Tweedmouth Harrow 8

Belford 1

Harrow maintained their position at the top, but must now wait on other results if they are to claim the title.

Goals from Nick Moor and Johnny Simpson gave them the lead at half time, with Dan Tully replying for Belford from the penalty spot. A strong second half display saw Harrow net six further goals as Moor and Simpson scored their second of the game, along with further goals from Martyn Tait (2), Kristian Neil and Jordan Richardson.

Highfields 3

Craster 4

A four goal blast from Richard Stanwix gave Craster the win on a heavy pitch at Berwick.

Ryan Wedderburn netted during the first half for Highfields, but two from Richard Stanwix gave Craster the advantage at half time. In the second half Connor Duffy and Owen Mensies scored for Highfields, but another two goals from Stanwix gave Craster the win.

Wooler 2

Springhill 2

These were two well-matched sides, with play flowing from end to end throughout the match.

Thomas Allan gave Wooler the lead, with Robert O’Neil equalising before half time. In the second half it was again close until an own goal after 80 minutes gave Wooler the lead, but the visitors salvaged a point thanks to an 85th minute equaliser from Craig Dixon.
