EARLY season bragging rights belong to Hexham as they edged past Northern Alliance Division One rivals Ponteland United.
As was the case in all three meetings between the teams last year, one goal was the difference as the Tyne Valley side claimed victory by two goals to one.
Divisional rivals Heddon showed more fight than in previous weeks, but still fell to defeat as they went down 5-3 to Bedlington Terriers Reserves.
Wallington's great start to life in the Premier Division continued to a 4-1 success over fellow promoted side Red House Farm, but Stocksfield lost 3-1 at home to Killingworth Station.
In Division Two, Chopwell were trailing 3-0 at home to Seaton Burn before the game was abandoned after 52 mins due to serious injury.
Ryton and Crawcrook Albion picked up their first point of the new campaign in their 2-2 draw at Stokesley Sports Club in the second division of the Northen League.
Meanwhile, Prudhoe Town were unable to make the most of having home advantage for the first time this season as they lost 2-1 to Cleator Moor Celtic.

THREE watercolour paintings donated by Queen Mary were auctioned off to raise money for a new Darby and Joan club in Hexham.
A site had already been bought, but a further £6,000 was needed to run the club for the elderly.
The auction, opened by Viscountess Allendale, saw the paintings raise over £8 for the fund.
