Reigning champions hit eight
St George’s closed the gap at the Canada Life Premier League summit on Saturday.
They thrashed lowly Colby 8-2.
The southerners took a shock early lead through Marty Moore but that was as good as it got for the visitors.
Joey Morling scored twice to restore order and the home side soon took control.
Jack McVey added a third and a second half hat-trick from Chris Bass, plus goals from substitute Johnny Myers and Sean Quaye, meant Adam Fretwell’s late reply was a consolation.
A Josh Kelly double and goals from Aaron Hawley and Jack Saxon fired fourth placed Rushen to a 4-1 home win over spirited Douglas Royal, who replied through Jacob Crook.
