NEWLANDS and Eastfield too advantage of Edgehill’s defeat at Filey by collecting wins and closing the gap at the top of the table.
Eastfield came from behind at Scalby to win 3-1.
Adam Sample’s effort rocketted in off the underside of the bar as Scalby led for around 25 minutes in a tight first half.
But Eastfield levelled through a Nick Heggarty strike to send the sides in level at the break.
Eastfield’s Danny Glendinning made it 2-1 with a neat chip, but Scalby thought they had levelled when the ball appeared to cross the line after a scramble in the area but referee Paul Moss ruled the goal out.
And the game was settled when Glendinning finished neatly to make it 3-1.

Nelson were nearly caught out by another superb comeback as their commanding 7-1 lead manifested into an 8-5 victory over Edgehill Reserves.
Nelson were 5-1 up at the break and then extended their lead to 7-1, their goals coming courtesy of a Luke Delve treble, two from Rob Speight and Sam Garnett and a Kurt Williamson strike.
But the pace of Edgehill front man Tom Scales started to cause problems to a tired Nelson back line and Martin Cappleman’s men almost clawed their way back into the game, but the damage had already been done and Kev Creelman’s men secured the three points.
Nelson moved away from the bottom two following their first win of the season at the fourth time of asking following promotion from the third division last season.
Creelman picked out keeper Steve Malone as the man of the match after a string of superb saves.
Jamie Cornish’s strike wasn’t enough for Jay Taylor’s Filey Town Reserves to come away with any points from their trip to Matty Dawson’s tabl-topping Seamer side.

FALSGRAVE FC continued their rampant start to the season with a massive 18-0 crushing of Seamer Reserves - as six players incredibly netted hat-tricks for Billy-Jo Johnson’s men.
Paul Brady, Nick Ellis, Mikey Anderson, Clayton Walker, Richard Tolliday and Kieran Link smashed in three goals apiece as Falsgrave ran riot.
The pick of the goals were Walker’s one-touch finish following a neat team move, and Anderson’s left-foot volley.
Their win takes Falsgrave on to five wins from five matches and 15 points.
Johnson said: “We were superb. I don’t know if it is a record but I doubt many teams have ever had six hat-tricks in one game.”
FC Soba bounced back from their first defeat at the hands of Falsgrave last week with a 4-1 victory against fellow promotion candidates Snainton.
The game was level at 0-0 at the interval but Craig Rackham netted from the penalty spot after Liam Vasey hit the deck in the area.
Snainton levelled almost immediately though as a poorly weighted back-pass from Georgie Rose was intercepted and Snainton netted.
But Rose atoned for his error by finding the net to put Soba 2-1 up.
Rackham made it 3-1 after Vasey threaded him through before Rose also grabbed a goal to complete their win and keep up the pressure on Falsgrave at the summit of the league table.
