Inter Lucia's hopes of lifting a first East London League title suffered a major setback as the Division One leaders slipped to a shock 3-2 defeat by mid-table Crownfield

Inter Lucia's hopes of lifting a first East London League title suffered a major setback on Sunday when the Division One leaders slipped to a shock 3-2 defeat by mid-table Crownfield.

Reigning champions Meath United were unable to take advantage as they were not in action last weekend, but early leaders Clapton Rangers reignited their title challenge with a 3-1 victory over Hackney Downs.

In Division Two, all three of the borough's promotion-seeking sides recorded victories.

Arbour Athletic scraped a 2-1 win over Holloway, Ricky Field scored twice as East Moore recorded an emphatic 4-0 triumph over Hackney Downs B, while White Swan and Cuckoo hit eight goals without reply in a demolition of Haggerston Park Lions.

In a clash of the Division Three title contenders, Springfield and Millwall Albion met in a real six-pointer and it was Millwall who did their promotion hopes a power of good as a pair of second-half goals gave them a 2-0 victory.

But the pair still trail Stoke Newington, who retained top spot with a 3-0 victory over Concordia.

The day's highest score came in Division Three as Byron Athletic crushed East End United. Byron slammed 20 goals past their hapless opponents in a 20-2 victory. Adriatiku also stayed in contention despite fielding only 10 men as they overcame East Moore's B side 5-3.

In Division Four, leaders William Fitt Tigers put double figures past bottom club Chettle Court Rangers with a 10-3 success, while New North Rangers cemented their hold on second spot following an 8-3 victory over Acorn.

New North were being held 2-2 at one time, but pulled away through a Ricardo Goffe hat-trick, two apiece from Gregory Moorse-McDougal and Alfie Moss, and strikes from Scott Doody and Tashan Lewis.
