THERE were some high scoring games as teams battled it out in the Baines Bagguley Penhale North Lancashire and District Football League.

Starting at the top of the Premier Division, Galgate beat tenth placed Storeys 5-1 at home.

It proved to be a dream day for Steve McMinn who netted four against the hapless Storeys defence.

Galgate now find themselves top by two points but the other teams around them have two games in hand so it is all to play for in the top flight.

Elsewhere, Highgrove beat Ingleton 3-2 thanks to a late strike from Liam Breslin, his second of the game.

There was a shock at Moor Lane where thirteenth placed Trimpell and Bare Rangers managed to beat the hosts 2-0 taking their points tally for the whole season to a measly 10.

That win takes Lancaster into third and just seven points off league leaders Mayfield - both sides will be eyeing promotion at this stage of the season.

Elsewhere, twelfth placed Millhead upset the apple cart at tenth placed Bolton-le-Sands.

With both teams struggling near the foot of the table it was David Copperthwaite who was the hero as he bagged himself a brace to secure his side's 3-2 win.
