Against Todmorden Borough Rob Wilson opened the scoring on 10 minutes but Borough equalised with a free kick.
Mike Rushton restored the lead and Maison McGeechan made it 3-1. McGeechan hit his second before Aaron Helliwell completed the scoring at 5-1.
On Monday McGeechan bagged his third in two games before an own goal and a Robert Wilson penalty earned a 3-1 win.
Kendal County also took six points from six with wins against Whinney Hill and Todmorden Borough. Joe Baker headed County in front and Jason Jones added a second against Whinney Hill, with Kev Pickering sealing the win.
On the road at Todmorden on Monday, County’s goals came from Steve Robinson, Sam Cooper and Pickering.
