Paul Roscoe scored two whilst Mark Finn and Mike Howarth scored one each for Ainsworth.
Noel Shine and Steve Noon gave leaders Radcliffe Old Boys B a two-goal interval lead over Bolton Wyresdale, and Richard Mason wrapped up the points with a second-half strike to stay two points clear of Dobbies.
Dobbies had a good away win against Failsworth Home Guard for whom Ellis Garry scored, but Chris Williams, Gary Davenport and a Peter Forgoine double secured three points in a 4-1 win for Dobbies.
