Football: Hawk continue to fly high in Premier Division
JUST four league matches survived the wet weekend weather, two in each division.
In the Premier Division, Hawk continue to lead the way following their 4-1 win at second-bottom Castle Mona.
However, Hawk have played five more games than the two teams below them, Dresden United and Locomotive, and incredibly head the table with a -5 goal difference.
Greg Thorley (2), Alex Grecian and Steve Moon were on target for the Hawk, with Chris Jones scoring for Castle Mona.

Dresden remain second, just a point behind Hawk but with five games in hand, after their 6-3 home victory over Black Lion at Bucknall Park.
Richard Parkes lead the way for Dresden with a hat-trick, while there were singles for Ashley Cooper, Roy Smith and Rob Talbot.
Dave Ashley, Matty Barlow and Dan Meek were the scorers for Black Lion, who remain sixth.
The only movers in Division Two were Longton Area, who moved from fifth bottom to a mid-table position following their 2-1 win at bottom club Millstone Inn.
Lee Parrot (Longton) and Scott Porter (Millstone) had the game tied at the break, but Luke Beard struck with a second-half effort to win it for Longton.
Johnson Autos remain fourth and Wheatsheaf fifth after they drew 3-3.
Peter Weatherall (2) and player-manager Dave Deaville netted for Autos, with Craig Bloor (2) and Barry Evans on target for Wheatsheaf.
IN the LEEK AND DISTRICT SUNDAY LEAGUE, Premier Division side AFC Blue Mugge booked their place in the semi-final of the JW Howson Cup, but only after being taken all the way to a penalty shoot-out by Division One side Valiant Troggs.
It was Troggs who took an early lead when Mitch Cartlidge scored after two minutes, but Greg Johnson netted an equaliser and then gave Mugge a 2-1 lead.
Troggs hit back and took the tie into extra-time with a goal from Josh Johnson.
With the scores still level, the match went to penalties and it was Mugge who triumphed 4-2.
In the Premier Division, Knypersley found their shooting boots to fire 10 past Athletico Rag and open up a six-point lead at the top.
Liam Hancock grabbed a hat-trick, there were doubles from Sean Boote and Sean Mountford and singles from Chris Nowak, James Spencer and Darren Butler.
Goals from Danny Bourne, Andy Bloor and Jay Fletcher gave Longnor a 3-2 victory over ground-sharers Waterhouses.
In Division One, Rams Head beat Wellington United 7-1, with Lee Tawn netting a treble.
