PRUDHOE Town claimed bragging rights when their rivalry between the Youth Club recommenced.
Meeting in Division One of the Hexham and District Sunday League, Town secured a 4-0 victory over neighbours The Falcon Prudhoe.
Leaders Stocksfield's 100 per cent record remains intact as they came away from Barrasford with a 5-3 success, while Haltwhistle Conservatives put three without reply past Ryton and Crawcrook Albion.
Allendale earned bragging rights over rivals Rose and Crown Bellingham after a 5-1 success, while Wylam returned from Hexham Phoenix with a 4-0 victory.
Prudhoe Social Club's electric start in Division Two continued with an 11-0 stuffing of struggling Swinburne Arms Stamfordham.
They will be buoyed by the news that Bardon Mill were held to a 1-1 draw by an ever improving Warden Boatside, and that Dr Syntax Prudhoe scraped past Acomb Welfare 1-0.
In a close encounter, Hexham Hearts edged Phoenix Chopwell by the odd goal in five.

This week in... 1949Friday, December 9, 1949...
A workman was buried alive while digging a drain in the Prudhoe Urban Council's housing estate at Oaklands.
Workmates rushed to the aid of 50-year-old Richard Barclay, of Stocksfield, when the wall of the trench he was digging collapsed.
They managed to dig his head and shoulders free before finally pulling him from the earth. He was found to be suffering from shock and bruising.
