Holditch hit goal trail to pile misery on Millstone
HOLDITCH are the new leaders of Division One after putting 13 goals past bottom club Millstone Inn.
With previous leaders The Barrel not in action, Holditch took full advantage to open up a two-point lead after making it seven straight league wins so far this season.
Millstone, on the other hand, are still trying to grind out their first point of the season having lost all nine games, but are still only four points adrift of safety.
Simon Fowler and Chris Mountford led the way for Holditch with hat-tricks, while Simon Freeman and Levi Bradbury bagged braces. There were also goals from Harry Williams, Danny Moss and Rob Lawton.

The only other match played in the division saw Bentilee move up three places to third following a 2-0 win at Stella Bucharest, who remain fourth-from-bottom.
Jonathan Baker gave Bentilee a half-time lead, with Nathan Campbell wrapping up the points in the second half.
One match was played in the Premier Division, which involved two teams fighting for survival.
Fourth-bottom Congress travelled to Trent Vale to take on second-bottom Castle Mona and returned with a point from a 1-1 draw.
The match was goalless at half-time, but Mark Pearce netted in the second half for Castle Mona, while Adam Gilmore found the net for Congress.
Locomotive made it through to the second round of the Premier Division Cup with a 4-2 win at second-placed Hawk.
The Heron Cross-based pub side, three places below Hawk in the table, took a two-goal lead at half-time through Glen Ray and Kev Davies.
And although Hawk fought back to score twice through Chris Clarke and Simon Gold, Locomotive got up a fresh head of steam to win the tie with a strike from Lee Middleton and an own goal.
Out of four Staffs FA Sunday Trophy matches, only Longton Area and Leek and District Sunday League side Waterhouses saw any action.
And it was the Traders League side Longton who took advantage of a couple of mistakes in the Waterhouses defence to take a 2-0 lead through Tom Mellor.
However, the visitors from the Moorlands fought back and reduced the arrears through Brian Mycock in the 37th minute.
In the second half, Waterhouses continued to give as good as they got and eventually equalised through Paul Jacklin.
However, Longton Area had the last say when they hit Waterhouses on the break and scored the winner five minutes from time through Simon Worthington.
