Leaders Trinity kept up their perfect record with a 5-0 away win over Rozel Rovers, with Alex Carpenter scoring twice, aided and abetted by Scott Finnigan, Reuben Pestana and Alan Cooper.

Eight wins out of eight still only puts them three points clear of second-placed Wanderers, who thumped their nearest challengers, Grouville, 10-2 at Le Boulivot.

Daniel Tardivel led the way for the visitors, finding the net four times, while Charlie Payne added a brace and other singles came from Bradley Rimeur, Johnny Hickling, Kamen Nafkha and a Grouville defender.

Grouville, who hang on to third spot, replied through Tom O’Toole and Jack Jolley.

A hat-trick from Michael Spittal helped St Brelade to a 5-3 home win over St Clement.

James Hudson added two others for the westerners, while the eastern Saints scored through Kurtis Guthrie, Jack Taylor and Jake Hudson.

The other two games in the division also had goals aplenty.

St John scored four at home to St Ouen but still lost out by a single goal.

Both sides had hat-trick men, with the winners’ Paulo Freitas backed up with singles from Josh Vautier and George Machon, while Michael McGinley’s feat for St John was backed up by a single from Sebastian Hamon Cole.

Tighter still was the match between hosts St Peter and St Paul’s, each side having to settle for a point after sharing six goals.

Jamie Sewery scored twice and Scott Welsh once for St Peter, with the visitors’ treble coming from Jake Baker, Harrison Jukes and Clayton Romeril.

Two preliminary-round fixtures in the U14 Cory Cup brought one rather more one-sided result – a 17-1 win for St Paul’s B over Beeches and St Peter B scratching to St Clement B.

The scheduled U14 Division I match between St Paul’s A and St Brelade was not played.
