
Shepley dominated the early stages, taking a deserved 3-0 lead into half time thanks to goals from Damian Sykes, Daniel Steel and Jason Thorpe.
Pak improved in the second half, scoring through Kunle Odutola.
However, after Pak had an attempt cleared off the line, Shepley scored their fourth goal through Scott Fulton, after being fed by impressive Danny Ingham, to end any hopes of a Pak comeback.
Damien Murray added a consolation goal for Pak from a free-kick.
In Division II, Barr Street kept the pressure on Barge Albion at the top after a 3-0 victory over Wellington.
Barr Street remain in second place, although they would have gone top had it not been for the resignations, having recently beaten Lindley, only for that win to be wiped out.
Anthony Furey (2) and Kyle Walters were on target for Barr Street.
In an inter-divisional game, Woodfield Park comfortably beat Huddersfield Irish Centre 4-1 thanks to goals from Karl Ross (2), Danny Knutton and Dave Poole. Alex Kalanowski replied.
In the Halifax Cup, Barge Albion progressed to the quarter finals after a thrilling 4-3 victory over Engineers.
Debutant Ernest Baofo and Cartledge put Barge 2-0 up. However, slack defending allowed Engineers to score two quick goals before Baofo managed to get things back on track for Barge after capitalising on a speculative long ball.
A defensive error allowed Engineers to equalise again before Baofo finally scored the decisive goal to secure his hat trick.
In the District FA Challenge Cup, Waterloo BC overturned a 2-1 half time deficit to beat fellow Division I side Helion 4-2.
Two goals from Michael Hall had put Helion in control, Tom Mitchell netting for Waterloo.
However second-half goals from Ryan Buckley, Steve Campbell and Luke Hill were enough to see Waterloo through.
Field Head beat Meltham 2-1 thanks to a first-half double from Ian Brown.
Nick Spur ensured a close finish as he netted for Meltham with 15 minutes to go, but Field Head hung on.
Struggling Division I side FC Varsity comfortably beat Woolpack 6-1.
Chris Redmile hit a hat trick as Varsity overwhelmed their lower-league opposition. Phil Coombs added two penalties and Matthew Hanley also got on the scoresheet. Malcolm Gill scored for Woolpack.
