Rushen beat the Whites to go top

Rushen United went top of the Canada Life Premier League last night, and dealt their opponents' title chances a huge blow in the process.

They beat Corinthians 4-1 at Ballafletcher, thanks to goals from Stephen Riding (two), Mike Williams and Josh Kelly.

The result has seen Corinthians drop from first to third.

Defending champions St George’s are now second on goal difference and within two points of the summit, after an 8-1 home win over Douglas Royal.

They've also played four games fewer than Rushen, and two fewer than Corinthians.

In last night's other top flight matches, Douglas Athletic beat Laxey 5-3, Ramsey held St John's to a goalless draw and Old Boys thrashed Colby 5-0.

In JCK Division Two, Foxdale produced the performance of the night as they demolished bottom side Governor's Athletic 18-0.

Jay Chatwood gave his silver boot chances a huge boost as well, netting nine of those goals.

And Union Mills scored twice in the last seven minutes to salvage a 4-4 draw against Douglas and District.
