Leverington chalked up a 14-3 win over Oundle Town in Division Three with Declan Foster and Ryan Benton both helping themselves to five goals, while Malborne beat Spalding Orange 12-0 in Division Four with Lewis Driscoll netting four times and Luke Rymill three.
Holbeach were 12-0 winners over Wisbech St Mary in Under 13 Division Two, and in Division Three Spalding Blue beat Rippingale & Folkingham 10-2.
Stars of the show for Spalding were two of the substitutes. Pedro Carneiro and Sam Booth both came off the bench to fire four goals apiece.
