Northwood bounced back from their embarrassing 6-1 defeat to Hertford last week by beating high-flying Harlow Town 2-1 away from home in the Isthmian League South Central Division.

Woods took a deserved lead on 22 minutes when the ball came out to Eric Lopes on the edge of the area after a set-piece had been cleared. He curled a wonderful shot in at the far post from the corner of the box.

Only three minutes later, Northwood doubled their lead as Ethan Flanagan got his first goal for the club by powering a header past Josh Bexon.

Woods had some defending to do before the break but they managed to clear Samson Doherty free-kick and avoid any danger.

Harlow managed to pull one back at the start of the second half when Tayo Oyebola headed home after good work down the right, but that was all the Hawks could muster and Woods hung on for a vital three points.

Oxhey Jets missed the chance to go above Harpenden Town in the Spartan South Midlands Premier Division as they were beaten 3-1 by Town on Saturday.

Reece Cameron’s penalty put Jets 1-0 up after 25 minutes but the game was level at half-time after Carl Mensah’s corner managed to sneak all the way in.

In the second half, it was another corner that brought about the second goal for Harpenden, this time Tarik Dallas getting a decisive touch to the delivery to turn the game around.

Jets pushed forward in search of an equaliser, but their willingness to get forward backfired on them as Ryan Plowright chipped in a third for Harpenden to hand them the three points and keep them in the mix at the top of the table.

Leverstock Green were defeated in stoppage time on Tuesday night as they lost 1-0 away at Biggleswade United.

Lorrell Smith scored the only goal of the game to hand Green just their second defeat since the start of November.

It was a better outcome for Green on Saturday afternoon, though, as they scored twice late on to record a 3-2 win away at strugglers Dunstable Town.

Sixteen-year-old goalkeeper Adi Connolly took his place between the sticks in the absence of regular goalkeeper Matt Fallon, and he confidently claimed an early corner and was on hand to deny Daniel Trif the opener inside the first 10 minutes.

The opening goal of the game came on 21 minutes when Frankie Jowle’s cross found Conor Blake, and he drilled his effort into the bottom corner to secure his first goal for the club.

Connolly was penalised on 40 minutes when he came racing out of his goal to block Ben Collins’ effort, but instead up ended the player leading to Chris Stapleton levelling the scores from the spot.

Dunstable were awarded another penalty just after the hour mark when Jack Stevens appeared to win the ball in the area, but the referee saw otherwise, and Stapleton again fired past Connolly to give Dunstable the lead.

It was going to take a big effort from Green to get anything out of the game now, but they gave themselves a chance on 81 minutes as Jowle floated a free kick into the area and Stevens bundled home.

That gave the visitors some impetus, enough so to find a winner just three minutes later. Jowle sent a corner into the box and Luke Peerless came crashing in to thump a header past the keeper and seal all three points.

Bovingdon advanced to the third round of the Anagram Records Trophy with a thumping 5-0 win over Sporting Hackney on Saturday.

The Middlesex County Football League Premier Division side managed to hold Bovingdon until the break, but the hosts ran riot in the second half.

They took the lead when a cross from the left deceived the goalkeeper and went in at the near post before extending their lead further shortly after.

Connor Goodliffe added a third when he curled into the bottom corner from the edge of the area and they got a fourth with a thumping header from a corner before adding the final touches with a fifth.

Berkhamsted maintained their 100% home record so far in the Southern League Premier Division Central with a routine 3-0 win at home to Daventry Town.

The hosts got their noses in front on 20 minutes when Dan Akubuine popped up on the right side of the box to fire home his first goal for the club.

Jonathan Lacey doubled the lead soon after when he evaded a number of challenges in the middle before powering through the heart of the defence and finishing well.

Lewis Toomey thought he had added a third for the home side only to be thwarted by the offside flag, but he wasn’t to be denied in the second half as he followed up from his own saved effort to notch his 22nd goal of the season.

Tring Athletic needed just a single goal to beat Welwyn Garden City First on Tuesday night, thus advancing to the semi-finals of the Herts Charity Shield.

Luke Dunstan got the all-important goal, tapping home after Marcus Melling’s towering header had bounced back off the woodwork.

Tring also got back to winning ways in the league on Saturday after successive losses to Harpenden Town and Leighton Town, thrashing London Colney 5-1.

Max Mitchell opened the scoring on 15 minutes from the penalty spot after Dunstan had been brought down in the area.

Mitchell then notched a simple header from Jay Lovell’s free-kick to make it two, and Melling opened his account for the day from Mitchell’s cross.

Terry Dixon crashed home a fourth on 41 minutes and Melling finished off the scoring just before the break, giving Tring an unassailable lead.

Colney improved after the break as they looked to recover some pride, and they got a goal for their efforts with a late penalty, but the game was well and truly over long before.
