Wigginton Grasshoppers go top of York Minster Engineering Football League
Josh Luckhurst fired the home side into the lead after nine minutes, and Tom Metcalfe added a second just after the half-hour.
Jamie Willstrop then put Luckhurst through for his second before Liam Stilgoe brought Dringhouses back on the stroke of half-time.
In the second period, Neil Ducey reduced the deficit to one goal, only to see Matthew Tiplady hit Grasshoppers’ fourth soon after.
Ducey struck again in the 69th minute but it was to be Luckhurst’s day, the striker completing a hat-trick.
Copmanthorpe lost 3-2 at Terrington Glory.
Danny Leach put Cop ahead early on but Alex Yates and Tom Paley edged the home side into a slender lead by half-time. Yates completed his brace after the restart to give Terrington a 3-1 advantage, which proved insurmountable, despite Olly Bird’s late strike.
Tom Matthews and Robert Chipps helped themselves to hat-tricks as Dunnington bounced back to form with a 6-1 thumping of St Clement’s.
The visitors were 4-0 up before Liam King replied, but the Saints had no answer to the resurgent champions.
Gary Raper also joined the day’s top-tier hat-trick club as Easingwold claimed a second consecutive victory with a 3-1 triumph over York St John. Liam Waterworth replied.
Lee Powell and Danny Cates granted RI a 2-1 lead by the interval, before Carl Shepherd extended the margin between the sides. The final word was left to Powell, who scored two more to give the visitors a 5-1 success.
Church Fenton White Horse opened their division one campaign in style with a 7-0 demolition of Selby RSSC. Mason and Alistair Cope notched a couple of goals apiece, with David Marshall, James Langrick and Leecher completing the tally.
Hamilton Panthers, who were relegated from the premier league last season, fell behind early on to a goal from Brooklyn’s Chris Seager, and failed to recover. Despite chances at both ends, only Brooklyn's Dave Thompson could add to the scoreline as the home side ran out 2-0 winners.
The away side had led 2-0 at the interval but saw their lead eroded by a James Drewery penalty and Charles Marriot’s equaliser. Malton battled back and Daffern settled the tie with just ten minutes to go.
