......Division after they won 2-0 at Newcastle Benfield on Wednesday night.
Moors took the lead through Gavin Cogdon when he dribbled past the keeper and slotted the ball past two defenders on the line, and Micky Laws headed another in the second half.
Spennymoor manager Jason Ainsley said: "I'm very pleased, it was a solid rather than spectacular performance. Benfield is always a difficult place to go to and to keep another clean sheet is more than I could have asked for."
Newcastle Benfield manager Perry Briggs said: "In the first half, I thought we controlled Spennymoor quite well, and then we gave a sloppy goal away. In the second half it was men against boys."
Darlington 1883 are top of the table after beating Newton Aycliffe with a late header by David Dowson.
Newton Aycliffe manager Allan Oliver said: "I thought we had the better chances in the game, and missed three very good chances. There were some very good signs there for us, and over the rest of teh season I think we'll win more than we'll lose."
Bishop Auckland had a good 3-1 away win at Bedlington Terriers.
Bishops took the lead after 11 minutes when Kieran Megran opened up the Bedlington defence for Sonny Andrews to score, then Arran Wearmouth made it 2-0 from an Andrews corner.
Bedlington pulled a goal back with a Stuart Elliott penalty, but Jamie Harwood made it 3-1 with a header at the other end from an Andrews corner.
Bishop Auckland manager Colin Myers said: "That's two good wins in four days against Bedlington. I don't think they could have grumbled if we won 5-1. Our defence was the most solid it has been all season."
