Corinthians moved a step closer to clinching the Canada Life Premier League title with a ruthless victory over DHSOB on Saturday afternoon.

The Whites were simply irresistible as they put Old Boys to the sword at Ballafletcher, romping their way to a 10-0 win.

Star of the show was birthday boy Stephen Whitley who helped himself to a four-goal haul and he was joined on the scoresheet by Sean Doyle (2), Dan Simpson (2), Luke Murray and Josh Ridings.

On a day when most games fell victim to the wet weather, only two other games went ahead in the Premier League.

On the adjacent pitch at Ballafletcher, Peel came from behind to get the better of Douglas Royal in a potential relegation battle.

Johnny Quirk gave the hosts an early lead but Scott Horne equalised for the westerners just after half-time before further goals from Robert Own and Charlie Higgins sealed all three points for the visitors.

At the Bowl, reigning champions proved too strong for Douglas Athletic as they eased to a 7-1 victory which cements their third-placed position in the table. No details of the scorers for either side were available at the time of going to press.

Unfortunately, the poor weather forced the postponement of all games in JCK Division Two, Canada Life Combination One and JCK Combination Two.
