St George’s moved eight points clear at the top of the Sure Mobile Premier League with a goal glut at Douglas Royal on Saturday.
Hit-man Callum Morrissey was the star of the show again, the prolific marksman hitting four in an 8-3 victory.
Chris Bass junior, skipper Sean Quaye, Martin Torr and Mark Teare grabbed the others against a spirited Royal.
Ayre United all but ended Rushen’s Railway Cup qualification bid – Island international Johnny Cowley’s first half goal all that separated the sides at Andreas.
And Union Mills’ chances are also very slim after St Mary’s staged an impressive second half fightback to win 4-3 at Garey Mooar.
The Millers, one of the sides of the season so far, led 3-1 at the break, thanks to goals from Danny McMahon, Dean France and Carl Dobbin.
But the Saints continued their recent resurgence with goals from Steven Priestnal (two), Liam Cowin and Kevin Cain, his first for this new club, to seal the points.
Gymns were 4-1 home winners over St John's, who remain rooted at the foot of the table.
Mark Connor was the main man with a hat-trick with player-manager Ciaran McNulty netting the other.
Liam Harrison scored the St John’s consolation.
