Sun Inn 1 (Harland) Shakespeare 8 (Hawkes 4, Patterson, Scales, Jon Cairns, Williamson)
Four goals from Robbie Hawkes helped Shakespeare back into top spot in the second division.
The Boro forward smacked in the first three goals for a quickfire hat-trick, then Jamie Patterson added a fourth for the visitors.
Tom Williamson was the next man on target for Col Jenkinson’s side, with a bullet header from Mikey Harland at the back post pulling a goal back for the hosts.
Hawkes’ fourth goal made it 6-1 and Jon Cairns and Tom Scales banged in a goal each as the visitors ran riot.
Hawkes was the man of the match, one of his goals seeing him beat five Sun players before smacking in a 20-yard thunderbolt.
Josh Sands, Will Jenkinson and Jordan Aitkens shone for the winning team, while Liam Rowley was the Sun man of the match on his full debut.
West Pier Reserves 0 Itis Itis 3 (O’Neill, M Oldroyd, Wood)

The visitors opened the scoring after 10 minutes, a defensive clearance rebounding off Paul O’Neill and ricocheting into the net.

Ten minutes into the second half, Mark Oldroyd fired in a stunning goal, picking up the ball 30 hyards out and sending a looping volley over the Pier keeper.
Itis Itis secured the points five minutes from time when Gavin Wood’s clinical finish slid into the net.
In an all-round solid team effort Oldroyd and Elliot Spurr stood out in midfield.
Man of the match for the home side was 18-year-old centre-back Kyle Spivey.
