Dunston UTS inflicted the biggest shock of the weekend by winning 4-1 at Shildon in Northern League Division One.

Josh Hawkes put UTS ahead but player-manager Dan Moore responded for the Railwaymen just before the break.

Mark Fitzpatrick reinstated the surprise result for Dunston from the penalty spot before Dale Burrell and a second from Hawkes wrapped up a stunning performance.

North Shields missed the chance to close the gap to one point on third place following a 2-0 defeat at Team Northumbria.

Kevin Carr scored his second in four days after seven minutes.

Thirty minutes later, the Robins missed the opportunity to equalise as Gareth Bainbridge uncharacteristically missed a penalty.

Shields finished strongly to threaten a leveller but the hosts wrapped up a fine afternoon when Aidan Heywood scored in injury time.

Bishop Auckland beat Jarrow Roofing 4-1 at Heritage Park to pile the misery on fourth-bottom Jarrow Roofing.

Olly Martin, who scored a hat-trick in his previous outing, maintained his recent form in front of goal as Roofing took a fifth-minute lead.

Bishops replied in the 19th minute as Thomas McAloon tapped in.

After the break, the home side ran away with victory with Andre Bennett and twice Andrew Johnson finding the net.

In Northern League Division Two, Tow Law Town moved back into the top three with a 4-2 win at West Allotment Celtic.

West Allotment fought back before the break with Elliot Mitchell and Colin McKenzie on the scoresheet.

Scott Oldfield restored the visitors’ advantage on the hour mark.

Allotment remained in the game until the very end before Thexton added a Tow Law fourth.
