Premier leaders Dawdon Welfare Park walloped Wrekenton Stormont Main 8-1, with Kyle Bell notching a hat-trick.
Rob Bird and sub Andrew Beer fired two goals apiece and another substitute, Marc Taylor, completed the scoring for the Green Drive outfit.
The big victory was a timely boost as Dawdon visit Liverpool side Campfield in the FA Sunday Cup second round this weekend.
Four goals from Michael Cain, a brace from David Taylor and an effort from Stephen Hockaday paved the way for Peterlee Helford United to enjoy an emphatic 7-1 win against Sunderland side Jolly Potters.
Horden CW Supporters Club convincingly defeated Shildon Supporters 6-1 at home, inspired by a superb hat-trick from Robert Taylor.
John Williams, Nathan Walters and sub Craig Harboard also struck to set up a trip to Darlington Haughton Grey Horse in round two.
