DIVISION Two leaders Ryton Michelangelo's were left reeling as they were thumped by Hexham Hearts.

A double from Nathan Kirk and singles from James Yeend, Ryan Morris and Nathan Drury secured a 5-1 victory for mid-table Hearts, who were best served by Duncan Scott.

For Ryton, Lewis March netted and Adam Bell was man of the match.

Doubles from Teo Birsan and Nathan Moore, and a strike from man of the match Corey McLauchlan, secured a 5-0 triumph for Wylam Black Bull over Ponteland Village.

Aaron Hawkins' header proved the difference for Rose and Crown Bellingham as they defeated Hexhamshire by the only goal. Matthew O'Donnell was named their star man with Josh Dodwell earning Shire's equivalent.

Second-placed Heddon St Andrew's were in Division Two KO Cup action and were indebted to a goal from Mark Richardson as they edged past Crawcrook Social Club. Dan Walker was man of the match, and David Mitchell starred for Crawcrook.

Owen White hit a hat-trick as Riding Mill defeated Ponteland United Stamfordham 7-0. Phil Edwards, Regan Robinson,  Josh MacLennan and man of the match Dale Dodds also registered.

In the Division One KO, a Lewis Loughhead goal was enough for Hexham Phoenix as they defeated Haltwhistle Railway 1-0. Luke Parkinson was named man of the match, with Dion Parker impressing for Haltwhistle.

Bryan Gilmour scored twice and star man Stefan Rainbow, Kosta Psarianos, Scott Fothergill and Graeme Hudspith once apiece as Mickley Social Club put six without reply past Haydon Bridge Anchor, who had Paul Wilson impressing.

Two goals from Reece Davies and one each from Ste Forster, Ben Bloomer and Sam Calkin saw Prudhoe Town, best served by Phil Murray, defeat Crawcrook Fox and Hounds 5-2. A double from Lee Peacock and a man of the match display from Owen Lee was in vain for Crawcrook.
