Reed Rangers went back to the top of the Premier Division summit after a 5-0 win over Headstone Lions.
After suffering a 14-2 defeat to Tudor Arms in the Challenge Cup semi-final seven days before, facing another of the league’s 'big hitters' in Reed was probably what Headstone didn’t want. But they gave a brave performance, restricting Rangers to only one goal in the first half.
However, they tired in the second half, conceding four more times to Reed who now have a two-point lead over both Headstone Athletic and Tudor in what now looks to be a three-horse race for the title.
The Reed goals came via a hat-trick from Dominic David and singles from Lucas Gibbons and Sean Tipper.
Meriden Ballers suffered a 3-2 home defeat to FC Revolution.
Graham Melsome put Meriden ahead early on before Adam Rawlings scored twice before the break to put Revolution in front.
Melsome scored his second of the game ten minutes into the second half, but Rawlings completed his hat-trick for Revolution soon after.
Meriden where given a golden chance to level the scores in the final minute when they where awarded a penalty but Anthony Williams was denied by a fine save from the Revolution keeper.
Colne Valley Reserves gained only their second league win of the campaign after a 2-1 victory over Cassiobury Revolution.
Cassiobury went ahead five minutes before half-time thanks to Jack Wheeler, but right on the half-time whistle Valley equalised through a deflected effort from Lewis Cole.
The visitors' winner came with just five minutes remaining thanks to a fine solo goal from Perry Rogers.
Brookside have drawn level at the top of the table with Hertfordshire Lions after a 5-2 over Watford Labour Club.
The victors enjoyed a 2-0 lead at the half-way point thanks to a brace from Marc Horn.
An own goal from Barrie Horn gave Labour hope early in the second half but Brookside responded with Marc Horn completing his hat-trick and a double from Jordan Cocomazzi. Lee Adams pulled a goal back late on for Watford.
