Only one game beat the downpours of last weekend, and it was a big one in Division Three.
Unbeaten Chester Garden Farm maintained their record with a close-fought 1-1 draw at home to Durham County.
Tom Wray netted for Garden Farm, with Stanley Ogunsuyi on target for the visitors, whose star man was Andrew Bartle. Adam Goodyear stood out for the home side.
The point took second-placed County closer to leaders Houghton, who, with 27 points from 13 games, are two points clear but have played four matches more.
Garden Farm, with five wins and three draws in their eight games so far, remain seventh but have games in hand on all but one of the clubs above them.
