Mellor Firsts chalked up a seventh consecutive Premiership win beating Chorltonians away 3-1.
The win exacted revenge for a 1-2 reverse in the home fixture in August when a Chorlts player kicked in a dressing room door.
This time Dave Whelan, Chris Coram and Matt Jamieson kicked down Chorlts defence to score. The home side's only reply was a Ben Beer own goal which levelled the score at 1-1. Jack Parr was Mellor's Man of the Match. The win puts Mellor second in the Division, six points behind Spurley Hey but with two games in hand. Next up Hazel Grove at home.
Mellor Seconds found themselves 0-4 down after 25 minutes away at Castleton Firsts but rallied to end the match losing 6-5.
Andy Kuehl, Matt McNulty(2), Ryan Yates and Luke Jubb were the scorers. James Humphries was Mellor's star man, closely followed by Matt McNulty.

The home side were dominating and Mellor struggled to create chances.
On 32 minutes Oldham hit a post.
But the longer Mellor dug in the more frustrated the home side became and on 38 minutes a mix up in the Oldham defence led to a defender putting through his own goal.
The makeshift centre back pairing of Man of the Match Mike White and Paul Telfer began to steady the ship. They won most things in the air and covered each other well. Rick Monton and Sam Jamieson in general bottled up the flanks.
Matt Mills replaced Shane Cliffe at left midfield on 55 minutes. Five minutes later Nathan Fitzpatrick fired two yards wide from long distance.
The game was opening up now and Mellor were earning more possession in the final third, if still not creating good chances.
On 70 minutes James Robinshaw replaced Andy Given.
On 75 minutes a poor header in midfield led to Oldham shipping the ball forward early and an attacker got a yard of space to fire past Phil Brown for 1-1.
Oldham might have gone ahead but for another good save from Brown, turning away a long range shot.
The turning point of the match came on 79 minutes when Maciek Sobiegraj got away and toed the ball past the on-rushing keeper who brought him down.

Thomas Reeve then replaced Nathan Fitzpatrick.
A minute later Sobiegraj scored again, shooting high into the left hand corner from the right.
Jordan Cassidy then replaced Sean Standen
As the rain fell, Oldham were chasing the game and their defence was stretched.
Sobiegraj got away again and his shot was saved but spun away for Robinshaw to head goalwards from five yards. A defender on the line tried to palm the ball away but only succeeded in deflecting it into his own goal for 4-1. But the goal was Robinshaw's.
THE RACE NIGHT PLANNED FOR THIS SATURDAY IS CANCELLED
Mellor Firsts climbed to fourth in the Premiership after a 3-2 home win against Hooley Bridge. Mellor dominated the first half in which the visitors had a man sent off and led 3-0 at the break.
Hooley Bridge also had to change their keeper in the second period but rallied well to bring the game back to 3-2 and only a last minute save by Cody Wharton prevented the loss of two points. Dave Whelan scored twice for Mellor and Matt Jamieson scored the other.
The Seconds, bottom of Division 2, travelled to Hollingworth Old Boys who now top the table. But the home side were in for a surprise as Mellor had the better of the early exchanges.
In the first minute Tom Bright slipped in Ian Arnfield whose shot was saved with difficulty.
Two minutes later Matt McNulty went on a 50 yard run up the middle of the pitch and curled an excellent shot from 22 yards which missed the top corner by two feet.
On four minutes Marcus McNulty sent a free kick just over the bar.
Hollingworth then forced two corners which Scott Cassidy dealt with at the near post.
But on 22 minutes Hollingworth went ahead when a long diagonal ball found a forward who volleyed home off the crossbar.
The goal seemed to affect Mellor's confidence. Some good defensive play was undone by poor passing from the back.
Mellor then conceded a free kick in a dangerous spot but the wall did its job.
On 30 minutes Ian Arnfield could not rise high enough to direct a telling cross towards goal.
Five minutes later a mistake at the back put a Hollingworth forward in but Tom Fletcher pulled off a great save.
The game seemed to turn on its head in a bizarre two minutes after the break. On 46 minutes the Hollingworth goalkeeper sliced a clearance into his own goal.
And a minute later a crass back pass sent Tom Bright away and he coolly slotted home to give Mellor an unlikely 2-1 lead

On 65 minutes another poor ball out of defence was intercepted. Hollingworth switched the play to the ring winger and the ensuing cross was headed in at the far post.
Tim Parker clears
On 75 minutes Rob Jordan made a good run down the left and his dangerous cross was cleared after causing some consternation.
James Humphries then replaced Andy Kuehl. The switch pushed more Mellor men forward and for a while the home side looked edgy.
On 79 minutes Tom Fletcher made another great save but seven minutes later Hollingworth put the game to bed with a whipped free kick from 23 yards which went over the wall and found the far corner.
Matt McNulty might have pulled one back three minutes into injury time but missed the target when well placed eight yards out.
