SUNDAY League leaders Bentley Motors cruised past base-ment boys Sydney Arms without needing top gear in their Crewe Regional League Premier Division clash.
Goals from Scarlett and Edwards ensured a comfortable 2-0 win for The Motormen.
Second-placed White Lion were in danger of losing to Wrenbury, after trailing 2-0 at half-time to goals from Peberdy and Phillips. But Lion roared back after the break and a Sumner double proved enough to earn a 2-2 draw.
Betley took advantage of Lion's lost points by jumping above them into second spot. They thrashed Frog and Ferret 6-1 with a Dean double and strikes from Ashworth, Leyton, Gilford and Muncey completing their tally, while Mark Chandler, in his first game after injury, hit Frog's consolation.
Faddiley also ran out 6-1 winners against Audlem Town. Danny Massey bagged a brace with an own goal and strikes from Darren Vickers, Martin Chesters and Liam O'Reilly completing their haul. Jay Batemen replied.
Wickstead and Ancient Briton shared the spoils in a 2-2 draw. Gidman and Varley netted for Wickstead with Caldwell scoring twice for Briton.
A Deane hat-trick helped Nantwich Young Farmers beat Willaston White Star 3-1, Hilditch on target for Star.
With several teams involved in the Crewe FA Vase, only four games took place in Division One.
A Barlow brace and a Sutton single secured a 3-0 win over Railway Hotel for Clay Lane, who moved second as a result, while a Nick Harvey hat-trick helped Belle Vue keep up the pressure on the top teams with a narrow 3-2 win against Hop Pole. Michael Mutch plundered Pole's replies.
Crewe Corinthians enjoyed a much-needed 4-2 win against The Vine. Richard Gillett hit two for Corinthians, whose other goals came courtesy of Steve Jones and Andy Loskin, while brothers Peter and Paul Ashley netted for Vine.
Salvador seemed set for victory against Fox Elworth after a Toby Barnes brace and an Alan Hynes effort gave them a 3-0 half-time lead, but Fox fired back after the break to earn a 3-3 draw with Steve Bushill scoring twice and Rich Butler once.
