Scott Mackay and Adam Tempest were the two strikers in form as Leake took maximum points.

However, Mackay could have gone one better had he not missed a first-half penalty as well.

Daniel Busch bagged a hat-trick to help fire Benington to a 4-2 away success at Wyberton Reserves.

Busch and Tim Bell were both on target inside the opening 15 minutes as Benington took an early control of the contest.

Benington regained the initiative after the break with Busch bagging a second-half brace to complete his treble before Wyberton reduced the arrears late on.

Nicky Syndercombe and Johnny Butler grabbed the Wyberton goals.

Fishtoft made a winning start to 2015 with an impressive performance away from home at Skegness Town Reserves.

The visitors started brightly but it took half an hour for the game to open up with Liam Ogden scoring direct from a free-kick after Lee Orrey had been fouled on the edge of the box.

Skegness levelled before a brace from Neil Allen and further strikes from Jamie Skinner, Orrey and John McGarel sealed a 6-2 victory.

Second-placed Spilsby Town found visitors Ruskington Rovers a tough nut to crack, being forced to come from behind to draw 1-1.

Billinghay Athletic and Pointon also shared the points following a 1-1 draw.

In the Taylors Peugeot Division One, the battle of the top two saw leaders Swineshead Reserves leave Heckington Millers with a 2-2 draw.
