VICTORY over Red House Farm at the weekend saw Stocksfield move up two places and out of the Northern Alliance Premier Division drop zone.
Having narrowly lost to the same opponents the previous week, the Griffins got their own back with the 2-1 victory seeing them to 13th spot.
A battling performance by Wallington means they occupy a top six spot, overcoming a strong challenge of Seaton Delaval Amateurs to win 4-2.
Division One strugglers Heddon came close to causing a shock when up against leading Cramlington Town but fell just short as they went down 3-2.
It was plain sailing for both Ponteland United and Hexham in the Northumberland FA Minor Cup, Ponteland 9-0 victors over Fawdon Park Sports Development and Hexham 6-3 winners over Embleton Whinstone Rovers.
Ponteland United Reserves lost 3-1 to Willington Quay Saints while Heddon St Andrews lost 7-3 to Newcastle Chemfica (Independent).
Prudhoe Town needed extra time to progress in the Shipowners Cup, a 1-0 victory over Cleator Moor Celtic seeing them to round three.
Ryton and Crawcrook Albion, bottom of Division Two of the Northern League, battled hard to earn a 1-1 draw against table topping Heaton Stannington.

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.
