PRINCE REGENT inflicted another blow to Eureka's Hackney and Leyton League title ambitions on Sunday as the Premier Division sides fought out a 2-2 draw at Victoria Park.

Eureka, last season's London Sunday Intermediate Cup winners, began the new campaign with hopes of challenging for the league championship, but the Hackney outfit have now won just once in four matches this season.

That miserable sequence was extended last weekend despite a double from Eureka striker Chris Williams, as Prince Regent battled to claim a share of the spoils through goals from Garry Clayton and Jamie Wakefield.

Lapton narrowed Clapton Rangers' lead at the top of the Premier Division to a single point following a 4-0 Dalston derby victory over Three Compasses, while Wentworth Arms continued an encouraging start to life in the top flight by moving into third place.

Wentworth recorded a 5-2 Tower Hamlets derby win over Bancroft as Dominic Asemboh hit a double and Darius Freeman, Gilly Williams and Ashley Diamond were also on target. Playmaker Kadir Jama got both Bancroft goals.

St Georges scored two late goals to beat Albion Manor 3-1 and last season's Premier Division runners-up Black Meteors overcame Old King John's Head 4-1.

In Division One, newcomers Real Romania trounced Midfield 9-0 with Ionut Coropeano scoring four, while Tony Scully proved the match-winner for Army and Navy with both goals in a 2-0 defeat of FC Metwin.

Mile End fought back from a first-half deficit to beat Wounded Knee 2-1 thanks to goals from Whiston Hendry and Clifford Merry.

Division Two leaders Delta kept up their great start to the season with a crushing 6-0 win over Old George, while FC Highstone went one better with a 7-1 thrashing of FC Lockers.

Homerton Rangers climbed to second in the table after coming from behind to win 2-1 over Leyton Trades, while Hospital Tavern and Athletico Angels fought out a 2-2 draw.

The game of the day in Division Three saw the much-improved Wenlock Arms continue their outstanding campaign with a 3-0 defeat of in-form Hoxton Foxes. Harry Turner, who scored four goals last week, bagged a brace for Wenlock.

Tottenham Phoenix moved into third after a 3-0 win over Royal Boys, Jay Cubed shocked Maynell with a 4-2 victory, while AFC Knights were 3-0 winners over Aberfeldy.

In Division Four, there were wins for Regents Park Rovers and Cock Tavern.

In the first round of this year's Intermediate Cup, Clapton Rangers beat Hammersmith 3-1 but Club 93 went out of the competition after an 8-2 loss to Reddot.
