A sole strike from Troy Tucker kept First Division leaders Wolves’ title hopes firmly on track at Wellington Oval on Sunday.
The home side edged lowly St David’s Warriors 1-0 with Tucker grabbing the winner in the 30th minute of a cagey affair.
Elsewhere, BAA recorded a 2-0 win over Young Men’s Social Club at Goose Gosling Field to remain hot on the heels of the leaders, who they trail only on goal difference.
Miguel Falcao opened the scoring in the 39th minute before Toby Gibbons added a second in the 56th minute to make the points safe.
Shield champions Paget Lions continued their superb run of form after thrashing landlords Southampton Rangers 6-2 at Southampton Oval on Saturday.

Russell restored Paget’s lead with his second of the game in the 43rd minute before Rakeem Deshields made it 4-2 when he converted in the 59th minute.
Paget were celebrating again a minute later through Diaje Hart’s strike before Hypolite grabbed a second in the 69th minute to cap his team’s convincing display.
