A round-up of the action from Watford's Olympian League
Herts Sunday Intermediate Cup Round Two
Reed Rangers enjoyed an impressive 5-1 victory over Watford Sunday League side Hammer Reserves to reach the third round.
Rangers took the lead after 11 minutes when Leon Burke set up Dominic David to score with a powerful drive.
Hammer equalised soon after but Reed regained the lead just after the half hour when George Hobson’s through ball set up Jamie Speer to score. The roles were then reversed two minutes later when Speer fed Hobson for the third goal.
Hobson was the provider again on the stroke of half-time when he set up David and the scoring was completed on the hour by Lucas Gibbons.
Evergreen Olympians are the other Olympian League side through to the third round after they edged out BP Mitchell 4-3 thanks to a brace apiece from Daniel Burk and Stuart Stratford.
Oxhey Rangers threw away a two-goal lead against Mon The Biff before losing 5-2.
James Hall and Dean Purdham put Rangers two ahead in the first half, but a goal for the home just before the interval changed the direction of the game and in the second half Oxhey fell apart, conceding four more times.
Bovingdon AFC lost 6-1 to Watford Sunday League side Mill End Sports with Chris Truman scoring the consolation.
Kings Langley lost 2-0 to Brookmans Park and Old Danes Athletic went down 4-3 at Cheshunt Town.
The much-anticipated clash between Headstone Athletic and Cassiobury Rangers, a replay of last season’s Olympian League Challenge Cup final was awarded to Headstone after their opponents, now in the Watford Sunday League, were unable to field a team.
Hertfordshire Lions made it five wins out of five after a 3-2 victory over Meriden Ballers.
Tom Weaver scored a double, supported by a single strike by Joe Tuberfield. Joe Dettmer and Matt Beets netted the Ballers goals.
Brookside are in second place, three points behind Lions, after they beat Watford Labour by the odd goal in seven.
Brookside took a two-goal lead in the first half through goals from Ashley Coleman and Rob Dodkin. Labour pulled one back from John Barker before two goals at the start of the second half from Paul Collett put them ahead. But Brookside, who are making comebacks a speciality this season, won the game thanks to two late efforts from Jack White and Jordan Cocomazzi.
Inter are up to third place after a 2-2 draw with Radlett Road.
They had to come back from two down thanks to goals from Dan Kenna and Chris Stead in the first half. Radlett had a player sent off after the break.
Cassiobury Revolution enjoyed another victory, this time 5-1 over Roundbush, who are still looking for their first league points of the season.
Joe Girvan scored the Bush consolation, with the Revolution goals coming from the in-form Darren O’Brien, who netted a hat-trick, Rob Dilkes and Paul Shelock.
An own goal and efforts from Jordan Dunn, James Brophy and Floyd Tate fired Woodlands United to a 4-2 victory over Dynamo Croxley 4-2.
James Graham and Ashley Dale-Jones were on target for Croxley.
WD Athletic and Colne Valley Reserves drew 1-1.
Pat Turner put WD ahead in the first half and that looked like being enough to seal the three points until Rob Barton equalised for Valley Reserves with the last kick of the game.
