New Hartley Juniors secured a superb 3-0 win at Spennymoor on Saturday.
The visitoes started brightly with Jack Cooper and Ryan McKie going close early on.
The home side’s resilience lasted until midway through the first half before McKie broke the deadlock with a lovely finish for his 26th goal of the season.
Hartley carried on attacking and centre back David Hughes double the advantage on 35 minutes.
The second half followed the same pattern, and Paddy Gibbons went close a couple of times before debutant Regan Paterson completed the scoring five minutes from time with New Hartley’s third.
