Winners Patricks' seventh heaven; FELLOWSHIP LG PREMIER DIVISION.
CONSETT Saint Patrick's boosted their title hopes - and sent Saint John's Snod's Edge nearer the dreaded drop - with an emphatic 7-0 victory.
Daniel Forrden opened the scoring for Consett, followed by Gary Charlton before half-time.
Charlton completed his hat-trick as Peter Price, Jack Malone and Rob Lavery added to the tally.
St Patrick's followed up that success by going down 5-1 to Stockton Churches Portrack in the quarter-finals of the Andy Walker Trophy.
Lee Twizell put Stockton in front after twenty minutes and Marc Dawson increased their asdvantage on the half-hour. On the hour Aidan Bailey pulled Saint Patricks back in the match.
However, three counters in the space on six minutes - Twizell and Dawson with their second strieks before a foul on Twizell in the box allowed Ben Lynch to score from the penalty spot.
With Consett playing in the Trophy, it gave Newcastle Christian Life Centre United an opportunity to consolidate second spot.
Things started badly as in the 11th minute Gavin Wray scored from a corner for Saint Charles RC Church Gosforth.
In the 55th minute United won a penalty after a foul in the box and captain Charlie Sullivan steped up to slot home.
That turned out to be the turning point as Amin Kashy nabbed a double, Jaddie Kambeya rounding off the scoring as United prevailed 4-1. Two teams fighting against relegation met at Saint John's Snod's Edge as second-bottom North Shields Community Christians visited.
Saint John's triumphed 6-4 to jump above their opponents.
South Family Bank Family Church's Dan Oram and Steve Sykes twice put them in front against Jesmond Parish Church - only for Mark Ridyard and captain Nick Rowling to earn the Tynesiders a 2-2 draw.
