A 4-1 hammering of neighbours Castrol on Friday night kept Vauxhall Motors Reserves among the early season pace-setters in Division One.
Despite an opening day defeat against Cammel Laird Reserves, the Motormen returned to winning ways with a 5-2 demolition of West Kirby in midweek, before goals from Timmy Ojapah, James Thomas, Joe Hewson and Martin Agalmanye saw off Castrol.
The result leaves Vauxhall in fifth place, just one point behind leaders New Brighton.
Ellesmere Port are showing signs of improvement after enduring a battle against relegation last season.
Narrow defeats in difficult games against Merseyside Police and Christleton came either side of an encouraging 2-1 victory over Mallaby - providing boss Kevin Mulville with reasons for optimism.
The same cannot be said for Castrol, who have suffered three successive defeats in their matches against Heswall, New Brighton and Vauxhalls, leaving them pointless in 15th place.
In Division Two, Capenhurst Villa look set to build on last season's third place finish with two wins and a draw from their opening fixtures.
Two goals from John O'Keefe secured a 2-2 draw at Ashville Reserves on Saturday, leaving Villa in second spot behind Upton AA.
Newly promoted Willaston have made a flying start to life in the second tier of the league and registered their second win in as many days on Monday night with a fine 2-0 win against Bla-con Youth Club. The triumph followed Saturday's entertaining 4-3 victory over Helsby.
In Division Three, Capenhurst Villa Reserves were put to the sword at AFC Bebington Athletic on Monday night. A 3-0 defeat ended their unbeaten start to the season after a 1-1 draw with Bronze Social at the weekend.
Ellesmere Port suffered a similar fate in their Monday night match at home to MBNA, going down to a narrow 1-0 defeat.
Grange Athletic suffered a 4-1 home reversal at the hands of St Werburgh's, condemning them to their third defeat of the season after Saturday's 3-1 hammering at MBNA.
